Headlining today’s news, Khartoum’s fundamentalist Islamic regime is preparing to launch a major offensive to permanently eliminate the opposition in southern Sudan. According to reports, the government is building up advanced weaponry along the Nuba Mountains. Voice of the Martyrs Todd Nettleton says it’s something they’ve been expecting. “Because of all the bomb activity in south Sudan. It seems like the targeting of Hospitals in particular. And, it does appear that the North Sudanese armies are planning and even beginning a fairly major offensive into South Sudan.” Nettleton says despite the threats, people are coming to Christ. VOM is assisting in that effort with physical and spiritual aid. “We are carrying in medicines and the blankets, but we carry in Bibles. We carry in discipleship materials, Gospel literature and we’ve also been involved in some pastoral training seminars to help train the pastors there.”
