Prayerline-Jun-21-2016-02

DR CONGO

A prayer of thanksgiving from the Democratic Republic of Congo, as it was reported that three lives have been saved. Rev. Dr. Jose Da Silva from Canada, Rev. Jonas Musamba and Rev. Fataki from the Baptist Community in Central Africa were traveling to Butembo for a training session at the Katwa Bible Institute this morning. However upon approaching Butembo, one of the wheels on the plane remained stuck and it could not descend. The pilot then rerouted the plane back to Goma and performed a forced landing. It landed by the side of the runway after emptying the tank, leading to small damages on the plane but all passengers arriving safely. The wife of one of our national staff members was also scheduled to be on that flight, but circumstances had diverted her plans to another day. We are very grateful to God for this miracle.
