Through the donations of several people RAU was able to purchase over 9,000 pounds of dried cassava for South Sudanese in the refugee camps near Adjumani. Because we were able to purchase the cassava here locally we eliminated a lot of transport costs and in turn could actually buy more food!
The cassava will be ground and mixed with sorghum. At this time there are around 100,000 in these camps. We are working closely with the OPM (Ugandan Office of the Prime Minister) and the United Nations (UN). Justin, a brother in Christ, who works in the camps has taken care of these important and necessary details.
The OPM and the UN will be the ones who actually distribute the the cassava. We will be allowed to be there when it is distributed to document that it is indeed reaching the people. Justin is currently working on an interdenominational church structure where refugees will be able to meet for worship. With Justin, we now have a place and the contacts where RAU can begin discipleship training and evangelism in the camps. Also, as more funds come in for food aid, we will be able to show the love of Christ by giving food to those who have no means themselves to obtain it. When we are in the camps I will post another report along with pictures.
Please pray with us that we can be a good ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of these South Sudanese refugee camps. Pray for South Sudan as there is still no peace!
Please also pray that we can obtain a vehicle that will make it much easier for our outreaches in these camps as well as for discipleship training in Yumbe and Obongi.

The greatest evil is having the gospel and not doing everything within our power to get it to those who do not have it. May the Lord grant each of us His followers the wherewithal to be obedient disciples!
