Thanks you so much dear IGAD leaders particularly Dr. Abiy, for your leadership that make the South Sudan issue the first priority. You have the similar situation to be dealing with between you and Eritrea but you choose to put much time on South Sudan matter because you are also the chair of IGAD countries. For that leadership of yours I am thankful and grateful about it. Though South Sudan could have people behind it who could solve the problem yet some of them their time is not yet arrive as everything work according to God arrangement. I can see these two countries are working closely to each other and that is a good thing leading to future reference which have been announced by the prophets concerning this one who will make it one unit. On his lead that is fast approaching. It got into my attention that this country according to God ‘s message is second to my land of birth which all in turn are both second all together to where my ancestor came. It is not only that I will have tremendous support from you but you will gain spiritual insight from me also as my own will.
