On The Way Home

I am sitting at the gate for our flight home from Uganda.  We have had a great experience and a very effective ministry to others.   Over all we presented the gospel to 8,258 students and saw 927 make first time decisions for Christ.   We also saw many believers re dedicate their lives to Christ.  We did 18 assemblies in 16 schools.   We visited and helped two orphanages.   Keep us in your prayers as we travel home over the next 30 hours.

Our First Week in Uganda

This last week our team of 17 shared Christ with over 3000 students in 7 high schools and saw over 220 make first time decisions for Christ!  We spoke in our eighth school this morning where 394 heard the gospel and 47 received Christ.  Pray for the additional seven schools we speak at the rest of this second week including one that has 4000 students!  Our team is all doing well but are tired today since we had to leave at 6 am this morning to get to our 7 am assembly.

It is time! Uganda here we come!

Tomorrow morning (Thursday, June 12) I leave for our team's briefing in Chicago.  We will have all but two of our team members there.  Saki, from Japan, is flying directly to Uganda and we will meet her there. Ashcon is graduating this weekend from college and will join us two days late.  Our schedule has come together, funds have been raised (although a few of us, including me, still need to see some more come in while we are gone), students have developed outreach and discipleship skills (and will develop a lot more in the days ahead), parents have and are praying, African staff have worked hard and already seen God open some critical new doors for them and our team, and many other things have and are coming together for our time in Uganda.  Keep praying and check back here for updates on our team!
