Happy New Year!

As we celebrate the New Year, we thank God for YOU our partners and supporters. In February it will be 20 years since Suzy was first called to South Sudan!! We are so grateful for the way you have prayed and supported us in advancing the work of In Deed and Truth Ministries in Tonj. Here are some of the ways your partnership has impacted the Kingdom in 2018:

The new medical ward was completed in record time and opened by the Ministry of Health. Before we were cramming beds together in a small room and laying mattresses on the verandas. The new ward is spacious, organized and clean. We can now focus on the calling and minister to the patients more effectively.

Our team is also growing. We have expanded our pastoral team and now have 14 pastors serving under In Deed and Truth. They pastor our church plants, serve as assistant pastors to Sabet, work as chaplains in the clinic and medical outreaches, serve in CHE, teach Simply the Story and show the Jesus film in the villages. We are looking to provide sponsorships for them costing just $50 a month. Go to our website to sign up and see their profiles.

  1. Sabet and Suzy,
    I got the chills reading over the numbers, each one a person, for how many lives you have touched in many different ways. I’m in awe at how large The Lord has made your hearts, and how He continues to strengthen you to love the people of Sudan. May He continue to bless you and provide for you according to your every need, and expand your reach to care and save those about you. Much love!
