UPDATED WITH OBITUARY, FUNERAL SERVICE: Suspect in murders of Goshen's Michael Sharp, two others arrested - Goshen News

Monday, May 01, 2017

Dover, Delaware, funeral home we sat by a borrowed coffin containing MJ’s remains. Here Michele had a healing mental conversation with MJ. Perhaps the bright sunshine softened our grief. But nothing tempered the autopsy report of MJ’s violent death. My anger compounded my grief, and so I carry this in my wounded spirit.“Because the exact date of death cannot be determined, we are choosing March 15. The ides of March seems a fitting context.”The memorial service, 4:00 PM, Saturday, April 15, will be livestreamed from a link on hesstonmc.org. A slide show will begin at 3:30.Sharp’s obituaryMichael Sharp’s obituary was posted to Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encylopedia Online. The obituary follows.“Michael Jesse “M. J.” Sharp: Mennonite Central Committee volunteer and United Nations contract employee, was born 29 October 1982 in Elkhart, Indiana, USA to John E. Sharp (15 July 1951- ) and Michele Lynn Miller Sharp (27 March 1954- ). Michael was the middle child in a family of two daughters and one son. Michael was kidnapped 12 March 2017, together with five other persons as part of a United Nations (UN) investigation into armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). On 28 March 2017 his body, along with the body of UN colleague, Zaida Catalán of Sweden, was found in a shallow grave outside the city of Kananga in the DRC’s Kasaï-Central province.Michael Sharp was raised in the home of a pastor and historian, and grew up in Mennonite centers like Harleysville, Pennsylvania, Scottdale, Pennsylvania, Middlebury, Indiana and Goshen Indiana — locations where his father pastored and then served as Director of the Archives of the Mennonite Church-Goshen. His mother was a physician assistant. M. J. graduated from Bethany Christian Schools in Goshen, Indiana in 2001. He went on to Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) where in 2005 he earned a BA in history, with a minor in German. He later earned a MA in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution at Philipps-Universität Marburg in Germany.After graduating from EMU, Sharp worked for three years with the Military Counseling Network in Germany, a project of the Deutsches Mennonitisches Friedenskomitee to serve U.S. soldiers based in Europe who sought discharge from military service for conscientious objection or other reasons. From August 2006 to early fall 2008 he was coordinator of the project.From 2012 to 2015, Michael Sharp served as Eastern Congo Coordinator for Mennonite Central Committee. This included working with other agencies, such as the Peace and Reconciliation program of the Congolese Protestant Council of Churches, a program that sent people into the forest to persuade rebels to come home. It is reported that Michael’s team persuaded 1,600 rebel soldiers to return to their homes.In 2015 M. J. began contract employment with the United Nations, serving as an Armed Groups Expert in the United Nations Group of Experts on the DRC. This group was appointed by the U.N.’s Security Council to investigate new violence in Kasaï-Central Province that began after government forces killed Kamwina Nsapu, a tribal chief and militia leader, who had resisted DRC President Jospeh Kabila. The UN Group of Experts on Congo, established in 2004, has consisted of six experts appointed by the UN secretary-general to monitor the Security Council’s sanctions regime for Congo and to propose individuals and entities to be added to the sanctions list. The experts collect and analyze information about armed group activities, their networks, arms trafficking, and those responsible for serious human rights violations.In March Sharp and his colleagues planned to document the militia’s alleged use of child soldiers, to investigate massacres of unarmed civilians by government forces, and to seek dialogue with stakeholders such as militia leaders, religious figures and civil society groups to promote peaceful solutions. M. J. was the ...
