One More People Group in Sudan is Being Reached!
Sudan is a nation we often hear about, and the news is almost never positive. Stories of war, drought, and human cruelty have made it to our newspapers for so long that we easily become desensitized to it. No matter how degenerate mankind can be, God brings beauty from ashes.
Sudan has 162 ethnic groups, 131 of which are closed off to the gospel, according to Joshua Project. Some of these people groups do not have a single Christian believer who can share the gospel with their families and communities. We know from Revelation 7:9-10 that there will be some from every nation worshipping before the throne. Our all-powerful God is making that happen as you read this!
In recent months, He has made unprecedented inroads into one of these 131 Sudanese people groups. This unreached tribe has gone from no Christian Believers to 20. These new Christian Believers are helping to translate a set of Bible stories into their local language, according to Unfolding Word. This ministry is dedicated to teaching sound Bible translation guidelines and making sure there is a set of Bible stories in the local language. The process is long, but worth the effort. Christian Believers can share Bible stories with others who speak their language, setting in motion a movement to Christ with eternal blessings!
