Shukran! That means, “Thank You” in Juba Arabic, one of the heart languages in southern Sudan. TWR has been enjoying an overwhelming response to our southern Sudan appeal for prayer and funds. We are blessed by the generosity and faithfulness of our precious family of supporters.
The Christians in southern Sudan are indeed hungry for help, and we are eager to respond to their cry! Considering the struggle and pain that the people of southern Sudan have endured over the years, TWR-Africa has been focusing on programs that deal with: leadership development, reconciliation, education, community development, and issues pertaining to families, women and children.
One of the most heart rending issues in southern Sudan is the existence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One of Sudan’s “lost boys,” who was orphaned during the civil war, recently completed his education in Denver, USA. He studied psychology with a focus on PTSD and has returned to southern Sudan to assist his people. When asked what the prevalence of PTSD is in his country, he says, “It’s almost universal.” This is a particular issue that families need help to overcome through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
