Prayers requested for those suffering in South Sudan

The Sudanese Support Team of the Presbytery of Des Moines is asking for prayers for South Sudan.  Conflict and violence are again ravaging South Sudan, resulting in a growing humanitarian crisis. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced from their homes and are in danger of dying from starvation or disease. With relatives back in their homeland, our presbytery's Sudanese congregation, First Arabic Presbyterian, is deeply affected by this conflict.

Please pray for peace and hope for the people of South Sudan, and for those in our local Sudanese congregation as well.

All the Presbytery of Des Moines folks who attended Synod School 2016 stopped long enough to pose for this picture. Synod School was July 24-29, in Storm Lake, Iowa at Buena Vista University. Our Synod of Lakes and Prairies Synod School is the only remaining Synod School in the Presbyterian Church, (U.S.A.) and enrollment for 2016 set an all-time record at 630.  To read more, you may go here
