The Connor team currently in Yei, South Sudan, preached at a number of different churches in Yei Diocese on Sunday January 20.
It was an early start for most, with some of the services getting underway at 7.30am. Bishop Alan preached in Emmanuel Cathedral in Yei, Canon Sam Wright was in St Paul’s Church, Archdeacon Stephen Forde was in Jigimoni Church, Rev Andrew Sweeney was in St Philip’s, Dr Frank Dobbs was in the thatched Nyogwe Church and Judith Cairns and CMSI’s David Gough were in Longamere Parish.
Longamere is 13 miles along a very rutted dirt track road. DCO Karen Bushby was at the Cathedral for Bishop Alan’s first English language service, and also travelled to Longamere where Judith was preaching. Photos of these services can be seen on our web album, follow the link on our home page. Photos and reports of all services will be published on the team’s return from South Sudan.
On Monday January 21 they visit Mongo where Connor Diocese funded the new primary school.
The team has uploaded blogs to the CMS Ireland website.
