Dear BGC Prayer Partners,
Thank you for your continued prayers for our college and South Sudan.
The news at the college is encouraging. Some have been there four years, beginning with a foundation year. I attach a poster.
BGC held a very successful course on Peace Training. I attach the principal's report. This is someone we could all learn from.
We can also learn much from Bishop Anthony Poggo's book Come Let Us Rebuild directed to his own people but it gives a great incite into the challenges and is an encouragement to us all. I commend it. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Come-Let-Rebuild-Anthony-Poggo/dp/0953036936/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1413364883&sr=1-1&keywords=poggo+anthony
Archbishop Daniel continues his work of Peace and Reconciliation. This website overflows with so much hope. http://www.reconciliationsouthsudan.org/
May God bless you all for your continued support for the college. By the grace of God we shall be in Juba from 22nd of this month (October) for the graduation. Following our visit we shall report back with lots of pictures!
