Ten years after gaining independence, South Sudan cannot shake its chronic violence. Last month, the United Nations published a report describing ongoing atrocities, stating “vast swathes of South Sudan have witnessed a massive escalation in violence perpetrated by organized tribal militias exceeding the violent conflict of December 2013.”

Threats against Christians have only grown worse since 2013. “‘Oppressed’ is not even the correct word” to describe their reality, Mission Cry’s Jason Woolford says.

“People are martyred for their faith; they’re being maimed physically, and they can’t even read about the very God they’re under fire for.”

Now, hope is on its way to South Sudan in the form of 50,000 Bibles and Christian books.

Mission Cry collects donated resources like these and ships them to believers around the world. A church in Kentucky and two former Marines partnered with Mission Cry to send this latest order on its way.
