CNV Bunia, Congo 2015A large gathering in Bunia, Congo was celebrated September 20th for prayers for peace in the DRC. The Rev Dr Njojo Kahwa was the preacher and many people were affected by the message from 5.38:48 of Matthew where Jesus gives the important principles of nonviolence to peace.

On September 21st they celebrated through a series of peace conferences for students of Bunia universities and other intellectuals interested in the establishment of peace. Several themes were developed by scholars of Bunia. Participants recommended that another conference be organized so that they have more time to discuss the subject of peace in workshops.

In the slides below you will see the various participants as well as people participating in a folk dance after the conference.
