You may not have any desire to come to South Sudan and its borderlands.
But that doesn’t mean you cannot pray.
You can pray for these churches and pastors from your prayer closet in America.
But be warned: these strategic leaders and churches may capture your heart and you’ll find yourself on an airplane bound for Africa.
You were warned.
How your church can pray for a South Sudanese Church
1. Kakuma 1 Baptist Church
Kakuma is a large refugee camp set in northwest Kenya’s desert region. Pastor Ding Lual leads this Nuer tribe congregation. Many of the Baptist Convention’s present leaders came from this camp and church.
Pastor Thomas Tut
2. Kakuma 4 Baptist Church
This church plant, led by Pastor Thomas Tut, is also a Nuer congregation. The church family at Kakuma 4 have seen the horrors of civil war.
3. Pastor Mark Mwagmi leads a Madi people group congregation in South Sudan’s Eastern Equatoria State.
4. Ulua II Refugee Camp Adjumani, Uganda
This refugee camp, comprised of 3000 Dinka Bor, is ripe for planting a Baptist church. Two boreholes, drilled through Baptist Global Response, have opened doors of opportunity to share the Gospel and start a church.
5. Umoja Baptist Church Nairobi, Kenya
This church in Kenya’s capital is comprised of many refugees and has a missions outlook. Matthew Dohl and his wife Sara are from South Sudan but currently live in Nairobi.
6. Openzi Baptist Church Adjumani, Uganda
This Madi Tribe church in Adjumani, Uganda is taking seriously Jesus’ mandate to reach Jerusalem and Judea. Pastor Joseph Anyovi and his wife Jessica lead this growing church.
7. Nyumazi 1 Baptist Church Uganda
Pastor David Dok leads this Baptist church set among over 20,000 refugees. His work hasn’t been easy and there are many ways a church could partner with David and his small (for now) church.
Boroli Camp Church Leaders
8. Boroli Baptist Church Adjumani Refugee Camp
This Ugandan camp is made up of refugees speaking over twenty languages. Pastors Mario and Augustin have planted a growing Baptist church in this camp of 7000.
9. Doro Camp South Sudan
This camp is strategically placed in South Sudan’s Upper Nile State. Baptist church planter Joshua Abrahim (Photo) is working hard with refugees from the region which includes Sudan Arabic tribes.
10. Faith Baptist Nimule, South Sudan
Located on South Sudan’s border with Uganda, Nimule is a strategic town for Gospel seed sowing. Faith Baptist, pastored by Pastor Tolbert, is a Madi congregation mixed with refugees from the Murle group and more.
11. Upper Nile State, South Sudan
Dinka pastor John Monchoyl is bravely planting and growing churches in this unstable region. A praying church would be a great encouragement to John and the others working with him.
