South Sudan is back in the news—this time for a deadly famine. Approximately 100,000 people in the central part of the country are facing starvation, with 4.9 million more in danger. I’ve been to South Sudan more than a dozen times, including when it celebrated its independence in 2011. I’ve seen people so desperate for food that they had to eat bugs, bark, and leaves to survive. This is the first time in nearly six years that a famine has been officially declared in the world. Samaritan's Purse is not only providing food, but also teaching farmers how to grow better drought-resistant crops. We’re also drilling wells for safe drinking water. As the nation is in the midst of political unrest and fighting, will you join me in praying for these people who have suffered so much?
