Praying for Sudan

In Uncategorized on October 20, 2008 at 11:22 pm

Today is the day Operation World designates for prayer for the country of Sudan, where Trinity has new friends living. The situation in Darfur continues to require enormous prayer, but OW also calls attention to a lesser-known contemporary situation:

“Sudan’s leaders proudly boast that they are the leaders of the Islamic Revolution in Africa.”

Michael and Karen Masso [blog] and their three children have just moved into Sudan to open a new field for World Harvest Mission. The Massos were formerly members of the World Harvest Mission team in Bundibugyo, Uganda, where Trinity supports the Myhre family and Ashley Wood. If you pray for Sudan, remember the Massos and all the challenges they face as they settle in Sudan and begin to live at the fault-line of Islam and Christianity in Africa. Pray too for Bishop Bismark Avokaya, a Sudanese Anglican bishop with whom they are partnering. (Some of his prayer requests are listed here.)
