Medical care situation. I thank all who have been praying for the security situation on our border with South Sudan. However, there has been growing conflict at the Border when the South Sudan soldiers intensified their offensive to the rebels. Many of these rebels retreated to our neighborhood which may prompt the Sudan army to fight them inside our territory. But the security meeting was held with Midigo leaders and our army commanders to ask the rebels go to the camp and be treated as Refugees. We pray that, our lives will not be at threat in such circumstances.
We have also registered high disease burden in the community because of the many self- settled refugees who have got integrated into the surrounding villages. The heavy disease barded was felt yesterday when we could not treat all the sick children and pregnant women due to the overwhelming big number. The Medical team has gone back today to treat the sick who are very desperate as there is no medicine in the other public Health facilities. The condition is also worsened by the ongoing strike by the government Medical workers which has lead to almost no services in the Public Health Facilities.
Pray for the situation at Midigo because of increasing workload against few Medical workers. Daily Dr. Denis (the only one doctor) is carrying our surgeries, especially Cesarean sections.
Pr. Christopher Agaba. An anonymous letter was dropped at Calvary Chapel Yumbe yesterday with a warning to Pastor Chris that he will be attacked for converting their people to Christianity. This follows our decision to form Muslim back-ground believers group. These believers who are about 30 meet at Calvary Chapel Yumbe once in three months to share experience and encourage one another to stand in the Christian faith. We had the recent meeting last Sunday, prayed, shared the meal and it was a great time of joy!
Pray for the security of Pastor Chris and the entire church and also to find favor before the district security boss as I discuss with him to have police officers deployed at his residence today. The previous request was not granted because of the few police officers at Yumbe Police station.
Staff. Pray that there is unity among the staff, especially the school staff where division has started due to tribalism and strife for leadership positions. Also pray for the Appraisal exercise I am conducting with the other leaders such that we retain the staff who will serve the Lord with humility and diligence. But also the Lord to replace with believers who are committed to the Lord and promote unity in the ministry. I will continue to have regular discipleship classes and devotions with the school staff. Pray that God will use these meeting to change lives.Gary I. Kusunoki
