God’s Tender Mercy (GTM) is a dynamic ministry moving forward, caring for orphans in war torn Pajok, South Sudan. The village is still rebuilding after the devastation created by civil war from 1983-2005. The current conflict that began in 2013 has not greatly affected the village of Pajok but progress in the country as a whole has been reversed. GTM is continuing to grow the Christian ministry in Pajok despite the civil war in the northern and central parts of the country. They are embracing the children and adults with compassion and teaching them that true hope can be found in the person of Jesus Christ. GTM also teaches and encourages participation in farming, caring for animals, educating, leading, preaching/teaching, building, etc.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
