We rejoice with Kathy, Christine, Debbie, Thomas, and Jason as they had such a productive trip to Uganda! Each day was packed with meetings and important conversations with local leaders. They have labored faithfully for the Lord on behalf of the Session and the congregation, and we thank them sincerely for their gifts of time and energy. Continue to pray for them as they make the return trip home, and please pray especially that they are able to rest well–mentally, physically, and emotionally–after their journey.
The doors to the Christian Discipleship Resource Center are now open in Uganda! Entrust training and Third Millennium resources are just the beginning! Please pray for the newly established Governing Board to communicate well in this next season of planning. The Lord has so faithfully shown His favor on strategic partnerships in the Sheema community. Government officials, leaders of Ankole Western University, the women’s Entrust group, and the Bishop of the West Ankole Diocese are all heavily invested in the future of this ministry. These brothers and sisters have astounding faith and zeal for the Lord. Please pray for them as they serve their community and make disciples to the nations!
Redeemer’s Missions Committee has so much to share about the work the Lord has been doing over the past few years as this Resource Center building has become a reality. From late-night conversations around a meeting table in Charleston to clapping and dancing in the red dirt of Uganda, our Shepherd has led wandering thoughts and weary feet each step of the way. His care for Redeemer and for our friends in Uganda is remarkable. As the ministry of this building takes shape in the coming months, continue to pray for the Father’s guiding hand to rule over its administration. Pray for wisdom for the Missions Committee and for the Session when they are in communication with Ugandan leaders. Pray also for the hearts and minds of the congregation at Redeemer to share in the joy of such an intricately beautiful project. There are many avenues for strategic partnerships going forward–and plenty of room for new ideas and resources. Have you considered joining the next trip to Uganda?
