The Toposa raise, look after, guide, and protect their cattle- they understand shepherding. Pray that the Good Shepherd will find them, and take care of them and guide their hearts to embrace Him.
Ask God to soften the hearts of the Toposa to hear the Gospel and respond to it. Pray that they become passionate for the Word of God and are eager to share it with others.
Pray for God to call more Toposa Christian leaders to strengthen and cause growth in churches in villages that will result in multiplication. Pray for unity among Toposa church leaders in unreached villages in remote areas.
Pray that as the Toposa students return home during the holidays that they would be a strong witness for the gospel and that they would continue to share the gospel even while facing persecution.
Please pray for Toposa students that are studying in Torit. Pray that their hearts would be so impacted by the gospel, they would be compelled by the love of Christ to take the gospel back to their home village in the Toposa area called Mogos.
AWESOME Toposa worship today. The physical size of the church in Kapoeta has more than quadrupled. And it was packed with Toposa women. No men. About half of them are the result of a new church plant last year. The young Toposa leaders love Discipleship. Their joy and love of the Lord is contagious.
Pray for the 3 Toposa boys studying in Torit. They just finished their yearly exams. They are considering whether to continue studying in Torit, or whether they should find a school closer to home where its safer. Pray they would grow strong in the Lord wherever they are. Continue to pray for peace in South Sudan.
As the start of the dry season is upon us, please pray that the constant raiding and killing would stop, and not increase as it usually does at this time of the year. Pray that the gospel would penetrate deeply into hearts to change the Toposa from the inside out.
It is exciting that the Toposa are being reached by many church teams who come at the invitation of missionaries. Please pray that all those who hear the gospel message may grasp it with both hands, run with it, and make it known among their own people.
South Sudan is experiencing so much turmoil, as conflict continues to be the main topic on everyone’s mind. Hunger follows shortly behind, and although we have asked for prayer for this before, it is now even more of an issue for the people of SS, including the Toposa. Please pray.
