The three mission communities the Josephites serve in the Kasai region in central Congo (Ilebo, Domiongo and Bulongo); they are now very close to where recent outbreaks of violence and rebel activity have increased considerably. This is all about national politics of the nation which has a dictatorial president clinging on to power beyond his mandate. It is very depressing and distressing. Please could you pray regularly for the safety and welfare of our Josephite Confreres and the many thousands of families and children they serve that they be safe and also be able to function. These are the communities I visited back in February/March.
