Arrested in Sudan 2To view the PDF of this article as published in the Frontline Newsletter CLICK HERE

In Islamic Sudan, Rev. Hassan Abdelrahim Kodi and Rev. Kuwa Shemaal, activist Abdelmoneim Abdelmoula, and a Czech pastor named Petr Jasek, have been charged with conspiring against the state, espionage & spreading false information.

These charges are punishable by death or life imprisonment. These people are persecuted for the Faith.

Their trial started Sunday 21 August 2016. Please mobilize prayer for their protection & release.

 

On 5 September, armed police and officials from the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) arrested the headmaster, Rev. Samuel Suliman, and 12 teachers of a Christian school in Madani, capital of Al Jazirah state, in south-eastern Sudan and took over its property. Police presented a letter from the National Ministry of Guidance and Endowments, addressed to the State Ministry of Social Welfare, ordering the handover of Evangelical Basic School to the government.

 

The school serves more than 1,000 students. Established by the American Mission in 1901, it belongs to the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church.

Harassment, arrests and persecution of Christians have intensified since 2011. The Sudanese Minister of Guidance and Endowments announced in April 2013 that no new licenses would be granted for building new churches in Sudan. Since 2012 Sudan has expelled foreign Christians and bulldozed church buildings.

 

“Remember the prisoners
as if chained with them
- those who are mistreated
- since you yourselves are
in the body also.” Hebrews 13:3

The enemy tactics of
confuse, divide and conquer have created havoc in newly independent South Sudan. 9 July, marked the 5th anniversary of the Independence of South Sudan, yet there was little to celebrate as intertribal violence has continued to rage between the Nuer followers of Riek Machar and the government of South Sudan under President Salva Kiir. During the long war, Riek Machar and his forces served as surrogates for the Arab government of Sudan, who armed and aided them while they waged scorched earth campaigns against the neighbouring Dinka tribe, destroying vast amounts of cattle and looting livestock.

Corruption Leads to Conflict
After the first year of Independence, President Salva Kiir reported that over US $5 Billion was missing from the public treasury - looted through corruption! Suspicion immediately fell upon his vice president, Riek Machar and barely two years after Independence, the vice president and most of the cabinet, were fired. This immediately led to violence between the Dinka and Nuer elements of the Presidential Civil War in South Sudan 1Guard. The violence soon spilled over into ethnic cleansing and full-scale tribal war between the Nuer and Dinka.

Attempts at Peace Settlements Undermined
The churches of South Sudan have tried to bring about negotiations, reconciliation and numerous cease-fires have been declared. Unfortunately, these have invariably been violated and fighting continues.

Civil War in South Sudan 3Disastrous Consequences of Secularism
During this disastrous descent into civil war, the Arab government of Sudan have seized control of many of the oil fields close to the Northern border of South Sudan. Ministers in South Sudan express their frustration to us. At independence, ex-US president Jimmy Carter persuaded President Salva Kiir to appoint Riek Machar vice president. The new South Sudan government was also persuaded by Carter to declare themselves a secular state, to not have any prayer at parliament and to adopt the secular textbooks provided by UNICEF for their schools.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1

FreedFaith under Fireom Betrayed
After all the sacrifices of so many Christians to achieve the freedom and Independence of South Sudan, many feel betrayed by the secular humanism of the new nation and the devious and destructive counsel given by Jimmy Carter.

“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have Faith.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2

Christians in the Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan have been targeted by deadly air strikes and ground attacks.



Muslim militia shouting “Allah Akbar” have opened fire at congregations gathered for worship.

Nubans have fled to the Mountains & are hiding in caves.

Although geographically linked to the North, Abyei, South Kordofan and Blue Nile are culturally and politically aligned with the South.

Under Fire in the Nuba Mountains 1These areas are predominantly non-Arab and non-Muslim.

However, the Islamic regime in Khartoum wants the oil reserves in Abyei and South Kordofan and the water of the Blue Nile.

Therefore it has done everything in its power to prevent their exercising the right to self-determination.

Dear Friends


Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

"Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples." Psalm 96:3


Answers to Prayer
It is always encouraging to receive testimonies of God's grace and see abiding fruit of previous Missions. During our recent month-long Mission throughout South Africa, we were tremendously blessed and challenged by numerous testimonies of God's gracious answers to prayer.



Christian Education
One of our hosts told us how she was challenged at the Biblical Worldview Seminar we ran in the Transvaal in 1996, to start a Christian school. Next year they will celebrate 20 years of Ichthus Christian School. Our team members remarked that that they had not experienced such incisive questions from school students on field reports and insightful interaction with students over the Ten Commandments and Gospel presentations before.
