In the spring of 2012, Flatirons entered in a partnership with Life in Abundance International (LIA) in South Sudan. LIA works in several East African countries, Haiti and Jamaica, each with a customized focus for local church ownership of initiatives. In South Sudan, there are critical needs related to the ending of civil war and becoming a new nation. There is very little infrastructure such as roads, schools, and healthcare and the systems to put these things in place. The communities in which LIA works are remote and hard to reach, limiting our ability for direct involvement. We look forward to learning and growing together with the people of South Sudan as we continue to understand God’s Truth and Grace.
