With the effects of jet lag almost completely gone, it’s time for some reflections from last month’s trip to Sudan:
- The weather in Baliet near the Sobat River where we tent-camped was like August in Dallas, only a bit hotter and with fewer trees for shade. Though they do have a rainy season, being so close to the Equator it is really hot year round.
- We saw a steady stream of people from around Baliet, providing relief of their dental pain primarily by extraction. It would be great some day to be able to do more.
- We met some very courageous church/community leaders who will be needed as the referendum approaches next month to see if southern Sudan secedes and becomes an autonomous country.
- Thirty-three baptisms were performed on the final day that we were in Baliet after a week of Bible teaching and witnessing.
