The number killed is still unknown, but some say that at least 3,000 people have lost their lives.
Samuel, a young pastor with AIC, has started a small school in the town of Likwangole in Jonglei State, along with 5 churches, in the area.
Pastor James shared with us that all five church buildings have been burned down, and they do not know how many of the congregations have been killed. Samuel is safe, but overall about 60,000 have been forced from their homes.
This is why working with local believers like Pastor James is so critical. We have advanced emergency funds to AIC to help the believers in the midst of this crisis.
Please pray with us for an end to the fighting, and for AIC’s leadership as they provide aid and work toward reconciliation between the two tribes.
