Bishop Moses dedicates two churches.
On 14th - 15th Jan 2012 his Right Rev, Bishop Moses Deng Bol dedicated two chapels to God in Marial Wau Archdeaconry, one being Tharkueng Chapel and the other Sukolonia Chapel. Both ceremonies were overwhelmed by state government officials, county representatives, payam administrators and church leaders.
More than two thousand people turned up to the opening ceremonies at Tharkueng chapel and Sukolonia chapel. The pastors in charge of Tharkueng Parish, said, "its a great thing for us the Christians of Tharkueng to praise and worship the Lord in such a building we have been longing for. We are very grateful to the Samaritan's Purse for making us proud. May God almighty bless them in a big way and continue doing the same thing in other places” Then the deputy county commissioner also said, “its a blessing for the people of Tharkueng Payam to have such a unique church building to praise and worship the Lord, I therefore thank the ECS leadership his Right Rev Bishop Moses Deng for this well done job. Our part as government at the county level as well as payam we will complete the remaining parts and will install the windows and doors”.
In his closing remarks His right Rev Bishop Moses Deng Bol said,“Samaritan's purse International has made me proud, I couldn’t imagine without Samaritan purse, I really don’t know what kind of suffering the diocese of Wau would have had. It’s something that I have not any words to describe, because the finances of my Diocese are so weak that it cannot even afford to pay her pastors leave alone constructing churches. But now I am so relieved.
I must also recognize the effort and commitment of Samaritan's purse which has undertaken to train Christians on a discipleship program and also pay the teachers. This is another great achievement which alone our church administration couldn’t manage, what then can I say other than thanking and encouraging Samaritan's Purse to continue with the same spirit and recommended to all as the most successful organization in Wau Diocese. And so in conclusion may we all ask God to bless Samaritan's Purse International so it may continue doing the same thing in this Diocese and beyond.
