Our Flame team have had an extraordinary trip with many becoming Christians and seeing many healed both inside and out.
The hopelessness of the refugees was very apparent; mostly because humanly speaking it is difficult to see how these dear ones will be able to return home in the near future. We trust we brought hope to them through faith and love of Jesus.
The South Sudanese are hungry for Jesus and desperate because their living conditions are so appalling, especially with the flooding that occurred on our first day there. When they sing praises to Jesus their joy raises up but deep in their innermost beings there does seem to be inevitably despair and darkness.
We ministered to youth refugees in the Morobi Camp and the Belameling Camp and we praise God that seventy or so became Christians during our trip. We saw a deep healing in many of them as they got in touch with their emotions. Many found the capacity to forgive deep hurts such as disappointment at the loss of schooling and anger at the government for causing their plight. We pray the little we have offered that the Lord will multiply.
One of the highlights for the refugees was the sport and creativity that our young team put on for them to learn new skills and sports.
We preached in seven churches and around 1600 people heard the teaching on forgiveness; hundreds received some measure of healing.
In both camps 45 Pastors were taught and prayed for. Our goal was for them to understand the teaching and that they would support the young people we have taught as those youth teach and pray with other youth. Many of the Pastors received healing whilst receiving the teaching.
The team returned home rejoicing thanking God for all that He has done.
Please do now pray for the team returning home and for the Flame team going on to Juba, South Sudan to minister to 50 Chaplains in the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army.
Thank the Lord who is our refuge and our strength! Psalm 42:1
