Summer in the States is marked by rising temperatures and drier weather. But in the Nuba mountains of Sudan, it’s the opposite. Seasonal rains begin around May and typically carry on through November. This cools things down a bit and turns the brownish landscape into beautiful green.
But the rains also bring mud. Lots of mud. If you have been a part of this ministry for any length of time, you will know all about the rainy seasons in Africa. We call this time the “ministry of mud.”
Combine normal logistical challenges of washed-out roads with delays and cancellations from Covid-19, and we have had quite a few obstacles with which to contend.
But, as you will see in these photos, your “active compassion” is still making a difference. One reason for this progress is the consistent, faithful work of our team on the ground. Travel restrictions and closed borders have grounded most non-Sudanese from moving freely in and out of the country. But our Nuban team leaders and local church network in the Nuba have kept all our projects going— and going strong.
PPF is a ministry to the persecuted church. But being a “persecuted church” doesn’t mean an inactive, ineffective, docile, or pacified group of believers. In fact, in the case of the Nuba church, being persecuted means ACTION. The Nuba church is extremely active in bearing witness to the Gospel in word and deed.
Persecution Project is a partner, not a producer, of ministry to the persecuted. The producers are the persecuted themselves.
Of course, we could not even be a partner to the persecuted without your partnership with us!
