In November 2010 the Presiding Bishop initiated a Season of Prayer, Study, and Action for the people of Sudan. A referendum in January 2011 approved the birth of a new nation, South Sudan (set for July 2011). There were fears that violence would escalate as the legal separation of Sudan drew closer. Those fears are being realized.
Please continue in prayer, study, and action for the people of Sudan. Here are 2 recent articles from NPR to inform your prayers:
