The Adult Forum on May 16th will be led by David Deng Mayom, who is one of the "lost boys of the Sudan" and who has been attending Trinity for the last several months. David will talk about his walking hundreds of miles with other small boys from his village in southern Sudan to refuge in Ethiopia and eventually moving on to Kenya and to this country. It is an astounding story of faith and resilience.
For those who would like some background information, these are books David recommends:
