In December 2013 S. Sudan descended into tribal and civil war once again. After unprecedented international pressure, warring parties signed a "Permanent Ceasefire"/Peace Agreement on August 26-27, 2015. On October 1, the S. Sudanese government reaffirmed its commitment to this agreement before the UN General Assembly. Reconciliation efforts are moving forward throughout the nation, and they are desperately needed. Once again, the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit working through Christians is the best hope for this most fragile nation on the globe. S. Sudanese are beyond weary, but are a resilient people. The great news of new life in Christ is what many need. The Christian community is greatly encouraged by global ministry partners and friends. Read "The Christian Case for Not Giving Up on the World's Most Fragile State" from Christianity Today.
Consider investing in ministry to S. Sudanese. We build the trip around your gifting and in-country needs. We have access to the UN Jebel Refugee Camp in Juba. We can use physicians and other medical and dental personnel in Torit. We can put teachers, evangelists, those with the gift of service, and many others to work. Visit our S. Sudan page for more information and an application. If God is leading you, contact us right away, since you will need adequate time to prepare. The overall cost is approximately $4,000-4,500, depending upon how many immunizations you need, and your point of departure. Please contact us at 423-822-1091 to discuss this opportunity. Here is a flyer for the trip.

We invite all medical and dental personnel interested in short-term missions to visit our Medical Missions website listing. You'll find the kinds of specialties that we can use, places we serve, and photos of past medical missions. We are passionate about trying to meet the medical and dental needs of those we serve. Team members have worked in clinics and hospitals, in tents, and under a tree. Consider our S. Sudan trip scheduled for April, 2015. These fit within a two-week vacation period. We welcome medical support staff as well.
