Blessed are the peacemakers.

I have a long standing love and respect for Invisible Children.

Last week, in the bombings in Uganda, IC lost one of their guys, Nate Henn.

I didn’t know Nate. But I know and love my friends at IC, and working at Mocha Club– we have a deep love for IC as co-workers on the continent of Africa.

It could have been any of us- IC, Mocha Club, Compassion, Blood:Water – any of us could have lost a friend. Sad. Sad. Sad.

Today, 17 of my friends from Midtown Fellowship head to Uganda, including my roomie Laura and two of my besties, Emily and Marisa, and many others that are important to me.

So, please, take a moment and pray.

For Invisible Children, for the family and friends of Nate Henn, for the staff of IC as they deal with this internally and externally.

For our team headed to Uganda- safety, health, protection, all of it.

Have a great weekend. And hug the ones you love.

Today is International Justice Day. Take a few minutes to watch this video from Mocha Club.

    Wow. How beautifully sad. Thank you for sharing it. Several months ago, it looked as though the fighting there was finally going to end. I continue to pray that one day very soon, it will. God bless them all and God bless Nate.

    The sadness here because of his loss cannot compare to the joy in heaven at the coming home of a son.
    Thank you for sharing this, Annie.

    Agreed, how beautifully sad. I teared up watching because I could really see his love for others in his words, actions and eyes. May his work (God’s work) continue through Innocent.

    Thank you for this post. I went to Mocha Club Blog and saw that video as well. It’s so easy to forget what we know to be true and reminders are necessary to keep our focus on international help sustained. Thank you again for posting this.
