Our congregation has had the privilege over the last several years in supporting the Sunset International Bible Institute in their Solar Mission Program by contributing funds to help a major multi-continent effort using hand-held solar-powered audio players to reach the world with the Gospel. While we have contributed every year to this worthy effort, we wanted to share this story that SIBI related that touched our hearts. Please pray for the sacrifices and efforts made to do God’s will as well as the love shown by brethren for others in Christ. For the elders, Ken D
Sudanese Preachers Sacrifice to Help Ukrainian Refugees.
Barry Smith, director of the Sudan Project, was in Uganda distributing SIBI solar players to a group of South Sudanese preachers who live in the refugee camps. The brothers asked Barry about the war in Ukraine, the welfare of Ukrainian brothers and sisters, and what American Christians were doing to help them. Following fervent prayer for Ukrainian brothers, they decided to take a love offering to help. They asked Brother Smith to forward their donation to SIBI. The amount these poor but generous Christians collected in their local currency was equivalent to $11.18 USD. Barry believes that many of these preachers emptied their pockets, giving what they would have used to purchase food for their long walk back to the Sudanese Refugee Camp. Like the Macedonians, these Sudanese preachers “gave…beyond their means, of their own accord, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 8:3- 5)
