    Pray for the Persecuted Church - July 17, 2017 -

    From The Voice of the Martyrs monthly publication, July 2017, Special Photo Issue:

    "The pastor's voice cracked as he was overcome with emotion. Unable to continue the funeral service, he passed his Bible to the pastor next to him to continue. But the pastor, also fighting back tears, had to pass the Bible along to another man.

    The Sudanese Christians had gathered to mourn for five children, all killed as they ran for shelter during a government bombing. Although death and destruction were nothing new to these believers in the Nuba mountains, the loss of the children was especially difficult.

    Since 2012 the Sudanese military has dropped 4,000 bombs in the region so the people there have become accustomed to daily bombings. The children recognize the sound of approaching government planes and can even tell by the sound of the engine when a bomb has been loosed. When they hear the pitch of the engine suddenly change they run for the shelter of a foxhole; every hospital, school, church and home has one nearby."

    Please pray for the Christians in the Nuba mountains who endure almost daily bombings. Pray for the pastors who are called on to comfort those who mourn. Pray for the children who live with such unbelievable danger, fear and uncertainly each day. We can only wonder what lifelong trauma they will sustain from these childhood memories.

    "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these...And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them." -Mark 10:14,16

    Please take time to see a picture of these Sudanese children in their bomb shelter. You will find it on the bulletin board in the hall that leads to the youth rooms. Thank you for your prayers - may you be blessed as you pray for these precious members of our persecuted family.
