The Christians of the Southern Sudan
The Conference wishes to place on record its gratitude to God for the faith and courage of the Christians of the Southern Sudan during the past years of testing of the Church.
The Conference sends to them and to the many thousands of their fellow Sudanese the assurance that in their suffering and the loss of homes and schools, hospitals and churches, they are not forgotten in our prayers.
The Conference rejoices to know of the tireless efforts of the Sudanese clergy, evangelists, teachers, and other church workers in their task of proclaiming the gospel of reconciliation, both in the refugee areas and in the heart of the countryside.
The Conference prays Almighty God to lead the responsible authorities speedily to find a just and lasting solution to the existing problem.
