John has been supported by Core Training since 2016. Since 2019, he has worked as a full-time lecturer at Bishop Gwynne College (BGC), teaching Ethics and Letters of the New Testament. From April 2020, the students were asked to return home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, John was consecrated as bishop to the diocese of Bentiu, in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan.

The visa application for John’s third year was initially refused due to a misreading by Home Affairs. We appealed this decision and John had to return to South Sudan to confirm the authenticity of his visa. It took several months before John was able to receive his visa. He had to persevere in his studies with these things on the back of his mind. When his visa was finally approved, John rejoiced and we rejoiced along with him.
