I (Rt. Rev. Abraham Yel Nhial) want to appeal to South Sudanese political leaders, that if you believe in God, you must also believe that killing is a sin. Can you believe in God and not believing that killing is a sin? You all the times go to church to pray, what really do you pray for? What does God means to you and your faith? I thought that you, our leaders in persons of President Salva Kiir and Dr. Riek Machar knew what God’s will is for you in your leadership as leaders of our beloved nation over the last eight years? It is very unfortunate that both of you are forgetting why God gave you this responsibility to lead this nascent and fragile young nation.

Greetings in the Precious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! I would like to thank pastors and Christians of Kakuma, for their warm welcome. I appreciate their hospitality and please keep it up. It is very unfortunate that the forgotten war has resumed itself in the newest nation of South Sudan caused by politicians. I feel greatly honored to have been the one who went for the mission to Kakuma. Continue reading “THE MISSION OF RECONCILIATION IN KAKUMA REFUGEE CAMP, KENYA”

Theme ‘God Save Our Nation; South Sudan”
It is after we have heard about the devastation and destruction war that erupted in Juba on December 15th, 2013 and extended to Bor town on the 18th December, 2013 and later to Bentui that we the undersigned bishops needed to add our voice and alarm the world that South Sudan is in crisis and needed urgent intervention. We the bishops and clergymen from South Sudan called this urgent meeting under the theme “God Save Our Nation of South Sudan”. We are seeking peace and ceasefire urgently and welcome the world to intervene and put an end to the rampant killing of innocent women, children, disabled and the elderly people that are dying without cause and the abuse that is now going on across the Country.

Christian friends of Bishop Abraham and South Sudan:
Our hearts are heavy this morning as we prepare this Sunday to worship our Sovereign and Loving God for the loss of one of our saints. Kuol Deng Kuol, the beloved paramount chief of the Nine Ngok Dinka, of the disputed region of Abyei was killed in an ambush on May 4, 2013. Abraham is the Bishop of the Diocese of Aweil and Abyei. Kuol was a personal friend of Abraham’s and both he and the South Sudanese people need our prayers today.
Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written:
Because of You we are being put to death all day long; we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.No, in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us.For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
Please pray for the martyred Kuol Deng Kuol and his family, Bishop Abraham Nhial, and our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters in South Sudan.
We thank God today for the prayer warriors for our South Sudanese Christian brothers and sisters.
From our hearts in Christ’s precious name,
Martha and Bill

“At the time a gift will be brought to the Lord of Hosts from a people tall and smooth-skinned, a people feared near and far, a powerful nation with a strange language, whose land is divided by rivers — to Mount Zion, the place of the name of Lord of Hosts.” ISAIAH 18:7
“If the Lord had not been on our side
when men attacked us,
then they would have swallowed us alive
in their burning anger against us;
the torrent would have swept over us;
the raging waters would have swept over us.
Praise the Lord,
who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.”
