South Sudan


There are estimated 600,000 Taposa living in South Sudan

Over the past 20 years, Julius Murgor and the Pokot Outreach Ministries (POM) have raised up hundreds of pastors and church leaders to reach the Pokot tribe in Kenya. One of those young men trained by POM is Reuben Meriakol. After attending seminary in Kenya, Reuben helped to start a dozen churches in Kenya and Uganda. Feeling a calling from God on his life, Reuben and his wife Loice moved to South Sudan to begin a ministry to the Taposa tribe. Much like the Pokot, the Taposa live in a harsh region plagued by a 20 year civil war, lack of water, and basic medical services.


One of Kensington’s values is Through Others – making disciples who make disciples. Our partnership in South Sudan is the beautiful fruit of this kind of investment: Reuben Meriakol grew up in the Pokot region of Kenya, and his life was impacted by Kensington and Pokot Outreach Ministries. Nearly two decades later, he and his wife have responded to God’s call on their own lives and they are making a gospel-impact on the Taposa tribe of South Sudan through Church Planting and the outreach initiatives of Partner Organizations.
