Here's what our gracious Lord is doing in Lungala Bible Ministries.
We pray for you that are not fine and are going through hard trials, may His peace and comforting hand be upon you and lead you through.
The Word of the Month, “I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it” Psalm 81:10.
‘Psalms 81:10, is the passage the famous George Muller the Lord put upon his heart when he was faced with challenges of finances in his plans to expand the ministry, to be able to give gospel trucks and begin an institution for missionaries’.
Its again our great privilege and opportunity to share with you what the Lord has done here. The Lord has continuously exhibited His mighty hand over this Community Church
(Lungala Community Bible Church) beyond what we can understand. As you already know,
12th August will be our official day of opening this church communally. We have invited and are still inviting our village neighbors both born again and those that aren’t. It will be evangelistic service, we expect 200 people. We will also have a light lunch with them since we will be finished by lunch time.
They can’t wait to see this day reach. As a church, we are working hard at different times to make sure the bushes on our foot path are cleared and the weed around the church as you see on the right is photo. The service will start at 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, at our home compound where the church is. If your reading this and would want to join us, you are more than welcome.
We get surprised when we have church work, some ladies and men come to help and do church work. May God bless them more especially their souls J
This was one of the days that we normally slash off the bushes
We need to level the ground, put up the flaps of the tent, to get more space and also be fetching water from the well. It is such a tedious moment both spiritually and physically. A couple of days the witchdoctors spent days calling on their evil spirits. But we the Lord’s church will prevail over Satan’s darkness. If you have been following our newsletters, continue to pray about this, we live in a community where witchcraft is practiced a lot. We thank God that we have churches that are teaming up with us to see that people get to the gospel.
Lungala-Community Bible Church is steadily growing, reaching out to the hearts of people both in equipping church leaders and evangelism. Recently a former lady ‘ Mrs. Loyi’, whom we met in our evangelism days, had got born again but she had back slid. She now joins this community church but she has no bible yet.
As we shared with in our last newsletter, we have no bibles at the moment. All Luganda Bibles are finished. People call us on a weekly basis to see if we have bibles yet and others come to our home to find out if we have them. But we are out of stock. We trust that the Lord will provide at His timing. The biggest challenge we have as a ministry are the bibles. Bibles are expensive to majority of the brethren. And since that most of us depend on farming, you find it’s hard for village believers to buy them as the income from farming is too small.
We normally get preaching and Bible teaching opportunities in near-by churches. And sometimes in High schools. As you see in the caption bellow, Alex was preaching at St. Jannani Luwumu this last Sunday, a Kampala city suburb church. He preached in three services, he came back too tired but thankful for God’s work and His hand that touched congregations. Many believers were so happy to hear about the Lord’s ministry here and what we do in Lungala.
The photo below was the first service for students.
This one below was the second service:
This last one mainly were parents
In one of our discipleship class, (Christianity Explored) class, Helen who has been a Roman Catholic, has given her life to Jesus finally. Praise the Lord! In our discipleship programs, we recruit both born again and none born again. And as time goes on exploring the bible wisely but also straight to the Christ Centered message, a lot of students have come to Jesus. Helen is in high school. She is the one in white T-shirt on my left side, in the photo. She has been carrying a huge cross of ‘Jesus’ in her neck. Pray for her spiritual growth.
Our prime reason while were starting this high school ministry, was to reach out to the lost souls. And we thank God that many have come to Jesus and more are still to submit to His Lordship.
In this month we had a pastor’s conference that took place in the Capital City of Uganda. It was led by brethren from Zambia. It was such a blessing time to be with them, with such a good expositions on Bible. We were blessed to be part of it. Simon took the photo and Alex is right in the middle.
Our prayer requests:
12th August 2017 Inaugural service and people to fulfill their pledges.
