What’s in a name?
The first time I saw this boy, he appeared
pot-bellied, with arms and legs almost skel-etal. his navel stuck out like a pear. his hair
was rusty red rather than the normal black.
Sure signs of starvation. his name was
he was one in a fatherless family of desperate people in South Sudan.
Their village had one grass-roofed hut.
Nearby, a little woven, semi-rotted grain
storage bin stood askew on spindly legs, a
few rusty and battered tin things inside.
I also saw unripe wild mango pits that
had been chewed bare. This family had been
keeping themselves alive with just unripe
wild mangos. I was horrified.
We gave them 50 kilos of maize and left
with feelings guilt. We have so much!
Several years later I went back. I was
greeted with smiles and healthy-looking children. The Christian mother of these children
made it clear that the 50 kilos of maize had
saved their lives.
As a result, she had renamed her little
boy “Saviour.” Today they are all healthy, and
Saviour is in school. I am thrilled, with the
help of Canadians, to continue producing
food on farms we have started within South
Sudan. My tears have many reasons.

Global recordings Network
The gospel in every language
Global Recordings Network (GRN) produces
audio recordings of Christian evangelistic
and discipleship messages in over 6,000
languages and dialects. These recordings
help provide the gospel of Jesus Christ in oral
format to the least-reached language groups
in the world. Nearly t wo-thirds of the world’s
population live in oral societies, each with
its own unique dialect, and the resulting language and illiteracy barriers make it difficult
for Christ’s followers to share God’s message
with them. Listening to the good news of the
gospel on one of GRN’s recordings may be the
only way many people in the world will hear
about Jesus in words they can understand.
Global Recordings Network was founded
74 years ago, with the burden to provide
the gospel in every language and dialect on
