CPT invites you to pray for the families of the people killed for demanding a better country. 

On 9 September 2020, the police murdered Javier Ordóñez with blows and electric shocks while he begged for his life. In two days of protest, 13 protesters died from live ammunition police shot at them. The country is in mourning. In 2020, Colombia has suffered 55 massacres and more than 200 assassinations of social leaders. The rulers have chosen war and repression. Consequently, the country laments, is in mourning, and has been made desolate by its government.

Isaiah 3:25-26
Your men will fall by the sword,
  your warriors in battle!
 Her gates will lament and mourn;
  desolate, she will sit on the ground.

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
