November 2022

We greet you all our dear friends and thank you for your partnership with Christian Model Ministries. Here is our November / December report

KOTIDO VISIT WITH DIVINE CARE MINISTRIES

We partnered with “Divine Care Ministries” to visit Kotido district. There was a lot of insecurity in the region due to cattle raiding but we thank God who kept us safe. We visited Lengeni Hospital where we talked to mothers with malnourished children.

Most of these women were coming from the recently raided villages where they had no access to food, water and other basic needs. Their homes, crops and food were destroyed by raiders. Most of them are widows because their husbands were killed during raids.

The next day, we preached to old men who have remained in the villages. Most of the young men have become warriors.
Another big challenge is that most of the children don’t go to school.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO MISSION

We visited Eastern DRC THE DISTRICT OF KISIMBIRI to do evangelism in that country. We arrived at midday and were welcomed by the Congolese team led by Pastor Nora. We checked in and went through the process of learning what was required of us to stay in Congo. We visited 5 detention centers where we met close to 200 prisoners. We gave each detention centers bibles and some to police officers. Many of the prisoners were facing hard crimes but we preached to them a message of hope and forgiveness. We had a special session with officers who also opened up to us their challenges. We realized that the residents in that particular area had run away from wars and instability in this region .We thank God who gave us the ability to reach to the friends and family in Congo.

We visited Katanga slums a Kampala city suburb which hosts close to 60,000 people. There is high crime rate in this region because its a slum housing drug addicts, prostitutes, thieves and a lot of lawlessness . Many souls came to Christ. We were led by Archbishop Dr. Steven Kazimba Mugalu the Archbishop of the Anglican church of Uganda.

We donated groceries, food and other essential Items to their care takers to help them with their lives for nutrition, hygiene and health items included maize flour, sugar, rice, beans, salt, bread, soap and basins. All the families that received the above items were so excited and very grateful. We also preached and taught them the word of God. Many gave their lives to Jesus.

POLICE MINISTRY

We visited 2 police stations four times where preached to 127 suspects in custody. During the visits, we were allowed to fellowship with them, preach the word of God and 89 persons gave their lives to Jesus during the ministry sessions. We thank God.

YOUTH MINISTRY

  We ministered to the youth in Mbarara city by organizing a seminar for them. We carried out counselling and preached to them the word of God. Other activities we did was bible quiz, played games and group discussions. They turned up in large numbers.

SCRIPTURE UNION VISIT

We were invited to fellowship with the scripture union at Matugga Hills School. We taught scripture union members the word of God and life skills of environment conservation and protection such as reuse of plastic bottles to make garbage/refuse collection bins. We carried out counselling, prayed for the students and donated bibles to them.

CHURCH BASED TRAINING IN BIBLICAL STUDIES (C-TBS)

Both the New Testament and the Old Testament classes are nearing the climax of their studies and each class has been sharing many encouraging testimonies in relation to their studies.

We have had many good testimonies coming from studying the Book of Joshua. Some of our students as we study the book, they too pullout passages from that book and share with their congregations during Bible Studies and Church services.

Most of the Testimonies have been to do with victories of Joshua and Israel amidst strong resistance, opposition and attacks from professional, numerous and strong nations that occupied the promised land.

The book of Joshua to many has been a call to engage more in spiritual warfare for our students and their church congregations and the Nation at Large.

Uganda is currently experiencing an economic crisis, the cost of living has doubled, prices of fuel and essential commodities going so high. School fees and maintaining kids in school is becoming a bigger challenge to many parents. It has been so good when our students look to all this from the Bible point of view, encourage themselves and their congregations to keep praying and trusting God.

We thank God so much that we have hope in such situations that look like crisis. We thank God for such an opportunity to be studying and teaching the word of God to the church.

Pastor Mayinja Charles teaching the Old Testament Class.

We thank God and you our friends for standing with us, encouraging and supporting us in the mission. Thank you so much, we pray that the Lord will continue to keep you all well and growing in HIM.

God bless

CHURCH BASED TRAINING IN BIBLICAL STUDIES (C-TBS)

The Old Testament class is studying the book of Deutronomy and The New Testament class is studying the book of Acts.

Most of our students are either pastors or ministers in different churches. The most outstanding testimony of recent is how the course has simplified their preaching and teaching work, and also brought more motivation in their famiy and personnal devotional programmes. Such and many other encouraging testimonies have been of much encouragement to me as i read them when checking the students work,mostly in the morning hours.( Dan Muwanguzi)

We are very grateful to the lord for such an opportunity to be able to minister to the churches and communities in Uganda.
