Today we want to show you more photos and share more testimonies about the amazing things God is doing in and through this team in Uganda. Be blessed as you read!
The team went from Sudan to a small town called Paidha in Western Uganda, where they met
Pastor Sipi and his wife Mama Rose.
The pastor and his wife hosted the team while they were busy doing ministry in the town.
The team started off with doing open-air crusades where they
acted out skits,
and preached the Good News!
This man, Alfred, was in the crowd at one of the open-air crusades, and then started visiting the team at Pastor Sipi's house to ask questions and learn more about God. After several discussions, he decided to give his life to Christ! He is the first in his family of Muslims to become a follower of Christ.
Joam was given the honour to baptize Alfred, after which he was prayed for by Pastor Sipi and given a new name...Joshua. Please pray for this lovely man as he goes to his family in Congo to share with them the Good News!
These women were also at the open air. Gloria, one of the team's faithful translators, is on the far left with the crutches. The woman on the far right of the bench in the green shoes is Mama Rosalyn. She was lying uncovered in the bus park waiting to die. Her relatives chased her out of her home and then burned it because she has Epilepsy and they didn't want to care for her any longer. She hadn't eaten for five days and had just cried out to God to save her when we came along. She is now well fed, clothed and staying with the pastor and his family.
The team also spent three days in Paidha running a youth camp. There were over 150 children and many adults who came to learn and play. On the first day this dear girl, Makieve, walked up to Britnee and shyly asked her if she would be her friend. She was there at every event they held the entire week and would walk up to Britnee so she could hold her hand.
This precious girl also followed the team everywhere they went.
The team made lots of friends and were able to input into many people's lives.
Joe, Shadrach, Nick, Francis, Ben have a hug and a smile on the day they left Paidha.
Please continue to pray for their remaining weeks with us here in Arua. Another post coming next with stories of the team in Maracha seeing the lame healed, the blind see and the deaf speak!! Don't miss it!
