The South Sudan Team: Paige Fisher, Mark Fisher, John Ozmint, Nick Williamson, Jim Mixson, Brenda Richards
On Thursday, February 26, Shandon will send our first team to Africa!
The team, led by Mark Fisher, is heading to the youngest country on the planet: South Sudan. Their mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, build new partnerships, explore new opportunities, and engage with a new unreached people group.
The South Sudan team represents all different kinds of backgrounds from farming to engineering to education. Each of them are excited for the journey that will take place over the next 2 weeks. Although one year ago they would have never imagined that they would be preparing for a 20-hour plane ride, that’s exactly what they’re preparing to do right now.
Would you pause and pray for them?
- for safe, problem-free travel
- for God-ordained appointments with people who need to hear about Jesus and other believers we can encourage or partner with
- for team unity & collaboration
- for health and quick adjustment to the new time zone
Finally, let me challenge you to have an open heart to missions. God may take you somewhere in the next few months or years that you would never dream of now!
