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). […]

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 […]

2013: A Year of Surpassing Expectations

2013: A Year of Surpassing Expectations

As 2013 came to a close, it ended one of the most active and successful years of ministry to date. We are grateful for all that God has allowed us to do — surpassing all of our expectations. Throughout the year, we’ve updated you on various projects — including our outreaches to the embattled people […]

Logistics is Ministry! For Lack of a Nail…

Logistics is Ministry! For Lack of a Nail…

For lack of a nail the horse lost his shoe. For lack of a shoe the horse was lost. For lack of a horse the rider was lost. For lack of a rider the message was lost. For lack of a message the battle was lost. Much of ministry work in remote areas of Africa […]

Thank You!

Thank You!

After sending out an emergency appeal for $25,000 to help PPF receive a large medical consignment valued at $2.2 MILLION, you gave– and gave generously. After only a couple of weeks, PPF raised $28,581.34. Praise the Lord! And it gets better. While awaiting the arrival of the shipment in question, one of our partners, Voice […]

Giving with Wisdom

Giving with Wisdom

Poverty is Africa’s biggest industry. Every year, $ billions flood into Africa in the form of government and privately funded charity. Hundreds of thousands of short-term missionaries, doctors, educators, and aid workers fly in to do what they can for some of the poorest people in the world. The Bible says much about the poor, […]

Into the Void: Part I

Into the Void: Part I

Void: An empty space. What I just witnessed never happened. You won’t read about it anywhere in the news. No one is talking about it. Yet I just returned from seeing the biggest humanitarian crisis going on in Africa today… and most of the world is doing nothing about it. Several weeks ago, I wrote […]

A Year-End Appeal

A Year-End Appeal

By Brad Phillips As I write these lines from Nairobi, Kenya, I am envisioning what things must look like back home in the States. Doubtlessly, small towns are putting out Christmas decorations. People are taking down the lighted reindeer lawn ornaments from their attics. Retailers are pulling out all the stops to lure consumers in […]

Rain, Rain, Go Away…

Rain, Rain, Go Away…

From about May to early December, Southern Sudan has its rainy season. And sometimes when it rains, it just keeps raining. After weeks and weeks of soaking rain, the ground is saturated and the land becomes just one big mud bog. The sticky mud, called black cotton, will suck one’s shoes right off his feet. […]

Serving God in the Best of Times & the Worst of Times

Serving God in the Best of Times & the Worst of Times

By Brad Phillips, President PPF Dear Friend of the Persecuted, I have something very important to share with you. I feel like I’m living in Dickens’ Tale of Two Cities because right now, it’s “the best of times and the worst of times.” It is the “worst of times” because despite the assurances from several […]
