Thank you for taking Action to end famine in South Sudan. Mission trip in 7 days.

September 3, 2018

 Dear Co-laborer in the Great Commission,

 Shalom to you and your families in the name above all names, Yeshuah the Messiah.   We will be leaving for South Sudan Next  Sunday  September 9 with our two sons, Nechemyah and Yehudah.  Hannah and our 5 daughters will be staying home. We will be joined by two medical nurses,  John and Joel Alameida, from Minnesota,  a father and son medical team will be joining us on this trip. 

  Mission trip in 7 days. 

The scope of our trip  is to conduct  Medical evangelistic outreach in Pageri County with local pastors and our staff and pray for stability in the country as South Sudan prepares for ending the war and anticipate for the returns of thousands of people coming back from exile. 

We are also going to  validate the  on going mission work in the farm as you can see below at the Beth Israel farmland. It has been a while, we have not given you  report on the progress in the farm. There had been a dry spell in the month of June and July, but the rain has picked up in August . We are raising ahead with  plantation of sorghum.

 

 

"YOU SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND OF GOSHEN"

 

"You shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children, your children's children, your flocks and your herds, and all that you have. There I will provide for you, lest you and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty; for there are still five years of famine."

The Beth Israel Farm

 

   One of the main problems facing South Sudan as a whole is the lack of food. The UN states that every year, an est. 3,000,000 children will die of starvation and famine in South Sudan. 99 percent of all the food in SS is imported from other countries such as Uganda, Kenya, etc. But it doesn't have to be so. You see, South Sudan is a beautiful and very fertile land; you can basically drop any seed you want on the ground and it will grow.  There are plenty of resources around for the people to pick up a hoe and dig. So, what's the big problem?

  

Impact of the UN Driven relief dependence is what Operation Nehemiah agricultural initiative is working to overcome

 

For fifty years, five generations of South Sudanese suffered the effects of a war that drove them to other countries, and what do those countries have to welcome them? Refugee Camps. In refugee camps you don't have to work, you don't have to go out and provide food for your family, etc. because its all done for you. So when you have parents and their children going to live in these refuge camps, and those children grow up and raise their children in refugee camps, over a period of time you give into the mindset of, "Well, I don't have work for anything because its all given to me for free".  Fifty years of that mindset permeating the core of the South Sudanese culture, then all of a sudden the your country is given independence and you are spit into it and expected to act like an adult and fend for your self when you've never done that before. What do you do? You don't do anything about it but expect that someone else will do everything for you, like it's been for your whole life.

Empowerment and mobilization of traditional Christian family farming is a key protection against these destructive trends.   

 

 So what is Operation Nehemiah doing about this? Well, the bible says if ya ain't workin', ya ain't eatin' either (not a literal translation, but you get the point).  Our vision here at ONMI is to rebuild the family, the church, and the community by taking one person, one family, one church, and one community at a time for Yeshua the Messiah (it says that right at the top of the page if you want to read it again).  Operation Nehemiah is taking action to end famine by empowering South Sudanese men to work with their own hands and sustain their families. That is the solution to stopping hunger, not a UN handout. The challenge in post war South Sudan is to disciple men and women to understand God’s will for their lives, their families, and their land. Our goal is to dramatically reduce dependence upon imported food by encouraging families in organic farming, producing healthy food and a stable local economy.

 

 

 

 

It is so wonderful to see a vast land of peanuts growing along with trees loaded with oranges fruits. take a look at  reports on the use of the tractor plowing and harrowing vast area of land  for sorghum plantation. With that also comes the problem of tree stumps that have been detrimental to equipment breakdown. 

 

 Budget: We are now down to $16,000.  We have 7 days  to go to meet our goal.  God willing, the goal will be met. 

 

Agriculture:  $7000.

Evangelism and church planting:  - $3000

Missions - $6000
