Sending on Mission
The Refuge helps send South Sudanese refugees to South Sudan to share God’s love and grace.
Ganaro arrived this morning in South Sudan for three weeks of ministry. His sending church is Clarkston International Bible Church in Clarkston, GA. I (Scott) have known Ganaro since he was 10 years old and have been mentoring him over the past few months. The Refuge helped support Ganaro’s ministry this past summer in Clarkston (among the refugee community). Every time Ganaro and I have gotten together at our weekly meetings, God has provided an opportunity for Ganaro and / or me to share our faith. I have been grateful for these opportunities. I am amazed at Ganaro’s love for Jesus, his maturity, and his boldness in sharing his faith.
Ganaro will be joining a team led by another refugee from South Sudan, named Abraham, who also lives in the Clarkston area. Abraham is serving with a Clarkston based ministry called Proskuneo. Abraham arrived in South Sudan in early August and has been there preaching, leading conferences, and sharing about Jesus. Ganaro arrived this morning and will be involved in ministering to the youth in his war-torn country. The civil war in South Sudan continues to have pockets of fighting, including in the areas that Abraham and Ganaro will be ministering. Your prayers are appreciated.
The Refuge significantly supported this trip because we firmly believe in and are engaged in equipping and sending former refugees on mission. We can do so because of your continued generous prayers and support of The Refuge.
We are excited about what God will do through Abraham and Ganaro over the next three weeks. Please pray for much life transformation to take place in South Sudan during this time. Please pray with me Ephesians 3:16 for Ganaro and Abraham, “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”
Thank you for your ongoing love, prayer and support. God willing, Ganaro will be joining me at the end of this year on a trip back to the orphanage for South Sudanese refugees in northern Uganda. The Refuge sponsors this orphanage.
One more exciting thing – prior to departing, I challenged the South Sudanese church in America to support this trip. And they did! Here is a text from Abraham explaining such.
The mission of The Refuge is for families to experience abundant life in a growing relationship with Jesus. This is why we do what we do. We trust you are experiencing the goodness of God’s Presence.
Please stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.
