Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Our newest little missionary, Adelaide Ramirez, was initiated into Didinga community culture today by a traditional “coming out” ceremony. Women wearing the festive hide skirts, multitudes of beads, and bells on their ankles escorted her and her mother in and out of the hut door four times as is the custom for a female. They sprinkled grain and water for prosperity and spit water for blessing on mother’s feet. The procession was led by a warrior with a spear for protection which was wielded fiercely against unseen foes.

Our four day visit in the Didinga hills of Sudan concluded with a powerful time of prayer around the napire, the family’s outside fire, where we had eaten our evening meal under the stars and bright half moon. Seven years of missionary battle has established a beachhead of faith in this animistic society. The battle for the light of the Glorious Gospel of Jesus against the deep darkness of Satan’s schemes which yields drunkenness, hatred, fear, promiscuity, and hiding from the communities retribution.
