Archbishop Daniel briefed the team on current developments in the Sudan, the concern of the Episcopal Church to remain one church in both Northern and Southern Sudan, his concern that the Christian faith should continue to flourish in Northern Sudan, and the current risks of destabilisation of the South.  He explained that he had been called at immediate notice to lead talks in the centre of the country to forestall current disturbances and so would be sending his personal epsicopal representatives in his place.  A representative of the Archbishop of Kenya, who is a patron of Anglican International Development which is supporting Manna Microfinance, will also be attending the launch, Bishop Ole Sabit.
