My name is John Deng Deng Kuol in South Sudan, Juba. I am an undergraduate in University in the college of economics and social studies. The free Bible college education opportunity at the Christian Leaders Institute is a Godsend.
In my childhood, I was nurtured and grew in the Catholic Church. Unfortunately, my dad died while I was seven years old. His death caused my family to be in critical condition, and there was no help from my relatives. We were an isolated family.
In 1999, I decided to go to school, but my relatives opposed me. They said that I don’t deserve to go to school because they said I am an elder son. This dilemma usually happens to orphans.
However, I didn’t accept their decision until I sponsored my study. I had to drop out two times, but all glory to God that I reached the level I did.
On August 28, 2006, my sister fell unconscious, and she spent one day without talking. They took her to the hospital for medication. She spent three days in the hospital until she recovered. Moreover, the same day she came back from the hospital and became conscious again; she was like a devil.
A group of Catholic church members and I prayed for her, but she wasn’t delivered. So, I took her to a Pentecostal church, where they prayed for her, and she was free. That made me remain in the church and serve the Lord Jesus as my Savior.
Ministry Calling and Spiritual Dream
I desire to share what Jesus has done for me with other people. To tell of the goodness of God and the power of Jesus Christ is my call to ministry. I have been struggling and looking for an opportunity to get a Bible College education. One of the obstacles hindering my spiritual growth was insufficient knowledge of the Bible. I want to share the gospel with the community. The free Bible college education opportunity at the Christian Leaders Institute is a blessing. I am thankful to God and ask God to bless the Christian Leaders Institute richly.
