Trapped Between Two Wars

Trapped Between Two Wars

Since June, 2011, the Nuba people in Southern Kordofan, Sudan, have endured a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing and persecution from the NCP regime in Khartoum. Dictator Omar al Bashir’s call to “take out the garbage” — referring to Nuba residents — sparked a series of massacres of thousands of ethnic Nuba in the state [...]

Help for the Nuba

Help for the Nuba

Since June 2011, the Nuba people who inhabit the mountainous region of Southern Kordofan, Sudan, have been under seige. It’s not a civil war between opposing tribes, nor is it merely a “power struggle” between rival factions battling for supremacy.

By Ed Lyons “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” (1Timothy 4:12) I have often heard young people in church described as “the future” of the congregation. I think we make a mistake if we don’t see them [...]

Building a Nation – one heart at a time!

Building a Nation – one heart at a time!

July marked South Sudan’s second anniversary as an independent country. The new nation has faced Herculean challenges over the last two years, from internal security problems to financial scandals.

Loving Individuals – Not Statistics

Loving Individuals – Not Statistics

By Brad Phillips I hate statistics with a passion. This is especially the case in measuring suffering. Take Sudan for instance. A multi-generational war killing more than 3 million, displacing millions more, etc. Millions illiterate. Millions without access to clean water. Millions needing anti-malarial drugs. Millions, millions, millions, etc., etc. War is not about statistics. [...]

Prayer on the Mountain

By Brad Phillips My Thanksgiving holiday was celebrated rather quickly here in Nairobi with my family because within a few days I was headed back up into Sudan. Destination: The war-torn Nuba mountain region. This area has been under siege since the SAF forces and NCP militants began carrying out Bashir’s instruction to “clean up [...]
