Greetings to you. We thank God for your solidarity and support that is enabling us to hold the banner of Jesus Christ high through the ministries that the Lord has allowed us to serve Him in. His grace has continued to abound, and in moments of despair, He has been our source of strength and courage! We are reminded of the words of courage from Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
We thank God for the successful first term high school outreach where many students from the Muslim headed schools had opportunity to hear the gospel. We witnessed the hand of God working in the lives of students despite the opposing forces of evil; doors were opened for the preaching of the gospel that left more than ten students giving their lives to Christ.
Recently, we have seen God working through the following events:
JUNIOR SCRIPTURE UNION CONFERENCE
A four-day conference for children ages 7 to 15 years was held in May. This attracted the attendance of about 400 children who were taught the word of God and also able to participate in different sports activities. At the end of the conference, 50 children had given their lives to Christ! Many went back home with a passion to live as godly children who are able to memorize scriptures that was exhibited by their eagerness to recite biblical verses!
MEDICAL AND EVANGELICAL OUTREACH
We thank God for the increasing number of people being reached with medical care to the remote areas. A recent outreach brought many people to acknowledgement of the saving grace in Christ Jesus. Many patients; especially children and pregnant women, were treated for various diseases leading to decreased fatalities in the communities.

SOCCER OUTREACH MINISTRY
The Calvary soccer team has been an opportunity to share the gospel to the entire West Nile region. At a recent tournament, our team emerged the overall winner among the seven districts which left many people (the majority were Muslims) commenting about the discipline exhibited by the Calvary soccer team! The gospel was really preached through sportsmanship that was exhibited by the Calvary team. Even when injured by the other team’s kicking of the ball, the Calvary boys did not retaliate because they had been encouraged through God’s Word to do good to those who do bad to them!
We thank God for improved livelihood of the children in schools. The recent donation of school uniforms for the pupils put smiles on their faces. Many are encouraged to study hard because they are no longer sent home due to their inability to pay for their own uniform and school fees.
The completed three classroom block has enabled us to accommodate the growing number of school children. The increased children enrollment gives us an opportunity to impact more children for Christ. This will also greatly improve tuition collection for future sustainability of the school.
