Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush… Isaiah 18:1
My wife and I had the privilege of visiting the land of Cush, modern day Sudan, in 2006 for a medical missions trip. We were there for a few days but we still feel the impact and the weight it had on us.
We saw it all: end of the twenty-year civil war, intense heat, isolation, poisonous snakes and spiders, no medical facilities, no running water, few maintained roads, unexploded bombs in villages, and civil war casualties in every family we met.
And yet, we also saw a strong faith among the Believers, as passionate and on fire as you read about in the Book of Acts! Rejoice that, despite their horrendous physical circumstances, they can maintain a joyous and overcoming life. They are on the front lines as Islam marches through that region.
Pray, just pray.
