Our special greetings to you all. We praise the Lord who has been with you in every circumstance, the Lord is good all the time. The scripture below has been of great encouragement to us.
A group discussion
In the group discussions the leaders were contextualizing the text together. Forty seven Pastors/Church leaders were divided into five groups. We provided accommodation and food for all. Most of them we had met them through village mobile trainings, which we do with church leaders, more especially for those who pastor village churches and have hardly attained any theological training. It was a blessing to catch up with most of them.
The picture above is the group photo of all the leaders with Alex on the extreme left.
Do you remember in our May Newsletter we wrote about a popular city pastor who burnt Bibles? This group called us to teach them what the true Bible is. So, we have had a close friendship with them as a ministry. The books we were holding are CHRISTIANITY EXPLORED MINISTRIES materials. It’s a discipleship book. Each member was asked to carry out this program in their local church; it basically focuses on the book of Mark.
As LUNGALA BIBLE MINISTRIES-UGANDA, we will be ensuring that these materials are really used. We will be available for them in case they have any questions, or if they would want any guidance from us, or even when there is a need for extra materials needed.
General group discussions
After our teaching, a couple of church leaders would come to make photocopies of our materials. We didn’t make copies for all, as it is expensive. The common question each church leader was asking "How do we encourage our congregation to realize that meaningful preaching must have a reasonable amount of time?" This was after asking them to avoid 10-15 minute sermons. Usually at our church the sermon takes 45 minutes to an hour each Sunday.
The Ministry of the Bible distribution
Above is a church leader enjoying her Bible study in the morning Bible devotion at the conference. The pastors were so happy to find affordable trusted Bibles at the conference. Scovia who is a church member here, says “after finding a Bible here, I saved every small coin so that I could get one. I had previously spent my money in witchcraft, so why can’t I spend my smallest coin to get the Word of Life”. She said this to me (Alex). I think that was heart touching.
