Evangelism and Discipleship Training Trip – Aba, Kurubata, Lebari, DRC and Nyori, Sudan

In October, 2004 Pastor Steven Dada and his 11 person evangelism team traveled southwest to Aba, Kurubata, and Lebari, DRC and Nyori, Sudan. The team left Yei, Sudan on October 15 and returned on November 25.

The results of what God did through the evangelism team are listed below:

Towns Indicated Decisions for Christ
Aba, DRC 1,500
Kurubata, DRC 4,700
Lebari, DRC 950
Nyori, Sudan 600
Total 7,750

Approximately 45% of the new believers had been animists, and 3% had been Muslims. The JESUS Film was shown in the Lingala and Bari languages to the Mundu, Avokaya, Logo, and Kakwa tribes. One new Presbyterian church was planted in Kurubata. Follow-up of the new believers will be handled by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and the Community Evangelical Church of the Congo. A total of 500 bibles in Lingala(DRC) and 100 in Bari(Nyori) were distributed.

The team reported that the church that was planted in Lebari is doing very well. The team spent 3 days teaching at the Lebari church.

Much discipleship training occurred during the trip in Nyori, Lebari, and Aba. People from surrounding villages attended this training. People from Mitika and Lasu attended the Nyori training. Our discipleship training was entitled, “The Cost of Being a Disciple”. The teachings were centered on Luke 14:25-33 and Matthew 10:37-39.

The people of Lasu and the surrounding villages spoke fondly of the Midland, Texas team who had visited them in March of 2004. The people wanted to know when the Midland team will return to visit. They said that the Midland team is speaking to other people in the United States about the suffering of the people of Southern Sudan.

One deaf child was prayed over and was able to hear again. This caused many people to believe that the miracles they saw Jesus doing in the JESUS Film are real and still occur through those who believe in Jesus' name.
