Sudan Update from Missionary Steve Greenberg (Click here to Listen)
Listen to an amazing testimony of how God is using the missionary teams in Sudan. Sudan is currently one of the most persecuted areas in the world for the body of Christ. Please remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in the Lord.
The Problem: Driven by war, the lives of half a million victims in southern Sudan, many of them defenseless children, are held in the balances as severe starvation threatens their lives today.
The Muslim extremists in Khartoum see themselves as waging a holy war against the Christians in the south, who refuse to be bound by Islamic law. Because of this, relief flights have been blocked and millions of people are presently starving to death.
This is reality…Rumors of coming shipments of desperately needed food bring thousands of people, mostly women, streaming in from the countryside hoping to get relief for their families. The majority by the end of the day will leave empty-handed. The food gone. The hunger still exists. As we speak, hundreds are dying each and every day.
What are we to do?
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for our brethren. But whosoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:16-18
The Solution: To the Sudanese Christians this means that you share what you have with those who have less. It means encouraging other believers when life’s circumstances offer little hope. We can no longer ignore or turn our backs, unable to deal with the horrific situation…rather we must embrace the suffering of our Sudanese family and be participants. We are to enter into their suffering, as if it were our own.
Because starvation and death are occurring today…we must act now as we look to the body of Christ to meet the need. We are asking that you direct your response to help by giving of your resources. All funds will go directly toward meeting the critical food and medical need that exists. Checks can be sent to:
