Arrested in Sudan

Our office has got word that Rev. Peter Hammond, the Director of Frontline Fellowship, and Bishop Bullen Dolli, Bishop of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, have been arrested and detained in Yei Province in Southern Sudan by the Public Security Office.

Peter and the Bishop are being held on trumped-up charges of treason and insurrection.

They were dragged out of a church Biblical Worldview Seminar at which they were teaching last Saturday. After 3 hours of interrogation by the Military Intelligence of the Sudan Peoples Liberation Army (SPLA) their passports were confiscated. Ministry opportunities have been missed due to this.

Tribal animosities have exacerbated the situation.

At present Peter and the Bishop are under house arrest and being detained against their wills. The SPLA would not let them leave on two flights that were organised.

Please help these Christian leaders by:

Praying for their release.
