South Sudan

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?
