Breach of Peace: Hundreds Killed in Southern Sudan
Prayers requested for our friends in Sudan. Elizabeth and Megan are reporting that at least 300 people were killed in clashes between Sudan's army and former rebels in the port town of Malakal. For the BBC article just on-line today, click here. Malakal is about 200 miles south of Renk, where we send our teams to teach the biblical languages. I emailed back to get additional details from Elizabeth, who has now reminded me that three of the best Hebrew students on her trip were from Malakal: Peter and Michael in Megan's class, and James from her class, whom she recommended to advance to the upper level class. As far as we know, these folks are safe for the time being.
