The Cry of a Nation

A hidden world has collided in full force with the physical in the war over South Sudan. Two camps of people previously unknown now wrestle on the world’s stage. Though the country is new, their conflict began decades ago. Though the struggle has been played out in guns and blood and lives, its roots are deeply spiritual. The war they wage is a fight for liberty.

The South Sudanese people have sought and fought for the right to live without oppression and – like Israel in the land of Egypt – for the ability to “go and worship” their God. (Ex. 8:1) This July, as we celebrate our independence, we will share the story of the South Sudanese: a story that echoes our own. And we ask, as you discover the heart of this nation, that you will lift up these brothers and sisters in Christ who share the heart’s desire that is so close our very own. The cry for freedom.
