Sudan: Call for prayer, help

Before a Jan. 9 referendum on southern Sudan's autonomy, Martin Junge, Lutheran World Federation general secretary, issued a call for Lutherans worldwide to pray for Sudan's people and churches.

"Many people are fearful," Junge said, adding that tens of thousands of southern Sudanese migrated from the north to the south in fear that a 2005 peace agreement might fail.

Junge asked Lutherans to pray and help south Sudanese who live abroad in Canada, Egypt, the U.S. and other countries but are entitled to cast absentee ballots.
