Sunday June 18, 10am–Seeds of South Sudan: Inspiring Hope, Transforming Lives during Worship
Arok Garang, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, spent 10 years as a refugee in northern Kenya before coming to the United States in 2001. After receiving a college degree from CU-Denver, Arok founded Seeds of South Sudan to help other South Sudanese refugee orphans languishing in the UN Refugee Camp in northern Kenya.

Seeds is a US 501 (c)3 nonprofit based in Colorado. It raises money in the US to educate South Sudanese refugees in Kenyan boarding schools. Since 2009, Seeds has educated 150 South Sudanese orphans to be “seeds of change” in South Sudan. More than 50 of these students have graduated from high school and approximately 20 are attending colleges in Kenya and Canada. Those attending the program will see a video from one of Seeds’ outstanding high school students who aspires to be a neurosurgeon. Arok will speak about the transformation these children experience receiving health care, three meals a day and an excellent education in Kenyan schools.

He will take questions from the congregation.
