Use this card as you pray for mission co-worker Leisa Wagstaff. This card includes a photo and overview of her work.
After nearly 30 years as a mission co-worker, Leisa is working in her fifth African country, South Sudan. While in college, she visited what is now South Sudan and experienced a call to global mission and fell in love with Africa. Leisa helps the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCOSS) strengthen its educational ministry by facilitating the repair and construction of primary schools, developing in-service teacher training programs, and nurturing community participation in education. Statistics show that 70% of children between the ages of six and seventeen have never set foot inside a classroom, only 25% of the school age population is enrolled in school, and almost 90% of teachers are untrained. Leisa invites everyone to share in this ministry alongside her and our global partners.
