You probably won't hear about it much in the news, but we are helping the people in South Sudan, where families have been living in a particularly severe and overwhelming crisis for more than a year now.Christians and many other families have been forced to flee from their homes, over 2 million are forced to live in horrific conditions. Recent flooding has forced some mothers to sleep standing, holding their babies. The UN estimates that 4 million Sudanese (literally the whole population of NZ) are facing famine and are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. These horrendous figures can be so difficult to grasp. The scale of suffering of these predominantly Christian communities is...almost beyond comprehension. We need to be reminded that these are real people, people like you and me, with a heart and a faith.

Pray for the team in Angola as they commit to build new runways this year in order to open more services to remote communities, including the Flying Doctor Service run in cooperation with the hospital (Lubango Evangelical Medical Center).
