Yesterday 18 MAR - U.N. peacekeeping chief stated that the brutal killing and abuse of
thousands of civilians sparked a government campaign to vilify the United Nations.
A short recap: Fighting broke out Dec.15 among presidential guards in the capital Juba
and quickly spread across the country. Soon it took on ethnic dimensions between the
dominant Dinka tribe who support President Kiir and the Nuer tribe loyal to Vice President
Political polarization that has been caused by the conflict now affects the lives of every
single person in South Sudan as well the operations of the government, country, Non
Governmental Organizations and Faith Based Orgainzations such as Mercy Partners.
Due to this, a scheduled Mercy Mission to deploy next week has been postponed.
We ask for Prayer for:
• The native evangelists of the many tribes we have empowered so that they are not
hindered to spread the Victory Message of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.
• Our ambition to establish a base of operation in “ near country” and for the funding needed
to support the endeavor of Mercy.
