Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Phil poses with Paul and Mark, who are two of our “sponsored” students studying in Uganda, as they get a jumpstart on their travel back to school with an AIM AIR pilot who spent the last two nights in our home.

Testimony about their travel home from school via our home: After visiting us pre-Christmas, Paul and Mark set out for their home on local “taxi” filled with Kenyan business people going home to their families. Suddenly a gunmen accompanied by three other men stood in front of the taxi with gun cocked ready to shoot. Paul and Mark were full of courage and stepped from the taxi telling the man not to shoot. He came towards them and held the gun at them. However, they were not intimidated. They instructed him that he could shoot them and they would die, but that he would then be found and killed also. So they suggested he not shoot, as they moved closer to him. He got defensive and drew a line in the sand, telling them not to cross that line, or they would be dead. Instead of acquiesing, they moved toward him, and he and his associates fled into the bush. There are many accounts of ambushes on the roads–robberies on the road, looting of vehicles, injuries and deaths…but few report no damage. Praise God for their safety!
