They Love Pictures

January 28, 2008

I got a package today from my mother and one of the items inside was a card with a bunch of pictures that were taken of my family at Christmas time. I immediately began showing all of the staff in the office then proceeded to our Home of Love Orphanage to share them with the children there. They loved them. I took a nice picture of a bunch of the children sitting around looking them over. They literally took about 5 minutes per picture. They pointed at every item in them. Each candle in my living room, the couches, my families clothes. They especially loved repeating my family members names after me. They got stuck most on my cousin Ariel.

Please continue to pray for these children as they will start school again soon. Pray that they would stay healthy and that God would continue to raise them up as young men and women of Him.

Pneumonia

January 17, 2008

Well it has been a long time since my last entry. Sorry to keep you all in so much suspense!! haha. I have been in Kampala for the last 11 days. I went down to visit friends and get some medical attention. I was diagnosed with severe pneumonia which I treated while down in Kampala. I am now back up in Gulu and on the mend. Having pneumonia here is difficult because it could flare back up again if I am not careful. So I have been resting and taking it easy for a few days. I hope to be back in full swing soon!

-Please pray for my health and that God would heal me completely and quickly.
-Pray for the ACTION team here. We are all getting along so well and are excited at what God is doing here in Gulu.

I have had the opportunity to start a new ministry while here. Ministering to the youth at various secondary schools around Gulu. There are many and we are now in developmental stages on how to approach this ministry. Dominic Idro, an Acholi ACTION worker, is helping with this ministry as well. Also there are a few others that will be working with me in this ministry. The headmasters at these schools told us that they want the children to have time daily for bible studies, evangelism, worship etc. So we are taking the opportunity to see this happen by God’s grace. We will be implementing the Holland Congregational Church discipleship booklets to mentor and raise up the student leaders that God gives us to work with at these various schools. We will be training a team of children to perform drama’s at these schools, have a time of worship and prayer, preaching, evangelism and outreach, and bible studies. We here at ACTION Gulu are excited at this new opportunity that God has given us to reach out to this generation. The name for this is Youth for Truth. God gave me the name as I was praying over this ministry.

Please pray that God would provide finances for this ministry, student leaders who we can disciple and raise up to work with their peers, endurance and strength as we minister on the school grounds, and for the gospel to spread among this area!

 I praise God for those of you who support me. I am so grateful and blessed to know each and every one of you.
