Pray for Sudan
As Kevin mentioned on Sunday, the referendum (vote) for independence for Southern Sudan is taking place this week. Though here in the US it takes us just one day (most of the time) to hold an election, there it will take all week since many will have to walk or ride bicycles to distant polling places. Our missionary Tony Frietas has been in contact with the Sudanese pastors we work with and reports that the reforendum is going smoothly in the far south near Labone, but fighting has broken out on the border farther north. Please pray I Timothy 2:2 which instructs us to intercede for national leaders so the church might exist in peace and expand God's kingdom. If you'd like to read a first hand account of the referendum by a World Vision worker in Juba, Sudan, you can find it here.
