Due to safety concerns a decision was made to not travel to the Diocese of Lui this year.  Our partners from the Diocese of Blackmore Vale in the United Kingdom and the Diocese of Lund in Sweden have decided to postpone traveling to South Sudan also.  We hope to consider a trip in 2015 and hope to send a small group if conditions change.Safety is a top priority and we will keep people informed when the situation changes. Until then continue to pray for peace for all the people in South Sudan…See More

Sad news from Mothers’ Union in Lui

This morning I was informed by Lillian Clement that a dear friend Joana had died in her sleep.  Joana apparently did not show any signs of illness and died during the night alone in her family’s compound.  Her family found her dead in her tukel early in the morning. I first met Joana in 2011 on my 2nd trip to Lui, South Sudan and again in 2013 when I taught reading and language classes to the Mothers’ Union. Joana had very little formal education but worked hard in class and greeted me with a…See More

Signs of Hope and Peace

It is almost impossible to follow the conflict raging in South Sudan when one reads that there is a cease fire signed in January although fighting continues.  The town of Bentiu, capital of Unity State has changed hands from the South Sudanese military to rebels groups several times and now is being held by the government. Recently the South Sudanese forces have taken over the rebel base of Nasir where it was rumored that Riek Machar was holding out. The town of Bentiu is the capital of Unity…See More

Thanks sister Evelyn Smith for your comment, God bless you. You are welcome to Lui and may Him grade you safe journey to Lui. Lui is good, every where is green and bush, every one is cultivating. I can also see you have very good shadow behind you, thank you for that. Yesterday we were in meeting, about Lui Hospital Agricultural Farm, with Canon Baringwa, Pastor Noel, Hospital Administrator & Accountant, and Dr.Legesse Kennenni to see how we can raise funds for supporting the Hospital. Dr Legesse is an Agricultural Doctor, and he has agreed to us professional in this project with a Tractor left by Samaritan Purse to the Hospital.
