Dan Muwanguzi’s Teaching the Bible in Mukono

Update on the Church Based Training in Biblical Studies (C-TBS) – in Mukono DC Church

We do have a very impressive class of 19 people all together. This includes the senior Pastor of that Church and key leaders of different ministries. They come from 3 different churches but mostly from Mukono DC.

This church is involved in many different types of Ministries and outreaches in the Mukono community and the nearby areas. The church is so much committed to studying the word and prayer. Deliverance church is one of the Churches in Uganda that has for a long time maintained a very good reputation, building their ministry on team work, Godliness and with a strong emphasis on the “Word of God”.

Our role as C-TBS is to be part of what the Lord is doing in Mukono and the nearby areas as we influence those key ministry leaders through the Bible training course.

We do have a very good and enthusiastic bunch of participants. They are faster in learning the Bible study principles.

We are also learning a lot from them as we conduct this course.

The Pastor, “FRED SSALI” has been so supportive and has encouraged us a lot with his praises for this course.We thank the Lord that he has given us the leaders in his church to be in our class this year and we look forward to more excitement, learning and hearing from the Lord as we continue.

Since we started, Andrew Kiwanuka and my self have been the main facilitators, Andrew is the Director for the SBS in YWAM Uganda and we always work together in both programs. The assistant Pastor Peter Sekatawa is a former SBS Student. He was one of our students some time back, now he is the assistant pastor in the DC church and an overseer of other sister churches. Peter is a very good Bible teacher and he is part of our current teaching team in this school.

We are so grateful to the Lord for the prayers, encouragement and financial help that enables us to keep this and other Christian Model Ministry programs running smoothly.

Princess is Born to Dan and Miriam

Greetings Friends,
As many of you might know, Dan and Miriam had a new little girl, Princess on January 2nd 2013. She is now 1 month and 3 weeks old, and is gaining some weight and sleeping through the night, to the delight of Miriam.
The birth was complicated as Miriam had Malaria, and so had extended hospital stay with intravenous drugs. She also had a cesarean, but now Miriam is doing well and regaining her strength.
This winter was a trying time for Dan and his family, especially as Dan had a significant ministry crusade to lead and run. But God has been gracious, and now they have a fourth addition to their family, the sweet like Princess.

Little Princess, a very welcome addition to the Muwanguzi household.

The boys are very happy to have a new little sister. I got to hear Princess’ little cries on a recent Skype chat with Dan in Uganda.

Please pray for Dan and his family, as these are busy times for them as Dan continues to pursue God’s calling to minister in Uganda and East Africa..

Dan Returns to Uganda

I am happy to report that Dan Muwanguzi has safely returned to Uganda, after a flight from Victoria to Vancouver, then to Heathrow London where he stayed for 23 hours, and then to Kompala Uganda.

Here we're saying goodbye to Dan at Victoria BC airport, before his sojourn back to Uganda.

Dan’s family missed him dearly as he was away in Victoria BC for 7 weeks. That’s a very long time when you have a young family, but his work in Victoria was very important for establishing connections and building momentum for his new ministry Christian Model Ministries.

Upon returning to Uganda, Dan has connected with family and friends, and updated his church Searchlight of God of his Victoria trip and next plans.

Dan is happy to be home, but life in Uganda can be really challenging. Jonathan, Dan’s 10 year old son has Malaria, which was medically dealt with and Jonathan is better. And now, his wife Miriam has Malaria too, when she’s almost ready to give birth. This is very worrisome and hard on the family both emotionally and financially.

Beyond family matters, Dan does make the rounds to very poor families in need, handing out gifts and supplies brought back with him from Canada.

Also, now that Dan is back in Uganda, he starts working with his local church called The Searchlight of God church, in Kompala Uganda. Dan is an elder in the church, and he helps with preaching, teaching, and planning.

One thing to plan is what Dan calls a “Mega Crusade”. This is a teaching and evangelism campaign where Dan and other leaders and 200 ministers from their local district teach and pray together in the mornings and do mission work and evangelism to local school, hospitals, and jails. This happens from December 28th to the 31st, and then New Years Eve everyone stays up all night singing, worshiping, praying, celebrating and dedicating the New Year to God.

Dan is very excited about this Mega Crusade and we’ll be pleased to provide the update on this website … stay tuned.

A new room, building an office for Christian Model Ministries on the side of Dan's house. This will provide a base of operations and for planning and administrative support.

One last thing to mention, at a branch congregation for Searchlight of God church in Uganda, Dan teaches Sunday school. At this local church many very poor Ugandans come to worship. A young boy named Douglas attends the church, and Dan has become very close with Douglas. Unfortunately, Douglas is blind and his father has disowned him. Douglas is the only child in his family that attends church and Douglas only form of education is at his church. Douglas does not attend elementary school.

Support for Christian Model Ministries enables Dan and his team to sponsor children to get education, sponsor unemployed youth and women get vocational skills, and sponsor Christian pastors to get much needed Scripture teaching and training so they can be more effective in their Christian duties.

Prayer Requests:

  1. Pray for Dan’s pregnant wife Miriam dealing with Malaria and delivering with C-Section soon.
  2. Pray for Douglas and his family situation and that God will provide support for Douglas and impoverished children like him.
  3. Pray for the Mega Crusade and that this effort will be well coordinated, Spirit empowered, guided, and impactful.

Thank you for reading this post and we appreciate your interest and support in Dan, Uganda, and Christian Model Ministries.
