The rebel army has begun kidnapping all of the men of certain ages in Pajok, where our school is, and conscripting them to serve in the military. This information was just received in an email sent on the cell phone of one of our Pajok workers who is in hiding.
Most of our staff has already safely escaped to Uganda. We are urging all of the Christians in that area to go into hiding and make their way into Uganda and from there to the closest UN refugee camp. Two camps are fairly close to the South Sudan border, and we have churches and workers in both of them; so the new refugees will be able to quickly identify with fellow Christians when they arrive.
