Please pray ... and then help

One of our Christ-centered partners working in East Africa is asking for prayer after deadly attacks on a Christian college in South Sudan. They are requesting specific prayer for injured and traumatized survivors, as well as for the families of those murdered by soldiers from the Sudan People's Liberation Army.

Members of Sudan's "presidential guard" also raped two 14-year-old girls on the campus. In the aftermath of these heinous attacks our ministry partner in the region reports:

"The government has pleaded with (the Christian college) to not suspend activities, promising protection. ... Pray that there will be sufficient protection and that the school will be able to open again. ... Pray that God would surround (the staff) in His comfort as they take well- deserved rest and come to terms with the terrible events. Pray for physical and emotional healing for the girls who were raped."

Later this month, the college reportedly will begin a trauma-care program to help bring healing to those affected. They're praying for "justice to be done" and "for the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of those who perpetrated the acts of violence." Remarkably, staff members and students want the soldiers "to see their need for the salvation Christ alone offers."

As I've stated previously, the targeting and persecution of Christians worldwide must be stopped. But the Western Church also needs to support our brothers and sisters in harm's way. That's why Liberty Relief International wants to help mitigate pain and suffering in South Sudan. Please support our efforts to get relief aid and discipleship materials to the persecuted this month!

P.S. The final prayer request I want to share with you relates to the "perseverance of (the Christian college) to continue classes" in an effort to "be a source of great encouragement" in South Sudan. Amazingly, this group of brave believers wants to see these horrible attacks bring God glory. Please stand with us to help provide relief aid and discipleship materials to persecuted brothers and sisters in Africa.
