ICC Note: Two South Sudanese pastors facing criminal charges in Sudan are not afraid to die and to suffer for Christ.  Pastors Yat Michael and David Yein expressed in interviews that they were simply carrying out their calling as pastors and preaching the Word of God. The pastors, who were charged with spying, inciting organized groups, and offending Islamic beliefs, are currently being held in jail in Khartoum.  Please pray for these courageous pastors whose obedience to God remains in the face of tense government persecution and the prospect of death at the hands of the Sudanese government.

6/5/15 South Sudan (CP) – Two South Sudanese pastors are facing possible execution after being imprisoned for two months by authorities who arrested them for various alleged offenses, including “offending Islamic beliefs” and “inciting organized groups.”

Pastors Yat Michael and David Yein are being held in a jail in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, where a number of Catholic and Protestant churches have been destroyed recently and told CBN via telephone that they are prepared for whatever punishment lies ahead for preaching the Gospel in the region.

Michael says he hasn’t spoken with his family for two months and he was accused of spying when he was arrested in January.

“When they interviewed me, they asked me why I’m preaching here. I say, ‘I am preaching because this is my call. I am a pastor. I must speak the Word of God,” Michael said to CBN.

“They say, ‘No, you don’t need to preach the Word of God with a hidden agenda.’ I said, ‘No, I don’t have any hidden agenda.’ They accused me [of being] a spy here.”
