Evangelism Training Trip – Lainya, Sudan

In January, 2003 a 9 person evangelism team traveled to Lainya, Sudan. Five of the evangelists were from Bishop Taban’s team, and four were from the Sudan Pentecostal Church. Bishop Taban did not go on this trip. The team left Yei, Sudan on January 18 and returned on February 1. This trip was primarily an evangelism training trip. The training trip was limited to participants who could read. During the trip 200 people were trained in evangelism and discipleship of new believers. Then, the 200 newly trained evangelists went on home visits and participated in person to person evangelism. As a result of this person to person evangelism 3,050 people were born again as new believers in Jesus. The JESUS Film was not shown during this trip. We only have one set of projection equipment that was already being used. Approximately 20% of the new believers had been animists and 5% had been Muslims. The Bari tribe was the tribe reached during this trip.

Regarding follow-up, 65% of the new believers were handed over to the Sudan Pentecostal Church, and 35% were handed over to the Episcopal Church of Sudan. The evangelism team distributed 50 Bibles in the Bari language to church leaders, pastors, teachers, and evangelists

The breakdown of expenditures for this evangelism trip is as follows:

Fuel for the Truck $150
Pay for Truck Driver (the truck was not ours) Free
Pay for the Evangelists (9 x $20) $180
Food and accommodations (9 evangelists/14 days) $400
50 Bibles in the Bari language $250
TOTAL $980
