Freedom Seeking Friday (Kony 2012)

This man has been circling the web... everywhere you look--Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs-- Joseph Kony is being exposed. He is being made "FAMOUS"... not to bring glory to him but to bring attention to him. He is a Ugandan guerrilla group leader, head of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). He has been kidnapping children for 26 years. The girls are being made into sex slaves and the boys are having weapons thrown into their hands. He is forcing them to kill. Not just random people... their friends, their families. I know this is a long video but it is completely worth it. I have been here. I have seen these children's tears. I have held those whose families were taken from them. Please be praying for my Ugandan babies and let's continue to make Kony Famous so that these horrid situations can cease. Pray for restoration in these people's lives. Pray for comfort for these children and Ugandan people. A comfort that can only come from the one who created life.

Follow this link to watch this and learn about Kony and what he is doing... it will change your perspective and your life!

When you hear Ugandan children... don't just think of a random African kid. Look at these faces... see their hurt. Their sadness. Their fear. Now think of them when you are hearing about the children being taken into unimaginable situations!
