Namude 800
Angutua 500
Mboroko 650
Rastigi 1,700
Tortin 2,000
Total 8,260

Approximately 55% of the new believers had been animists, and 15% had been Muslims. The JESUS Film was shown in the Lingala language to the Mundu, Avokaya, and Baka tribes. Follow-up of the new believers will be handled by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the Sudan Pentecostal Church, and the Episcopal Church of Sudan. The team reported that our Jesus Film planted churches in this area are praying fervently for rain. The people of this area have begun to fear starvation as the rains have not yet started. Additionally, a large number of refugees are returning. The United Nations is not properly caring for these refugees. A total of 500 bibles were distributed in the Lingala language.

In some of the villages visited (Maridi, Wowo and Embe) the team taught 2 days of discipleship training in the topics listed below:

The team reported that many sick people were healed after the team prayed individually for each sick person.
