(Sudan)–We begin today in Sudan where tragedy has struck a Christian relief and develop organization working there. World Vision spokesman Dean Owen. “World Vision regrets the death of one of our colleagues, Charles Kibbe of Kenya, who was killed Monday, July 29th, while working in southern Sudan’s Upper Nile region. Mr. Kibbe was an employee of World Vision and most recently served as the director of World Vision’s community health program in Waat. World Vision also regrets the disappearance of three additional staff during Monday’s incident. We are working closely with key parties in the region to help secure the safe return of the three staff, one of whom was Kenyan and two are German. This tragic incident underscores the importance of ensuring the safety and security of humanitarian workers. World Vision urges all parties in the region to work for the prompt and safe return of these humanitarian workers.” Pray that God will use this tragedy to lean many to Himself.
