Mission Accomplished!

Mission Accomplished!

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.

“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.

By Ed Lyons “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.” Ephesians 5:8 My wife, Lisa, and I have good neighbors. They care about us. They pray for us. But not all of our neighbors live in close proximity to us. They span the country. […]

Crackdown on Christians Intensifies in Sudan

Crackdown on Christians Intensifies in Sudan

[Editor’s note: Our friends at NubaReports.org recently published a very informative story about the rise of Christian persecution in Sudan. News such as this should not surprise us, but it should motivate us to continue engaging in “Active Compassion” for our brothers and sisters.] — NubaReports.org Just a week before Christmas, security forces arrested Reverend Kowa Shamaal […]

34 Come to JLTC to be Baptized

Over the Christmas holidays, we received the encouraging news that the local Africa Inland Church in Lohutuk, South Sudan, brought 34 recent converts to the Jebel Lopit Training Center to be baptized.
