We had a great start to 2010 and seen the Lord bless and provide in so many ways. Below are just some of the highlights. Thanks for your partnership and prayers.
In January we had a medical missions team come. They did a mosquito net project, two health seminars, and also a banquet for the health professionals in our area. Hundreds of people heard the gospel and were shown the love of Christ.
God has provided the funds for the completion of our classroom building which will enable our Christian school to continue to grow up to fourth grade. The school now has 4 classes and nearly 70 students.
God has provided the funds to purchase additional land next to the TRUTH Center for a new ministry called the Timothy House. This new ministry will focus on reaching and mentoring young men for Christ. We also hope to use the Timothy House to train young men in ministry. More news about this new ministry soon!
The Lord blessed with another missions trip, a group of 12 people from different churches and ministries. This trip was focused on children’s ministries. There were visits to three different orphanages, work done at our school, and two special outreaches to children in Katesh and Basotu. Over 1500 children received the gospel.
We were able to visit a Barabaig village (Datooga) with the mission group and it turned out to be a great day. We met with the ladies, the elders, and the young people did traditional dances. (I even had a chance to get in on some of the dancing!) We talked with them about many things, and shared with them a few gospel songs that were recorded in their own language. The Lord could be opening a door for the gospel in this area. Please pray.
Our family continues to be blessed with good overall health and safety. Hannah enjoys playing dress up with her friends, Caleb enjoys playing on the new “monkey bars” they got for Christmas, and Sarah loves putting everything she can into her mouth!
