Anne Crane has joined a travel seminar through the PC(USA) to the eastern Congo, to learn about and participate in the work being done to address sexual violence in this area.  With our partner, the Church of Christ in Congo, PC(USA) mission co-workers seek to interrupt the cycle of violence and begin a season of reconciliation.  You can follow their travel blog by clicking here.
