Floods in Uganda

Floods in Uganda

Hi Friends,

Praying for you and your families! Today I visited the flood affected areas in Butaleja village together with the Faith Radio team.

The floods have cut off a major road leading to Mbale town and hence limiting movement and transportation. Also many cereal crops have been destroyed which can lead to famine.

Some families have been displaced by the floods. It continues to rain here day and night.
Please pray for the families affected and also our Faith Radio activities as the heavy rains are slowing down our activities. Tomorrow we shall be visiting an area up in the mountains called Bududa.

This area has been affected by mudslides and has claimed many lives. We shall be embarking on an outreach program to provide food and clothing to the families affected by mudslides and floods in these areas.
Attached are photos from the flood affected areas

In Christ,

Faith Radio Prayer Requests

Faith Radio Prayer Requests

We greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers for them ministry of Faith Radio Uganda! We are praying for you all.

We just concluded our monthly management meeting discussed issues pertaining listener growth and development. Most importantly focusing on how we can reach more areas with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please do pray for the increase of our listening base.

We recently installed cable TV to the Faith Radio Uganda offices, so now our news reporters can keep current with local and international news. We are also able to play Christian Television direct audio to the radio station.

Please continue to pray for little Joyce, one of our staff member’s child, she is just recovering from acute pneumonia. We the staff at Faith Radio have been standing with this family at this tough time and we thank God for answered prayer.

Heavy rains have made marketing and community outreach programs impossible because of the extreme flooding. The heavy rains have cut off major roads and the main highway to Kampala our capital, where we do most of our marketing, has often been cut off by large fallen trees causing long delays on the highway and many accidents.

Please pray for the safety of the communities in Uganda as heavy rains have caused mudslides and flooding, which have cause loss of lives while destroying food crops which can cause famine.

Heavy rains have also caused an outbreak of cholera in parts of Kampala. Please pray for the people living in these areas also.

We need to repair and increase the sound proofing of the studio as well as install new carpet replace the old and damaged furniture. We need about $1,500 to revamp of the radio station. Please consider helping us with this special need.

The Uganda electricity Board visited our radio station to check on our maintenance routine of the electrical wiring and status in the building. They require us to have new electrical wiring as the building is very old and some of the wiring is exposed, which is prone to electric shocks and fires. We do not have a budget as yet, but ask that you pray for this need as well.

Prayer Requests:

  • Safety during these heavy rain season in Uganda
  • The funding for our monthly budget ($4,200)
  • Orphanage kids monthly budget
  • For me and Sharon to as we work together in ministry
  • For my parents health, Dad’s blood pressure is high again
  • For safety of all Faith Radio staff
  • Faith Radio advertising marketing efforts

We encourage committed monthly supporters for Faith Radio Uganda. We also encourage you to engage in mission trips to Uganda to visit the ministries which you are part of.

May GOD continue to bless you all abundantly.

GOD bless you,
