Pastor Stanley (1962-2021)

Pastor Stanley Lonathan, one of our longest-standing partners, passed away on August 8, 2021. He was founder of Sudan for Christ Ministries, New Generation Church and New Generation Dreamland Children’s Home.

In the midst of the second Sudanese Civil War, Pastor Stanley planted numerous churches, established several primary schools and built the Dreamland complex that housed and cared for about 150 orphans. Since 2006, he was a partner in our Every Child Every Day program, which provided food, shoes, Bibles and equipment for children in his schools and orphanage.

Please remember Pastor Stanley’s wife, Mrs. Vicky Lonathan, their biological children and all their extended children and family from New Generation Church and Dreamland during your prayer time. Stanley’s departure will be difficult for them, and for the ministry, to deal with. We have faith that the Lord will work it all out for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
