Things remain quiet here in Bamako, however the situation in the north of Mali continues to deteriorate. It is estimated that 120,000 people have fled their homes and are now living as refugees in neighboring countries or other parts of Mali. The Malian military is now responding with a lot of force…sometimes too much force. Yesterday, a Malian helicopter gunship mistakenly fired on a refugee camp killing a little girl and injuring ten others.
The latest UN map shows a dire situation in the north. Mali is in desperate need of peace. Please join us in praying for our country.
