Lost boy of South Sudan to bishop: religious leader returns to refugee camps

From Australia-

He was about 11 years old when bloody war arrived on his doorstep.

Militias murdered his father and burnt down their village.

Fleeing, he was separated from his mother and siblings and then spent the next 15 days walking across the border without any food.

"I survived but a lot of people died because of hunger, a lot of people died because of wild animals," he said.

Having converted to Christianity at a young age, he spent his years in refugee camps focussing on his religion before eventually being consecrated as a bishop.
