Jahim just wasn’t himself. It was just too soon for him to have fully processed all that had accosted him and his family. Home Alone in a Refugee Camp
Jahim just wasn’t Jahim. Last month ITMI’s Steve Evers sat out under a Ugandan shade tree, seeking some refuge from the intense equatorial sun, while at a small guest house in Kampala, Uganda. Jahim was really glad to see Steve, and he was wanting to discuss what opportunities there were in South Sudan, but Jahim wasn’t Jahim.

There was no relief from the Zambian heat, and the fever just kept rising. Lily felt so powerless, watching him suffer. She knew the people of her church were praying for her son, but thought, “I need to do something more.”
Gathering him into her arms, she set out, stepping carefully over the rutted ground. She was going to see the witch doctor…
ITMI Monthly sat down with Richard Nungesser in hopes of giving our readers a glimpse into the every day lives of his family and what it takes to build the thriving ministry that is equipping and sending missionaries throughout the world. Hearing from Richard is always inspiring, so…ENJOY!
