Just a reminder: the Ugandan peace process continues to remain unclear.  Basically, the two sides have come to an agreement on everything but what to do about war crimes.  Joseph Kony and four other LRA leaders have been indicted.  This is a tough situation, because really, charging someone with war crimes during the peace process doesn’t help both sides come to an agreement.  Western nations, and the ICC (International Criminal Court) think that punishment should be severe for Kony and his crew.  Some Acholi leaders have suggested Kony re-enter the tribe through a retribution ceremony: drinking a mix of sheep’s blood and tree root while apologozing to families. 

Most of the people simply want an end to the fighting.

Continue to pray for the situation, to alert your representatives of the injustice.  Let others know what’s going on…
