Christians Under Attack Carry a Pulpit Up a Mountain

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?
