South Sudan: Hope for a Father

There was a father who lost his job and began suffering under the cruelty of poverty. Being unable to provide for himself or his children, the devastating results of unemployment brought him to a place of hopelessness.

An observing family member and businessman saw this father’s struggle and made him this offer:

“I promise to give you money and employment if you sell your son.”

The next day the father walked down the street with conflicting emotions. “Do I sell my son for financial security? Could this end my hopelessness?”

His contemplative walk brought him to an outdoor advertisement that read, “God gives the power to forgive. We have a book with stories that can change your life. Call now to get yours free.”

Struck by this advertisement, the father called the phone number. A volunteer answered and advised the father not to sell his child. Moreover, the volunteer met the father, shared the Good News, and, as a result, the father came to faith in Jesus Christ.  

Lives Are Being Changed in South Sudan

This story happened weeks ago in South Sudan because of GCM Ministries’ Mega City Evangelistic Campaign. The billboard, television, radio, and internet advertisements we purchased to promote the Gospel are making an eternal impact.

Our call centers are still receiving thousands of calls, and we’ve decided to extend this Gospel outreach beyond our initial planning. Seeing the South Sudanese people place their faith in Jesus is something we’re passionate about. We’ll stay here as long as God allows.

Will you partner with us in this Gospel outreach? We have needs for many more Power to Forgive Evangelistic Books. Each book can lead many people to faith in Jesus Christ.

  • $30 provides 33 books
  • $100 provides 111 books
