He was very happy today. He wrote for the very first time. He is learning so fast and we are praising the Lord for his success.
I was happy to meet our newest addition to my Ugandan Family, Okello Caleb!
On a sad note we lost a family member last night due to a motorcycle accident.
Bro. Paul(National Pastor) went and preach to our family and six people got saved today.

Please pray for this family as they bury this young father Dennis tomorrow. Please pray for the Gospel to reach many and they will understand.
Today for our Sign Language lesson with Otim Moses many of his brothers and sisters came to learn with him. This is a big praise! Please keep praying for Otim and his family to understand the Gospel.
Nathan taught for the first today and Mark translated for him. Love watching these young men serve the Lord. Broad and narrow road what choice will you make?
He is learning his numbers and alphabet.
First day he hugged me. In June on our first lesson he was so scared of me.
Me, Otim, and Martha(she is deaf and teaches Otim)
Last month, I met a deaf boy, while teaching Bible and Basketball at one of my schools, that could not communicate with me and I became very burden for him. I asked the Lord, the next day if He would allow me to find where this little deaf boy lived. I drove up and down the streets around the school trying to see him but I couldn’t find him. I then passed a young girl I knew from the school and asked her, “Do you know where the deaf boy lives?” She smiled back at me and said,”Yes, he is my brother!” God hears and answers our prayers. Since then my Sign Language teacher, Martha, and I are teaching Otim Moses(Deaf boy) and his family Sign Language. Here are two updated videos of him learning how to count!
I love how the Lord is using Sign Language.
Pray that with this we can share the Gospel with this family of ten!
He was so funny when he Daddy got a phone call. He is doing great.

Please pray for one of our orphans, Josephine as she starts Bible College.
Jamie, Matthew, and Annie were a great pleasure this past week as they travel with me to my schools to minister to them.
Tuesday I met this little boy who was deaf and could not communicate after one of my schools. I stopped what I was doing to try to communicate with him when I realized he was deaf. I didn’t know where he lived and he quickly left. God is really working in the area of Sign Language! Wednesday I have Sign Language class and my teacher is deaf so I asked if she would try to teach him with me. She signed back we have to find him first. To our amazement we found him and his family. This is a wonderful opportunity that God has given. Please pray for Otim John and his family as we try to teach them Sign Language so they can communicate better.
First time seeing himself
He is understanding who he is seeing
He loved seeing his family too in the picture
Teaching him the word family
