Our brethren in the war-torn Nuba Mountains of Sudan need your prayers today.
Please take a moment to read this important update from our friends at Nuba Reports.
A massive offensive by the Islamist government forces has commenced, and government troops are now a mere 20 kilometers from the de factor "rebel" capital of Kauda.
Evidently this is the tour de force Khartoum has been threatening for months as part of their decisive "Summer Offensive" (the dry months in Sudan occur during winter in the West).
The lives of tens of thousands of Nuba residents are at risk. Already, government planes have been heavily bombing Kauda and other areas as a prelude to the ground offensive.
When you read these lines, please pause to say a prayer for our Nuba brethren and all the people of this troubled area. They have endured more than three years of continuous war by a regime that wants them "cleansed" from Sudan.
PPF will continue to serve in the Nuba through whatever corridors remain open. We read in the Scripture that the "heart of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." We need divine intervention right now to protect our friends and keep the avenues of help open for us to keep serving.
Will you pray?
