As part of its Mission, St. Matthew supports
The Lutheran Church of South Sudan.
Church of South Sudan (LCSS)
Despite years of trying to achieve peace,
the division and war between North and South Sudan continues.
Since December 2013 when the last peace was broken, the
entire country has been engulfed with war. Malakai, the
home city of the LCSS was destroyed, completely burned,
resulting in 150,000 fleeing and 20,000 taking refuge at
a UN Camp. The Church offers hope for its people.
