KHARTOUM, SUDAN (Worthy News)-- After earlier denying that it had bombed civilians, last week Sudanese aerial strikes targeted church buildings and schools in Kauda, South Kordofan state.

Antonov aircraft dropped bombs on homes and livestock near churchs and schools in an "ethnic cleansing" campaign against non-Arab peoples in Sudan's multi-ethnic state. As a result, the churches are holding worship services early in the morning and late at night to avoid these aireal attacks.

To date, Sudanese Armed Forces have destroyed 10 churchs, 17 mosques, 73 villages and 48 schools, resulting in an estimated 185,000 refugees fleeing from South Kordofan and the Blue Nile states into South Sudan and Ethiopia; the U.N. estimates the conflict has created nearly 400,000 refugees, most of them in danger of starvation.

Following last year's secession of southern Sudan, Christians in Khartoum, notably those from the Nuba Mountains, live under uncertainty as they approach the April 8 deadline to either leave Sudan, or become its citizens and live under shar'ia.

Sudan's Interim National Constitution considers Islamic law as a source of legislation for policies that often favor that religion.

  1. Heavenly Father, I lift up these people who are cruelly being driven out of their schools churches and homes.  I ask for their protection and deliverance from these persistant tyrants who wrongfully embrace the false gods in Islam.   I also ask that you. Heavenly Father,  would strike fear in the hearts of those who are stubbornly refusing to respect you and your people, that you would strike them with a frightening sensation of what eternity without you feels like that they will know the truth, what is really at stake here (souls, eternal destination of souls...) obviously, these terrorists have not discouraged your people in Sudan from worship, for they still hold church services, just at safer times...may you be glorified Lord, no matter what the cost, for your children would lay down their lives for you if it coms to that...nonetheless Lord I ask for great mercy in this situation.  May souls be ministered to, may they know the Truth, EMBRACE THE TRUTH, THAT NO ONE SHALL COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT FOR THROUGH HIS SON CHRIST JESUS , for the Truth shall set them free!  To God be the glory, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
