Toposa Outreach Update – February 2023
Majority of the Toposa Team returned to Toposaland in late January and early February. There is still some unrest
near the border between Kenya and South Sudan which at times makes travel difficult for the Team. Please continue
to pray for the Team’s safety in Toposaland.
The Team’s relationship with the indigenous people is growing; they hope to reach many more people with the Gospel this year. In February, the Team shared the Gospel in 25 different villages, with 24 people giving their lives to Christ. No one was baptized as there is hardly any water in the riverbeds. The Team is praying that Christians will become bold and share their faith with others in their respective villages.
The Team’s priority this year is to train the 50 Champions who are committed to sharing their faith with others. This will empower them to lead Lighthouses. The Team is also set to do DMM Trainings between March 27th and 30th. Currently, insecurity while travelling to the villages and cultural festivals are making regular training and follow-up in reached villages difficult. This month the Team has handed out 26 Audio Bibles and 10 DMM Bookmarks.
Continue to pray with the Team that the consumption of alcohol, use of illicit drugs and chewing tobacco will dimmish as people come to know Christ. The Team is grateful to SHARE and donors for the provision of tools necessary to accelerate the sharing of the message of the Gospel in Toposaland.
