Thank you for giving!

Because of your generosity, we’ll be able to come alongside our partners financially in a big way in 2020. You can also continue to support our Global Partners by praying for them in the coming year, so we created a calendar that you can pick up at church this Sunday. You can also help our partners by serving on a mission trip. You can learn more about the trips we're offering at our Mission Trip Fair coming up.

If you didn't get a change to give, don't worry. You can still make a contribution to the Global Outreach offering through the button below.

Funds for Bible Literacy Initiative (BLI)

Due to the war in South Sudan, up to 84% of the population in Warrap State above age 15 years can neither read nor write. The women are mostly hit by this situation because of the additional cultural beliefs and practices that prevents young girls access to education. The fact that adults cannot read their Bibles impede their spiritual growth and therefore the Church remains infant. SMARD started the Bible Literacy Program in 5 centers to provide an opportunity for illiterate Church Members who desire to read their Bibles in their local language.  Other members of the community who may not be Christians but would like to learn how to read and write their language are welcome to also have the opportunity and some have become Christians during their classes. It costs $1,350 to sponsor a class of 50 students for 6 months and a Bible cost $20 each student totaling to $2,350. This cover cost of Bibles, stipend for Literacy Teachers and materials. 250 Christians are direct beneficiaries of this Project.

Sunday School Teacher Training

Children are the future generation of the church so we need to teach them the ways of the Lord. At present we lack trained Sunday school teachers in most of our churches and children ministry is not taken seriously because of lack of vision. We want to develop 30 teachers to gain knowledge and skills in teaching the Sunday school classes. Teaching materials will be provided to enable them to teach the children professionally.

Adult Literacy

The rate of illiteracy in South Sudan is about 80% of the population, due to a number of factors. The South Sudanese were resistant to learn Arabic education which was considered as a symbol of Islamization, parents prefer their boys to look after their herds of animals, while girls are left for marriage purposes, as such most people are still illiterate. ALARM in Lietnhom has started this program of literacy three years back. Today we have the third level and the total number of the students is 47. In this proposal we are targeting 60 participants. This will enable them to read English and Dinka languages, help their women in calculations in their businesses & help them to read their Bibles.

$7,500
Basic Agricultural Training

The soil of South Sudan is very fertile, and we have numerous sources of water including rainfall, rivers and boreholes that can help them in irrigating their farms throughout the year. However three quarters of the population are living in starvation and poverty due to laziness that was caused by dependence on relief for long period of war and the insecurity that discourages people from going to their farms. Now through the training that we are carrying out in Lietnhom you are able to find greens from personal self-sufficiency and the market. We want to continue training in these areas so that people are able to produce more products. This training is targeting 180 to enable them to obtain knowledge and skills in organic farming and to provide them with seeds, agricultural tools, and good storage methods to earn a living for their families and to transform their lives and the communities surrounding them.

It gives a sense of growth in terms of relating with each other as they respond to issues. 40 leaders have been trained and 20 in training to graduate at the end of 2020. Government officials have shared that some of the calm that exists in the settlements where the leaders we have trained and are training is because of the impact of the training content that we offer. This is how impactful the funds you give are affecting many communities in the settlements.

Ongoing Education Projects

This is one of the most important projects by PEACE. We believe that every child has a right to education. Through education, they will learn how to read and write they will be able to read the bible and tell others. PEACE school is a great example and the children from our school are different from those in other schools in the settlements and around the settlements. Their level of knowledge is much higher and their character is different. Many organizations are closing down their schools because UNHCR has run out of funds and can no longer fund them but PEACE will not be affected because we did not depend on the United Nation for funding.

They testified that since the project was started the families eat better food, they are able to dress their children better and are able to support with paying fees for their children. The standards of living are better. There has been a recommendation that the women need at least 6 months of consistent training.

Less Under Our Tree
More for the World

A phrase you may hear at Fellowship is “Less under our tree, more for the world”; this has become our church’s petitioning prayer to financially support our global partners and our church’s desire to shape our Christmas giving.

Those eight words form the perspective we so desperately need during the holidays. Last year, because of your generosity, people found life in Christ, students attended seminary and, through the gospel, churches brought real hope to their communities. Your gifts made a difference in the world!

Your sacrificial giving helps support our partners who are Word Centered and Spirit Dependent. During Global Christmas, will you prayerfully consider joining God’s global vision and work around the world by contributing financially? Will you give so that the good news of Christmas—Christ to and for the world—can be shared with those in desperate need? To demonstrate one of our church’s core values, Not About Ourselves, will you add our global partners to your Christmas list? Help us share the joy and message of Christmas with the world!
