Today was the day that the results were to be announced about South Sudan’s referendum for independence from North Sudan. The results were announced last Monday, however, a whole week ahead of schedule!

In case you haven’t already heard the news, the people of South Sudan voted almost unanimously for independence! On February 7th, 2011, the results were released and the name of the planet’s newest nation was announced:

The Republic of South Sudan.

Michele has lots more to say about this event, reporting from her house in the bush outside of Yei.

We pray for this new nation, and we eagerly anticipate the fullness of the redemption Jesus has purchased for her.
