The missionaries were an eclectic group from various walks of life who chose to travel to Sudan at their own peril.
Let My People Go
If the Sudanese government had discovered them, they would have been killed. As a former missionary to Africa, Canadian author and radio personality Cal Bombay takes you on a journey that fluctuates between heartbreaking and humorous with dangerous situations and tales such as when Mr. Bombay, admittedly overweight, pedals an old bike through miles of sand, up and down hills. Your pulse will race as the missionaries cross treacherous rivers, fly in unsafe planes, and sit through dangerous meetings with militant northern Sudan Arab slave traders to buy the slaves' freedom and return them to their homes in the south.
The first person accounts from slaves are heart-wrenching. This book educated me and gave me a passion for the Sudanese people. This is the story of the odyssey of the author into Sudan, the modern slave state in north Africa, to redeem slaves stolen from their homes in southern Sudan in the unrelenting process of Islamization and Arabization of the Black Christian South.

Bombay describes in simple terms the rogue regime of Ahmed el Beshir, who had violently overthrown the previous government in Government forces, armed with helicopter gunships, send janjaweed jihadists into the south to capture and behead the men, while enslaving women and children. The only resistance comes from southern Sudan's splintered and sometimes corrupt Sudan People's Liberation Army.
He also discusses the process of redemption in which he was involved, whereby slaves were purchased from their Arab masters and set free in their Dinka villages. The latter, however, are the constant targets of genocidal raids and slave-taking. As we see today in Darfur, the process of Islamization and Arabization continues apace. Would you go one on one with me on this "slavery" issue?
This book was recommended to me by a therapist. When I read it, I was amazed at all of the slavery that was going on in Sudan. It was a moving book, and very detailed on the hard ships being forced onto fellow human beings just because of their religion. It makes me want to get involved!
