Successful Evangelism by the Jol Wo Liech

By Rev William Majok Mayuang

Jol Wo Liech walk though the marketThe Diocesan youth group popularly known as Jol Wo Liech Nhialic (God Look back upon us) has carried out a very successful local evangelism initiative.

The group members who accompanied the Bishop of Wau Diocese Rt Rev Moses Deng Bol to the Diocese of Aweil started their journey from Wau to Akon the home town of president Kiir on Wednesday 29th March 2017. On Thursday 30th they marched through Milo market preaching the gospel to a huge crowd who attended market day (a day set aside by local authorities for all sellers and buyers to meet in a particular market to sell and buy goods).

On the 31st the group attended the celebration of the appointment of Bishop Moses’s father (Bol Akon Dhal) as executive chief at Nyieth village where they also preached the gospel and performed some dances. On Saturday 1st April the group stormed Peth Lou market and preached the gospel to a huge crowd of over 10,000 people during the market day. They also performed at St Joseph Parish in Aweil town on Sunday 2nd 2017

As a result many non-believers turned to Christ and many believers who had backslidden have renewed their faith in Christ. All those who turned to Christ were prayed for and asked to attend the local church where they will be taught and baptized by the local pastors.

The initiative was supported by World concern, a Christian international organization based in Wau Diocese. The Bishop of Wau Diocese Rt Rev Moses Deng Bol thanked the Jol Wo Liech for their commitment to mission and evangelism. He also thanked World concern and its donors for supporting the Diocesan mission and evangelism initiative.
