I will be leading a team of 10 people back to South Sudan next month for the purpose of evangelism and discipleship training. This trip will be very similar to the previous trip I took back in September, where we will be working alongside EPC and their members with the work. Our goal and heart is not to do the work alone, but come alongside the church and under their leadership to do this together.
Last year we saw boatloads of immediate fruit. Somewhere around 120 people gave their lives to Christ, and of those about 100 joined the church and were baptized in the following weeks. How encouraging is that?! The Lord is doing a tremendous work through the EPC in Yei, and praise God that He allows us to be a part of it!
Our TVC team will split into 2 groups of 5, and each group will be joined by about 20 EPC members. Then, each team will go out into nearby villages together in Yei, South Sudan to share about Christ with all that will hear. The best part about this trip to me is how it’s set up – before our team gets there, EPC will have 4 or 5 of their leaders go out into their communities to talk with their neighbors about what we will be doing, what we are about, and will ask them if they want us to come speak. Then, if they say yes, they set up an appointment for our team to come share. I can’t stress to you the beauty of this! We are not “brainwashing” anyone, or forcing anyone to believe anything – we are sharing Christ with those whose hearts have been softened to want to hear!
I would really appreciate a lot of your prayers for this trip. Here’s a list of a few things you can pray for:
- For me:
- servant’s heart
- boldness to share
- peace for Courtney while I am away
- For the team:
- favor from the Lord
I’m looking for 10 people who will commit to activelypraying for me and for my team. Is this you? Also, if you want to help support the team financially, please let me know as this is definitely a need.
And now for the sizzle factor, here are some pictures from my last trip in Sept.
