Media Award for Bishop Daniel's Interview with the BBC

A moving interview with Bishop Daniel Deng Abot, the Bishop of Duk in South Sudan, has won a major broadcasting award in London. The interview was carried out by Mike Wooldridge for the BBC World Service Heart and Soul series. Bishop Daniel (a mission partner and member of St Bart’s along with his family) was one of southern Sudan’s “Lost Boys”. After 15 years in refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya, he resettled in Australia with his wife Rachel and served as a priest in Queensland. But, after South Sudan gained independence, he felt called to return to his native homeland where he serves as bishop. Read the article here, and also listen to the interview.
