Sending of Melanie Kampen (ask her to share)
Colombia is one of the most violent places in the world.
It’s a land flowing with with blood and conflict.
A country that has been at war with itself for over 50 years.
It is also a country where God’s people have a deep longing
for peace and reconciliation.
And where God’s people proclaim boldly
that the Gates of Hell will not prevail.
Where there is hope for healing.
And a longing for solidarity from the church worldwide.
We stand in solidarity with the church in Colombia
in their longing for peace.
Melanie will be going on a Study Tour to Colombia for about three weeks in August (11)
As you go we want to send you
with our blessing and our prayers.
May this blessing go with you:
As you go to Colombia,
May God’s Spirit of boldness and confidence go with you.
God has called you and placed a burden
and concern for world peace
and Conflict transformation on your heart.
We encourage you to embrace God’s calling for your life
and to go with our blessing and prayers
as an ambassador of Reconciliation
in the name of Jesus Christ.
Prayer for Melanie
· Safety on the trip
· Prepare her heart and mind for the challenge
· Creativity, openness, learning

· Peace in midst of conflict in Colombia.
