TESTIMONY:

Mr. Olivier, our man of peace in Alingongo village, had stopped going to church when our team stayed at his home during a church planting survey.

“There was a Pentecostal Bishop who came to the church where I was fellowshipping. He taught in a three day seminar. He taught many things for two days and on the third day he concluded by requesting every participant to write on a piece of paper the total amount of money she/he had and bring the paper to him. He told people that he was going back to Bunia with those papers, where they would pray and bless them. After prayers they will burn those papers then mix the ashes with oil. He will later come back with the mixture so that these participants can apply on their bodies and become rich or richer than before,” Olivier narrated.

From that day Mr. Olivier left the church, decided to stay at his home. But when our people went for survey, he stayed with them for two days at his home and shared the Gospel together. Finally he changed his mind and repented from his sins. Now he is preparing the ground for the coming evangelism mission and church planting in that area.

Church Planting Mission: Imvepi

Church Planting Mission: Imvepi

Lenexa Baptist Church alongside the African team partnered to obey the Great Commission in Imvepi refugee settlement between July 3-7.

This was a unique team as it had seven teenagers along with six dads.

The willingness of these dads to introduce their kids to sharing their faith at an early stage in their lives challenged and encouraged many hosting churches and leaders.

Another thing that stood out in this mission was the fact that many of the men who professed Jesus as Lord were soldiers or ex-soldiers who served In Opposition. They made these professions openly and without shame.

The second church was planted in the block where the refugees were just two weeks old. They were desperate, no proper structures and no shade. But they were more than willing to bear the direct sun heat to hear the Word of Hope although their hearts were hardened. The missionaries sowed seeds with hope that God will water them to until they bear much fruit.

During discipleship sessions, participants were attentive and asked several questions, a sign that they were hungry and willing to learn more.

Two churches were planted to the praise and glory of Jesus Christ.

We thank God that:

  • 652 people were reached
  • 45 people accepted Christ as their Lord
  • Many people attended the discipleship sessions.

Testimony:

“I am a soldier from one of the South Sudanese Rebels groups. I have been doing many bad things when I was in the bush. My life is full of evil things. I am just tired of being in this kind of life. I don’t want to continue in the same life.

I want you to pray for me so that God can change my life and that I may live a good life that pleases God,”

he confessed. 

Challenges:

  • Many refugees in this camp suffer from sicknesses
  • Many services offered to other refugees have not yet reached these new arrivals
  • Many people in this camp are religious, salivation by works and not by grace.
  • As there are more refugees going to be brought in to the new large allocated area for the refugee, more work is required to be done in Imvepi.

Thank you,
Charles Maring

Field Report: South Sudan

These are pictures of homes displaced and people shafted to the road side! The government tried this morning to dig drainage for the water and yet people still remain sleeping on the road side. It is so horrible!

We have emptied our house and some things on the church to my uncle’s home and we still came back to sleep for fear that thieves may find advantage to steal our remaining items like speakers and benches.

We still need your prayers!

-Pastor David Lual
