Uganda – Village Ministry

July 22, 2009

We just returned from village life in Eastern Uganda, where we focused on training pastors and church planters on The Gospel, Gospel Change, Community Development, and Contextualization. It was an one of the best cultural experiences I have had. Very African, very rural, very exciting. We had discussions about witch doctors, polygamy, famine, drinking—all very real issues for these pastors. The key guy we are working with, Bishop Wako, is a remarkable visionary from a small village in the area. He is seminary trained and loves his people. We were humbled to be teaching these 30 pastors and learned so much from them.

We also ministered to scores of kids. Our team loved them well, showed them Jesus, and taught them Bible stories. Tara shared the gospel at a school with about 300 kids. Justin preached at a church last Sunday, while J.D. and Jonathan preached elsehwere. Mary and Amy have been great with the kids. We are all learning so much. This has great partnership potential with ACL in adopting a pastor and working with orphans, kids, or community development.

We teach again today and tomorrow, but in the city of Kampala. Pray for me. My voice is weak and my throat is rough. Pray for deeper gospel experiences in our team. We are having them and want more. Pray for our ladies as they miniter to children this week at various churches.

Ever Grateful…

Jonathan
