Seriou's illness affecting two of Our staff needs your prayers and support.

ONMI country director, Pastor Timothy Levi has been undergoing serious illness associated with his arm in the critical area of Ball and Socket Joint anchored in the shoulder bone socket. He has been going through pain, stiffness and numbness through his hands impeding his ability to lift things or do long distance driving. The ball and socket joints are unique to only the shoulder and hip.





Mrs. Lilian Legge, a young mother of 4 children, the wife of ONMI’s transportation coordinator needs immediate prayers, and medical intervention as she has been experiencing serious chest pain that echoes to her back. The latest news I received from her husband James this morning was that she has been going for short call (Bathroom) every 5- 10 minutes intermittently and finally, at a medical test result from Nehemiah Field Clinic shows red blood cells in her urine. There is not a sign of pregnancy, and she is in serious pain.

In Eastern Equatoria state, 150 miles east of ONMI Mission headquarters at least four people, including two children, drowned in Mohina River in Kideopo Valley and River Kineti following torrential rains.

Whereas at ONMI Mission Three Headquarters in Western part of Eastern Equatoria, with your support and encouragement, God has been truly our anchor and hope. He has not only not protected ONMI Mission centers and the surrounding community from flooding which we have seen in other part of the country, submerging homes under water, but also protects the Beth Israel farmland from going under water. Thanks to the location of these places on higher elevation.



 

God is still protecting and providing for His people, thanks to you.

Despite all these natural calamities, Beth Israel farmland continues to surprise us with incredible production of food supplies desperately needed to sustain the community in a country ravage by hunger, inflation, and shortage of food. The food products coming out of the field this time around are amazing thank to our team on the ground. I have seen field of Onions, Pumpkins, sweet potatoes, corns, oranges etc.
