John's Suffering
To continue with, I left my country of origin because of war between the National Islamic Front (NIF) and the rebels. Sudan Peoples Libration’s Army/Movement (SPLA/M) which broke out in May 1983 in BOR. It happened that, my father’s homestead was extremely attacked by the Arab soldiers setting on fire, all huts in our village of WANGLEI  in September 1991. Without exception, all my parents were burnt down to death.

I escaped with my uncle’s family to neighbouring village,But soon it was put on fire by the enemies, and my uncle who was the chief, was shot dead in front of me while trying to grasp my hand to speed up our escape. Several people were killed in the attack. Many houses were burnt down.

I walked alone through the forest where i was in danger of attack from wild animals. I also encountered with unkind local people where hatred was created by the conflicting warring parties. I experienced severe hunger, thirst and survived on rare edible wild roots and fruits. I faced harsh and extreme weather conditions, hot during the day and cold beyond human imagination at night .However, I had no clothes to cover my nakedness since the village was attacked suddenly and looted everything.


Worse still, I took the direction southwards, and others lost direction and fell in our move.As we arrived at the scene, the Arabs who had ambushed us started firing at us at random shooting .Many people killed and many scattered . Several others were captured including me. I consequently faced severe beating using belts, blows, kicks, slaps and whips.


I was forced to carry a full box of bullets for several days while my eyes were covered with pieces of clothes so that I couldn’t see the direction there they took us. I arrived in Juba and into jail where other inmates were treated inhumanly. We were made to carry human faeces to the farm with our naked hands, buried the dead bodies killed in front line etc. In June 1992, I was taken to Torit for the preparation of an attack to capture Torit and Kapotea which were under SPLA control.


As the Battalions were busy preparing themselves, I got a little chance and sneaked away following the direction to the east. until I arrived in Kapotea. Thereafter, I was put in prison by NIF and questioned for collaborating with the Sudanese Government by SPLM. After some days, the town was attacked and captured by the Khartoum regime and I fled to Narus, leading towards east where I arrived in Lokichogi on 28th October, 1997.  I was received warmly by (UNHCR) and forwarded to Kakuma Camp on October 1997.

I decided to seek refuge in Kakuma refugee Camp, where I fell in love with a certain young lady called Aluel Atem Wal. At long last, we got married on 24th December, 2006. God blessed us with a baby boy on 31st May, 2007. However, we were faced with financial constraints because I had no job to sustain my family.

The Work of Holy Spirit Through John
It was on Friday 5th march 2010, I wake up at 3: 00am with deep feeling to devote for the Lord .When I finished my prayer at 6:30am.I was got call from Rev: William he told me to came and talk concerning his program in Kapeota at his place .When I arrive there, I call him to met me at the gate because all of us want to go for cyber café.


He came outside and we start greet one other, therefore a women come pass by  with  and nine year old boy and he was sick for epilepsy  sickness ,when I saw him .The Holy Spirit articulate in my heart telling me to pray for him. Therefore the failure heart tell me done, done and the boy when with her mother .After that short time without twinkle  (wink)for my eye a DOVE come from nowhere and it sit on my head .
It was happen to me while I never know it can a happen to me .I thank God for that events. Now i believe that the Holy Spirit still moving in me.
