Dear beloved Friend and Partner,
I greet you all in the mighty name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
Our ministry outreach this last quarter has had a number of challenges registered prompted by the COVid-19 pandemic. A number of our training and outreach programs had been put on halt due to the lockdown and social distancing restrictions hindering the successful implementation of the programs. However, despite of this, we have registered great achievements especially in the last three months of the quarter. Most of our training programs have picked up, evangelistic results increased, scripture placement programs growing and above all home churches growing in number on a weekly basis as more communities are reached thanks to the new strategies employed in reaching and discipling the masses.
THE GOSPEL TRACT PROJECT.
A tract is a short, simple presentation of the gospel message, printed in convenient pocket size, designed for easy distribution and use. We have so far developed eight tracts in both English and Luganda the local language. This has become a very effective means of reaching and evangelizing communities. Many people have been led to Christ in this way. This month alone a total of 4221 adults were reached with the gospel with the hike in the number attributed to the use of gospel tracts given to individuals on streets, arcades and homes. After the distributions, the key opportunity employed is follow-up via phone calls or home visits to the homes of the prospect which has yielded a great fruit.
Shifra (not real names) is a mother of three living in the outskirts of Kampala city. Shifra was born and raised in a Christian and converted to Islam eloping to her Muslim boyfriend. She got an opportunity to hear the gospel after receiving a tract from Allen on of our ministry workers who was engaged in a follow-up outreach in the community we had previously visited. After reading the tract, Allen engaged Shifra in discussing the content of the gospel tract she had read which ended into the gospel being re-shared and Shifra recommitting her life to Christ. A few days after her conversion, Allen has taken on the task on discipling and mentoring her into a mature believer. Like Shifra, many other people’s lives in the communities are being turned around through the gospel tract ministry.
As you pray for the ministry, please endeavor to
- Pray for the ministry workers on ground. Pray that they will get ways of implementing the programs despite of the challenges on ground.
- Pray for the nation specifically targeting the threat of the wide spread of the Corona virus across the country. Pray for the central region which is hard hit. Also pray for peace through the elections.
Partners like you are the life blood for the mission work here and it’s because of your prayers, support and encouragement that we have had the courage and determination to keep keeping on. We are therefore grateful to God for you and the support you have given us that has kept us going and reaching different children and youth in the communities.
May Jesus therefore fill your barns with blessings and increase you in every area of your life.
