WFP versus ONMI's approach to Food Security in South Sudan

What you are looking at is not a cornfield in Uganda. This cornfield is in Beth Israel Farmland in Eastern Equatoria, South Sudan, one of the profound examples of your generosity to encourage sustainability in this infant country. I want to thank you for your prayers and support for Operation Nehemiah Missions in South Sudan to create food security by engaging South Sudanese in agricultural development as the country is in a very serious crisis of food shortage. Your actions are true example of Faith and Action a Living Faith driven by the fruit of the Holy Spirit.


WFP versus ONMI views on Food Security coming out of South Sudan

On September 13, 2021 (JUBA), according to Sudan Tribune, World Food Program is cutting food ration to 100,000 South Sudanese IDP.

General news: South Sudan

September 13, 2021 (JUBA) - "The World Food Program (WFP) a proxy of the UN will suspend food assistance for more than 100,000 displaced people in parts of South Sudan for three months as part of a prioritization exercise driven by funding shortages this year." Sudan Tribune Reports.

But not too fast.! ONMI's agricultural initiative through your help is supplying returning families from exile with food that is locally grown by South Sudanese for South Sudanese. Look at these cornfield, if UN proxy organization, ( WFP )can provide farm tools and seeds to help the community to work with their owns hands , perhaps, 100, 000 people won't be cut off from food distribution because they can cultivate and harvest for themselves. This is why your direct financial support to ONMI to provide tools and seeds is transforming the lives of many people. ins so critical. You have been helping Operation Nehemiah makes the different by empowering people to work with their own hands and stop depending on the UN ration.


"Faith without Good Deeds Is Dead, as James 2: 11-17 says " What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless." Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”

Our ground team wants to thank you for all the support you have rendered to the ministry to help them stamp out hunger. The year 2021, has been a year of tremendous challenges and as well as success in ONMI's quest through your collective participation to bring a fundamental changes in the way how we do farming with good harvest to impact lives of a people and a country which has been written off as a failed state.


Gospel in truly transforming lives- 29 people baptized bringing a total of 109 people since June.

I was in tears of Joy watching the transformation of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the returnees who have been faithfully discipled and brought into the Kingdom by the national Pastors. The church is growing on daily bases. In February, there was zero Christian worshiping in Bethlehem Mission center. Today there are over 500 people coming to church and the building is maxed out, people are now gathering under a big mango tree to conduct worship service . Iam so grateful to see young women modestly dressed conducting Hebrew Dance, along with young men dancing for the Lord. Many are receiving sound teaching and getting baptism.. This is the fruits of your love and encouragement.

Since the returning from the exile, the year 2021 has been a year of unifying the ministry vision, focus and goal in South Sudan proper on all fronts in term of staff, family, church, education, radio broadcasting, agriculture, construction and the Great Commission. God is is blessing the work of our hands. It is all about His Glory. The central Focus is the Great Commission, winning souls for His kingdom. We must not lose sight of that.
