Gap Analysis

With the help of our friends John Wanyonyi (a Kenyan Baptist missionary serving in Toposaland) and our own Simon Lotabo, the Missionary Team will begin “Gap Analysis” in Katodori Payam, Lotiyen and Mogos Payam in Kapoeta East as soon as they settle in in South Sudan.

Sammy Murimi participated in quarterly TNJ (Toposa, Nyan’atom, Jiye) consortium update Zoom meeting on May 21st. The Turkana-Toposa Missionary Team will serve in collaboration with the existing missionaries affiliated with TNJ, including our new friends Mark Keter of Seeking the Lost Mission, Rawlings Kibukosia of Big Life and John Wanyonyi.


Prayer Requests:

  • Healing for Missionary Simon Lotabo’s child
  • Spiritual breakthrough in the unreached villages to be targeted
  • Peaceful co-existence between the Toposa and her neighboring tribes
  • Moderate rains: Recent heavy rains, coupled with poor roads, have caused havoc, rendering impassible terrain, with some vehicles submerging and carried away by flash flooding.
  • Provision of the $21,050 balance towards the Toposa Outreach Initiative Annual Balance
  • Cessation of the persecution of the missionaries affiliated with TNJ
