|You Have Given Us Back Our History|
Along with the first complete Bible in Moru, we also had the privilege of delivering the first copies of "The Doctor Comes To Lui."
This long out-of-print book on the beginnings of the church in Moruland had first been published in 1938. However, with all the disruption and destruction of the war, no copies of this inspiring book remained in Southern Sudan. I sent out requests to several friends worldwide to hunt out a copy of this rare book. By God’s grace, Christopher Williams tracked down a copy of this precious book in a second hand book shop in England.
We were delighted to receive the book and especially to see that the 27 photographs and 2 maps in the book were still in good condition. With some revisions and additions, including a Preface from Bishop Bullen Dolli, a Foreword from myself (along with the original Introduction from Bishop Llewellyn Gwynne – the first CMS missionary to Sudan) and with a new cover design, Frontline Fellowship printed the new edition of "The Doctor Comes To Lui – a story of beginnings in the Sudan."
"Frontline Fellowship is now part of the Moru community. You are part of us. Even though you are white we love you as one of our own. You have given us back our history!"
