The government of Sudan often drops bombs on the Nuba Mountain region of their country. “When we were there, 40 artillery shells landed close enough for us to hear them,” said a VOM worker who visited the area recently to encourage the Christians.

Sometimes the bombs hit churches. In one church that was destroyed, the explosion damaged the pulpit. The congregation fled to the mountains. They took the pulpit with them to remind them that Christ’s church can never be destroyed.

The video below tells more about the VOM workers’ trip to Sudan and about the Christians there. One of the Sudanese Christians in the video carries a gun “because there is always a threat of attack,” the VOM worker said.

As you watch the video, look for answers to the following questions.

  1. What kind of animal is the child milking at the first of the video?
  2. How long did it take the people to hike up the mountains?
  3. The Sudanese houses seen in the video are called “tukels.” What shape are their roofs?
  4. Where do the Christians stay at night for safety?

A previous post told about Esther, a girl who was injured when her bus was bombed by radical Muslims.

Update
Today, more than 15 years after her bus was bombed, Esther is a teacher at a nursing college and a youth leader at her church. Radical Muslims still blow up buses in the Philippines. Esther remembers the bombing any time she travels on a bus. She is startled when she hears noises, like the sound of a mango falling on a roof. When she smells smoke, it reminds her of the bus exploding.

Recently Esther’s parents were traveling in their vehicle through a town in Mindanao when they heard a loud noise. A bomb had exploded, and it killed a person on a motorcycle in front of them, and another motorcyclist behind them. Many others were injured, but by God’s grace, Esther’s parents were spared.

It’s not easy living in a place where bombs can explode at any time. Esther trusts God and remembers His mercy toward her. She believes that the Lord will help her find peace.
