The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. | Isaiah 55:10
If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. | Isaiah 58: 10-12
Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”— but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? | James 2:15-16
And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. | Philemon 1:6
The crowds asked, “What should we do?” John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.” | Luke 3:10-11
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. | John 13:34

Since its independence in 2011, South Sudan has been one of the most fragile countries in the world. It struggles with a number of interrelated trauma that includes, civil war, ethnic tensions, food insecurity and severe poverty, rampant disease and a lack of infrastructure. Over 2 million South Sudanese have fled the country as refugees while another 2 million are internally displaced. The Good Shepherd Educational Foundation (GSEF) is fostering hope, unity, and peace through its work.
In addition to providing food and education to children in South Sudan, GSEF has a leadership development program for emerging local leaders. More than 1000 church and community leaders have undergone training on various courses including theological, leadership development, peace building and reconciliation.
"You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops. You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance." | Psalm 65:10-11
