The SEED – June 2022
My name is Rebecca Eiton. I am from Nakimak Village, Sopel Zone. God has saved me. Before I gave my life to Christ, I was bad person and didn’t listen to my parents. Whenever they would tell me to go somewhere, I always refused. But then I started attending Sunday School. I heard the Scripture that states, “Children obey your parents.” That Scripture touched and blessed me.

On Thursday, June 9th, the SHARE Team, along with our partner ICM’s (International Cooperating Ministries) rep. – Andy Scott – from Virginia, USA – traveled to Kangipusia Village, Kachoda Zone for the official opening and dedication of the first Next-Gen Sending Center. The community was very excited and grateful to witness the very first permanent building in their village. It was quite the celebration! We give God all the glory for making it happen! The Center will now be used for educating children and training them to be disciple-makers.

A total of 43 people will participate in this year’s two Short-Term Outreach and Relief Mission (STORM) trips in July. This will mark the first teams since 2019, when COVID-19 halted STORM trips. The teams will minister in a total of 6 remote villages, including two where they will spend the night. The first team is from Covenant Church of Naples, Florida. The second is a combined team of participants from Galena Bible Church of Galena, Illionis; Turning Point Community Church of Lubbock, Texas; and The Bridge Community Church of Ruston, Louisiana. A few members of the first team will also travel to South Sudan from Turkanaland to meet, pray with, encourage, and deliver Audio Bibles to the 15 SHARE missionaries there. We request prayers for safety and successful STORMs.

There is no political organization among the Toposa people of South Sudan.
However, respect is paid to elders, sultans/chiefs, and wise men. Most decisions about the community are
made in meetings attended only by the men. Such meetings are usually held in dark hours before dawn.
