I need your prayers! I'm on the radio in Oklahoma this week!! On Tuesday, March 13th, the listeners of KXOJ in Tulsa, OK, will have a chance to adopt a village in the South Sudan for three years through World Concern.
The South Sudan gained independence in the summer of 2011. But after decades of Civil War, poverty is extreme. The average income in the village of Lietnhom is just $5... per month. Most of the residents eat less than one time per day. 75% of children cannot read or write. Nearly one out of every five children die before their 5th birthday from a preventable disease - such as parasites and malaria - typically from bad drinking water.
KXOJ has teamed up with World Concern for a campaign called "One Village Transformed." The goal is to come alongside the people of Lietnhom over the next three years.
A monthly gift of $33 for three years will help fund a three stage plan to transform Leitnhom:
-In the first year, the money will address basic human survival, making sure the people have enough food to eat and clean water to drink.
-In the second year, gifts will help provide for the children to have a way to get an education.
-In the third year, the $33 a month will help develop small businesses, provide job training, and continue to teach improved farming methods.
Thank you for reading this far:) Please pray for the people who'll be listening to us on Tuesday, that God would move on hearts to give into this work.
Your prayers are so important to me. God answers prayers. Lives depend on the success of this campaign.
