Move D.C!

So, I'm in this group on campus called Bella Joy. They work with woman in sex trafficking, but also help with other organizations. One group they help is called Invisible Children, which is connected with the Kony 2012 campaign. Anyone heard of it?

Kony 2012 and Invisible Children is a group started a few years ago to raise awareness about the children in Africa (mostly Uganda) who are forced to fight in a war commanded by General Kony. The war has been going on for many years, and the children in Kony's army are brainwashed and forced to kill innocent people. The children who live in the country or small towns walk to the village every night to sleep in order not to be taken to fight.

Move. D.C is an event Invisible Children is putting together November 17th to raise greater awareness for this horrible problem in Africa and enlist the help of the nation's leaders. On the 17th, thousands of people in support of Invisible Children will walk around the capital in D.C, lobbying for those who cannot speak up. What an awesome opportunity to speak up for justice and truth! The event is free, and the Kony 2012 website has a lot of information on where to stay, eat, and how to get to D.C on their website. Check it out!

Some people from our club our going, and I wish I could, but it's right before Thanksgiving break. Keep this event in your thoughts and prayers though, and rememer the children in Africa who are forced to kill their loved ones and are living in a kind of Hell. What can you do, where you are, to stand up for truth and justice? Not only for these children, but for other people too?

Who will shine Christ's love in his life of death and despair?
