Strengthening the Peacemakers:
South Sudan and Diaspora

We urgently invite pastors and women leaders in the North American Sudanese Diaspora (from Sudan as well as South Sudan) to join with American friends to practice means of moving from trauma towards reconciliation and the goad of a just peace in South Sudan.

The careful listening and outspoken participation of leaders from all denominations and language groups in South Sudan is vital.  Discussion will be frank and confidential.
