Urgent Need in Sudan!!

6uhHi All,

This is an update from my Dad who is in Sudan right now.  His assistant, John, wrote this on our website www.grnconnect.org. PLEASE take the time to read this. Thank you!

Dear GRN Team,

We had an urgent need come up here recently. Within walking distance of our compound in Sudan, there is a Displaced People’s Camp where approximately 1200 people are starving and eating leaves and such for food (they cook the leaves from the trees). Kids there have the bloated stomachs as a result of the starvation. Tom said he hasn’t seen anything this bad since the war was occurring. The people have been displaced from land and home as a result of the LRA rebel group that you have heard so much about. These people are literally right in the “backyard” of our work in Sudan.

Tom and A.C. are leaving Sudan in the morning. They are 7 hours ahead of us on the clock (eastern time).

If you would like to give to help these people who are suffering in southern Sudan, please email me back as soon as possible. There is still time to give money to our field coordinator in Sudan who will use the money to help meet the urgent needs of these people. We have already received $1200 from a generous friend towards helping these people get what they need to survive.

Again, it is dinner time in Sudan now and Tom is leaving in the am, if you would like to join efforts with the money that has already been given, contact me asap and we will hopefully be able to get funds to our field coordinator before Tom and AC leave in the morning.

Please pray for these people and for wisdom for the entire GRN team in Loka, Sudan. Please forward this also to anyone you may think would be willing to give or pray.

Thank you for your prayers and generosity as we make a difference in Jesus’ name,

John
