Nebraska Sudanese Council of Churches

Churches in Africa

God has opened the door to a wonderful and exciting opportunity for Cush Community Lutheran Church and Sudan Evangelical Lutheran Church which requires ELCA to expand its ministry into Sudan. We believe that our Lord is always far ahead of us, calling us to come along and send us out to serve and make more disciples (Mat. 28:19-20). Churches with Sudanese congregants are being organized in U.S. as well as in Africa. We have begun our first mission in refugee camps in Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan. When we learned that churches were being formed for nearly three years, Cush Community Lutheran Church and First Lutheran Church decided to send me over for a visit to see, encourage, and help organize new churches. There are three refugee camps in western Ethiopia near Sudan border where there are a total of seven churches with nearly of 2,780 persons and one refugee camp in Kenya and more in Uganda and Sudan.

The Sudanese Christian Persecution

The persecution and suffering of Sudanese Christians is not a thing of the past-- it's happening every day in South Sudan. It is tragic that we rarely hear anything about this in the mainstream press. We humbly hope to raise awareness of what is happening in South Sudan, and to record the remarkable spirit of the brave Sudanese Christian people.

We are currently involved in doing missionary and relief work in the war-ravaged country of Sudan. This is a place where innocent Christian civilians are being persecuted every day to the point of actually being considered genocide. Hospitals are bombed regularly. The Government of Sudan's army forces are involved in a systematic and horrible attempt to annihilate the Christian people of Sudan. Our brothers and sisters in Sudan are strong in spirit and hard working, but they are cut off from the rest of the world and are lacking access to medical doctors and supplies that could ease their physical sufferings.
