Crisis in South Sudan
There has been a great deal of internal conflict in South Sudan over the past several weeks. Violence among soldiers in the capital city of Juba has spread terror there and into other parts of the country. More than 1,000 have been killed, many people have been displaced and humanitarian needs are pressing.
You can respond to this crisis through the Presbyterian Relief and Development Agency (PRDA). To send such a gift click here or send a check through the Presbytery office, marking “South Sudan Relief” in the memo portion.
This link from Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, made before the recent outbreak of hostilities in Juba, will help you understand the situation. http://vimeo.com/82003944 Most important, please pray for the people of South Sudan, for our partners in SSPEC (South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church), and all others who are working to respond to this crisis.
