Ministry Update

February 12, 2008

Dear Family and Friends,

Things are going so well here in Gulu. The leaders of the Youth For Truth Ministry are meeting weekly now to discuss plans on how to reach all of the schools in Gulu for Christ. We are holding another meeting tomorrow to discuss mobilizing student leaders in a few schools that we will minister to this month. We are excited at this opportunity to share Christ in these schools and let them know that there is hope, love and truth out there. Within the next two to three years we want to share the Gospel in all of the schools in Gulu. This includes elementary, Jr. High, Sr. High and University level schools. We believe God for big things! Please pray with us that this will happen for the Glory of God the Father!

We have written a brief statement of what this ministry is. “Youth For Truth” seeks to minister God’s word to students and conduct discipleship classes, address moral issues including HIV/AIDS and sexuality, Christian leadership development and video ministry with the students, especially Scripture Union.

As a part of this ministry we will be showing videos as a way to evangelize, train and equip these students. ACTION already has a PA system, mixing board, speakers, and a screen. We will use these materials to share Christ with these students. As most of you already know I graduated from College with a degree in Communication Studies. Part of my schooling dealt with videography, and video editing. I believe God had me learn these things to prepare me for this ministry. As I have this ability to do these things I am in need of a few items to help assist me in this endeavor. I have purchased a camera and editing software, which will be used to film and edit the movies, we will be creating. Along with the camera and software I still need a few more items. I am trusting God to supply $5000 dollars which would cover the expenses of the rest of the items. Along with using this in the schools to show the students I will be able to film a new updated documentary of ACTION Gulu, promo videos that will encourage short-term and long-term missionaries to come serve here in Gulu, and also to film each of our ministries individually and highlight their specific needs. This material is much needed and will be a huge blessing to this ministry. Would you please pray about being involved in this special project? I would ask that you consider partnering with us in this video ministry.

If you are able to give to this special project please send donations to Action International Ministries, PO Box 398, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043. Please add a note that specifies that it is a donation for the “Video Special Project.”

I am aware that there are so many ministries and things to donate to. I would greatly appreciate any help that you may be able to offer this ministry. Thank you so much.

Youth for Truth Seminar

February 2, 2008

I want to thank all of you who were praying today for the Youth for Truth seminar. We had a great turnout of over 250 people. There was preaching, singing, praying, eating, and of course futbol (soccer) to end the day. The leaders of this ministry were very encouraged at the response from the students and the student leaders. We are looking forward to working with them and with their schools in the months to come. We will now shift our focus to planning out how we will be most effective within the schools around Gulu. The leaders of Youth for Truth will meet this week where we will discuss schools to visit, write letters to headmasters and principles, and plan out how to implement the Holland Congregational Church discipleship material within the schools. We are also going to meet with several men who have since graduated from secondary school and are interested in becoming a leader of this ministry. We will meet with them individually and have them share their testimony and walk with Christ. Upon approval from our leaders we will then begin to disciple, mentor and train these chosen ones in good biblical truths allowing them to better serve Christ and the students within the schools.

We praise God for today and what He has done. Continue to pray with us here at ACTION that God would continue to raise up leaders who will be willing to serve within the schools and that God would raise up student leaders who will begin to implement solid biblical bible studies with their own peers at their schools.

Thank you for your prayer support of this ministry. The Lord bless you!

Youth for Truth

February 1, 2008

Well this weekend is going to be a good one!! I have started a new ministry here at ACTION reaching out to secondary schools. Together with four other men we are going forth and will begin ministering to the schools in the upcoming weeks.

Tomorrow, February 2, we will be having a “Youth For Truth” seminar. We sent out letters to over 50 pastors within the Gulu municipality and have even put an advertisement on one of the local radio stations. This past Monday I was on the radio at this station from 6:30am-7am. I had the opportunity to personally invite all secondary aged students around Gulu to this seminar. We put together a registration sheet so that we know their name, age, school they attend and the church they attend. We have received quite a few names already. We are really expecting a large gathering of both youth and pastors. I was looking through some of the registration sheets today and noticed that some of the churches that these students attend are not churches, but rather mosques. Students from the local mosque right down the street from ACTION are signing up to come to the seminar as well! Praise God. Believe me, they are most welcome because they will be able to hear the truth of the word of God on Saturday. Please pray with me that the students and pastors that attend will catch the vision that we here at ACTION have for this new ministry and that those who come who don’t know Christ will leave knowing the truth and trusting in Christ. Pray also that those who are saved will be encouraged through the seminar. This is a very important ministry and a first of its kind in Gulu.

Thank you for your prayers and support. I will post pictures from the seminar for you to see what God has done.
