The Western North Carolina Conference has sent a team over to the Sudan. I have some friends whose family is over there along with members of our conference staff. Sudan has closed off all airspace and roads. Right now team is held up in their hotel room. The UM Bishop of Uganda is attempting to get permission to have a private plan fly in to get the team. So far no luck. They will try again Saturday.
Please keep them in your prayers and the people of the Sudan.
