God had opened door after door for a new ministry for me to reach more children here in Uganda. Bible & Basketball is a method the Lord has given in order to get into more schools. I volunteer to teach basketball if they will also allow me to teach the Bible! Praise the Lord for what HE is doing through this new outreach opportunity.
I am currently learning sign language in order to minister at the deaf school here. The Lord has also given the opportunity to teach at the school of the blind. This is certainly a challenge, but the Lord is providing!
Please pray with me for this new area of ministry the Lord has given me.
One of my Bible Club boys used to cry because He was so scared of me. Now he is faithful to church. Praying for my neighborhood to be turned upside for Christ.
After some time in the States with my family for Christmas, I am back in Uganda!
At our First Bible Club of 2018, I thought we would only have around 20 because children are still in the village, but we had 45+! Praise the Lord. We learn a new song, “Oh how I love Jesus” and our story was about Paul and Silas.
Mark and I started Discipleship in January of 2016 then Nathan and then they brought Emma in May of this year. They prayed the sweetest prayer tonight and they already have one each they are praying to disciple in 2018. That’s what it is all about. Amen!! Ezra, Okello, and Connie join them in praying for the ones they want to disciple.
Had the privilege to Disciple this lady for the last six months. She led the singing in Jr. Church a few Sundays ago before I taught. I’ve never been that ready to teach. God has really given her talents to serve Him. Love how God is working.
Granted I had the older children from the teen class with me, but many more visitors and the front row on the girl’s side is from the Bible Club. 80+ in Sunday School. Okello, the boy that was saved came also!
Praise the Lord!!
My heart is overflowing I need to write from start to finish. So nervous that morning even left without shoes haha. God has given victory over one soul that was bound in sin. To God Be the Glory. This is a lot but kids getting shoes at Bible Club last week. Children meeting me at the church and walking to the Bible Club with me. God sure showed up. Thank you for all who prayed.
This is Okello from the Bible Club, who I showed The Bridge tract. Nathan witnessed to him today and I came and helped and Okello Patrick got saved! The FIRST one from the Neighborhood Bible Club to trust Christ! The angels are singing!
"O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come."
