  7. First Presbyterian Church Westminster, Maryland Our church's mission team has decided to support your work in South Sudan (and wherever the Lord leads you at this time). We will be forwarding $1,500 to your account soon. Although I cannot make promises, I expect that this support will continue annually while you are serving the people of South Sudan. May the Lord richly bless you and the work you are doing.

  8. Even in middle school you were an inspiration. I am so proud of the work that you two are doing for this planet and it's people. I shared this with Mosi Secret. He is now a journalist at the NY Times. He said that you were still the same! Chris, Omar, Mosi, and you made an awesome academic team! Take care and be safe....South Sudan is blessed to have you!
