Country Profile: Sudan

Sudan is a country of ethnic diversity (over 500 ethnic groups). Due to this variety in people groups, there are around 130 distinct languages. It has been estimated that 65% of Sudan population is Muslim. Around 25% of the remaining society is Christian.

The main populace of Muslim people is concentrated in the north. The Christians and animists as a whole, live in the south part of Sudan or in the Nuba mountain range. Sudan has been a state of civil war between Muslims and non-Muslims for fourteen years now.

Please pray for the Christians that are being caught between the cross-fire of the civil war that is raging in their land. Pray that the will stand strong against the persecution and that they will be able to shine as lights for the Lord.
