AUGUST MISSIONS FEATURED PROJECT – SOUTH SUDAN
Our project for August is South Sudan. This country continues to experience war and violence – many people have left and gone to Uganda to a refugee camp. The orphans we are supporting have been relocated to Uganda though the church buildings and schools are still being looked after in Yei and Ligitolo. There is much suffering and starvation in South Sudan and we need to remain faithful in our support of both the orphans and refugees in Uganda and the people remaining in South Sudan. We have Boo and Phyllis Hankins coming on Sunday, August 11th to speak and they will update us on what is happening with the orphans in Uganda. We will take up a collection at the end of service. Please be in prayer for the people of South Sudan who continue to suffer.
