South Sudan

April 28, 2015 § Leave a comment

I don’t know how to start this blog post.

I don’t like asking for money.

I don’t like not being in control.

*

This summer, I am going on a mission trip to South Sudan.

I have never been on a mission trip before.

I have never raised money for a mission trip, either.

*

South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world.

About a year and a half ago, it was ravaged by civil war.

Before that, there were more wars.

There is still fighting in northern parts of South Sudan.

*

I am going to a safe, rural town in the southern part of South Sudan.

I am going with Seed Effect,

a Christian nonprofit that gives microfinance loans to entrepreneurs.

Many of these entrepreneurs are women.

They sell mostly agricultural goods.

A number of them have HIV.

*

To go to South Sudan, I have to raise $4,500.

To go to South Sudan, I am putting together a prayer team.

*

If you’re interested…

would you pray for me?

would you pray for the other volunteers?

would you pray for the South Sudanese?

would you donate to my trip?

For more information, to donate or pray, visit my fundraising website.
