Two Nations, Many Tribes
“Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth,
To a people feared far and wide,
A powerful and oppressive nation
Whose land the rivers divide.” – Isaiah 18:2a, NASB
God raised up Favor to proclaim and establish the Kingdom of God along the Nile River. Beginning in Gulu, northern Uganda, and now additionally headquartered in Juba, South Sudan, Favor serves two nations. Though Uganda and the world’s newest nation, South Sudan, share a border and speak English, the two cultures are dynamically different.
Favor exclusively ministers in the land through indigenous leaders of the land, called, raised up, and sent in Kingdom force to bring God’s love, power, and healing to people traumatized by war.
Favor brings Community Revitalization and Prayer & Evangelism nationally, primarily to rural villages deep in deserts, jungles, mountains, and grasslands. Our Education & Discipleship and Economic Empowerment ministries work from fixed locations in both of our Gulu and Juba headquarters, receiving, training, and sending leaders to the furthest reaches of East Africa.
We serve the global community by helping these nations reach their nourishing and overcoming calling, so that they are a vitally contributing part in the earth. God’s heart breaks for the tribes of these nations. They are also mentioned several times in scripture (the Cushites).
The time will come when:
“All you inhabitants of the world and dwellers on earth,
As soon as a standard is raised on the mountains, you will see it,
And as soon as the trumpet is blown, you will hear it…
…At that time a gift of [people, the bride presented saved and sanctified by Jesus] will be brought to the Lord of hosts
From a people tall and smooth,
Even from a people feared far and wide,
A powerful and oppressive nation,
Whose land the rivers divide—
To the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, even Mount Zion.”
