We are proud to partner with Pastor Santos, the first pastor to found a church in any of the three camps in Adjumani (there are now dozens of churches).
Widely respected, Santos is an active reconciler amongst tribes and people groups. In 2016, before knowing anything about The Lulu Tree, this man of God and his team began their ministry by gathering regularly under a real Lulu (or shea nut) tree. We were so moved by this testimony and the fact that God led us to partner with him, nearly three years later.
Pastor Santos runs a training school for all tribes to attend, where they can learn hairdressing and tailoring. He also is involved in the training of other pastors and personnel, and is greatly respected amongst the South Sudan camps. It is our desire to encourage and equip this man of God in helping him to help his people.
Prior to partnering with Pastor Santos in any of his community projects, we worked shoulder to shoulder with him to help rebuild his church which had been destroyed in a windstorm:
The greatest desire we have is to see souls saved, to see families reunited with their heavenly Father, to see love poured out on a war-ravaged nation and righteousness and peace sown in the once bloodied fields of their ancestors.
Our Lulu Family in Uganda is dedicated to reaching out in love to those from South Sudan, helping them to heal and to prepare to return home. Won’t you join us?
