Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Last week, MAF Uganda pilot Matt Eagar had the chance to spend the night in Tonj, South Sudan with a group he had flown in from Every Village.
Although one of the main purposes of Andrew and Shayna Brown's trip was to encourage the team there, and to check in with the Christian Radio programming, where Andrew—the radio programming director for Every Village—is discipling the guys at the radio station they run to help make a huge impact on those they reach through the airwaves, as well as those they live and work with. But another important reason was Abraham.
Now, although this trip was only last week, Abraham's story begins back in March—when a woman in Tonj gave birth to twins.
Like everywhere else on the globe, a baby is such a huge blessing—but in East Africa twins and their mamas are extra special. The family arranged a ceremony for these little ones and the Spear Masters came with sacrifices and a scapegoat to bless the children.
When their blessing was finished, Andrew was also asked to give a blessing for the babies and he took this opportunity to share the gospel with the crowd there. Abraham, a 70 year old Spear Master was in awe of the message. Over the next few days Andrew was able to sit and talk through it with him and Abraham, a widely respected, honoured and feared Spear Master, gave his life to Christ.
Now, fast forward to last week.
