Building A School for South Sudan
Philips Bragg made a trip with his wife Leslie McLean Bragg along with their friend James Lubo Mijak, to South Sudan last month. They made this trip to see the school that the three of them built. James Lubo Mijak met the Bragg’s in June of 2001 and shared his story of how he became one of the Lost Boys that the U.S. invited to resettle.
He shared his dream of building a school in his home village Nyarweng, in Unity state. Philip and Leslie thought of Lubo as a brother of their own, and began the journey of building a school and having faith in the unseen.
Philips is amazed by what they have been able to accomplish, and says ““The people were beautiful. Where they can, they wear beautiful colors. And in Dinka (the local language), they said were grateful for the school.”
