(Sudan)–Our newscast begins today in southern Sudan where the food situation continues to deteriorate to alarming levels. Evangelical Free Church of America’s Jim Snyder says the drought aggravates the need which is reaching a critical point, prompting a call for help from a sister church in Sudan. “Their president has contacted us and requested assistance because of drought in that area right now. We are currently purchasing grain in northern Uganda and trucking it in to southern Sudan.” Fundraising is underway, which Snyder says, ultimately gives the local Sudanese church body an opportunity to evangelize. “As we have gotten involved there, we’ve seen a tremendous increase in the awareness of the local church by people who normally do not attend church, and it’s been a real bolus to the activity of the local church.” Please pray for staffers involved with this project as there remains a danger of attack by the Khartoum government.
