Muordek is from Tonj, but was trapped in Khartoum at the outset of Sudan’s civil war and was therefore raised tor much of his yourh in Khartoun by relatives. He was blessed, in that he entered university there and was therefore exempted from the draft and therefore did not face the dilemma of either leaving the country, or fighting his family and homeland in the South, as part of the Sudanese military. He completed a 4 year degree and when peace returned, moved to Warrup to work in the new government. When Tonj sate was formed, He move to Tonj to help his own people.
Pastor Muordek is passionate about the Lord Jesus, and want to see his people accept Jesus as Lord and grow spiritually and move out of dark practices that is devistating the community of Tonj like triblism cattle raiding and violence, he believe teaching the word of God will do that.
Muordek grew up in a family of believers and attended the Brethren church in Khartoum, during his 18+ year residence there. He also worked in the lab at Swiss Medical Services, where he first met pastor Ruben.
