It's been challenging but very encouraging time here. We arrived and commenced a week of gospel meetings in the small assembly just outside Kampala, doors/street evangelism during the day and speaking in the evening. I was challenged especially by 2 young ladies in the assembly. One girl had a new baby wrapped on her back and was out 3 full days reaching her neighbours, another girl recently saved who is married to a Muslim man and heavily pregnant was out almost 2 full days teaching the community. As a result of the hard work of the assembly and answered prayers each evening a good number came in and some responded to the Gospel and we thank the Lord.
Sunday past we travelled very early to an all girls school to speak at their leavers assembly, approx 500-600, great opportunity for the gospel, we returned back to the assembly for the final message and baptism. 9 had requested baptism over the last 3-5 months. What was lovely, after the gospel message 2 of those that attended for the first time professed faith in Christ and as we moved out to the tank and shared a short message on baptism they heard, understood and asked Allan to be baptised and I had the privilege to see these 2 baptised the same day.
Today was a very exciting day, as you may know we shipped the old Ayrshire Bible exhibition out to Uganda and it arrived safely in May. Today we went to St Marks college, Namagoma, Central Uganda. This school has around 1900 pupils (teens) The school were honoured to host the first ever Bible exhibition in Uganda. Every teen received a copy of Johns Gospel. The excitement of the pupils can't really be described. There is a very strong Pentecostal influence in Uganda so these kids have many questions. We saw around 450-500 pupils today, I fly home tomorrow but the school have invited us back which is great. There certainly is potential for the Exhibition to be used for many years to come and reach many kids in many schools. Thank you all for your prayers, please continue to prayer for Uganda. May God be glorified.
