Toposa Outreach Update – December 2023
In December the Spirit of God was moving in Toposaland! The Team revisited 42 villages and 18 new villages with 118 people accepting Christ and 57 believers baptized! In villages where there is not water readily available for baptism, the Team has adapted another method of baptism, as depicted in one of the photos below. Once people have accepted Christ, one of the Team’s main focus is to disciple Champions so that they can establish more Lighthouses to grow more disciples in these new villages. There are now 79 Champions discipling 755 disciples in 54 villages. They distributed 35 Audio Bibles and 24 DMM signage bookmarks. Champions are actively using them to share their faith story and God’s story with others in their villages.
The Team is grateful for the prayer support from believers near and far. Continue to pray for the Team to remain bold and firm in their mission; to persevere in spite of hardships. Pray for safety as they travel as the roads are very muddy when it rains. Pray for the Champions, that they will continue to grow in their walk with God and remain bold in sharing their faith stories with others. Pray that the ongoing internal conflict between the Toposa and other tribes in South Sudan will cease.
