Dear Friends,

I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers and support for me, my family and ministry.

I pray for you and your families – for good health, provision and grace.

We praise God for the visiting Vanguard University ministry team now serving with us in Uganda.

They have all been impacted by this trip and I trust they will bring a testimony back home to their friends and families as to how God worked through them in such a mighty way to serve so many for Christ.

They visited the orphanage to give the children school supplies, taught some classes and helped serve breakfast. The kids loved it!

They also visited the Mbale Regional Hospital through the Faith Radio monthly Outreach program. They prayed for the sick and the new born babies in the maternity ward. The team was moved to tears to see the bad conditions of patients, new born babies becoming orphans at birth. Things they don’t see in the hospitals in the United States.

It was a great time of ministry, praying for the sick and encouraging those who are suffering by bringing Jesus to the hurting.

The team also did a School Outreach; visiting local schools in Mbale to share Jesus through teaching them American Christian Songs and sharing God’s word.

The team also taught the sermon at the Mid-week church service at Impact Ministries mother church.

The team also visited one Impact’s village churches in Kachonga, located right next to a mosque.

The team also visited the Remand Home, a Juvenile Correctional Center for Juvenile inmates. They were able to bring Jesus to these kids and remind them that life does not end in the prisons, there is always hope in Jesus!

In the process of teaching and sharing by the team 31 Juvenile inmates gave their lives to Christ. Praise God!

The team also visited the slums of Mbale where they were moved by the abject poverty and hopelessness. They walking in Jesus’ foot-steps, going to the broken hearted and bringing hope to the slums through prayer and encouragement

Over the weekend the team held a Children’s Sports Camp. The children played soccer and learned different American sports, which turned out to be a great way to share Jesus through sports. They also had a volley ball match between Vanguard University and Impact School Uganda. At the end of the day there was a trophy presented for the winning boys and girls team.

On Sunday the Vanguard team led the worship service at Impact Church. They brought the sermon, lead the Sunday school for the kids and also the youth service.

The team also had a chance to be hosted on Faith Radio Uganda, where they shared on the youth talk show and prayed for the youth in Uganda.

The team also taught pastors at an Assemblies of God Pastors Conference at a nearby local village. They taught on Faith, Integrity and Trust. It was great to see these young men and women used by God to train the Pastors of the local churches and to see pastors of different denominations come together to be part of the training. The team planted a tree as a symbol of unity for the local churches in that village.

The team also found out the need for Bibles and reading glasses in the village churches. Most pastors and elders do not have Bibles, they also have eye sight problems of the elderly and need reading glasses.

The Vanguard team is now preparing to return to home to the United States and they will have a Children’s farewell party tomorrow at the orphanage. They have truly been a blessing to us!

Please pray for their safe return and that many other of our ministry partners will come and visit us also.

We encourage you to come to Uganda to serve those in need of the Loving touch of Jesus!
