As mentioned in Pt. 3, many in the South Sudanese community have entry level jobs and are sending a good portion of their earnings to support family in Africa.
Many share cars, and some of these are not road worthy for long trips in winter.
The Sioux Falls community is seeking $850 for a charter bus to get over 50 of their registered referendum voters to and from Omaha, NE on Sunday, Jan. 9th.
If you have means, please help. The PayPal port on the right of this blog deposits into my parish operating account (and we have a super good Treasurer, so you will be properly accounted for tax purposes). Please be sure to put "Sudan Bus" or "Sudan Vote" or something like that on the memo (PayPal provides a memo line).
If you prefer to send a check, please get it out ASAP to

Please send me a message to let me know the amount of any inbound checks - you can use my email that is at the top of this blog.
Thank you and God bless you for your help.
