Church leaders issue statement in the wake of escalating violence in South Sudan
December 18, 2013
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) deeply grieves the deaths of more than 500 people in the Republic of South Sudan and stands in prayer for the over 800 wounded there following recent outbreaks of violence in Africa’s newest country. The denomination is actively responding through World Mission, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and its partners, and is also calling for prayer for our mission co-workers, our South Sudanese church and ecumenical partners, and all South Sudanese people.
