In the summers of 2011 and 2012, Paul felt a call to go back home to South Sudan and help in whatever way he could.  The way he did that to do his Supervised Practice of Ministry between churches in Ethiopia and South Sudan.  On those trips, the seed that would become SSEM was planted.

That seed was discussed with Robert when Paul returned to the United States.  Robert had a bottle of headache medicine on his coffee table and Paul said, “Do you know how many lives this could save?”  There was a moment of awe between them, with both thinking about how cheap and readably available these medications are in the United States, and how vital and unavailable they are in Africa.

These pictures are from the 2012 trip that planted the seed that would become SSEM.  Take a look at the first steps of our organization:
