Back to South Sudan

On January 25th, 2014, we head back to Yei, South Sudan.  His House of Hope Hospital for Women & Children is scheduled to open again on January 27 after closing on December 20, 2013 due to increasing fighting and instability in South Sudan.  

We have been in East Africa since January 4th, first attending a conference in Ethiopia, then getting visas and doing other business in Kampala, Uganda.  For the past week, we have been only 100 miles south of Yei, in Arua, Uganda.  We have completed additional security training, and sought the guidance of leaders under whom we serve in South Sudan.  In the midst of this, we feel that Jesus is leading us to return to South Sudan at this time.  Several factors had to come together-- including receiving our visas to return, finishing our security training, arranging a flight, and paying for it.  We also felt it would be a real bonus if a cease-fire was signed prior to re-entering the country.  God could have shut the door at any of these points along the way had He not wanted us to go back at this time.

Not only did all these logistical points come together this past week, but a cease-fire agreement was signed on January 23rd.  Our trust, however, is not in politics or agreements, but in the Lord who is sovereign over the kingdoms of men.  And we thank Him for leading us-- closer to Him... and back to South Sudan.
