Help Christian Children This Christmas
2,000 years ago a Child fled with His parents. It still happens today.
Earlier this year twelve-year-old "Amos" and his parents were making their way on foot to Uganda. They wanted to escape the drought, famine and killing fields of their homeland, South Sudan. Somehow, Amos lost his parents, but continued through the bush alone. He came across another group of refugees, who agreed to let
Amos travel with them. Before long the group walked into an ambush. As the attackers opened fire, the refugees scattered. When the shooting stopped, Amos found himself on his own again. He hid in the bush for two days until he saw another group passing, who let him join them. By this time, Amos was so weak with hunger, he could hardly walk. After a while, two of the men took turns to carry Amos on their backs until they reached Uganda.
Amos is now safe in Camp Rhino, fed mainly by the Church of Uganda, with funding from Barnabas. He is one of 90,000 South Sudanese Christians in that camp, a large proportion of them women and children.
