Bishop Ezekiel (from Twik Diocese, I think) spoke at a training event last weekend, and reminded us that all - but all - of South Sudan's infrastructure was destroyed in the civil war, and many people do not even have a roof over their heads.
But Mike and Mogga remain indestructibly positive.
Mike is now in his third year of university, and so far has passed all the exams - he has some every single term! We have discovered that he and my sister share a love of Manchester United. Because of a childhood illness, Mike can no longer play, but he loves following Man United, and looks forward to their game every week.
A the moment, I am hoping to raise some extra money to replace his second-hand laptop, which has finally and irrevocably died. So far, we have sent over £8,000 in all, which has paid for university fees, and basic expenses like rent, books, travel and food.
Mike's latest message ends:We all need God's help in what we are doing May God bless you abundantly and your hands for the work you are doing God bless you all.
