Berti in Sudan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Sheikh Ishac led 300 families to a refugee camp. They had walked two days and one night through the desert to escape fighting in their home region. One man reported, "We had just left our mosque when the attack started. We just ran. We don't know what happened to those left behind."

What are their lives like?
This group represents one portion of the Berti tribe. They herd livestock and raise crops. They have not joined the violence around them. But intertribal wars have encroached upon their region, and they are now among the thousands of displaced refugees in Sudan.

One young mother with five children ran from the attack with only a little food and her cooking pot. She can't find her husband. One of her children died in the refugee camp. She has no shelter from the mosquitoes at night or the sun by day.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Prince of Peace will bring peace and salvation to the Berti tribe.
* Pray that justice and mercy will rain down on the internally displaced peoples of Sudan.
* Pray that Christian relief workers will show the peace and love of Christ in such a way that peoples will rally to the Sovereign King of Kings.
