Missionaries to share their story about trip to South Sudan

Shown are Rev. Jacob and wife Ameha.

Everyone is invited to hear Rev. Jacob George and wife Amelia, missionaries to South Sudan for the Presbyterian Church (USA), speak at First Presbyterian Church Sugar Land, 502 Eldridge, on June 9.

Jacob George teaches a full range of courses at Giffen Institute of Theology. The school trains individuals to serve as pastors and evangelists and in other church-related vocations in the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan. The school is named for J. Kelley Giffen, the first Presbyterian missionary to serve in Sudan.

Jacob and Aliamma are also involved in Community Health Evangelism (CHE) in and around Malakal. This strategy seeks to transform individuals and communities by integrating community-based development, evangelism and discipleship.

Rev. George will speak at a Sunday School class at 9:30 and then deliver the message at the 11:00 service.

Also following the service a pot luck lunch will be held in the fellowship hall.
