In a recent interview, WMP’s national coordinator in South Sudan eloquently expressed the opportunity and need for a new supply of Scripture booklets. He reports that in the past two years, doors have been opened for evangelism outreach without restriction and churches have seized the opportunity to press forward with the gospel. South Sudan is home to 64 tribes, 27 of which have not been reached with the gospel. He states that “Without you, we wouldn’t know what we could do.” The larger areas of Darfur, Khartoum, and the Nuba Mountains are open to the gospel, accentuating the need for more material.
Booklets are urgently needed in two of the major languages of South Sudan, Dinka and Nuer. The WMP language team is working with the team there to get booklets ready as soon as possible. These will enhance the reach of the literature and support the churches in evangelism and discipleship. A 40-foot container with 1.7 million booklets is in line to provide tools for those going through the open doors God has provided.
