When the world shuts down amidst fears of a deadly pandemic, one would expect this would be the worst time to start a new campaign.
But you have made it possible for PPF’s ministry to continue.
At the time when East Africa was closing borders, issuing stay-at-home orders, and ordering curfews, Persecution Project’s team loaded 30 metric tons of medicine in Nairobi, Kenya, and began the long and arduous trek to the war-torn Nuba mountains of Sudan.
The Nuba have been in a government-manufactured health crisis for more than 30 years, so the Coronavirus is just another challenge to add to the list of hardships.
Despite all the official closures, our trucks and flights were given special authority to move, keeping our logistics chain open.
In almost record time, all 30 tons were safely delivered to the Nuba. Within a few days, these life-saving meds will be distributed to 185 clinics— including seven small hospitals serving an area with a population of more than 1.7 million souls.
Persecution Project supplies 80 percent of the medicines making it to the Nuba, so you can imagine the joy of our brothers and sisters to receive help when all doors were assumed closed.
Last year saw some of the worst rains in Sudan’s recent history. The downpour turned roads into swamps and delayed many of our outreaches by months. And yet, recently, with virtually the entire world at a stand-still and disruptions everywhere, a 30-ton shipment of medicine was able to reach our brothers and sisters in a few short weeks.
This example reminds us that God is in control. With God’s help, even the impossible becomes possible. COVID-19 is no match for Him. His ways are mysterious to us at times and His plan hidden from our limited view. But this latest encouragement we received assures us that we can trust Him— always.
The pictures enclosed show our team members loading and unloading our latest medical consignment. We hope this encourages you to put your trust in the Lord, no matter how difficult life can become.
