Sudanese Government To Tear Down 25 Churches

According to International Christian Concern, the Sudanese government has threatened to tear down 25 churches that are trespassing into residential areas.”  The churches are mainly in the Khartoum area.   The situation has gotten so bad, that they continue to move into South Sudan. 

In spite of the persecution against Sudanese Christians, William Levi of Operation Nehemiah Missions told The World View that all the unrest and animosity has exposed Sudan’s need for the gospel.   

“Our ministry, Operation Nehemiah, is there to be a beacon, of spreading the gospel and to bring the good news and to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ that transcends above tribalism. Not to mention the U.N.; they are there, entrenched in the country and causing so much division among the tribal lines.  So we are there to bring hope for the community that has been really stricken.”
