This morning we have been working with the men in South Sudan, on the current situation. On Sunday the congregations of the two churches in Yei were scattered due to the insecurity, and lack of food coming into the country from the borders being closed for several days. Most of the women and children are fearing for their lives, and many of the men have started relocating them to places of more safety. I spoke to Pastor Joshua Longa yesterday and he informed me of his plan to relocate his family to Kajo Keji. This morning I spoke to him and he failed to make it to Kajo Keji due to the roads, so they went to the Kaya border with Uganda and the family crossed into Uganda as refugees. They will be processed and placed into a refugee’s camp. Joshua has returned to Yei where we are planning the evacuation of another family tomorrow. Please be in prayer as they travel these roads for their safety. There is no fuel being sold except on the black market, and it is very expensive. For a year now we have only been able to get funds into the country through a business man in Uganda that has a branch in South Sudan. Now this business is closed. We have no way at this time to get more funds in to help our people. We seek your prayers as we continue to minister to the needs of the saints. We will be back in Africa in 17 days. We are still in need of a vehicle for Uganda, ours in South Sudan may not be allowed out of the country and if it is allowed out it can only stay in Uganda for 2 months. We are thankful we have the vehicle in South Sudan at this time that it can be used to help these families.
