South Sudan: Two Nuns “Killed in Cold Blood”

08/19/2021 South Sudan (International Christian Concern) – “Our sisters were killed in cold blood,” Sister Christine John Amaa of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus told Vatican News.

According to the news source, Sister Mary Daniel Abut and Sister Regina Roba were travelling with a group of nine sisters when gunmen ambushed their minivan on August 16th,  along South Sudan’s Juba-Nimule highway.

Mission Network News also reported the incident, adding that a troubling trend of increased jihadist attacks is emerging in the country.

“Islam is now invading South Sudan. They’re saying South Sudan is a strategic place and that [it] will be the gate to Africa [so that] Islam can go to all of Africa,” a believer told Mission Network News.

“Pray for us, that the Lord may raise believers in South Sudan to come and do the work of the Lord.”
