Emergency Help & Prayers Needed by Sudanese

On Oct. 9 a conference-wide special offering will be taken to aid people caught in the horrible fighting in South Sudan.  Funds are needed for many emergency causes, including to provide a temporary "safe place" in Uganda for children who escaped from 2 UMC-supported children's homes in South Sudan.  United Methodist missionary Fred Dearing reports that "There is no food or medicine coming into the country and we are looking at massive famine.  And the fighting continues."
"Those who will suffer the most are the poorest, especially women and children," the Archbishop of Canterbury recently said.  "Those who pursue violence will face the judgement of God in answer to the cries of the souls of those whose death they have caused.  They [who are fighting so violently] can still turn back: with our voices and our prayers to Jesus the Prince of Peace, let us call on them to do so."

As Pastor Tom reminded us in our October newsletter, "God's love won't walk away...and neither will we."

Here are some links with additional information about what United Methodists can do to help our Sudanese brothers and sisters:
