New Waves of Terror

These are frightening times for many people in Colombia.

In cities across the country, pamphlets thought to come from a neo-paramilitary group litter the streets, threatening imminent social cleansing of undesirable “delinquents” such as drug users, sex workers, and homosexuals.

Church partners in Urabá have informed us of a supermarket bombing by a presumed guerrilla group that took place on Saturday, seriously injuring many people.

Please lift up the people of Colombia in your prayers, and find a way to take action to support them. Here are a couple of suggestions:

Plan to celebrate the Days of Prayer and Action for Colombia, April 19-20 or whenever you can.

Send a message to our embassy officials in Colombia urging them to do something about the widespread threats.
