Mogga Loyo also e-mailed this week, to let me know about an environemental workshop that he had led in Rokon.
The background to this is the deforestation and environmental degradation inflicted on South Sudan by the occupying troops during the civil war.
South Sudan's Forestry Officers are working to grow seedlings to aid in the reforestation of their countryside. This picture shows Mogga (right) with his twin sister Kulang and a Forestry Officer.
Having wisely secured the backing of three local chiefs, Mogga's workshop got people thoroughly involved in planning for action. If I have understood correctly, one immediate outcome was the ceremonial planting of a seedling tree.
Please pray that the people of South Sudan will be able to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to rehabilitate their war-ravaged country.
