CSI Slave Redemption Article (Jan 2008)
--

One typical Sunday morning in Sudan, the signs of dawn were visible on the eastern horizon. The rooster�s crowing ceased as the savannah slowly brightened with the sun�s warm rays. On this early morning, the end of the rainy season, the sounds of drums could be heard in the distance. Many of the CSI workers were still resting in their tents when Pastor Santino Bol arrived. This tall member of the Dinka tribe was wearing a white shirt underneath his brightly embroidered Talar.

In his sermon he said God sent CSI to deliver our children, sisters and mothers out of slavery. My church continues to pray that CSI can continue its work in this forsaken region. Not far from here live Muslim Arabs who kill our children, rob, and take our women from us. Their goal is to make us into Islamic converts. Four local churches were burnt down; yet churches continue to grow. More and more people accept Jesus as their Savior and many enslaved church members have returned.

We have friends in the midst of us, he said, turning towards us. We have known these brothers for years; they were here when everything was destroyed, when our women and children were taken away, and our churches were burnt down. It is today that we want to thank God for their help. Our friends here were responsible for raising awareness amongst other Christians abroad about the many Christian brothers and sisters living here in the Sudan. We are all connected just like Paul stated in his letter to the Corinthians; it doesn�t matter if we�re Jews or slaves, Africans or Europeans, Jesus came and died for us all. Here in the Sudan, we�re people of dark skin colour and still we belong to Christ�s body, He�s our Lord and Savior.
