US missionary family in South Sudan

My paper this morning had an article about an American missionary family in South Sudan currently evacuated to a UN center, where they are now having to decide if they will stay in Sudan with 10 orphans, or flee back to the US alone. Apparently they were running a sort of orphanage there, and those 10 kids (according to the article in our local paper) call the couple "mom and dad" but it seems they're not actually official guardians, at least not enough for the kids to get US entry papers or whatever.

A quick google brings up an article (with video) on NBC's website: here (not breaking the link because it's NBC, they can handle it!)

I'm just curious if anyone here knows about this family or organization? I just should read around but figured I'd ask...

Clicking their local paper it seems they do just want to be in the US temporarily, and take the kids back to Sudan to live once it's safer. I'm just always intrigued by the various missionary orphanage type people...

The Campbells are affiliated with this group: keepinghopealiveministries.org/

It seems to have quite a few orphanages/children's homes in Africa. The South Sudan Mission is new

Right now the Cambell family, plus the 10 children the care for, are "safe" in a UN refugee camp. Arguably Ma and Pa Campbell and their 2 offspring are taking safe places in the UN camp, food and resources away from South Sudanese who actually need them. The three other American volunteer staff at the mission have already been evacuated.

The best thing I can say -- by refusing to be evacuated the Campbells are drawing press attention to the civil war and the plight of the refugees.

This is disgusting. These people are irresponsible. They are white and Christian, then they think they are above the laws of the normal adoption.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
