South Sudan--Gunmen Attack VillageSource: VOM ContactsJob 5:10-12He gives rain on the earth,And sends waters on the fields.He sets on high those who are lowly,And those who mourn are lifted to safety.He frustrates the devices of the crafty,So that their hands cannot carry out their plans.Gunmen shot and killed a number of people in a South Sudan village last week, exposing VOM workers to potential danger. On Jan. 17, a VOM worker reported that gunmen had killed a man named Godana, who had gone to fetch water for his family. "Godana was the watchman at the compound for more than 20 years," the worker said. "I knew him well." The town is small, and residents walk between shops and the market, making them vulnerable to attack. "I'm very concerned about our staff and their families," the worker said. Pray for the safety of our staff in the region and for other Christians during this dangerous period.
