After 20 years in South Sudan the first member of Suzy’s family came to visit her in Tonj, her Mama!! It was so special and definitely something to be celebrated. The Governor of Tonj, Honorable Matthew Mathiang Magordit personally came to the airstrip to welcome her!!
He also took her on a tour of the IDAT Medical Clinic.
On her first day we drove to Bobi, one of our remote CHE villages, and did a medical outreach and Mama Suzy helped with the pharmacy!
Mama Suzy said, “I have never visited anywhere in the world and been made to feel so welcome by everyone, not just my family but everyone , even in the villages. I wasn’t expecting that and I can’t wait to come back!”
New CHE Outreach!
It was so exciting to take our visitors, Scott and Kris Davies from Ridgeview Church in Texas, to our new CHE village of Ariam Duar, about 1 ½ hours drive from Tonj.
Scott helped the pastoral team with sharing the gospel, while Kris assisted Mama Suzy with pharmacy. This was our first medical outreach there and we saw 623 patients, which was a record for us!
The highlight was having so many receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Now with a church plant in Ariamduar we have a place to plug in new believers. Please pray for Ps. James Akec and email us if you can sponsor him for $50 a month as he is new to our pastoral team and disciples the new believers.
IDAT 2019 Soccer Tournament!
This has been an amazing month of outreaches and so exciting to see so much fruit coming forth.
October saw the kick-off to the annual IDAT soccer tournament, which draws huge crowds to every game as 10 teams compete for the IDAT cup.
Twice a week the IDAT team share spiritual lessons on the radio and at every match CC Tonj sends pastors among the crowd to share the gospel. The first two Sundays following the tournament we had 91 and 57 new people in church as a result of that sharing.
Isaiah 26:4 says, “Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.
