So in just over a week we will see Southern Sudan become an independant state.
Southern Sudan will become one of the poorest countries with incredibly low human development indicators.
Over the next week please be praying for a peaceful independence chang-over and for a good leadership to be in place. This has the potential to be incredibly violent, but let us pray that it will be as peaceful as possible.
Also, please keep in mind what will now be Northern Sudan. There is increasing tension in the leadership there and with the split the tension could increase greatly.
