ICC Note:

In Juba, South Sudan, a Kenyan Bishop was brutally murdered while visiting a local church. This comes quickly on the heels of the government declaring that they will strongly enforce rules in order to curb climbing crime rates. This rising crime rate has led to major safety concerns for all Christians in South Sudan. They need constant prayer for safety, as nowhere is safe. Our prayers go out to the family of the deceased for comfort and strength in this time of grief.
