Easter!

It was hard for our family not to be in South Sudan for Easter. But what a joy to see our national pastors and church leaders step up and lead the church though this special time of celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection.

Good Friday they marched to Freedom Square in the center of town and Pastor Muordek, one of the sponsor pastors and an elder of CC Tonj, shared the Gospel with the community and had a great response with several people receiving Christ as Savior.

We’re praising the Lord for record numbers of 1,500 people coming out for the CC Tonj Easter Sunday Service held on the IDAT compound.

Baptism!

After the Easter service everyone walked down to the river and witnessed the baptism of 42 people! What a special day to get baptized and show the world we are a NEW creation in Christ Jesus only made possible by His death and the shedding of His blood on the cross for our sin. A testimony of our faith in the Resurrection and promise of Eternal Life.

Do you remember little Mattiang, the brave boy who had his leg amputated last year? We are so excited, he also decided to be baptized!

“In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.”
– Colossians 2:11-12

Going Home!

Sabet, Agum and Jed arrived back in Tonj safely. Suzy is still dealing with insurance issues and planning to travel on May 29th with Molly Dittmann.

This month our clinic has hit record number of inpatients already and we are not even in the height of the rainy season. Our 21-bed ward was overflowing this week with 24 patients! Please pray for our team as we deal with so many critically ill patients.

Praise God, we are ecstatic to announce the solar power fundraiser  has been fully funded! This means more children will receive the critical care they need.

Pray for Molly as she joins our team and serves the Macleod family, helping to homeschool their children so they can focus more on the medical clinic.
