January 8, we leave with a team from Alabama and OK to begin a new community transformation project in Wonduruba, S. Sudan. The New year brings great opportunities in the bordering countries of Uganda and Botswana. Beginning in Southern Sudan we will work with our friends from Uganda and the team members from USA to partner with local leaders in S. Sudan to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a new area.
Our home church is Crosspointe Community Church in Madison Alabama, and our Pastor John Dees and Elders have designated resources to drill a water well on the property in the village of Wonduruba. CTA supporters have helped us purchase farming tools so the local community can provide food for themselves and offer tangible evidence that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is alive and well. This will be a brutally long trip to begin a project that has been 5 years in the making. Our first trip into Sudan was 2008 to preach a crusade alongside Pastor Zachariah Sserwadda in Juba, Sudan. We saw a hunger for the gospel like only very few will ever experience, the conviction of the Holy Spirit was noticeably very powerful.
The Chief of Juba made an appointment with us to discuss the possibility of our bringing a team to his home village where he said they have nothing! The illiteracy rate is 80% among the men and 90% among women. So after building a relationship of trust with our Macedonian Acts 16:9-10, a man by the name of Peter Yata we are prepared to move within the heavenly vision to focus on three primary goals this trip; 1. Drill a well, 2. provide farming tools 3. Saturate the area with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pictured to the right and below is the chief wearing my Alabama hat, walking off a piece of property he donated for this community transformation project. Please pray for us as we pursue the modern day ‘Macedonian Call’. We need other teams to come alongside us as we have more invitations than we can accomplish. Please contact us if this is something you or your church desires to participate in.
Blessings! Rev. Ken Galyean
