Kapoeta Mission in South Sudan
E3 partners, Christian Veterinary Mission and Vets with a Mission Kenya.
To God be all Glory and Honor, the trip to Kapoeta was an incredible journey to watch the work of the Lord.
The Toposa are a pastoralist tribe in Eastern Equatorial, living off the livestock that they own. Their culture has remained unchanged to the outside visitors for many many years. The war and tribal cattle raiding have really affected them - guns rule the culture in many ways; there is little value for education and most of the kids are delegated to look after the animals.
E3 and three missionary pastors from Kenya have been working to establish churches amongst the Toposa. They have been effective at reaching the youth through the schools around Kapoeta who then teach Bible stories in their area.
Vets with a Mission Kenya, coordinated along with E3 partners and Christian Veterinary Mission to offer a veterinary camp to the three villages of the Toposa in October of this year. The vet team was made up of four vets from Kenya and two more from the United States; they accompanied Doug and Patricia Caroom who lead the team as part of their continued work with the Toposa of Kapoeta area.
Overall the mission was an incredible success, hundreds accepted Christ and many animals were cared for as an expression of love to the people.
The total number of animals that were treated by the team were as follows:
|Cattle and calves||5,302|
|Sheep and goats||17, 844|
