Butalejja End of Year Mission
The CMM team for the last 9 years has been spending the last 4 days of the year and the New Year’s Eve at Butalejja holding what we refer to as “End of year mega missions”.
A team of 33 people from 8 different churched headed by Florence Wanaswa and the CMM leadership team took part in this. Below is the report of the 2018 Butalejja Mega Mission.
1. Open Air gospel meetings.
With 5 different preachers from amongst the team, we held 5 open air gospel meetings on the district Boma playground.
Around 3500people attended and 275 came to Christ. WE GIVE ALL THE GLORY TO JESUS
The entire team was divided into different departments among which included; praise and worship, counselling, ushers, etc
2. The Prisons’ Ministry
We visited Butalejja prison as we’ve always done every end of year.
Our prison visit goals are to share the gospel with the inmates, to pray with and council individuals conduct praise and worship session to share a meal that CMM sponsors with all inmates and prison wardens.
We ministered to 62 people, 58 prisoners and 4 prison wardens. Out of the 58, one was a lady.
17 gave their lives to Christ for the first time of whom 4 were Muslims. 21 prisoners renewed their faith in Christ.
We give all the glory to Jesus.
Below are CMM members baptizing new converts who came to Christ in the course of the mission week from the different ministries we held.
We baptised 12 people and some were filled with the Holy spirit.
4. Children’s Ministry.
Racheal and other CMM members had a good time with the children sharing bible stories, sharing some drinks & snacks, shading and praise & worship
The CMM soccer team versus the Butalejja community soccer team was another social and very attractive event that aims at bringing together many locals from the nearby community.
This time, the CMM team scored 1 goal and the Butalejja community team scored 3 goals.
6. Church visits
Meeting the CMM sponsored children
As CMM, we decided to always meet with the CMM sponsored children every quota, share with them about the word of God, among other things. This is when we take time to have the kids write to their sponsors, take pictures of them, and collect their end of term school reports all of which we use to generate a children’s report.
On December 14th, the CMM team gathered with the sponsored kids who took part in lots of activities.
