ICC Note: Several Christians in South Sudan decided to go out in the streets to preach about peace, repentance and reconciliation. Many Christians and other civilians are victims of the civil war in Africa, where they are constantly terrorized by the Islamic extremists. Christians are usually targeted by the many terrorist groups because of their faith, but they are also discriminated by other civilians for the same reason, making them a double target in the area.
9/14/2016, Nigeria (Christian Post) – Hundreds of Christians in the town of Yei in South Sudan reportedly wore sackcloths in a mass demonstration calling for repentance, urging God to forgive the war-torn country as human rights atrocities continue to be exposed.
Radio Tamazuj reported on Monday that Christians took to the streets of Yei on Saturday, with Pastor John Sebit Edward of the Christian Revival Centre quoting from the Bible and urging his fellow citizens to seek God for wisdom, reconciliation and repentance.
“We want to bring the nation of South Sudan before God by putting on sackcloths as a symbol of humility, wisdom and repentance so that God can forgive us to develop South Sudan together,” the pastor reportedly said.
