CHRISTIANS ARE THE FASTERS GROWING POPULATIONS IN THE SUDAN TODAY
DR. MACHAR AND HIS WIFE ANGELINA TENY
SINGING AT THE CHURCH
The Vice President of the government of Southern Sudan Dr. Riek Machar today attends the Christ Mass Celebrations in Bentiu, Unity State. More than five thousand people packed the church hall as they marked the day Jesus Chris was born.
“This is a day Jesus Chris was born and this is the day we all should remember.” Dr. Machar told the cheering congregations.
Sudan TV yesterday said, Christians in the Sudan are only 17%. This statistic does not only ignore the right populations, but it’s completely unscientific and ill researched. It should not be consider. The Christian are the fasters growing populations in the Sudan today. If they are sincere, they will find that, more than 70% are Christian in this country.
Today alone, we have seen a Muslim man converting to Christianity. A man who was a Muslim for 44 years has accepted Jesus Christ in his hearts at last in front of thousand of congregations.
Dr. Machar encourages all Christian denominations to keep records of converts and frequently file church congregations to report at the end of the year.
God believers do not exaggerate that is how those who do always ignore the correct data got the chance to manipulate the real statics. However, at the same time, Christian populations in the Sudan must reflect the right statistics and it must be you who should take that initiative to tell the world the right population.
