PEACE TRAINING ‘WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE’

Church leaders from South Sudan who attended peacebuilding training in Scotland over the past two weeks have said that it will ‘make a diff erence’ to the war-torn country.

The Rev Santino Odong Othol Kwanyang and the Rev Joseph Maker Gordon Manyiel were among the group invited by the Church of Scotland to take part in two weeks of training.

They were also hosted by various churches during the visit, attending and speaking at services, spoke at a World Mission event in Edinburgh, went on retreat to the Bield in Perthshire and even had time for some tourism and shopping.

The group also got first-hand experience of the best of Scottish weather, in the snow that has hit the country in recent weeks – not that they were complaining.
