Celebrating 30 Years of Service

Celebrating Over 30 Years of Service
to the People of South Sudan

The South Sudan African Mission began in 1988 when IDES (International Disaster Emergency Service) of Noblesville, IN sent Paul and Marilyn Douglass to Khartoum, Sudan.

As a result of South Sudan African Mission, Aweil Bible College was founded and in 2007 with eighteen in the first graduating class. To date there has been over 75 graduates. The Malek Christian Hospital, funded by SSAM, opened their doors in October 2009.

Dr. John is Coming to the U.S.

When the SSAM team was in South Sudan in January, 2022, we discussed the possibility of Dr. John coming to the States. The process has been long; but by the time you read this newsletter, Dr. John should be in the United States.

Dr. John has been granted a one-year long visa; he can stay in the States for three months on each visit. It will be possible to extend another year when there is a need to travel again.

To quote Dr. John, “This opportunity is so profound. I am excited and I can’t express in words how grateful I and local team are about this. I will bring the SSAM Christian’s gratitude in person to the USA and tell everyone in pictures and in spirit. The ministry of Christ has no borders indeed, and we need one world that praises and glorifies the name our Lord Jesus Christ. I am not forgetting that my coming to the USA is a miracle. I got to come in the time of COVID-19 pandemic backlog where people wait for more than two years to travel overseas.

Our delegation will be traveling between September 10-14. And the three-month period will begin upon his arrival. Church tours can begin the third week of September. “I am the only Christian religious leader traveling with the government delegation to the US”, said Dr. John recently. As you can see from our following schedule, we are going to be very busy. If you would like to have us visit your church and we can fi t it into the schedule, we would be very happy to come and have you meet Dr. John. He will tell you fi rsthand how things are going in South Sudan.

Report from Dr. John

It has been a trying time for the Christians in South Sudan. We are thanking God that many are fi ghting through several obstacle to serve the Lord in different capacities. Some by administering healthcare services at Malek Christian Hospital; some by preaching the good news in their community, some by offering counselling services to the most hopeless.


Students meeting at the Aweil property

The Aweil Bible College will reopen after students and teachers requested a short break to be home with their families during farming seasons (June — July).

September 4: Hello Sister Bev, I am at the hospital now with my son Marshall. He fell and his friend fell onto his thigh which resulted in a thigh bone fracture. We are requesting your prayers as we prepare him for a bone surgery. As of Tuesday, September 6, Marshall has had surgery to set his femur bone and will be in the hospital three days and will continue physical therapy at home.

Matuic Church of Christ

The roof of the Matuic Church of Christ recently collapsed due to heavy rain. The members of the congregation have been busy making bricks for their new structure and are asking for $10,000 to put a metal roof on their church building.
