We landed on a dirt runway in Yei, and headed to the EPC Compound.
So the first full day we were here was Sunday. We took a propeller plane from Entebbe Uganda to Yei Sudan, and arrived Saturday afternoon. The roads here are incredibly challenging, but a wonderful reminder of God’s grace and provision, despite the hardships. Sunday morning was our first Sudanese church service, and it was incredible. The dancing, singing, worshipping, encouragement, and overall atmosphere was one of worship and praise to the Lord. What an encouragement! Jason Holleman spoke out of 2 John, teaching the Gospel of Jesus to the congregation. The church has a thatch roof, and there are tree trunks that are the wooden beams holding the roof up. Little kids were playing and singing outside. The Word was preached and the Gospel went forth. It was a great church service.
After church, we went and had a joyous lunch where we talked, told stories, and praised God for what He is doing at the EPC in Sudan. Then I walked to some of the huts in the compound, and saw some little kids playing soccer, and I jumped at the chance to get to know them and share the love of God with them.
I met a little girl there named Anne Grace, who is around 2 years old. She is absolutely adorable!
Here’s a close up of Grace
The sun rises and sun sets are amazing here. It is the rainy season in Sudan right now, so there is a ton of rain in the morning and at night, but humid and hot during the day. It makes for some amazing sunsets at night.
Thanks for reading. God bless you!
