This month has been another exciting opportunity to reach out and serve individuals and communities. We had various outreaches as mentioned below.
FOOD AND GROCERY SUPPLIES OUTREACH
Namugongo is found in Kiira Municipality, Wakiso District in Central Uganda. It is famous for the Uganda martyrs who were executed from that same place.
We always have various activities happening in Namugongo and its a fertile ground for evangelism. We hold children and young girls’ meetings where we teach them the word of God.
With the help of you our partners and co-workers we donated food stuffs and other home essential supplies to over 30 families which reside in this community. Some of the items that were given include; Corn flour, Beans, Sugar, Mattresses, Cooking Oil, Salt, Rice, Soap, Basins, Sanitary pads, Mosquito Nets, Shoes, Clothes, Sewing Machines, Bicycle, Blankets, Tooth Paste and Tooth Brushes, Bread.
KATANGA SLUM OUTREACH
We re-visited Katanga, the third biggest slum in Kampala. It’s located in Central Division between Mulago and Makerere hills. As a ministry, we picked interest in the crucial need of the community which is food as many families in slum areas went into a despair when the country went into total lockdown due to Covid’19. So most families here needed food. We delivered a consignment of cassava food donated by Kato Edward (a CMM member ) from his garden to help feed over 50 families. We also had a door to door evangelism ministry where we visited different homes to interact and pray with them.
PRISON / PRISON OUTREACH
KASESE- KATWE PRISON MISSION
Earlier this year, we visited this region and distributed bibles in all the prisons. This month we revisited the area, having 6 prisons has the highest number of prisons in the whole country. We were not allowed to enter most of the prison centers due to the Covid’19 restrictions. However to a few where we were granted access we got in. At the time of visit, the facility had 168 prisoners without women. We handed over 50 mattresses to the prison administration . We preached the gospel and 76 prisoners gave their lives to Christ.
They were handed over to Pastors for discipleship. Racheal Kalembe trained women how to make reusable sanitary pads, personal care and hygiene.
SEETA POLICE STATION MINISTRY
The Officer in Charge of the police station allowed us to always visit . This month, we visited the station 4 times and shared the word of God. We preached to inmates and were even blessed to be joined by previous crime suspects of the same station who also shared their salvation testimonies and stories to fellow inmates. 28 persons gave their lives to Christ.
While in Kasese-Katwe region, we had a beautiful interaction time with the children were we prayed, sang songs and taught them the word of God. We also encouraged them to be obedient to their parents and care takers. We told them not to loose hope despite the long schools’ lockdown. They should stay safe, read their books, revise their school work and prepare to return to school once the lockdown has been lifted.
CHURCH BASED TRAINING IN BIBLICAL STUDIES (C-TBS)
The New Testament class is now studying the book of 2 Corinthians and the Old Testament is studying Judges.
Both classes continue to to be exciting as our students are always giving us encouraging feedback and interacting with them after the church lockdown has given us more motivation.
We pray that the Lord will continue to keep you well and bless you in all that you do.
Thank you so much for praying for us and for all the encouragement that you give us.
