WRAP UP OF THE KAMPALA UGANDA MISSION

Kampala UGANDA The news... "God is Good." The Lord moved powerfully in Uganda touching lives. We saw hundreds crowd into packed altars in the schools, church, and on the street. Most asking Christ in their hearts. Some prayed to be set free from drugs. as God confirmed his promise of freedom. So many that came were praying for God to set them free from their addictions and restore them to their families. PIX ALBUM sp

Our first priority here was to build the relationship with Fresh Start Recovery Center, train staff, and launch a choir for them as they considered moving from affiliation to formal relationship with GTC. In the midst of the business of ministry, the Lord sent His power. Darryl Woodson, director (and pastor of Victory City Church in Kampala) set up a series of meetings in schools, on the street, and in churches
The streets are clogged with kids-- many abandoned, This sign on a wall says it all! STREET CHILDREN ARE CHILDREN TOO ... Street Children, whose responsibility? The churches are full of young people, but with a median age of 15, that is no surprise. Reaching these young people on the streets or in the schools is extremely important. We need to reach them before they need the program. We could never create enough beds! We are so grateful that you have sent us and stood with us in prayer for the hundreds that are coming to Christ. Over 250 came to Christ in one boarding school meeting. A local church has the commitment of the headmaster to allow them to come to start cell groups and follow up with them in the school.

The United Nations has determined that the number one cause of poverty in Uganda is alcohol abuse. In every slum we visited, we saw the alcohol distillery in the center of the town. The money that fathers should be using for school fees goes for "lira lira" (booze). The kids that should be in school wander the streets or monitor the brewing process while "the old man" drinks The little girl on the left is a courier who walks through the sewers to deliver the "white lightning" to the old men.

We were cared for wonderfully by Darrell Woodson and the team here in Kampala. We stayed in a guest house called Maria's place and were quite comfortable The weather has been nice. The food has been a lot of fun. I still have not had a monkey gland rump steak, perhaps next week in Kenya. We are excited about the staff and students here in Uganda. I believe they will be important partners in the Africa Strategy.

Kenya Center
We are excited about the opportunity to minister with Kenya Teen Challenge. Pray for safe travel and anointing as well as favor with the Airline as they are trying to limit our baggage to one bag. Mike has one extra bag with books and teaching materials and I have 2 suitcases with sound equipment for the Kenya choir.

PRAYER

FOCUS

1) Pray for the hundreds of young people who made commitments to Christ in meetings here in Uganda.We are believing for lasting fruit Also, Fresh Start Recovery Center and their new choir. Please remember them as they are developing a new property for a men's and women's home outside of Kampala. Following discussion for them to join the Global Teen Challenge Family we are wrapping up final details to consummate the transition.
2) Pray for a safe flight and the upcoming ministry in Kenya. We are looking forward to the Kenya open house, ministry at the Assemblies of God General Council, services and outreach from August 19-28.
3) Pray for workers for the Harvest ... we currently have invitations to start Teen Challenge in 43 nations. They are crying out for help. They need the power of God to meet a pressing social need.
We offer SPIRITUAL RESOURCES to meet the need.
MATTHEW 37-3 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.  38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

May we never forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
