The Lost is Found
by Jacob Guot
At seven years of age, Jacob Guot became a “Lost Boy” of Sudan when Muslim militia members raided his village. He spent the rest of his childhood on the run and as a refugee, until the United States government brought him to America. Jacob’s story is one of nearly indescribable terror, hardship, and trauma, and of God’s love and protection throughout his life.
