Rescuing and serving persecuted Christians since 1995

ICC Note:

 

Sudan is known as one of the most repressive countries in the world towards Christians. Last year Sudan ranked number 5 on the World Watch List by Open Doors International. It has also consistently been a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) to the U.S. because of blatant and heinous Human’s Rights Violations each year, especially towards Christians. Amidst this persecution and hostility, there are still people willing to follow Christ and reach out to others.

 

07/06/2017 Sudan (MissionNetworkNews)-  Sometimes the greatest patriots don’t even live in their own countries.

Take Pastor Strong, a Sudanese believer with a passion for his God and his people. Strong and his team are working with refugees and communities to spread the truth and hope of Christ, though pressure from the local government can present a serious challenge.

“The government in Sudan wants to Islamize the whole population and they want to finish off Christianity and other faiths in Sudan,” Strong says. “We have to put pressure on the government so that the rights of the people to practice their faith openly will be given to them.”

For that, they need the support of the global Church, especially believers in the West. For now, “They are in the midst of trials, persecution, hunger — a lot of problems. And yet in the midst of all that, they rejoice.”

Strong says he is continually amazed at how much believers in Sudan and nearby nations are willing to sacrifice. “They’re always ready to die, and they testify their faith in every circumstance,” he says. “They are willing to serve no matter what they have and what they might lose.”
