GRN is committed to helping hurting people carry their cross. In many countries people are suffering in their journey of life. GRN helps to connect people of privilege with needy and broken people to help share their burdens.
GRN 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.
After years of hard work, GRN staff members turned over the Nugent School to the local government in 2012. The project lasted ten years and was worth all the effort and money put into it. Lives have been and continue to be changed for the glory of God.
Along with the renovation of The Nugent School, GRN has assisted countless persecuted Christians. Whether it was on the front lines (during the war), deep in the land mine infested bush of Equatoria or in the Nuba mountains, GRN has been privileged to aid our persecuted brothers and sisters of South Sudan.
GRN has also had the privilege of helping thousands of people affected by The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), led by African warlord, Joseph Kony. The LRA has brutally beaten, raped, displaced, abducted and killed tens of thousands of people. GRN is helping to bring healing to thousands of victims by sharing God’s love and through practical projects of support. These projects include water wells, the distribution of refugee kits, seeds, food, clothes, medicines, mosquito nets and tools.
GRN is currently relocated its operations to Korgi Village, Juba County – South Sudan. We have erected a new work station, and are working on building a nursery school and chapel that will serve the residents of this area.
On occasion we work together with other ministries and support projects they are working on. When we work together, we get more done. We are not interested in reinventing the wheel for the sake of building a ministry, we are simply trying to serve God’s kingdom.
Please pray for GRN as we continue to be His Hands in South Sudan. Thank you for your interest. Together we can make a difference!
