Lent/Easter/other offerings help South Sudan!

I have changed the PayPal widget to the right of this page, and will keep it changed for some time. Instead of gifts to the blog, please consider gifts that will go to direct support of Christians in an emerging nation.

The people of South Sudan see education as a key to a better future for their new country, and I am supporting a couple of initiatives. I welcome your contributions if you are so moved -

To help pay teachers in the new school at Pajut, South Sudan


To help a South Sudanese student complete a teaching degree

All gifts will be handled through my parish operating budget and so will be fully accounted and tax deductible. You can use the PayPal feature or you can send checks to

Church of the Good Shepherd
2707 W. 33rd St.
Sioux Falls, SD 57105

Use the PayPal memo line or write on the check whether your offering is for "Pajut Teachers" or "Teaching Degree" so your gift is properly applied.

God bless you! I will be blogging updates and news.
