July 24th, 2014 (Nyamilepedia) — The initiations of nationalism and religious support in any country are a sign of helping helpless communities living in the Nation. I guess that means you are a member of the Religious aid churches in South Sudan. In God’s past it would be nice to deploy our church leaders somewhere and have it do some good for a better change in order to help our street children. And for us to understand and believe in this issue of street children in our country is to see the possibility of unity happening among ourselves first but we were not allowed to kill infant or minor like in recent hostilities of living in Juba.
It is always a hard way to go and you could find that our helpless street children are been bulked by city night robbers in dark corners. I agreed with our theologians’ preacher who always takes a lead of unforgettable heart of unity toward the whole nation and maintain peace or stability when exercising the words of Almighty GOD. It is actually horrible means indirect insult to the Nation that the rest of the world doesn’t intervene in some issues to do with this and that can be handled by the country itself. In order to topple the streetwise in some countries, give the people food and medicine and they will create a normal life and cool behaviors but the fact is that, some of these children living on the streets today after long civil war between the two Sudan (s) were born in wealth-off families and as a result of war challenges, they found themselves living in unbelievable places since they had lose their parents which we used to called them heroes of south Sudan. Again we have the ongoing current war in our new nation, not only by guessing but so many children are still going to remain homeless, orphanages and nowhere to go, thus they will join the streets.
Hopefulness; the greatest reassurance that you can give a child is a sense of hopefulness. Because of our relationship with Christ lord Jesus, we have a hope beyond what the world can give. We can say along with the Psalmist in Jesus’ testimonial in some of Gospels, “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.” (Psalm 62:5) In a time when a child feels helpless, we can show him that our hope is in Christ. A favorite Bible verse of one third-grader is Psalm 56:3: “When I am afraid, I will trust in you in everything.” This verse is a comfort because it reminds her that God is with her. God gives us a sense of peace and hopefulness through His love and care.
Remind children of God’s presence with us. God gives us this assurance through promises such as Deuteronomy 31:6: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Jesus’ words assure us in Matthew 28:20: “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Verses such as these can be comforting to children. Use these times of dealing with crises to express to children the peace that Jesus promises in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” You may be the instrument for showing children that our peace and hope are in Christ. In south Sudan yesterday and today, most of the just gained rich people sees themselves no one can destroy them with their property. But if you give your hand, then; Almighty GOD shall open for you a great way and to continue blessing you.
Surviving on the streets in cold South Sudan as those with age 6- 8-12-14 years old. Even that says enough why this problem has got to be removed along with its concentration if people get united and to thinks maturely on how to help out these helpless children. Some of the street children are those who lose their beloved parents during the long struggled civil war of the two Sudan (s) which today resulted to some enjoyable factors like freedoms, justice, equality and prosperity. With thousands of people starving and even more thousands of people in concentration camps. How can the Republic of south Sudan turn blind eyes to the abandoned homeless children inside our own boundaries? Iam certainly not unsympathetic to the plight of these children in South Sudan.
To assured the general public, challenging our recent GOD given country at this moment is none of my concern, which is not my point. My point is that people need to wake up to the fact that countless thousands of children living on the streets of south Sudan are abandoned and homeless with equally tragic and horrific circumstances. We cannot amend these global circumstances with any legitimacy until we can correct our own mistakes and to realize its fundamentalism to have children in safe side in our societies. Meanwhile, the most religious countries in the world like south Sudan are all a great places to live.
The guest writer is a founder and positive preacher of why our children are suffering on the streets of the republic of south Sudan before the current ongoing war erupted lately last year 2013 December, yet a lots of work can be done to help them not to stay on the streets, your nation is your childhood and the backbone of your country, every child deserves family.
