A word from Curt: Pray!
Reports are that South Sudanese continue to cross the border into Uganda. They are primarily Dinka and Nuer from Malakal and Bentui towns. Please pray for them.
The birth of a borehole Nyumazi 1 Camp Adjumani, Uganda
A Picture is worth a thousand words.
And a story to go along with it is worth ten thousand more.
I wish you could have been with us recently to see water pouring forth from this new borehole.
And the best part was watching the faces of the residents as they saw their new well in action.
If there’s anything I’ve learned about what we call “Up Country” (northern Uganda and South Sudan) it’s the importance and priority of having clean water.
We’ve visited refugee camps that have little or no clean water. This means dipping water from muddy and unclean sources as well as carrying heavy water cans for several kilometres.
Our Chadan team is working with Baptist Global Resource to help camps get water. Learn more at www.gobgr.org
And that’s not even the best part. Local pastors are going into these same camps and sharing the Gospel.
And the Gospel is the Good News that Jesus, who called himself “The Living Water” wants to give them new life.
Africans call it “Being Born Again” and that’s a correct term (John 3:3) for when a person turns away from their sin and turns completely to Jesus.
You’re invited to help with clean water (boreholes) and Living Water (praying for our pastors or a camp.)
You can be part of the birth of more boreholes and seeing folks having the “New Birth” Jesus talked about.
We’d love to hear from you. Better yet, we’d like to link you up.
Like our friend Coy you may be able to come up and join hands.
But you can join in right from where you are.
You can pray.
You can give.
You can send others.
