Disaster Worsens for South Sudanese - As government and rebel troops continue to battle over besieged South Sudan, 600,000 have been driven from their homes. To save their lives, they hide in the bush by day and spend nights trying to walk to the border and the refugee camps in northern Uganda.
We share this with you because of its effect on the cause of Christ. The Ugandan border is about 20 miles from the South Sudan Bible School and medical clinic. So far, our campus has not been damaged; but most of the citizens of Pajok have fled to the Ugandan refugee camps.
Our Bible school teachers have all safely escaped and are currently successfully teaching and baptizing many in the refugee camps. More information will be provided in the upcoming Nov/Dec Sudan newsletter.
Because of the large influx of refugees, unprepared UN relief agencies have had to implement stringent food rationing. They are now giving each refugee a meager $9 a day to buy food for a month. This is in a country where costs are much higher than in the United States.
Imagine trying to eat on $9 a month. Some of us spend that much just on coffee every week!
Isaya Jackson, one of our ministers working in the refugee camps, has written us about the deplorable, overcrowded conditions and the dangerous lack of food. The church in South Sudan is asking for help from any of us who can share.
