Nuba Update ~by Vicky Bentley

We made it back from our trip to encourage our chaplains in the Nuba Mountains. Pastor James Olal stayed on because we met with impassable roads. Please pray God will anoint every second of his ministry there and every encounter with the precious saints.

We only were able to see a few of the men - but those few men challenged us greatly! Thank you for your prayers - we heard over and over again that God specifically and powerfully answered our prayers.

I asked Chaplain Jaber Tutu, “What is the greatest evidence to you that God has been with you this last year while you served at the front?” He replied, “Eight bombs were dropped within a meter of where I sought shelter and not one of them detonated.  This happened in three different cities. Only God has that kind of power to protect His servants!”

Please continue to pray for the people suffering in Southern Kordufan, Darfur, Blue Nile, and Abeyei...

The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men.  From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. No king is saved by the multitude of an army; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength.  A horse is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.  Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.  Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our Help and our Shield.  For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.  Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in You.   
Psalm 33:13-22
