God's Tender Mercy
Hi, we are God's Tender Mercy!
In 2006 a man came to our church and presented the plight of the people of Sudan. The peace treaty between the Muslim north and Christian/Animist south had been signed in 2005 but atrocities were still common place. The people had suffered from over 20 years of war involving government armies, militias, and various rebel groups. The bible makes it clear that the root of all conflict is sin and that only the saving work of Jesus Christ can transform a person into the person God desires. The broken nation of South Sudan can be transformed one heart at a time.
I made a heart decision to go and God made it possible. In 2007 I went to Nimule, South Sudan to teach chaplains and pastors. There I met David who had a thirst for God’s word. Our hearts were bonded! In 2010, through much prayer, the Lord led us to begin God’s Tender Mercy (GTM) to take care of orphans in David’s home village of Pajok, South Sudan.
Due to war, disease, and abandonment many children have been left to fend for themselves.
God tells us in Deuteronomy 10:17-18; “For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing.” And in Matthew 19:14 Jesus said: "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
GTM's desire is to bring these children to Jesus by loving them, caring for them, and teaching them the full counsel of God’s word. Our prayer is to raise them up to be godly men and women who will change South Sudan and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ!
We also desire to reach out into the surrounding communities, as the Lord leads, to share the love and good news of Jesus Christ. After 20+ years of war, the people are thirsty for the word of God. As people respond, they are invited to attend verse by verse biblical teaching, and encouraged as they walk with God. Many have not heard or understood the good news of Jesus Christ yet. We must tell them! Jesus’ last words were: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. Matthew 28:18-20
Only by prayer and total reliance on God Himself will we know His specific plan and be equipped to fulfill it. As the Lord goes before us, He will prepare the way and teach us His ways. May the name of Jesus be lifted up and God be glorified!
Currently, we care for 20-30 children, have 150 children in the GTM school, are farming 20 acres, and are putting the roof on the church building. Praise be to God!
We are the only school in the area that teaches the children through the bible. Pray other schools begin to teach the word of God to their children. His word is living and active and will stir the hearts of all that hear.
Prayerfully consider partnering with us in the Great Commision with great compassion.
