Special Prayers for Sudan

April marks an important time for our friends in the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SPEC).  Easter brought a celebration of the resurrection, but it was also the deadline set by the government for all southerners to leave the north.  This will be very difficult.  SPEC also has important meetings this month culminating with the Synod Assembly (annual churchwide decision-making body) on April 26-27.  Please include SPEC in your personal and congregational prayers during April.
