Topping the news today, evangelical humanitarian groups are stepping forward to condemn Sudan’s bombing of a Christian school in the south. 14 people died in the attack. Voice of the Martyrs’ Todd Nettleton says an end to the Islamic violence isn’t expected. “I think we’ll see continued attacks and continued violence. And, I think we’ll see continued outcry from the international community calling on the government of Northern Sudan to allow these people to worship freely.” Nettleton says despite the war the Sudanese church is growing. However, the people have great needs and they’re doing what the can to help. “We distribute life packs, which contain what one family needs to survive. Also, it contains a Bible so that they can have not only physical food, but spiritual food as well. The second thing is called the Blankets of Love program. We’re asking Christians to donate a blanket and to donate two-dollars to cover the shipping.”
