In each archdeaconry we visited, Bishop Bullen did confirmations. There were roughly 20 or more people in each village – ranging from children to senior citizens.

I understand Bishop Bullen made his Episcopal visitations and did confirmations at Advent – only 3-4 months ago. And yet here we were – just 2 months later –making another round of confirmation visits and confirming 20 or more people in each small archdeaconry. How is the Sudanese Church bringing in so many people so quickly?

Without a doubt, the Christian church is growing in Lui. I wonder how they are achieving this evangelism. And do they have catechism classes? Are these folks coming in from “the bush” to accept Christianity? How are they achieving such massive numbers??
