So Much To Be Thankful For
O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.
The secondary girls are studying Psalm 107 in evening devotions this week. We have so much to thank God for!
We are excited to have an official membership roll! We started signing Sunday and will keep it open to sign up for the next couple weeks.
Construction has begun on the church building for the church plant in Ndegeya. George William also received a call from the mother of a student requesting someone to go to preach to a group of believers in another village. There used to be a church there, but there hasn’t been an official church or pastor there for several years. He went to visit,
and he took one of our S3 students who is known to the people there. They were amazed at how much he has grown and what an incredible preacher he has become. George William and George have been meeting with them early on Sunday mornings, then going to the church in Ndegeya for the services there. Please pray that God will give us wisdom to know how to progress with rebuilding the church in Kalisizo, and that He will provide a more permanent pastor. Please also continue praying for the church plants in Ndegeya and Luwengo.
Our ladies are coming to the end of our first Bible study. It’s been an exciting time growing closer to each other as we grow closer to the Lord. We’re looking forward to more learning and more growth!
Our P7, S4, and S6 students are getting close to their major tests that they’ve been diligently preparing for all year. Please pray for the students as they take their various exams during the months of October and November. Please then continue to pray for the grading of the exams as exams from all over the country are graded by hand. Pray that no tests get lost during transport, and pray for the integrity of the people grading the exams.
We had another jjajja (elderly gradparent/widow) that fell and broke her hip. We’re unsure of her exact age, but she’s likely in her upper 90s. We didn’t find out about it for several days. She was also sick with malaria, so she was very weak by the time we got her to the hospital. She has recovered as much as possible, and is doing well considering, even able to move around. Another jjajja that broke his hip who is not far behind in age is now walking with crutches. We had found a wheelchair for him, but one Sunday he showed up to church with the crutches. He had felt better that morning and started walking to church (about a 1-1/2 mile walk). Fortunately a friend of his passed by in a truck and gave him a ride. Please continue to pray for our jjajjas.
Alexandria was extremely excited a few weeks ago when four children got saved in Sunday school! Hallelujah!
We’ve been praying that God would provide a couple to fill in for us while we’re on furlough next year. We’re thankful to be able to say He has provided a young couple from our church! Please praise God with us, and pray for Clay and Priscilla as they prepare to come in March.
Thank you again for continuing to support us through your prayers and generous gifts! May God richly bless you as you continue to serve and trust Him!
Please pray for God’s guidance in how to best help Emma and his jjajjas who take care of him. There aren’t many options here, but God can provide!
