Christians in the Crosshairs: Pastors Face Execution for Spreading Gospel

[Editor’s Note: The following article recently appeared in the major online news source The Daily Beast (formerly Newsweek) and has generated quite a buzz as more and more people are waking up to the reality that the only real difference between the Islamist government in Sudan and ISIS is that Sudan has a seat at […]

United We Stand

United We Stand

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1) The year 2016 was another record-breaker for PPF ministry outreaches. We met or exceeded all our goals in every program category. God was very busy working through your generosity to bless His persecuted! But the persecuted church in Sudan is […]

The Wicked Flee When No One Pursues…

The Wicked Flee When No One Pursues…

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1 Christian persecution is a reality in many parts of the world. But so is Christian boldness. In late August, a friend sent us a link to a Facebook account of a Sudanese man. The man had posted […]

The Wicked Flee When No One Pursues…

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1 The above blurry photo taken on a mobile phone outside a Federal Court in Khartoum is testimony to the fearlessness of Sudanese Christians.

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 […]

Our New “Normal”

On the evening of July 14th, the world learned of the terror attack in Nice, France, by an Islamic extremist. This tragic event killed 84 people and injured scores of others. In the wake of this terrible event, and so many others in recent memory, the conversation quickly turned to how people need to prepare […]

A Bittersweet Victory

A Bittersweet Victory

In the distance, we could hear the pounding of artillery and the short, three-round bursts from AK-47s. We asked some passing soldiers what was going on, and they said a great battle was taking place in Karkarai, a large community in Sudan’s Nuba mountains. Through the help of a guide, we skirted around the fighting and […]

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.” […]

Now You are Light in the Lord

Now You are Light in the Lord

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. […]
