Rebuilding South Sudan
As South Sudan is now an Independent state, since last month, it is essential that our Mission teams assist the Christians in the reconstruction of their war-devastated country on a sound Biblical base. Since 1995, we have delivered over 300,000 Bibles and Christian books in 23 languages, trained 70 chaplains, 50 medics, 280 pastors and 780 teachers in Sudan. During the same time period we helped in establishing over 100 primary schools, one high school and 2 Bible Colleges in Sudan. In seeking to minister to spirit, mind and body, we also helped build and stock 2 clinics and convinced Samaritans Purse to restore the hospital in Lui . All of these ministries need to be re-supplied.
Repairs, Replacements and Re-supply
It is unlikely that many of the Hymn books, Prayer books, Bibles and other materials have survived the past years of war, rain and frequent use. Many of the school textbooks are quite tattered and many of the Hymn books, Prayer books, Chaplains Hand Books and Discipleship Manuals are frayed and in pieces. It is also unlikely that many of the Gospel Messengers, audio cassette recorders, Gospel Proclaimers and other audio visual equipment are still in working order. Many need to be repaired, or replaced.
Resources for Pastors, Chaplains and Teachers
I have also been busy revising, improving and developing new materials to assist the pastors, teachers, chaplains and evangelists. Our teams need to deliver the new Practical Discipleshipbook, Discipleship Training Manual, Chaplains Hand Book, Chaplains Prayer Book, the new editions of Slavery, Terrorism and Islam - The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, and Faith Under Fire in Sudanbooks. The new edition of Biblical Principles for Africa is also much needed as South Sudan seeks to rebuild on a solid foundation.

We are most grateful for your ongoing prayers and support.
May God continue to be your joy and strength.
Yours for the fulfillment of the Great Commission
