Birthing Hope International, South Sudan

Our vision can be summarized by saying that God has commissioned us to be a part of: Restoring, Equipping, Empowering His people through Christ centered relationships and unifying works. We are focused on intentional, relational discipleship that sees people restored in relationship with their creator, equipped to be obedient disciples of Jesus & empowered to go out and fulfill their God given purpose for His glory.

What we do is both spiritual and practical; we labor knowing that God’s intent is a whole work of redemption and reconciliation for man & woman, concerning all of their relationships, as well as their physical environment.

We firmly believe that Africa can and will see transformation through strategic love and the empowerment of God’s people to BE His Church wherever they are called to be!


 

Below you will find descriptions of the 2017/2018 outreach projects we are working on, and some of the financial needs for the ministry. We hope you enjoy sharing in these, praying along with us, and partnering with us in those areas you feel led.

 

Equipping Communities (Weekly gatherings, held in 3 month blocks)

* Worship Community: Weekly gathering of young adults who are already serving, or want to serve the Lord through music ministry. This group is focused on cultivating a community of young people who will be Romans 12:1 worshipers wherever God plants them. Along with small group discipleship, prayer & worship, we work to practically strengthen their vocal and other musical abilities.  

 

* Women’s Health Education (W.H.Ed.): Weekly gatherings for women who want to learn more about women’s health. The goal is to cultivate a Christ-centered community, and provide health education that will equip and empower women in their role as caregivers. This year we will be teaching two different classes, 1. a basic health ed. class and 2. a basic training in health evaluation skills.          

 

* Leadership Training: Weekly gatherings for the current and upcoming leaders of Divine Mission Church in Munuki. The goal of this community group is to assist our friend, Pastor Abraham in his desire to further develop a strong leadership team. This year’s group will be focused on building a more united vision for Gospel multiplication, and creating a framework for good communication. 

 

 

Primary School Outreach:
This is an outreach to JCC Munuki Primary School, led by Nayana and Sarah. They use art and music to enrich, encourage, and share God’s love with children in grades 1 through 3. This year’s outreach will be more of a VBS style camp. We will be hosting a week long Art & Bible camp for the children during their 3 month Christmas holiday break in January. The camp will welcome children from the school, but also from the general community. 

 

 

Farming God’s Way: (F.G.W. also known as “Foundations for Farming“)
FGW is a discipleship and agricultural tool which works to see people restored, equipped and empowered to be all that God has created them to be. You can read more about FGW here: www.farming-gods-way.org  We have been using this tool to share to Gospel with and disciple people among the Mundari tribe, in a rural area outside of South Sudan’s capital city. 

 

Church Construction Assistance:
 

Divine Mission Church had been saving and planning to build a new church building, because their current building (15+ years old & built from mud bricks) is too small for their weekly gatherings, and any further growth. The piers for the new foundation were set, but in January 2016 it was revealed that these were not adequate enough to continue the building. We are providing the church with assistance in coordinating with leaders and building committee members to see the church construction completed.  The picture above shows their faithful progression in this work, and below you will see the sanctuary at its most recent state . Our goal has been to assist wherever we can (with skill, knowledge and our own muscle power) because, we know this new building will mean more people being restored, equipped and empowered through the local church!

 

Latest Progress Pictures:

Needs: Financial gifts big or small are appreciated! The church still needs to raise around $8,000 to complete the roof, rough electrical, and other basic finishing touches. Those who would like more information about helping to see our partner church’s new building completed, please Contact us

 

 

Clean Water Filtration Systems:
We plan to install a water filter system for Divine Mission’s Primary School this year. Clean water is a life changing gift, and we are happy about the opportunity to provide it for over 700 children a day! Needs: This ministry has been provided for, and is currently in construction. We hope to be finished with it by February, 2018.
