The Provincial Episcopal Church of Sudan
The Provincial Episcopal Church of Sudan is now actually made up of two countries. Sudan, which is the Arab North, and South Sudan, which is the new Sovereign nation of mainly Christian and Animist traditions. There are 31 Episcopal Dioceses in the ECS (Episcopal Church of Sudan), with only 5 Dioceses in North Sudan and the remaining 26 Dioceses in South Sudan. The Provincial headquarters are in Juba, the Capitol of South Sudan which is also the Juba Diocese.
The Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska is a companion diocese to the South Sudan Episcopal Diocese of Twic East located in Jonglei State. Twic East diocese was a part of the Bor diocese until two years ago. At that time the Bor diocese was split in two, with the Twic East diocese becoming the north half of the former Bor diocese. Our friend in Christ, Ezekiel Diing Malangdit, serves as the Bishop of Twic East. South Sudan has a population of approximately 9 million, with one half of the population being of the Episcopal faith. Twic East has a total population of about 1.1 million and 590,000 are Christian.
