Mission Partner Prayer Focus

Kajo-Keji Christian College provides theological, business and education training in South Sudan – a country plagued with poverty, violence, famine and lack of infrastructure. 

Please pray:-

– for the Principal, Rev James Lule Kenyi, as he nears the completion of his PhD

– for efforts to recruit more theology students in August before the new semester in September. Students struggle to pay their fees and Diocese provide no funding.

– for peace to be restored after the recent horrendous violence in the area when the army killed 3 school boys

– for Sue Browning, CMS Mission partner teaching at the College

– for the ongoing building projects – classrooms, dormitory, toilets and chapel – giving thanks for the funding received to date

– giving thanks for the vital part the College plays in building the Episcopal church in South Sudan.
