Shalom to you and the family. Thank you for your prayers and support.Thank you for lifting up our hands in addressing the challenges here in the USA in our ability to spread the vision of Operation Nehemiah to greater population of the body of Yeshua the Messiah in the States side who genuinely want to help if they know of someone they can trust who is doing something for the people in South Sudan. When Hannah and I are in the country, this is what we do and must keep on doing, and that is fund raising and spreading the word. I'm available to come to your church to speak, peach and share the Great Commission message with your congregation. But the Lord has to open the door . Amidst the challenges, the Lord has been faithful, we walk by faith not by side. So in 2018 we want to dedicate more time in getting out across the country to raise support and awareness about the ministry.
Tomorrow two of our children, Abijah, Jemimah and I will be heading to Nashville, TN to present Operation Nehemiah Missions at a large Christian conference held by NRB ( National Religious Broadcasters) in Nashville, TN beginning from February 27- March 2, while, my wife Hannah and four of our children will be guarding the home front.
This is NRB;s annual gathering of thousands of people coming together to share a common vision for the Great Commission. The vision of our ministry fits right in there. God willing, I will be able to have 30 minutes to speak to some interesting group who will be interested in what we are doing in South Sudan. Discussing the work of Operation Nehemiah Missions in the area of Nehemiah Trumpet Call 97.3 FM Gospel radio broadcasting , its history, focus, successes, challenges and future plan will be something I would like to discuss.
After March 2, we will proceed to Florida from March 3- 12 for speaking engagement in various churches to raise support for the ministry. Organized by Rev. Dan Frodge who lives in the area of Tampa, FL . This will be my first time to set up a booth at NRB exhibition hall.
We will get to hear VP Mike Pence who will be one of the main speakers. With your prayers and support, we have secured Exhibitor's booth and be able to share the vision of Operation Nehemiah with thousands Christian Radio broadcaster across the country, building new donor base and prayer partnership with various Christian entity across the country to expand our base. This is one of the best way to meet people and build relationship with them domestically here in the States side while we are in the country to expand Operation Nehemiah.
Each time, we raise fund here, we don’t usually use the fund here in the USA for publicity about what the ministry is doing in South Sudan. Most of the time, 90 % money raised goes right out into the field. We really want to do something in 2018 to get the word out more by dedicating a small budget for publicity here in the States so that the ministry remains strong and in the position to send funding to do the work of the Lord in South Sudan. We have been praying for this opportunity but the Lord has to open those doors.
In the South Sudan, our ground team are busy implementing the vision of Operation Nehemiah Mission in rebuilding the family, the church and the community for the Great Commission.
The mission focus of the ministry for the year 2018 remains the same as we outlined it in our previous newsletter. we ask for your continuous prayers. of the $68,300 budget we request to carry on the activities on the ground, so far $8000 has been raised.
We are praying with you to help us meet the dateline for the remaining balance of $60,300 before the end of April. I will be leaving for South Sudan in the last week of April after my wife deliver our baby in the third week of March 2018.
