We were not able to go to Uganda last year (2017) through lack of funds, this surprised us as we had not missed a trip since 1997. So being faith filled Christians we took it to prayer and God gave us a number of reasons He had for us not to go. However just before Christmas a Lady phoned and said”I understand that you did not go to Uganda this year but God has told me to give you the fare to go next year” Glory Hallelujah.
The timing was great and we were able to get tickets at quite reasonable prices in the January sales, then we had to stay in faith for the expenses needed for the mission, needless to say as the mission date got closer we were blessed with 4 different donations which covered all the expenses. –Brilliant. Where God Guides He Provides. He is Jehovah Jireh our provider.
This trip was amazing, we had 3 Ladies with us, Luana, Ellie and Gugu. together they are “Lifestream” an acapella worship team. When they ministered at most of the meetings and sessions we had, Heaven came down and everyone was touched with the tangible presence of God. Interestingly enough Luana had wanted to come with us in 2017 when we could not go but at the same time the other 2 girls could not make it, He He, God has a plan always. We traveled all over Uganda and held at least 40 sessions of preaching /Teaching. The Power of God was ever present to Heal and many were healed of various maladies and diseases, Broken bones were nit together, eyes were healed, hearing restored and bodies had complete overhaul.
What I loved was that at nearly every meeting we had, at no matter what location it was held, people would come into the meeting saying that they wanted to give their lives to Jesus and as we led them in a prayer of salvation healing always followed. –excellent The women’s conference headed up by Rose was the best yet, but I will let her tell you all about it
The annual Crawley A.I.M. Charity 6 and 12hr Race organised by our ‘trusty trustee’ Pam Storey is taking place as usual at the K2 Sports facility in April – this year also with a 24hr race. Both the 24hr & the 12hr are now fully booked with others waiting – Still places on the 6hr though if you’re interested. Over 80 runners so far… They must be MAD if you ask me… ‘Making A Difference’ – we are so grateful. Thank you.
Note: the event has taken place and we are now waiting to see what the final donation is. A big thank you to all those who took part, without your efforts we could do what we do.
It used to be just 2 terms in office until the law was changed a few years ago to allow the president to remain for 3, now it seems that it has been changed again from a retirement age of 75, to life, meaning that he can now remain until he dies. We understand that the 400+ members of parliament received very large sums of money to bring this about and have also had their terms of office extended from 5 to 7 years between elections, so there will therefore be no more elections until 2023. The rich get richer & the poor are getting poorer.
It started with just a plot of wasteland in the year 2000… Now see the amazing things that are there… We are amazed…
Our main concern for the Schools has been to have water freely available and also power to provide lighting etc.
This year 2013 and in the last month we have finally achieved that goal
The finding of water was a major breakthrough and no mean feat as we had to dig through the hill down to 58 metres through a lot of rock.
For electricity we had to set up 9 electricity poles over roughly a quarter of a mile on neighbouring plots (with the neighbours permission of course).But now they will be able to access electricity for themselves via our poles,something which would have been impossible for them before we came.
All This has created a big interest in the area and many people are buying up the land around or renting plots to build on.
in the future we plan to pipe the water from the borehole into all the buildings and to put in outside standpipes and have the water pumped by electricity.
