Dear Msn Isaac Kim,
Thank you for your calling last night with great concern about our leaders in South Sudan which is in the midst of civil war. I am so sorry that I cannot say to our brothers and sisters in South Sudan, “Merry Christmas” because of the current terrible situation.
Dr. Oyor Moses who is a Malakal UBF chapter director is in Juba, the capital of South Sudan now. He went there in order to go to Rwanda for his university workshop. But now his schedule was cancelled and also was not able to go back to Malakal because there is no airplane. Forces loyal to a rebel leader have reportedly captured Malakal, the capital of the oil rich Upper Nile state last night.Some said heavy fighting erupted in the morning hours of Tuesday and by evening the rebels took full control of Malakal town. Despite of the situation, our leaders in Malakal center held Christmas worship service with twenty sheep last Sunday. Shepherd Peter Angelo delivered a Christmas message instead of Dr. Oyor Moses who is bound in Juba.
Shepherd Padiet Deng and all our brothers and sisters in Juba are safe now. I pray that God may protect all our brothers and sisters as well as all innocent civilians from the violence. I pray that love and peace of our King Jesus come upon the nation.
