A Hope That’s Greater Than ‘Getting Kony’

This post is taken from the ‘New Hope Uganda’ website. I hope it affects you with the same sense of true hope that it gave me. Justice is essential, but only forgiveness brings freedom in a truly broken world.

This below response video cost $0 to make. There is no kit for sale. No bracelet to wear. No poster to put up. There is no one to make famous.

Charles is a former abducted child soldier who through the grace of God has chosen to forgive his captors rather than seek revenge. We believe that the weapon that will change the issue of Kony and the many children affected by his atrocities is the releasing power of forgiveness.

You may wonder if we believe Kony should be brought to justice. Absolutely! We praise God that Invisible Children has helped bring these atrocities into the light once again, and we pray that this campaign will help end Kony’s efforts to steal, kill and destroy. But more importantly is the transformation only God can bring to the lives of the numerous children scarred by the actions of Kony and the LRA. Truthfully, if healing and forgiveness doesn’t take precedence in the hearts of these former child soldiers, then we can expect revenge and hatred to rule and Kony’s own victims to rise up in his place.

Mozambique’s Evangelical Hospital Needs Your Support

This video below pretty much says it all. Charles Woodrow is an evangelical doctor from the USA who left a comfortable life to serve those who could never repay him… kind of gospel-like, don’t you think? Please watch the video and give as the Lord has enabled you. But regardless of whether you can give or not, please don’t move on from this post without stopping to pray for him and for the hospital. Here is real and genuine need, and the gospel is the only thing that can give hope to this country.
