country of Sudan, already enduring seemingly endless civil war, is being devastated by a
jihad led by the militant Islamic regime in Khartoum. Their tactics include aerial
bombardment of citizens, scorched earth and destruction of livestock, forced
displacement of over three million people, abduction, imprisonment, torture,
execution of men, abduction and enslavement of women and children, and forced Islamization
and conscription. The government justifies its reign of terror and Sudan persecution by
claiming that it is a "divine mission" in the name of Allah.

all the way to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. But God may have other plans. The
Church in the Sudan continues to grow at an amazing rate. The wildfire spread of Christian
faith in the ruins of Southern Sudan is captured in these lines from a song by Sudanese
Christian Mary Alueel: "God has not forgotten us. Evil is departing and holiness is
advancing. These are the things that shake the earth." Sudan persecution still
exists, but the movement passionately goes on.
