They Slaughtered Them Like Goats

They Slaughtered Them Like Goats

Like you, we were horrified to read of the fate of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well as of British citizen David Haines, at the hands of the Islamists of ISIS. Worse, to see the terrible images of the beheadings and the warning of more to come! What disturbed us most are [...]

The Nuba Mountains’ Lost Boys

The Nuba Mountains’ Lost Boys

We know children have long been a part of warfare in Africa. Normally, child soldiers are recruited by dissident or rebel groups fighting against an organized traditional army. Not in Sudan. The Sudan government is actively recruiting minor children to serve in its “Rapid Support Forces.” The RSF, as it is called, is nothing more [...]

Delivering Hope in Sudan

Delivering Hope in Sudan

Wherever we look in the world, there seems to be chaos. Ebola is out of control in West Africa. Boko Haram continues to terrorize and murder thousands in Nigeria. The Central African Republic is still unstable. Israel is at war with Hamas. The Ukraine situation threatens to restart the Cold War. The terrorist organization ISIS [...]

Take heart!

Take heart!

“In this world you will have tribulation. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33b

“Not Crawling Anymore”

“Not Crawling Anymore”

“I am a 35-year old Christian and still single. I came to (this refugee camp) with my brother on April 24th, 2012 after war broke out in the Nuba mountains.

Another Summer of Service

Another Summer of Service

As the summer months wind down, PPF has concluded the most successful (and varied) season in our history. Multiple communities were served in South Sudan and in the Nuba Mountains. In the month of June alone, we conducted seven emergency relief flights, transporting tons of medicine, Bibles, NFIs (non-food items like blankets and mosquito nets). [...]

200!

200!

A couple of months ago, we reported that the PPF safe water team had repaired 175 broken wells in the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan. Today, we can rejoice again in hearing the news that the 200 mark has been reached!  About 18 months ago, we began to repair broken well pumps, setting an initial goal [...]

The Dilemma of Freedom of Religion in Sudan

The Dilemma of Freedom of Religion in Sudan

Editor’s Note: The following is an excellent commentary on the issue of religious freedom (or the lack thereof) in Sudan. The tragic case of Meriam Ibrahim has shown a spotlight on the lamentable human rights record of the current regime in power. Most people don’t realize how diverse Sudan is and the rich heritage it has [...]

PPF Protests for Meriam!

PPF Protests for Meriam!

PPF joined several organizations demonstrating outside the White House and the Sudan Embassy in Washington D.C. to protest the imprisonment of Meriam Ibrahim and her two children near Khartoum. Meriam’s plight captured the world’s attention, as she was under sentence of death for “converting” to Christianity and marrying a Christian. Meriam’s husband is an American [...]

More Emergency Medical Flights

More Emergency Medical Flights

Your giving continues to make a difference! In June, PPF conducted more emergency medical relief flights, including one to the hard-hit county of Panyagor in Jonglei State. There are more than 30,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Panyagor. PPF flew in vital medicines to serve the 15 medical care facilities in the county. Thank you [...]
