I frequently hear news of violence near Goma. A few days ago, rebels attacked a UN base and murdered three soldiers with machetes. Today, international organizations announced that 150 women and girls were raped in a small village just south of here. Soldiers entered their community and systematically sexually assaulted all females in front of their families.

Despite the proximity of this horrific violence, I feel very sheltered. My personal safety is rarely in danger.

    I really do hope you are sheltered. I was horrified watching the news yesterday to hear that 200 had been raped. Please be careful. In my prayers always you and your fiancee.
