Seed Effect V

For more than 50 years, the status quo in Sudan has been dominated by a single idea: conflict. But, a window of peace opened and in the time since the cease fire, God has planted hope & love in the hearts of His people. And in that peace, the first fruits came to life in the form of a new nation.

Seed Effect is one of the products of that window of peace and in the five years since its forming the organization and her people have faithfully worked the soil that God first tilled. Now, as the clouds of conflict grow in Sudan, Seed Effect stands ready to continue its legacy of changing the status quo, one life at a time.

The legacy that began in the obedient heart of one family in the West has multiplied in the hearts of an exclusively Sudanese staff. And these faithful people — born in conflict and reborn with hearts of eternal peace — are the face of hope in their communities, no matter how thick the cloud of war in their country grows.

The past will not define their future. And, for them, the fight takes new meaning.

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 
— 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

This instruction from Paul, Silas & Timothy to the church in Thessalonica comes on the heels of asking them to put on the accouterments of war. The circumstances that surround us are not to define us, but through thankful hearts, with a spirit of thanks we redefine the world around us.

This series of short films is built on the idea of "thanks in all circumstances". Using the Kuku words for "thank you very much", we asked people to tell us their stories and then formed a simple question. Today, are they thankful for the one thing that proved most difficult.

Their answers are astounding.
