Heavy artillery is reported in the region where our colleague, Charlotte Barkley founded Bush Telegraph Mission. After many peace agreements, lack of trust and tribalism has resulted in continued broken promises that compromise state security. As our Cholera and feeding effort continue in Gudele area of Juba, ( the Capital City) widespread famine is mounting. Villages of Maiwut and Pagak brace for continued attacks from it’s own government in Upper Nile state.The suspected defection of a paramount chief in Aweil North (near the border of Darfur) raises great concern about the extent of complete destabilization since this is the region of the presidents own tribe. Government attacks on Nasser and surrounding areas pushed more than 20,000 refugees across the border into western Ethiopia in May, overwhelming aid agencies.Nasser was recaptured by rebels this past Sunday, 20 July, a move condemned by our own United States as ‘unacceptable.’ IMPACT - Our area of impact has been among many of the various tribes in South Sudan as indicated in BOLD - Maiwut and Pagok we have shared Christ and his love with hundreds during a youth conference and evangelistic outreach.

BLAME - Mass atrocities only happen when things have fallen apart: that is, when the state has lost the ability to protect its civilians or wants to harm them. In South Sudan we are witnessing digression of the worst savage atrocities. From babies being cut out from wombs to hundreds killed, point blank, on their hospital bed because of their ethnicity. As the “ Tribe of Jesus Christ” - We teach all tribes in South Sudan that we are niether Nuer or Dinka, Bari or Ku Ku, but one tribe with our home, not on earth, but in heaven - we are truly displaced for our time here on earth. We are nothing and our Father is King of Everything! PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for our efforts to empower native evangelists and our outreach in Gudele during great suffering. Pray for the country as destabilization continues at an increased pace. Pray for our increase of aid as a time of famine engulfs South Sudan. Pray for our colleuges in Faith Based Organizations that we are proactively attempting to partner with for the greater good of God's kingdom.
