CMSI recently received a troubling update about an incident in Yei town, South Sudan, in which church leaders were attacked and injured. The attack took place around midnight on 25th July. In all, five households were targeted, with eight people badly injured and their money and possessions stolen.
This is the latest in a series of brutal attacks on church leaders in Yei and surrounding areas. The Bishop of Yei, Right Reverend Hilary Luate Adeba, is certain that the Church has become a specific target for violence. As Bishop Hilary indicates, this represents a significant challenge for the Church’s presence and ministry in the midst of the conflict.
