Sudanese Boy "Crucified"

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
Damare, a small Sudanese boy was taken as a slave and forced to tend camels after radical Muslims attacked his village. One day Damare, who had been raised in a Christian home, snuck away from his master to attend a church service. When he returned, his Muslim master was waiting for him and accused of committing a deadly act, "meeting with infidels." The master then dragged Damare into a field where he nailed his feet and knees into a large board while the boy cried out in agony. Damare was miraculously rescued and has told The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) that just as Jesus was nailed and forgave, he forgives also. Damare has now received some assistance from workers with VOM. His wounds are still open and additional medical attention; as well as some rehabilitation is still needed. Damare is not alone in the persecution he has endured. The Muslim government of Khartoum in the North has declared a jihad, or holy war, against the mostly Christian South. Omar Hassan al-Turabi, an Islamic leader, has stated that anyone who opposes Islam Òhas no future.Ó Since 1985, approximately two million have perished due to the genocide. Families in the South are terrorized-fathers killed, mothers raped, and children sold into slavery. Yet in the midst of these atrocities, the Christians in Sudan remain strong, worshipping their Saviour and leading others to Him. Thankfully, in recent months the onslaughts have begun to subside and peace talks are on the table.
