The bishop of the diocese of Kadugli Nuba Mountains, the Rt Revd Andudu Adam Elnail Kuku, has embarked on a tour of the United States to raise awareness of the frustrating conditions that the people of Sudan are currently facing in their daily lives.
The Rev. Patrick Mauney, director of Anglican and Global Relations, welcomed the bishop to the Episcopal Church Center on March 3, saying, "We are delighted that you have been able to visit us and we hope that your month in the US will be productive and fruitful."
Andudu described how, although Sudan had experienced a relatively peaceful two years since the cease-fire, the evidence of destruction from the 20-year civil war is still prevalent. "Though Christianity is strong, many things have been destroyed and churches burnt down," he said. "One of our churches was hit by missiles, but still people are strong in faith and the Church is growing."
