Toposa Outreach Update – July 2023
In July, the Toposa Outreach Initiative (TOI) Team revisited 31 villages, encouraging the believers there and reached 24 new villages. They screened The Jesus Film in most of the villages. The outreached resulted in 45 people accepting Christ! The Team continues to revisit each of the reached villages on a weekly basis to encourage and instruct believers in their walk with God. The believers are constantly being encouraged to listen to their Audio Bibles, use the DMM Signage Bookmark to share God’s story and their faith story with others, and to join a Lighthouse. Plans are in process for training more Champions to lead the increasing number of Lighthouses needed. A total of 19 Audio Bibles, 6 hard-copy Bibles, and 16 bookmarks were distributed to new believers in July.
This is the rainy season, making travel treacherous. Many of the villagers are out in their fields planting crops, which makes regular meetings challenging.
The TOI team requests prayers for safety as they travel, that they remain bold in their mission of sharing the Gospel, and for protection from opposition. Insecurity between the Toposa and another tribe called Buya is also making travel unsafe on some of the Kapoeta-Lomeyan area roads.
The Team is grateful for the time spent in Lodwar in June/July to attend “Sustaining A Healthy Church” teaching/training summit. They are praying that soon they will hold a similar summit in South Sudan for existing and potential church leaders there.
