The Republic of South Sudan is the world’s newest country, formed when it declared independence from Sudan in 2011. South Sudan is rich in natural resources, but decades of fighting have left the country with limited industry and little infrastructure.
This on going civil war has resulted in a country torn apart by famine, starvation, and orphaned children that fill the market places. Many children are sent to Juba, the capital, by their parents due to the lack of food in their villages.
We have rented a house in Juba, starting with five boys under our care. God has blessed us by providing a great team of brothers and sisters in South Sudan that are heading up the work.
It seems that fighting can break out anytime and anywhere but nonetheless, our team is committed to these kids and their well being.
We feel so blessed that after years of prayer, God has opened the doors for us to be His hands and feet in a small way to these kids, as our heart for street kids moves beyond the borders of Latin America.
Please pray for protection of our team, wisdom in the midst of turmoil, and that the light of Jesus would penetrate the hearts of the children we are helping.
