I want to share several shots from a Saturday filled with waiting.
South Sudanese call white people, “Kawaja.”
This is in contrast the East African moniker of “Mzungu.”
I can easily tell if those calling at me are Ugandan or Sudanese.
“If you’re not an optimist, you have no business in South Sudan.”

These three young men, Francis, Michael, and Peter are all residents of Ulua 2 Refugee Camp. Thanks to Windle Trust, a NGO helping with secondary education, these young men will be in school next term.
They are examples of the spiritual and intellectual strength of the South Sudanese people.
Pray for them.
