ICC Note: Continue to pray for South Sudanese pastors Peter Yein Reith and Yat Michael who stand charged with spying and various crimes against the state in Sudan, which could sentence them to death. Even still, the pastors told CharismaNews they are not afraid to die, thankful that God has called them to suffer. The trial was delayed until June 15 so that the prosecution could gather more evidence against them.
6/3/15 Khartoum, Sudan (CharismaNews) – Two South Sudanese pastors possibly facing execution in Sudan said they are not afraid to die. They’ve been charged with “inciting organized groups” and “offending Islamic beliefs.”
Pastors Yat Michael and David Yein spoke with Sr. International Correspondent George Thomas by phone from their Khartoum jail cell.
Michael said he has suffered psychological intimidation and hasn’t talked to his family for two months. He was accused of spying when he was arrested last January.
