On 30th January 1906 Marked the beginning of the new mission in the Upper Nile region and in Bor in particular, South Sudan.
This mission was led by the England missionary called Archibald Shaw (Machour), which base at Malek in Boor South,

The first venture of the Gordon Memorial Sudan Mission (GMSM) began with high hope and expectation from the early Dinka converts at Boor. Shaw Mission went smoothly for two years by his commitment and determination. Later in 1908 due to his leave to Britain, the mission was closed because only Shaw determination kept the mission alive. After that, he returned from England and kept Malek going on over the years. Shaw persist to leave the place in spite of the poor responses from Dinka, which caused some Shaw ’s missionary colleagues to give up and left because of the tropical disease and language barrier. But Shaw go ahead with his mission until 1950s when he was taken to Kenya because of the sickness that later led to his death in Nairobi.
The seeds that were sown by Shaw yield fruits during the civil war of 1950s in the south Sudan. Hence, Christian faith spreads widely and deeply in Boor area. But due to the civil war persistence and flood in the region, this led to the closure of Melek mission 1955.

Christian youth mission

Furthermore, the spiritual sons of Shaw later departed from Malek and went further to towns Juba and Khartoum. These groups got inspiration from the holy Spirit and worked at those areas till 1974, when the Dinka Christians students who were in Juba went ahead with spiritual motives aiming at spreading the gospels at their boundary.

In 1974, the first group among the Dinka Christians was the Christian youth mission formed in Juba by Jieng Student and deacons. Those students were very few but they later got influenced and motivation from ordinary Equatorian believers living in Juba who were spiritually equipped, they also witnessed the consecration ceremony held in Juba for the Equatorian Bishop Yeremiah K. Datario. That event gave the students idea of effective Gospel mission basing on their own effort and commitment. The second event was the enthronement of Yeremiah at Yambio and Benjamin Wani Yugusu at the Rumbek, which finally enhanced their mission in which seven of the Dinka Boor Christians were invited to attend the ceremony.
