Thank you to all CRESS UK Trustees, donors, partners, friends and well-wishers for well done work. Your commitment, sacrifices, love and exceeding generosity have not only change and transformed lives but have restored hopes and achieved self-reliance. Above all, God in Jesus Christ is glorified.

Bishop Joseph is celebrating Christmas at Logu an IDP camp just inside South Sudan. On December 27th and 28th there are confirmations in Imvepi Camp followed by more confirmations at Arua all with the South Sudanese, he expects in excess of 1000 confirmation candidates. Each of these locations is 100 kilometres or  3 hours drive from Arua.

Please pray for +Joseph’s strength and for the candidates and thank God for the life and strength of the South Sudanese Church in exile.
