Last Saturday and Sunday a meeting was called for all Sudanese to come to historic Zion Church.  This is the Church that was built in the early 1990's where the Sudanese came to burn their idols and decided to worship God. This site is just 1 mile from MCH.

Last Saturday and Sunday, 2 big days of prayer were held at Zion Church.  Many Sudanese came from Bor, Juba, refugee and Internally Displaced People (IDP) Camps to pray at Zion Church.  Former Bishop Nathaniel Garang, local leaders and Government Officials from Bor and Juba were also present.  This meeting was even broadcast on South Sudan TV in Juba.

The Government and County authorities told the Sudanese that they are thinking of closing shops and other things at the IDP Camp so that Sudanese will go back to their rural villages.  Deng Alier, who sent me this information, said as he passed MCH on his way to this meeting at Zion Church, it was so sad for him to see MCH sitting idle without humans.  PCC has talked with the Staff about re-opening MCH as soon as Michael returns from Juba with the used vehicle to replace our old one that broke down.

This past Monday, a record of 150 Sudanese were seen at the Clinic that MCH is running at Pastor Stephen's Mission Garden of Christ.  MCH is also running a Clinic in the IDP Camp across the Nile River from Bor.

The Minister of Health for the Jonglei State, recently told the MCH Staff that Sudanese have said that the Memorial Christian Hospital is the best Hospital in the entire Jonglei State.  Please pray and ask God to provide added strength to our Staff as they treat and minister to the physical and spiritual needs of Sudanese who come daily to these 2 clinics.  Please pray that God will continue to supply PCC with the funds needed to continue bringing Hope and Healing to Sudanese as the Memorial Christian Hospital will soon be reopened.  Many Sudanese have been seen will be needing surgery which we cannot do at the clinics (another reason we need to reopen the hospital).  Pray that lasting peace will soon return to South Sudan.
