Two Presbyterian Ministers detained in South Sudan

Two members of the Presbyterian Church in South Sudan, Reverend Idris Joshua Idris Nalos and Pastor Trainee David Gayin, were arrested from their homes by security forces on 19 May. They are being detained incommunicado, without access to a lawyer or their family, and are at risk of torture or other forms of ill-treatment.  Please keep them in your prayers.  Amnesty International is working for their release or at the very least for them to be informed of the charges against them and their families to be informed of their whereabouts.  Trinity Presbytery Sudan Ministry has also been advocating for them with the U.S. State Department in Washington, DC.  The Trinity Presbytery Sudan Ministry has been working in South Sudan to do medical mission trips, seminary education for pastors, and advocacy for the people of the region to the U.S. government.  Click this link to see the full news release from the Presbyterian Church USA website with instructions on how you can help advocate for the release of these ministers.
