Evangelism Trip – Loka, Kulipapa, Limbe, Kagwada, Kenyi, and Lainya, Sudan

In November, 2004 Pastor Jackson Abari and his 11 person evangelism team traveled east to Loka, Kulipapa, Limbe, Kagwada, Kenyi, and Lainya, Sudan. The team left Yei, Sudan on November 15 and returned on December 5.

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

Town Indicated Decisions
for Christ
Loka Round 1,800
Loka West 790
Limbe 1,300
Kulipapa 1,100
Kagwada 800
Kenyi 500
Lainya 450
Total 6,740

Approximately 55% of the new believers had been animists, and 10% had been Muslims. The JESUS Film was shown in the Bari language to the Pojulu and Bari tribes. Follow-up of the new believers will be handled by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the Episcopal Church of Sudan, the African Inland Church, and the Sudan Pentecostal Church. A total of 480 bibles were distributed in the Bari language.

The team reported that the churches planted in Lainya County are doing very well. These churches are in the villages of Limbe, Kenyi, Loka West, Lainya, and Kagwada. Since a limited amount of training was done during this trip, these churches are asking for much more discipleship training in 2005. The team reports that approximately 70% of the people who in previous trips had indicated decisions for Christ are still strong in the Lord.

God is doing mighty works through those who have made decisions for Christ. The chief of one village was born again because he said he had seen the evidences of changed lives. He said since our JESUS Film teams started visiting his area, the crime rate had fallen drastically. This occurred because most of the criminals made decisions for Christ. The chief said he wished our teams could visit his village every month until everyone in his village got saved. Then, he could close his court and spend his time planning for community development rather than chasing after criminals.

In Lainya a child that was born deaf and unable to talk was prayed over by our first team that had visited this area. After the parents were saved and the child was prayed over, the child was able to hear and eventually talk. The healing was not immediate but was gradual. The child’s parents had been consulting witch doctors, but their child was not healed. After they were born again and trusted in Jesus the parents report that all things begin working better for them in addition to the healing of their child.
