Hi there! I’m thankful to God for my wife, Susan, and our children, Yvonne, Janet, Sidney and Fidel who have been patient with me as I stay away from them serving in South Sudan. I have a huge responsibility overseeing the 110+ children here in Yei and 50+ children in Terekeka. The children lovingly refer to me as their “Baba,” because for many of them, I’m the only father figure in their life.

Having been entrusted with overseeing the whole ministry, both as the Campus Administrator in Yei and more recently as the National Director overseeing all of our campuses, including our new Primary School in Uganda, it’s been a busy yet humbling season for me. Throughout it all, God continues to be in control and helps lead me in my role. Will you please pray for good health for us here, continued protection over us, and the wisdom to know how to communicate with different people who, because of the volatile situation, are traumatized and especially sensitive?
