I am Gato Corneil Munyamasoko and I serve as CBM’s Africa Peacebuilding and Reconciliation Specialist working in Rwanda, Congo, and South Sudan among CBM’s partners. I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your continuous prayer and faithful support of CBM. Please pray for the participants of our peacebuilding programs. May they actively seek peace and reconciliation as they interact with their neighbours and communities. Pray for the pastors and district leaders as they lead peacebuilding activities. Pray that God will continue to give our partners in various African countries strength and inspiration as they continue to serve in the midst of violence, poverty, and conflicts between neighbouring countries in the great lakes regions.
Sri Lanka is reporting its worst economic crisis since gaining independence in 1948. The shortages of cooking gas, fuel, milk powder, essential medicines, and daily power outages in addition to the resultant snowballing rate of inflation have made daily living a challenge to a large segment of the population.
Spring is a time to remember God’s faithfulness and rest in the hope that God is doing a new thing. While we witness the new life springing up around us, our hearts are also heavy as we witness the destruction and chaos unfolding in Ukraine.
I would like to take a moment to thank you for your continued generosity and support. Whether through the Hopeful Gifts for Change Catalogue, The Christmas Match Campaign or the Hopeful Gifts Church Campaign, your giving through 2021 is impacting lives around the world.
It is now one year and eleven months since I was sent by CBM to work with a new partner in Congo which is called “Baptist Churches Community in Eastern Congo”. This denomination had been split in two since 1997 until 2018 due to ethnic conflict where one group was called the majority and the second group the minority.
Cries of celebration filled the land when the new nation of South Sudan officially came into existence on July 9, 2011. Six years later, tears of joy have turned to sorrow as the country has been torn apart by fighting, suffering and now famine. After such a hopeful start, what went so horribly wrong.
