UNITED IN PURPOSE & MISSION

BY FAITH, WE WORK TO SEE:

The host and refugee churches united in purpose and mission.

Disciples growing and multiplying among the refugee and host communities.

The pain of war being brought to the cross of Christ, and people finding freedom.

The entire refugee population of more than 135,000 in Mabaan county coming to Christ.

Communities where He is least known

The Jumjum

The Jumjum, a community from Sudan’s western Blue Nile state, have made their home in the refugee camps in Doro, South Sudan. They fled the fighting of 2011, following the independence of South Sudan. A number of missionaries have reached out to the Jumjum. When fighting erupted in Doro on Christmas Day 2016, the missionaries were evacuated for a time. The Jumjum women continued to meet with one another to share the Word. May this fire of the gospel spread throughout the majority Muslim tribe!

 

The Nuba

Much like the Jumjum, the Nuba community borders the former Upper Nile state. A number have crossed into South Sudan fleeing the fighting and searching for safety. They are also from a majority Muslim area. They are a minority in the camps, but had a small church near the airstrip. Fighting on Christmas Day 2016 meant they had to abandon it. Pray for Nuba believers to remain strong, and that the Lord would minister to them in their hardships.
