Michele Perry founded the Yei children’s Village, a compound which now houses more than 90 children and thirty leaders and staff in 2006. Yei is little more than a collection of dirt roads and shacks. The children’s village and its Primary School are like an oasis in an area that has been impacted by prolonged war.
The children at Yei experience a family dynamic with house mamas in a community setting. As a Church we have been involved primarily in the financing of “houses” in the Yei village compound and the annual Christmas Party.
The year has started with a National Prayer Conference for Pastors and Leaders from around Southern Sudan being held at Yei. One hundred unexpected children turned up for lunch one day at the conference and God multiplied the food!!
The children have their own church and this year Beida, one of the children, preached her first sermon.
