Northland has supported this mission for four years. When we started that first year, we expressed to the mission's board our desire to fund the drilling of a water well in a village in the area that had no local source of clean drinking water. By the end of that first year sufficient financial support had been provided to see that desire fulfilled. Beginning the second year and continuing to the present, Northland has provided the financial support to pay Dr. John's salary and buy some of the medical supplies needed for the mobile medical clinic. Dr. John is the chief administrator and physician a the clinic in Aweil - one of the 5 medical facilities located in South Sudan. He also serves and the on-the-ground contact person for all SSAM mission activities.
In December, 2021 Northland sent $2500 to SSAM to purchase bibles in the Dinka language for the students at the Aweil Bible College. 50 study Bibles printed in the native language of the people to whom the gospel is to be presented were purchased, and each of the students in the current class was presented his/her copy. It is the intent of the Northland eldership to provide these Bibles to each student in the Aweil Bible College going forward, and to insure that the already-in-the-field evangelists who have trained at ABC has his own study Bible in the Dinka language.
