USA – The harvest fields of Africa, April 8, 2019
We are thankful that many of you have had the opportunity to meet Pr. Martin Ochieng, who over-sees the Harvest Vision coordinators in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, Burundi, Rwanda and the DRCongo. Many of you have given him encouragement and even now pray for him and the labor of love the Lord has given unto him. These men and women have devoted themselves to reaching the lost in their areas in cooperation with existing church families, regardless of denomination, so these new believers can be taught to be true disciples of Jesus Christ by pastors and leaders that are given the biblical training to be true shepherds. We have a team from Washington that will be traveling to Uganda in mid-may to meet with Pr. Martin and all the coordinator’s. This is a great sacrifice for them, but they have testified about how much they are encouraged by sharing with one another and how they benefit by learning new ways in which they can be better equipped to meet the ongoing challenges of leading evangelism, church planting, discipleship and training pastors and leaders. They also have the opportunity to share their own challenges of caring for their own basic needs and the needs of their families. It was suggested that we present a list of the needs that we are currently in need of for the meeting and to support the ministry in the immediate future. Pr. Martin and these coordinators have expressed to us their greatest need is to reach the lost and these are the items they are asking for at the present time.
$1,700 to finish a 7 year farming project that will provide funding to maintain existing equipment;
$3,700 for the costs of the actual conference;
$200 for Burundi vehicle repair;
$540 for heavy duty backpacks for the coordinators;
$900 for speakers and speaker repairs;
$860 for projectors and replacement lamps;
$850 for laptops and phones;
$450 for tents, sleeping bags, mattresses and torches (flashlights) and
$630 for 15 microphones and cords.
