Our special greetings to you! The year is coming to an end and very soon it’s going to be Christmas😊
November has been a month of reflecting on 2Timothy 4:1-5. We have been learning the importance of emphasizing the Scriptures in this ministry. It has become paramount for us to make this our ministry theme.
Our Thursday Bible study groups at church have really grown. We have had new people join - some from other churches, or some who have come to know the Lord and have joined our church.
During this season of emphasizing the Scriptures, Peninah gave her life to Jesus. We had met Peninah three years ago when we were doing our Monday door-to-door evangelism. At first she refused to believe in Jesus - she was not openhearted to the gospel. This time round, she received Jesus with tears! This was the first time I have seen tears flowing down the cheeks of someone receiving Jesus after hearing the gospel. We prayed with her and encouraged her to come to church. Our church – especially the ladies will give her a special welcome and will encourage her and lead her to know Christ more.
Therefore, having these leaders texting and requesting more information about the seminars is a sign that what we do makes sense for them and they would like to keep it up. Many of these leaders have encouraged their congregations, not just to read the Bible, but to put it into practice. Many of them have taken Bibles to the churches in their villages. For us, this has been so encouraging, especially when we see the leaders encouraging believers to have the Scriptures in their homes.
We continue to ask you to support us in our ministry, especially in the distribution of Bibles. We
have been without Bibles for a while now. We continue to trust the Lord that He will make provision to meet this need. Above is Pastor Mumpe Julius with Alex. Below is Pastor David getting Bibles for his local churches back in Kyegegwa district.
Testimonies from people following the evangelism medical team that came to treat the village people have continued to emerge. A lady, whose name I don’t remember, told me how her breast was healed after medication. She had a pain in her left side breast and she was breast feeding. After getting medication from the medical nurses, she eventually got well. Another lady had kids with high fever malaria, and they were healed too. People who were tested for HIV were thankful for free and quick testing of their blood. Mothers who had kids with flu were thankful for treatment that made their kids better. The only disappointment was that we have hardly had anyone thankful for the gospel that was shared that day ☹ - although we are sure that the seed we sowed will sprout in its own time. Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ is so important.
Women in our church have developed prayer altars in the homes of any person who welcomes them. These are done every week on Friday and are led by church members. Some of the people who have joined these prayer meetings have been converted, and have come to know the Lord through the Word and the prayers offered to them. The picture below is a recent one at Julius’ home. We had Frolance share the Word and Scovia shared her testimony. Scovia was once involved in witchcraft and had gone through a painful life serving Satan. She is thankful for having met Jesus, and now has touching testimonies about what the Lord had has done for her. The picture was taken without any lights. We were praying for the boy in a yellow t-shirt whom the doctors had diagnosed with blisters in his throat. Please join with us to pray for him that God will restore his health.
