Linda Murray is Elim Missions' fundraiser. Linda's hope has been restored because of God's call for us to go. Here is her story.
In February of this year I was standing in the city of Goma In the North Kivu province, the very eastern edge of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The DRC is known as the ‘rape capital of the world’, where every week thousands of women are raped by militia and armed rebel groups using sexual violence as a weapon of war. Women who experience this brutality are often left with physical ailments, pregnancies and life changing diseases.
The last few months have seen a lack of rainfall across many countries in central and southern Africa resulting in a terrible drought that has left many without water and food.
We asked two Elim missionaries to tell us how it has been living through a drought. Jackie Griffiths is in Malawi working with Hope Village and Clair Oates is a nurse working with Challenge Ministries in Swaziland.
