Give the Gift of HOPE for the Children of Sudan
Hope for the Children of Southern Sudan
In 2005 God spoke to the hearts of the members of Holston Conference of The United Methodist Church regarding the suffering taking place in Sudan and the needs of the Sudanese people. Since then, Holston Conference has been working actively in partnership with our brothers and sisters in Christ in Yei, Southern Sudan, of the East Africa Conference of The United Methodist Church. However, these people have been in war and have been suffering for many years.
During the 1980s, while America enjoyed relative peace and unprecedented prosperity, across our globe in the African country of Sudan, a civil war raged. Civilian homes were being burned to the ground, women and girls were forced into slavery, and thousands of young boys were fleeing their pillaged villages by foot. After walking more than 1000 miles seeking safety, food, and shelter, numerous boys found short-term refuge in Ethiopia. Escaping Ethiopian rebels and Sudanese child soldiering training camps, the young survivors eventually trekked to Kenya. This group of unaccompanied minors became known as
The Lost Boys of Sudan.
A Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed in January 2005. As a January 2011 referendum for separate nations north and south is contemplated, please continue to pray for the people of Sudan that they may know true peace in their land.
