Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Our Sudan AIM team of 20 individuals has taken a precautionary leave from Sudan as the elections are in process. Some traveled to Nairobi by air and some of us by road to Kampala.

We road travelers came within a whisker of being held in Sudan. After days of debating when was the best time for us to leave due to the rumors of “border closing” and all the official reports that the borders will not close we finally made the prayerful decision to leave two days earlier on the 7th instead of the 9th. Just as we 13 AIM’ers drove into the border post of Seritania, Sudan, at 1 PM on the 7th, we noticed a man at the roadside standing with his cell phone high above his head to pick up the last bar of the distant Ikotos cell tower. A few minutes later the same man came to where we were clearing immigrations to say that very call was from his superiors in Juba to close the border to all SS registered vehicles which would include the two cars and motorcycle in our caravan. However since he personally knew us from previous crossings, we would be allowed to proceed.

Talk about incredible timing of God’s provision! Praise to JESUS! Whew! Am I glad HE is the leader of this team!
