How can a community be restored after years of trauma? With the nightmare of air attacks echoing in their ears, the Nuba are healing through the discipleship tools of the Messenger Lab.
Be Strong and Take Courage
The In Touch Messenger Lab in South Sudan
Targeted by the Sudanese government to the north for political and religious reasons, Nuba Christians and their Animist neighbors are struggling to recover from the air attacks that ended in 2017. Coupled with the attacks was a government effort to starve the Nuba, a challenge that persists today as most humanitarian aid is blocked from entering the region.
But hundreds of pastors are standing with their community to bring care and comfort through the gospel. With the tools of the In Touch Messenger Lab, these local evangelists bring the hope of Christ through the Messenger audio Bible, trauma healing programs, and our Life Principles Conference.
“Teach me Your way, Lord,
And lead me on a level path Because of my enemies.”
— Psalm 27:11
“The insight I have received from God as a result of listening to this [the Messenger] is that God wants to redeem the whole world. No single tribe is left out.”
— Philip Komi, Nuba pastor
With your help, Nuba pastors are sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Messengers encourage persecuted Christians and provide a tool for the Muslim and Animist people to practice their Arabic while listening to God’s Word. With the truth planted in hearts, Christ is making salvation known to thousands. Pray with us as God moves.
