SIMON LOTABO NAAKI
Marital Status: Married
Location: Toposa, South Sudan
In April 2021, SHARE commissioned Simon along with 14 other missionaries to begin outreach to the Toposa people of South Sudan. Simon is originally from Toposa but had been living in Turkana, Kenya. He has served as an evangelist, disciple-maker, and translator.
UPDATES FROM THE FIELD:
In March, Simon shared the Gospel in 3 Toposa villages – Natirae, Nakamita, and Morua-rengan/Nakwatal. The people have been positive and welcoming. 3 believers are being trained how to start their own Lighthouses (discipleship groups). Some of the major challenges in the area are lack of a medical facility, need for education for both adults and children, and water scarcity.
