A Word from Pastor (Papa) George

Africa – Uganda Update – March 19, 2020

Post from Kennedy, our central Uganda coordinator.      

  “Yesterday the government stop
ped all church services and outdoor gatherings in Uganda for 32 days
So no open air crusades for 32 days. So We are shifting the fishing method. We will do 32 days of door to door evangelism and giving out leaflets talking about eternal life. We can all print them out and distribute them for the people to read wherever we will preach in these 32 days. I just left office with my printed documents for photocopy,i meet some men and began teaching them through it. Two of them have received Jesus and promised to go to victory city church for Sunday services. I gave them David’s number. Now I have to go back to office to print other copies for photocopying.”
“From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.” (Mt 11:12)
 
“On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.” (Acts 8:1, 4)

Africa outreaches – March 20, 2020

     We are so blessed and encouraged to share the testimony that our coordinators in central Africa organized 31 outreaches in February and 1,450 new believers were ushered into the kingdom. Wayne and I were blessed to be with the coordinators from Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, Burundi and the DRCongo on March 9th in Kampala, Uganda. We were blessed with testimonies of God’s faithfulness and were able to give them water filters and 260 solar-powered audio bibles in 14 different languages. Later, we visited our coordinator in north Kenya before driving back to Uganda.

     Since our return on March 16th, Kenya and Uganda both implemented controls to minimize the impact of the corona virus. We were blessed to receive this response from Kennedy, our central Uganda outreach coordinator, and encouraged how quickly he adjusted to the circumstances and to maintain the mission of the church.

Africa – Archer’s Post, Samburu, Kenya – March 14, 2020

     We finally took off from Kampala, Uganda to Samburu in the northern part of Kenya. We were blessed to have Pr. Simon, our north Kenya coordinator, travel with us. After we got through immigration at the Kenya border we were met by Pr. Titus, our east Uganda coordinator, who had traveled home from the conference to get his wife and child so he could bring them to meet us. We traveled to Nakuru and spent the night and arrived in Samburu in northern Kenya the next afternoon. Great sharing about the future needs of the ministry as we pray, share the love of Jesus and expand His Kingdom. Along the way we saw baboons, gazelles, rhinos and shared the road with a herd of camels. We were greeted by Rose, Simon’s wife and children then enjoyed a wonderful meal she had prepared for us. This was Wayne’s first time to visit the family and the home in Kenya so he had bought both Rose and the kids some ‘sweet’ gifts. Tomorrow we will be visiting a local church then visiting a tribe out in the bush that live in clusters of minatas, small round mud and stick homes, that are clustered together for protection.
