Summary

radioGRN is currently working in the United States and South Sudan.

It is our desire to awaken and inspire people in North America to make a difference in the world around them. By speaking in several different venues we bring awareness of the plight of suffering people (mainly persecuted Christians). We also give an opportunity for people to “get connected” with strategic projects that we are engaged in. Continue reading “Summary”

South Sudan

kids_7GRN has been working in South Sudan since 1999.

While exploring the needs of the south Sudanese population, GRN Director, Tom Zurowski, found that in every village, Christian education was the overwhelming request of the people.

During one of these fact-finding missions, the Nugent School was discovered. Hidden in the bush and littered with land mines, the dilapidated buildings stood only as a reminder of better days when the Christians in South Sudan were free to live normal lives. Continue reading “South Sudan”

Nugent School

Sudan_April_2009_1_069Many years ago (1999), I traveled to South Sudan to distribute refugee kits to thousands of displaced people of Equatoria and the Nuba mountains. As I journeyed from village to village, I asked the people what the single greatest need of South Sudan was; without exception the answer was “education.”

On my third trip to Equatoria, I traveled through the town of Loka, a beautiful place nestled in an impressive teak forest and spotted with mango trees. The people of Loka were very kind to me. During that trip, I came across an abandoned school campus. I was given a brief history of the school and was guided through the bush to examine the crumbled buildings. As I walked, I prayed. I wondered if this school could somehow be restored. My thought was that we could start with one classroom and then, if God blessed our work, we would grow from there. I knew that the only way that the school would be a success was if it could be self-supported and self-governed. In order for the school to be successful, it had to have community participation from the very beginning. Continue reading “Nugent School”

Statement of Faith

We Believe:

We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through Him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
He came down from heaven,

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
He suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and His kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
We confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and we look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come.

Amen.

 

Everyday life…

We believe that true faith in Jesus Christ affects every area of our daily lives.

We believe that devotion to Christ is to be lived out through love, passion, and simplicity.

We believe that Christianity is nothing less than loving God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and genuinely loving people. He is our obsession and we are His instruments to touch the world He loves.

We believe that God is so wonderful that the whole world needs to hear about Him.

 

How we sort it all out…

“A person only truly believes in that which he is willing to die for.”
Richard Wurmbrand

Woe to me if I should prove myself but a half-hearted soldier in the service of my thorn-crowned Captain.” ~ St. Fidelis

Steady My Steps

“Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me.” Psalm 119:133

Often times we may be tempted to complain about what we don’t have. Many of us love to adorn ourselves with the latest styles. We sometimes even have anxiety over things we are going to wear or if our clothes match. If this kind of thinking ever creeps in and gets a hold of our hearts, maybe we can remember these shoes. They belong to a little boy in Koggi. He seemed quite happy just to own them. Contentment is difficult for us to learn, but maybe God will use this little boy’s shoes to teach us this wonderful virtue. God bless each of you! Please share this photo!
