Prayer for Uganda

Please be in fervent prayer for Uganda and Kenya. A swarm of locusts larger than anything they have seen in 70 years is plaguing their countries. They are destroying all the crops in their path. If they don’t stop them it will cause a massive famine in East Africa that will affect millions of people. Pray for a strong East wind to blow them out into the Indian Ocean. They don’t have the ability or technology to destroy them. This swarm is larger than 250 football fields. With the predicted rains in June this swarm can grow up to 500 times larger if it is not stopped. The swarm may reach Soroti today which is where Pastor Juventine and Elizabeth are. Naluko where Hearts 4 Africa is as well as Majok is not far from there.

Uganda Blessings

Greetings from Naluko, Uganda.
Our team had the honor of meeting an entire family with special needs yesterday near the church in Naluko. We were told of this family by Pastor Majok of Calvary Chappel Naluko. The mother is completely blind and lost her husband awhile ago and her daughter and two grandchildren live with her in a small one bedroom house. To add to this, her daughter and both grandchildren are lame. She told us the these diseases run in her family as her parents were disabled also. They were such a sweet family and were so excited to extend a warm welcome and show hospitality to us as we visited them.
We asked if we could share a story with them and they all accepted the invitation. We shared the story of Jesus and his time here on earth, his crucifixtion and his ascension to Heaven. They listened intently and we asked if they would like to receive Christ’s call to join Him in His Heavenly Kingdom. The mother said she had received Christ as her Savior but her daughter said through the interpreter that she would like to. We prayed with her and upon completion her face was filled with joy and her hope was restored. We know that seeds were planted into her grandchildren and many neighbors that were there also listening to the Greatest Story Ever Told.
Thank you all back home for your prayers and support which we really feel. Your prayers are the power supply that feeds this ministry

Update from the Uganda Team

Romans 10:13-15 (KJV) 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

We met today with some leaders in the community. Seven of them were Muslims this included the president/mayor of the village. The team all shared their personal testimonies along with a clear presentation of the Gospel. All the Muslims accepted the Lord for which there is a major cost. It’s the first seven guys from left to right.

Psalms 1:1-3 (ESV) 1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

Carol, Debbie and Levenia met for fellowship with the ladies of the church. Carol shared from Psalm 1 about not walking in the counsel of the ungodly. Many of the ladies repented, saying they are Christians and living sinful lives but now God has “pinched” them and they have repented!

Please pray for these new believers to grow in the Lord. They are likely to face pretty intense persecution. Pray for the hearts of the ladies to make a lasting change and glorify God in all they do and say. Also pray for continued health for the team. Everyone is doing great and feeling good!

Thank you all for praying. We can really feel your prayers so don’t stop.

Update from Uganda Team

We appreciate all the prayers. We had another great time visiting our son’s church this morning. We had sweet worship in both English and the native language. Pastor Abraham taught the word. Around 34 people were baptized after the service It is so glorious to see these new Christians being baptized in a little tiny blow up pool in there full dresses. They don’t even like water and are actually afraid of it going in their face, but they want to live for Jesus and proclaim what He has done for them.. Debbie and I will be meeting with the women tomorrow for a time in the word. Please continue to pray. God is answering the prayers of His Saints.

Love,
Carol
