The Feeding Of The Two Thousand

Delivering Food To Remote Areas
Thanking God For His Provision
Measuring Out Portions For Families
Relief On The Way For The Hungry
There were no loaves of bread or small fish. However, there were sacks of sorghum, beans, and cooking oil, and getting it to the 2000 souls in 7 remote areas of South Sudan was kind of like a miracle. Just finding enough food to purchase in South Sudan, where food is extremely scarce, was no small project. Identifying the most destitute people, where everyone is in need of food, was quite a challenge. Transportation of the food during the rainy season had some perils of it”s own. But perhaps the most miraculous part was that this food distribution proceeded in a very orderly manner, with no quarrels by those who did not receive food. Obviously the Holy Spirit was overseeing the entire process.

It is beautiful to witness the extended family of God working together to bring glory to the Father. Prayer warriors in South Sudan, Kenya, and the US prayed for relief for the food crisis in the communities where we minister in South Sudan. Our wonderful ministry partners, Baptist Global Response, responded to our request for emergency funds for food. The amazing leadership team of Akot Christian Ministries put together an action plan to serve the most vulnerable families in 7 communities in which ACM ministers. Local pastors identified the neediest families in their respective communities and submitted their list of candidates to ACM. Paramount Chief Mathiang, of Akot, joined the committee of 7 ACM leaders to implement the distribution to 400 families.

Widows, orphans and the disabled elderly were the targeted recipients. The food was given to the woman who was named responsible for preparing the food for each identified recipient, and her or his family. ACM pastors prayed over each family as the food was given out at the distribution centers.
I am so thankful for our faithful LWCT partners who hear of the needs of the destitute and respond with action.

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ”Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:15-17.

Your brothers and sister in South Sudan asked me to express their sincere thankfulness to you for your kindness and generosity to them.
