The Container Arrived!
Yeah!!! Thank you for praying, yes, the container finally arrived after many delays. It’s here safely on our compound bringing medical equipment, much needed food, bibles and most importantly the solar equipment for the new clinic and ward. Amazingly nothing was missing. We praise God for His hand in delivering that container to us.
Please pray for Offgrid Tech’s solar team planning a trip in late October to install this equipment. If you would like to be part of that team and have some knowledge of solar power, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for 2-3 people who can fund their trip, and spare 2-4 weeks to help with this installation, from late October to mid-November. We can put you in touch with the team leader so you can ask questions and to see if it will be a good fit. We’ll put you in touch with the team leader so you can ask questions and see if this trip will be a good fit for both parties.
Isaiah 55:10-11 says, “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
This year we have been blessed to receive many volunteers; making July our busiest month yet! Many of our new helpers are young adults, here for 6 months to serve the Lord and the people of South Sudan. It’s been so awesome for Hannah, Agum and Jed to have fellowship and ministry together with these amazing people. Molly is 20, from Utah, and helping the Macleods with homeschool as well as serving in the clinic. Paul is 18, from California and is helping with our media needs and medical clinic outreaches. Alleytia, is 26 and grew up in Africa as an MK. She’s a nurse from Australia and is serving on the ward. Pray for Danielle, she’s 17 and arrives in September to serve in the clinic.
Then we had the additional pleasure of welcoming back some very special people. Board member, Dr. Dave Pierce, Troy and Laura Willis from CA (Troy was on Suzy’s first trip to Tonj in 1999) and the McAlister Family from Eastgate Church in FL.
With so many volunteers we were able to host a workshop for Troy to share the gospel with the police dept, visit a CHE village, do a medical outreach, take food to the lepers’ colony, host a pastors conference and unload the container!!
They all were amazing, blessed us tremendously and left their mark on South Sudan. Pray for Molly, Paul, Alleytia and Danielle who are staying until December.
New CHE Village!
We are so excited to be launching CHE in three new villages. The CHE Committee from Kunyuk initiated a seed project to bless their community. They voluntarily cleared the way for a local well to be accessible for collecting water again.
Their example to serve selflessly is one that will hopefully inspire other villages to do the same. We thank God for touching their hearts and putting this desire in them to implement change and start making a better life for their families and community. Working together to transform lives, we love that!! That is CHE!! Please pray for all three villages, Kunyuk, Maloney and Ariam Duar.
