He is Risen & Alive, Juxtaposition of Pesach & Resurrection

Shalom my dear brother and Sister in Yeshua.

It is my earnest prayer and expectation that this newsletter finds you well in Yeshua as we celebrate the juxtaposing Biblical significance of Passover (Pesach) and its fulfilment in the power of Resurrection of Yeshua from the death. Living in a world that looks so hopeless at a time and groaning for her redemption, I therefore urge you my brothers and sisters to stand firm in the faith and in the power of His might. We owe no apology, neither ashamed of the Gospel nor bow down to woke culture engaged in serious rebellion against God's ordinance. As Messianic Rabbi Saul declared "For I reckon that the sufferings of this surpassing times are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."


 

He is Risen and He is Alive- Thus the tomb is Empty

The Resurrection power is the summary and Climax of everything Biblical in the entire Creation declared by Elohim in the Old and the New Testament. The climax of all God’s promises to remedy the Fall of Adam’s race and separation from Elohim, the flood, the call of Abraham, Israel in and out of Egypt, Pesach, the laws & the prophets, the temple sacrifices, all converge at the Resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah from the death. He is our Passover Lamb. As the scripture declare, without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin.

"Your lamb shall be without[a] blemish, a male [b]of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats."


Yochanan the Immerser, the Last Levitical Priest who came as a forerunner to level the Plainfield declared of Yeshua as “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1: 29. This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” The first born had to die at the hand of YHVH as a judgment against sin (Exod 11:5).

Yeshua is the firstborn of Elohim and the first man born of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Set-Apart Spirit.


So Yeshua bore the judgment of our sin which is death which is the wages of sin (Rom 6:23; 1 Cor 15:56). 3. A perfect, blemish-free lamb was to be chosen for the Passover lamb (Exod 12:5; Deut 15:21). Yeshua in accordance with Torah-law was selected four days before Passover and anointed (set apart) as the Lamb (John 12:1).



Apostle Saul went on to debunking the doubts and the fallacy of those who disputed the Resurrection account.

“If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Messiah has been raised. And if Messiah has not been raised, our preaching is worthless, and so is your faith. In that case, we are also exposed as false witnesses about God. For we have testified about God that He raised Messiah from the dead, but He did not raise Him if in fact the dead are not raised.…” But e has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through one man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through one man. For as in Adam all die, so in Messiah all will be made alive." 1 Corinthians 15. Therefore, have a blessed Passover & Resurrection weekend.


 

From the family Mission front: Your participation in the work of ONMI has been uplifting and encouraging on every front. I will be embarking on one-month Mission trip to South from May 1- June 4. This is my annual mission visit to the South Sudan to validate and update you on all the effort you have been putting forth to push us forward in 2022. I ask you to pray for my family and the families of our field staff for God's protection and continuum provision.


Triangle of Operations in all three ONMI mission centers simultaneously.


In this dynamic mission report, I will share with you the marvelous hands of God and what is doing in three ONMI’s operational field centers in South Sudan at Yerushalayim Summit on Mount Gordon, The Bethlehem Mission center in Kerepi, and Beth Israel farmland accord.

The triangle demonstrates how ONMI staff can graphically visualize mission’s strength, weakness, and focus based on check and balance Cost, Time and Scope. It also helps us visualize show to benefactors, reason for increasing mission budget, time for procurement and the scope. How these three variables are linked—if one of the variables is changed, the other two must be adjusted to keep the triangle connected. If the triangle breaks—that is, if one point is moved without adjusting one or both other points along with it—the quality of the project will suffer.


This is ONMI’s challenges and opportunity to implement the vision and its goals. Scope is directly proportional to both time and cost, which means it moves in the same direction as those factors. When scope increases, time and money must also increase to tackle a larger project. This is how we have been growing and adjusting with all the projects going on in all the three mission centers of Operation Nehemiah Missions.


 

Beginning with the Yerushalayim mission center at Yerushalayim Summit on Gordon Mountain. It is here we have Nehemiah Trumpet Call (NTC97.3 FM) Gospel radio station where the Gospel News has been preached, touching tens of thousands of the lives of South Sudanese and Ugandans with the Good news every day for 14 hours a day. This is on going effort thank to you for your prayers and practical generosity to sustain the work. However, in these past few years we have come under serious trials and attacks from the work of the enemy using thieves to destabilize infrastructure up the 2800ft plateau where the tower and the broadcasting studio sit, and this is where ONMI staff and their families live up there to serve our community.



However, the Mission water system that supply staff and community with water up there has been constantly vandalized and destroyed by thieves who come and cut the copper wire that supplies the solar electricity to the solar sub- pump located 1500ft down below the foot of the mountain. They have done this 5 times in 5 years. Finally, we caught the thief red handed in the act of removing the wires. He was arrested and jailed. Please pray for his salvation as we are working on remedying the situation.

We want to thank you for helping us fix the problem once and for all. God is faithful and he protects His own.






What you are seeing here is our ground team and electrical engineers procuring and laying out a solution to stop this from happening again and again. It is a difficult task, where there is faith, there is a way. Electrical wire cheaper than copper will be used this time. Aluminum wire and galvanized steel piped will run above ground suspended at least 7 ft above ground on 10 electrical Poles to move power and water up the mountain. We also thank you for providing transportation for our radio broadcasting crew to go out and do reporting. The challenges we face at Yerushalayim Summit is the balancing lever of Scope, Time, and Cost. We need a lot of development up there such as improving the coverage area of the Gospel News using Shortwave radio station encompassing all South Sudan, the Nile valley, and the Horn of Africa. This is where we need to your prayer strengthening the scope, the time, and the cost of ONMI vision.





 

In Bethlehem Mission center: This is the epic center of all ONMI’s mission activities. The country director lives here with his family along with 20 staff and their families and 400 students in boarding school. The general activities here are numerous. The main church is located here. Mission Administration, Bethlehem Primary School construction, Nehemiah Field Clinic construction project, the Nile Beth Israel church project, plan Nursery bed Project, water points, Internet services, engineering workshop; welding, block production, plumbing, are all taking place here.















 

This is the place where returnees from exile make their first home before they branch off and move to their own village, build their own home, and start rebuilding their lives. It is here we have the water points to supply the need of thirsty community and life stocks. It is here people come and grind their grain into flour. So it is here we are confronted with challenges to balance the Scope, the Time and Cost of procurement of ONMI vision. So, as you are reading this newsletter, you are part of the equation to bring to bear on the provision and implementation of these effort. Iam forever, convince that God will bring to completion the work He has started. You are an integral part of God’s instrument bring about to make a change in South Sudan for the glory of God. Therefore, we thank you for your tenacious love and generosity. We could not do with you.



 

Moving into their own homes in vast open space ..

Lately we are witnessing amazing transformation of people who have returned from exile, briefly made Bethlehem mission center as their temporary home to start their new life in South Sudan. Now, they are setting up their own huts and houses to house their families and live free in very open field, full of potentials. You are looking at a people reclaiming their own God given dignities from years of hopelessness entrapped in the UN run refugees’ camps in Uganda. One can say it is just “ Straw Lean on”. But this is of their own making, giving them self-worth.












 

Beth Israel Farmland is ONMI’s Mission Center, located on the highland of Akko Mountains. This is where ONMI carries out major agricultural activities to establish permanent food security for the region instead of continuous dependence on imported food from other countries. It is here we carry out numerous cultivations of varieties of crops and fruit and lumber trees such as the Sorghum, Bee Keeping, Eucalyptus and teak trees, sweet potatoes, beans, oranges, cassava, mangoes, millets, and sesames plantation.















The challenges we face here also involve the Scope, Time, and Cost. We have a feeder road condition which makes it very difficult to get to the farmland during heavy rainy season. The road is not paved. We are responsible through your benevolent support to maintain the road. Therefore, we are currently praying and looking into acquiring heavy equipment such as road compactors, dump truck, grader etc. to maintain the road.


 

Prayer and support for these utility Equipment the make up the triangle relationships: In scope, Time and cost for 2022.

ONMI needs Dump truck: It is evidence that to carry on the implementation of development in South Sudan under the vision of Operation Nehemiah Missions with wholistic approach to create tangible infrastructure that will last, we need a dependable dump truck, with large capacity, relatively new in good shape like this one to haul building materials from one place to another. Our work require sand, gravels, bricks, lumbers, cement etc. Hiring just one load of a tipper truck to bring building material from Uganda to ONMI’s construction location on one trip costs $600. Now if we have our own dump truck, in a long run, it will save us a lot of money. This dump truck in this picture cost $40,000. We can also use it to generate income to support ONMI.


This is a sample

 

We need Water Truck: ONMI’s work requires a lot of water to help with work on the construction site. We don’t have the capacity to supply water on construction site because of lack of equipment like this. Yet the need is great. Last month, ONMI was called upon to use its backhoe to fix potholes on a major highway that was causing accident. One equipment we wished we had in place was water truck to bring water on the location of the work. Water truck like this one, used cost $35,000. We can also use it to generate income to support ONMI




This is a sample


 


We need mobile Concrete mixing truck: With number of houses, road and structure we are building for the mission such as houses, church, and road work and hospital, a mobile concrete mixing truck will come handy. ONMI has three compounds and there are works perpetually going in each one of the locations. A Concrete mixing truck like this cost $55,000. We can also use it to generate income to support itself.


This is a sample

 

We need Road compactor: With so much demand for keeping floors, road and construction work tightly compacted to avoid warps, cracks, erosion etc., ONMI needs a road compactor, and a small compactor of this size will cost $23, 000. We can also use it to generate income to support ONMI.

We need all season Farm Irrigation equipment: Submersible Solar Pumps for Irrigation. The pump delivers water up to 10,000L per hour and is sold as a complete package including solar panels(285W), piping of up to 1000m, pump controller, panel stands, fittings etc. This equipment is cri help ONMI maintain food security during dry season or drought. Couple years back, all these trees were bought and imported from Uganda but now, with your support we have Nehemiah Nursery bed producing all the fruit trees we need from within the country. thank to you for your generosity. Cost of project and installation $7,000:


This is a sample but we got the well. We stronger pump
