Independence for South Sudan
98.83% of South Sudanese voters chose secession from the Arab North. The historic Referendum concludes the longest war, in the largest country in Africa. The Southern third of the country will celebrate its independence on 9 July this year. By God’s grace we have stood with the beleaguered believers through some of the worst days of vicious persecution and we have helped them – not only to survive the relentless Jihad - but to thrive. By God’s grace the culminative effect of many years of intensive prayer, worldwide publicity, international pressure and missionary partnership with courageous persecuted Christians in South Sudan has been blessed with victory.

We praise God that in the last three months of 2002, we managed to complete three major mission trips into Sudan. The third mission trip in December involved a team of eight, delivering Dinka Bibles, audio visual evangelism equipment, study Bibles and bicycles for pastors. Their leadership training and child evangelism was especially blessed.
