In the YouTube video below I interview three brothers from the Republic of (North) Sudan about the Lord’s work in their homeland. I do believe the country is in the beginning stages of many coming to Christ alone for salvation …please pray!
We finished our 10 day training on July 24th with these young men as well as others from both the Republic of (North) Sudan and South Sudan, along one friend from Yumbe District and Pastor Tobious from the Metu Mountains. They stayed with us at RAU and the training was done in the RAU Hall of Tyrannus. Because of generous gifts of God’s people we are able to transport them from and back to their various refugee encampments, as well as feed and house them. Thank you to those who support and pray for Reaching Africa’s Unreached!
Pastor Jason Andrew Van Bemmel and Bob Brown did an excellent job covering both Church History and Systematic Theology, which is Modules 4 & 5 of Reaching and Teaching International’s 9 Module curriculum. We also had one day of training on “Farming As a Business” with practicals in the RAU demo plot with RAU’s Agricultural specialist, Prince Apiku Emma. Carol also gave a lesson on signs of Ebola as well as practical instructions of prevention.
It is a joy to partner with Reaching and Teaching as well as Forest Hill Presbyterian (PCA) Church and Rocky Point Baptist Church in walking out 2 Timothy 2:2. Rocky Point Baptist was with us in June with Module 3: Hermeneutics.
It is also a joy to be able to give out biblically sound Arabic books given through the Gospel Coalition International Outreach and the specific books related to Church History and Systematic Theology from Jason and Bob.
Jason and Bob left for Maryland on the 25th. Carol and I miss them and are very grateful for their coming as well as for their families ,Forest Hill Presbyterian Church, and New Covenant Presbyterian Church , who sacrificially sent them off!
Thank you to the MANY who through prayer, financial partnership, encouragement, physical presence and loving gifts are very much a part of RAU. We could not do what we do without your action. We are, as we have often said, a conduit of the grace of God flowing through you to the precious ones He means to bless and strengthen and equip for great and mighty things.
Pray for safety and strength and endurance and health. Pray the fruit that lasts would be produced in our lives and in the lives of those we love and serve.
Thank you and God Bless you,
Carol (Jacob) Lee
The greatest evil is having the gospel and not doing everything within our power to get it to those who do not have it!———–When at least 35% of the world, “the unoccupied fields”, have no access to the gospel, we (believers) must all do all we can to reach them. We who are saved owe the gospel to every lost person, most especially the 2.4 billion who will not hear unless someone breaks into their “unoccupied field” with no thought of their own life!—————-Sowing seeds of love and kindness should not be separated from preaching the gospel of sovereign grace but completely intertwined with it!—————-I am sure that none of us will say when in heaven that we prayed too much, we sacrificed too much, proclaimed the gospel too much, and were too passionate to get the gospel to those who have little to no access to this gospel of grace. Let us together press on to make it our ambition to preach the gospel where Christ has not been named!—————Our goal in our gospel witness is to take our eyes off the “risk” and place them on the cause for the risk. When God compels us like this he often will not tell us the risks…after all there are no risks for the all-knowing, all-powerful God. So let us be AMBITIOUS (Romans 15:20) to see that ALL are reached with the gospel of grace (Romans 1:16) in ALL places…there are no closed doors to the gospel, just some which are more difficult to go through!Jacob Lee
