Evangelism Trip – Wulu, Sudan

In June, 2003 Evangelist Chol Deng and his 11 person evangelism team traveled 2 days north to Wulu, Sudan. The team left Yei, Sudan on June 16 and returned on June 30. The team showed the JESUS Film in many towns and villages in the Wulu Sub-District including Wulu, Domoloto, Doteko, and Malou. During this evangelism trip a total of 1,450 people were born again as new believers in Jesus. The JESUS Film was shown in the Dinka language. Approximately 70% of the new believers had been animists, and 10% had been Muslims.

The new believers and the evangelism team were persecuted during this trip. The local authorities allowed no pictures during the trip. An area leader attempted to seize our camera, and insulting things were said to the team. Also, another area leader warned a number of the new believers to stay away from him and his group. Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:11-12 were fulfilled during this trip, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven.”

Even though they were persecuted, the Lord blessed the team. The team prayed for the sick and many people were instantly healed. Many people who practiced witchcraft saw these instant healings and repented of their sins and brought their magic charms to be burned by the team.

Regarding follow-up, Evangelist Deng and another evangelist will return to this area in one week. We have purchased two bicycles for them to use in follow-up. One new Presbyterian church will be started in the town of Wulu. Also, the Episcopal Church of Sudan will help with follow-up. The evangelism team distributed 200 Bibles in the Dinka language to born again believers who could read.

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

Medicine $20
Fuel for the Truck $200
Pay for Truck Driver $30
Pay for the Evangelists (12 x $30) $360
Food and accommodations for Evangelists $750
200 Dinka language Bibles $1,000
TOTAL $2,360
