Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Mathew 28:19-20).
Friends in Christ, the Lutheran Church of South Sudan is grateful to fulfill her commission under the most difficult circumstances. These pictures are from the church without walls in the refugees camps. We are part of millions of refugees forced to flee homes by the brutal and deadly conflict and violence in South Sudan. We left everything behind, including love ones, but God never left us. Many members of our church are orphans and widows, the most vulnerable victims of their time. The LCSS is truly privileged to proclaim the Gospel hope and God's unbroken promises amidst violence and brokenness.
Yes, the LCSS continues to "Make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" under difficult circumstances (Mathew 28:19) and trusts on God's assurance of continues presence to the end of the ages (Mathew 28:20).
I am back to the US for several months and will be traveling across the country preaching and presenting on the refugees crisis in South Sudan. If your congregation would like to hear more about the refugees situation, please let me know.
