God is Moving in South Sudan!

As we celebrate the life and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we are reminded again, that He is the LIVING God!!!

“My souls thirsts for God, for the living God…” (Psalm 42:2)

What privilege to celebrate His life!
And where He goes, life is there. For He Himself IS our Life! (John 14:6)
He came to give us Life, and Life more abundant!!! (John 10:10)

So as we have freely received, now freely we give to others! (Matthew 10:8)

Our South Sudanese ministry team just returned from mighty evangelistic crusades covering three areas of South Sudan. These regions, previously unvisited by our outreaches, are all steeped in deep spiritual darkness.

Many people of these regions worship the dead, bowing down in rituals and witchcraft on the tombs of their fathers and forefathers. The god of this world has blinded their eyes, as the Word states, but praise the Name of Jesus that Matthew 4:16 was fulfilled during these two weeks, in a mighty way!!

“The people who sat in darkness saw a great light; and to them who sat in the region and shadow of death, light has sprung up.” And yes, “babies CAN be born during battle!” As death and war rage throughout parts of South Sudan, God continues bringing life, at the very same time.

YAMBIO

The first area of ministry was Yambio, where thousands gathered to hear the Gospel! During the day, pastors gathered and were trained in discipleship, character development, and ministry leadership, and a new converts class was taught to immediately establish believers in the truth.  The testimonies of the pastors in Yambio were powerful and full of gratitude to the Lord for our team’s coming. Churches throughout the area were re-united and rekindled with the flames of revival.

Our ministry team also visited the government offices, sharing the peace and power of the Lord Jesus. The Governor of Yambio gave his life to Jesus! We praise God and give Him all the glory for the birth of this key leader into His Kingdom! The Governor’s heart was hungry and ready.  And, when he saw that God could use his own Sudanese people to preach the Gospel with love and power, he was even more convinced of the reality of a saving and healing Heavenly Father. One of the directors in the Commissioner’s office also gave his life to the Lord, along with several other leaders.

The evening meetings were packed with people who received the power of God through preaching and through prayers for salvation, healing, and deliverance from deep oppression. Amongst the many healings, one of the MPs received healed during the meeting, which brought great rejoicing. Miracles preach a thousand sermons and confirm with the Word that we DO serve a living Savior! A mother came to one of the meetings crying out for her child who was sick at home, and the Lord healed the baby who was not even present!

Although difficult to count, we know for certain that more than 5,000 people gave their lives to Jesus for the first time during these large crusades.

MARIDI

In Maridi, the three day crusade was large and powerful. Thousands came to hear of the living God! Witchdoctors and sorcerers were gloriously saved, and we saw again the power of God’s light entered into the darkest regions and brought healing and hope!

The Commissioner, the Executive Director of an MP office, and the police inspector of the region all gave their lives to Jesus, and were among those who were radically changed during the days of outreach.

Classes were held during the day for the new believers, as well as pastor’s training sessions. There were many new converts in this area, but there was no church. So, one was established during the days the team was on the ground. The Chief of the region, who had also given his life to the Lord during the crusade, strongly urged all the people in the area to begin attending the new and growing church.

MUNDRI

The next area of crusades was in Mundri. Again, hundreds were born into the Kingdom of God through powerful preaching and testimonies of God’s healing and deliverance. 70 new believers attended the daytime training, and 20 new converts were baptized on the last day in the nearby river.

As we have gone forth weeping with our precious Sudanese brothers and sisters, bearing precious seed together with them, we now return rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves and lives of a great harvest of souls! (Psalm 126:6)

"Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" - John 4:35

“Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!” – John 4:35

Thank you for praying, for sending us, and going with us into “fields that are white unto harvest.”
We go, as the Lord has sent us, and reap as your prayers and provision continue to empower us.

With much love from the whole Favor Family!
