It's been 8 months since our station in Doro saw fighting and extensive looting. The project that we set up to rebuild the station was met with great generosity. We wanted to share some notes of thanks from those who received the help that you gave. You can still give to the South Sudan Discipleship project as they reach out to the area.
Thank you for your generosity!

Its hard to convey what it feels like to have all of the things that supported your life in a place and time taken away. The pots I used to cook, the mug I drank coffee out of in the morning, the chairs and table I used to host guests and the bed I tucked myself into at night. These things, while just things and not eternal at all, provided a certain level of comfort and allowed me to do life in a place vastly different than the one I grew up in. These things support the life I have been called by God to live out here in South Sudan. I can’t thank you enough for donating funds which have allowed me to re-purchase these earthly things that are supporting me in living here and serving as God has called me to. Thank you for your generosity in supporting the work that God is doing and the people that He is calling and using.
Thank you very much for helping SIM South Sudan in the 2017 rebuilding of the Doro Clinic and Nutrition Village after the looters had destroyed so much. Because of your giving to this project we were able to replace chairs and tables, office supplies, 2 computers, 6 bicycles, and replace broken doors and latches. We were also able to rebuild much of what was destroyed at our houses and the compounds. The looters had taken all of our household possessions-beds, chairs, tables, dishes, etc. When the first group of people came to assess the damage, they found completely empty houses! Your gifts enabled many of us to replace much of what was taken and also make the necessary repairs to buildings. My husband and I were recipients of some of the funds and thank you so much for the encouragement that it brought to us to be so supported. May the Lord bless you as you have blessed the South Sudan team.
In His Service,
Deane and Ruth
