Kony 2012

I was blown away by the love and selflessness portrayed in this video. Kony 2012 is all about a young man’s burden to help draw attention to the atrocities committed against children in Uganda.

Jason Russell came face to face with these children who are often snatched away from their homes and forced to join the Lord’s Resistance Army (L.R.A), a rebel group headed by Joseph Kony. Moved to compassion for these kids, Jason made a promise to do what he can to bring an end to this evil.

There is no way I can do justice to this video. All I could think of was the love of Christ for His children and how we are truly created in His image. What would move another human being to this level of selflessness? May God help us more accurately reflect the beauty of His Son. Please do what you can to support this cause.

  1. I have tried twice to leave a comment and both times it wouldn’t work! Third time is a charm, I guess…

    Thank you so much for posting this, Chidi. I am so moved not only by this particular movement but also by the love and passion shown here (as you said). THIS is exactly what God made us to do – to love and to come together in love to help others! Real love cannot remain still, cannot ignore pain and injustice. Just amazing!! Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God!! I pray that the Lord’s hand will be on this and that His perfect will will be done! I ask Him to protect and purify this movement and keep it from wrong paths, deception and selfish motives. I also ask the Lord to make His Spirit fall on ALL of us, so that His love spreads like wildfire and ignites the whole world! I ask that every person committing evil acts be convicted of their sin and turn from it to the Lord in repentence and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior! I ask for every person being oppressed in any way to be set free! And, I give myself to the Lord completely for HIS purpose. Lord, use me! Use us all! We are yours. Help us to remember that each one of us is important. We want to move out in love. Let your will be done! We are willing to do whatever it takes. Fill us with your love. Let your Word live in us fully! Move us in your will. Lord, have mercy! Come quickly! We need you. This world is so broken. Come with your healing, freedom and restoration into every dark corner of the world!! In Jesus’ name – Amen.

    Wow…hope there’s nothing wrong with the blog! Apologies Natalie. I’ll make sure the settings are ok.

    What a prayer though!! I really say a massive amen to your prayers. Lord use us to do your will and fulfil your plans and purposes on the earth. You’re so right in saying that it is not possible for real love to see injustice and wickedness and not want to do something about it. I pray that God’s perfect will be done through this movement and the countless others that are reflecting the Love and mercy of Christ all around the globe. Thanks again Natalie

    • I am so sorry if I sounded accusatory about not being able to post my comment…I really didn’t mean it that way. I know it was my fault. I think I wasn’t logged in or something :) I am not very technology-saavy. It is really quite funny that I have and maintain a blog!
      Blessings in Christ!

        Not at all Natalie! Please don’t apologise for anything. I was just wondering if I mistakenly changed my settings or something. It was good you told me, honestly. Lol @ not being technologically savvy! You’d be surprised what you could do when you’re passionate about something!

    I was one of the first folks to be impressed by what Kony 2012 stood for and the message in the video. I was also one among many who wanted to spread awareness by posting it on our fb pages. However, there is a lot of allegations that circles around this organization- especially that they they fully support general Museveni’s (who has given them access to Uganda). General Museveni is responsible for more deaths in Uganda than Koney himself who has been drafting children into the military long before Kony. There are also concerns about how they are utilizing their funds. To top things of, the main figure behind the organization and the video has been arrested this past week for behaving erratically in San Diego. Here is the Guardian article about the incident!
    The only reason I decided to comment to this post is because, I would want to hear it – to make sure what I did was accomplishing good and not evil. I hope this is not offensive Watchmen. You do such an amazing job to keep us informed and is a blessing to me every day through your posts. God bless!

    Wow…thank you so much for pointing all this out to me. You’ve obviously paid far more attention to this movement than I have. I simply got moved by the selflessness of it all and didn’t do a lot of research on the organisation. What I’m even more gladdened by is the fact that you chose to share what you know with the ret of us. Others might have avoided it so I’m real glad you didn’t. I will do my homework on this group. It will be a sad thing if it is indeed true that all of this is standing on the wrong motives…real sad! But at least I hope that the central message of loving our neighbours enough to do something about their plight is one that we can all learn from. Thanks again Anye. Will do more homework next time.
