No Way Home
Mary Ayul Nyikang, 45, fled conflict in her South Sudan community with her six children. Now they live in a camp of makeshift shelters under UN protection.
Malakal town used to have a population of more than 100,000; now all have fled. Mary and her relatives live in several shelters. "My house (in Malakal) is empty. All my property was looted, even the iron sheeting on the roof and the timber. I even had a video; that was looted. The food that I had saved for the children was stolen,” says Mary.
"Six people sleep here with me and the others sleep in another 'house.’ I have to remove all the cooking things and put them outside so we have enough room,” she says.
Joshua 22:7 “…When Joshua sent them home, he blessed them.”
Pray today that those who have been driven from their homes may find a place to call “home.”
