Mission and Objectives of Africa Sunrise Communities

We seek to empower leaders in East Africa through pastoral care and holistic living. We seek to restore communities by reconciling relationships. We work to empower the leadership of local communities with clear goals to establish a lasting impact on South Sudan.

Help Us Complete the Wall!

Education is crucial to preparing the next generation of leaders for South Sudan, a country that received its independence just eleven years ago. It has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world. My vision is to build an elementary school at the Rising Hope Christian Center in Bor. But the wall must be finished first, or all our good work will be in vain!

Dealing with Unforgiveness is the Key to a Future for South Sudan

However, the fruit of forgiveness in our community is the possibility for great prosperity for our people. If we work together, there is no limit to how we can rebuild and improve our people and our community.

Nehemiah, my Life Role Model

Nehemiah could have used his current position as an excuse not to try to do anything about Jerusalem, but he did not do that. Instead, he went out, sent of God, and with the support of the king, to undertake the task of rebuilding his beloved city.

Hope is Unshakable Confidence in God

I feel my people can be a success in the places where they have scattered. I ask those of you who’ve settled in other places not to lose heart and not to give up praying, difficult though it might be.

Changing the World Begins with Changing Ourselves

Changing the world begins with changing ourselves. We need to change our minds about those who may have hurt us, change our hearts, and maybe even change our lifestyles. Just as Nehemiah turned straight to prayer and holiness as the cure for his nation’s state of collapse, we can impact our world today if we work on changing ourselves first.

Whether We Are in Exile or Not, We Must Love Our Country Enough to Give Back

Why do I choose the life of Nehemiah as a model for my life? Why do I like to share with our South Sudanese community worldwide? As Nehemiah did, I have a dream today that God will free his people from all forms of slavery one day!
