Principal for RECONCILE Peace Institute, Sudan

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Reformed Church in America (RCA) have joined their efforts by sending Reverends Nancy and Shelvis Smith-Mather to South Sudan to work alongside the Sudanese. Shelvis is the principal of the RECONCILE Peace Institute, which equips leaders to initiate sustainable peace in places of high conflict and trauma. Nancy is the project manager for the South Sudan Education and Peace Building Project, developing peace and advancing education in collaboration with the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan, Across, Yei Teacher Training College, and RECONCILE International. "Please pray God will heal the people of South Sudan so they can build a peaceful nation," Shelvis and Nancy write. Home presbytery: Greater Atlanta
