Sermon Illustrations

Over the years, God has opened up some amazing doors for ministry for me to be involved in. One such opportunity was to go to Africa a few years back to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. When I arrived in the capital city of Kinshasa, the first thing I noticed was a number of troops from the United Nations walking around with weapons. These troops were “peacekeepers”. They really weren’t successful--and still aren’t. I read a news article this past week that in spite of these UN “peacekeepers”, thousands are still being slaughtered at the hands of rebel troops and warlords who are attempting to gain control of the government and nation.
