James Mandela

Hello! My name is James, but I go by “Mandela.” I am in Senior 3 this year. My best subject in school is biology, but I struggle with math. I have some chores around campus that include weeding and digging ditches in the rainy season. I also help at church by teaching Sunday school classes and sharing the word of God in morning chapel devotions. In my free time I enjoy playing soccer and telling stories to the younger kids. One of my closest friends I spend time with is Asiki.

Lately I have been learning about challenges that come up in life and how to handle them. My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11. Will you please be in prayer for South Sudan, my family, my education and my spiritual walk with God? Please pray for me to do well in life.
