FOCUSING ON THE UNREACHED PEOPLES OF SOUTH SUDAN
"Reaching the unreached"
Mathew 9 :38
Mark and Julias along with their families are Kenya missionaries that have been working in South Sudan for many years, in some of the most remote areas, among many unreached people groups.
At present they are working amongst the Toposa people using Disciple Making Movements as a tool to engage this people group and many others including the Nyangatom, Jie, Kachipo, people in the Nuba Mountains and Murle.
These are our two main focus areas.
Discipleship through DMM
Empowering self-help groups
Our goal is to reach the unreached peoples in South Sudan, and beyond, with the good news of Jesus Christ and see His glory be made known.
We initially set out in 2018 with the goal of "100 churches in 5 years".
To date, through DMM as a tool, we have seen over 70 fellowships planted 7,000 people come to the Lord and over 3,000 people baptized.
Currently, we are working among the unreached people groups 'UPGS' in Eastern Equatorial region of South Sudan, but are looking to expand across the whole of Sudan and even into its neighbouring countries soon.
If you would like to support our efforts, donate towards our cause or come out and visit us please get in touch. The harvest is great but the labours are few.
God bless you.
