South Sudan – a new nation that came into being in 2013 – has been wracked by violence in recent months, sparking a mass migration of refugees across the borders of neighboring countries.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to neighboring Gambella, Ethiopia, where the Rt. Rev.

Between the two of them they are ministering to both the physical and spiritual needs of the refugees.
