The 9th of July
Happy Birthday to South Sudan! We join with our team there in rejoicing over the end of decades of civil war, and the palpable sense of hope for the future. We also grieve that some ethnic groups continue to be targeted by violent aggression, particularly on the North/South border. Please pray that the launch of this new country would usher in a peace that allows children to survive, families to unite, villages to thrive, and a whole nation to taste a glimpse of the righteous rule of Jesus. And remember our team, on the ground in Mundri as witnesses to this birth.
