News from South Sudan!
A quick post to say that Jacob returned from South Sudan in mid-July after a successful two weeks in Juba and Bor Town. We have details to share in the coming weeks, but here are a couple of quick snapshots. He saw family, met with government leaders about permits and construction plans, and worshiped with the Episcopal Church community.
