Taking the Fight to the Enemy!

Taking the Fight to the Enemy!

There is something inherently evil about a faith that uses unarmed, 84-year-old priests as propaganda fodder for a global Jihad. But that’s what two Islamic extremists, soldiers of the so-called Islamic State, did on July 26th, 2016. They stormed into a church in a quiet suburb of Rouen, France, and forced Father Jacques Hamel, who […]

400… and Counting!

400… and Counting!

PPF’s Emergency Borehole Repair team in the Nuba mountains has worked tirelessly through one of the most dangerous fighting seasons in more than five years of conflict to provide safe water to thousands of Nuba families. We recently received a report from the team leader that the 400th repaired well has been passed! Many broken […]

Relief for the Church in Karkarai

Relief for the Church in Karkarai

Last month, we told the story of the battle for Karkarai, a town in the Nuba mountains which is home to a large Christian community. Although the Sudan Armed Forces were driven from the town, thousands of homes were destroyed, and 4,950 families were displaced. We recently distributed 7,000 relief kits to bless the internal […]

Our New “Normal”

A couple of months ago, we issued an urgent appeal for funds to purchase an important device needed in the war-torn Nuba mountains of Sudan. Dr. Tom Catena at Mother of Mercy Hospital, the only referral hospital in the Nuba mountains, had worked for eight years without the benefit of a skin graft meshing machine. […]

“Why Are You Here?”

“Why Are You Here?”

In God’s mysterious providence, a recent PPF outreach to the Nuba mountains of Sudan coincided with the biggest ground offensive by the Islamist government in about five years. The Nuba was attacked at six different points. But rather than turn around, our team pressed on, often having to take rough trails to bypass the fighting. […]

The Winning Side

The Winning Side

By Brad Phillips Recently, I received a card from a couple who have been long-time ministry partners of PPF. Their kind note was filled with encouragement and prayers for the safety and success of our team. But what encouraged me most was how their card ended: “It’s good to know we’re on the winning side.” […]

More Dignity for Women!

More Dignity for Women!

We have been blessed with an outpouring of support for PPF’s new Dignity Drive for women. This effort, to provide our sisters living in war zones with access to safe, reusable feminine hygiene solutions, has been well received. Each kit provides a woman with a soft, hygienic solution for up to three years! On behalf […]
