Missionary Story

Evance Onyango was a medical missionary in South Sudan. Onyango hails from Nyanza region and narrates his story and experience in the missions Field as a clinical Officer


In obedience to great commission, we commence our journey from Kenya.” We arrived in Tonj safely even though the journey was very tiresome since it was my first-time flight. The people here welcomed me so warmly unlike the stories we hear from our friends or media. Maybe it could be possible that it happens in other States or regions of South Sudan. The weather here was just like coastal side but pretty hotter than in Kenya.


I was happy that I could see some have farms for cultivation but not big enough to support the community. The truth is war causes problems; those who suffers most are children, especially through diseases, malnutrition and illiteracy.


Here they embrace the word of God and a non-Christian will tell you the truth that she/he doesn’t go to church, unlike Kenya where someone can boldly tell you they go to church yet they don’t. Within the facility I enjoyed morning devotions and church services on Sundays. They are well organized.

Within the facility, I enjoyed every morning devotions, attending church services every Sundays. (https://www.indeedandtruth.org/medical/ )

In my mind, I was expecting to find a bigger facility well equipped with everything. I found a smaller developing facility but has all the basic medicines that can enable us to provide effective care to the needy patients. Another challenge was that patients lack health education thus a number still believe in witch doctors. This greatly contributes to high mortality rate.


What I hated most here is the mosquito bites. Despite the challenge I was able to share the good news of our great physician.
