Children in the Congo that are too weak to hold a gun are given whistles and sent to the front lines of war. They blow the whistle if they see the enemy coming and, because of their placement at the front, are the first to take a round of bullets.
The organization, Falling Whistles, was created in order to raise awareness of this injustice. A group of five guys are traveling across the U.S. on their bicycles to raise awareness for the campaign for peace in the Congo. They are stopping by in Charlotte tonight for a potluck and night of sharing their passion for this cause at my house from 6-8pm.
I do not have very much time this morning to write more, but I ask for your prayers tonight as our hearts are burdened and (hopefully) will be driven towards action in whatever ways we are able.
