The Nationals of south Sudan are excited and rejoicing as they look forward to finally having the opportunity for self governance. As of Friday afternoon the unofficial results from the referendum that came to an end on Saturday January 15th, indicates that 98.6% of the south Sudanese have voted for separation.

As we watch the potential split of the nation between Northern and Southern Sudan, I ask that you join me in praying for the outcome of this monumental occasion.
This war torn country has seen extensive turmoil over the years and there has been much tension between these two regions even after the civil war. It is my prayer that this voting process will be peaceful and that the Lord’s hand will govern the outcome. As many in the south seek succession, I am also committed to praying for the development of government and infrastructure that must take place if the vote is in favor of the split.
I encourage you to take a few moments to learn more about the impact of this occasion from the articles below.
