Dear Friends,

its about two days now that Lui , Lanyi was on heavy gun shooting....

people ran to the bush for safety , Bishop Stephen is safe.

yesterday evening, again there was heavy gun shooting in Lui and shops were looted ,the same to Lanyi and the biggest looting was done in Jambo...

this morning I called Bishop, he told me that Lui as calm last night but they do not know yet how many were left dead...but as per now, all the Nuer Soldiers left Lui , Lanyi and Jambo.heading towards Juba the capital.

at the moment heavy fighting is taking placing at Tapari bridge the boarder between western Equatoria and central in Rokon....

this is for your updates...and thanks for your prayers.

Lillian.

Dear Lillian you are all in our hearts and prayers! Keep us updated please

Very bad and sad news! We pray for Lui and the Moropeople, you are all in our thoughts, please greet bishop it when you talk to him! It is difficult to see this happening in Lui as a few weeks ago was such a quiet place with confidence. What can we do for you?

My heart aches for the Peace that was so promising to return to a place so near and dear or my heart. May God hold safe all those we know and love, and may a solution emerge that will restore peace in the land once again.

Lillian, thank you for the news although my heart is breaking from it.  Please keep us posted when you can, and above all, be safe.  I pray many times a day for all of you.  Now that I have been with you all there, in some ways it feels like an attack on my extended family.  We are grateful for any news you can provide, even if it is sad.

Dear Lillian,

All of you are in my daily prayers and have been. Now I am praying more for the safety of everyone in Lui and peace in South Sudan. That somehow in this season of Epiphany, the gifts of the kings will become peace for South Sudan.

Thank you for the news, but this breaks my heart.  I was praying Lui would escape the violence.  :-(

We are glad you and Stephen are safe, but so sad that the violence has come to Lui.  You are in our prayers constantly.

Lillian, thank you for posting this. I was so hoping the violence would not come to Lui Diocese. Thank God Bishop Stephen is safe. Please let us know more about the people of Lui, Lanyi, and Mideh and their homes, shops, and lands when you have more information.

Oh, Lillian my heart is full as I read your letter. Please know that I am praying for all my friends in Lui and for South Sudan. Please keep us updated because I hunger for news. Be safe and God bless you and the people of Lui.
