Despite all the restrictions that have been put in place, on top of all difficulties associated with climate and roads, the pastors have continued to serve the communities and recovery groups.
Uganda – Pastor Stephen
The groups in Sironko, Uganda, shepherded by Pastor Stephen, have stepped out to construct a church building.
In Tororo there is growth not only of the Recovery groups, but also
among the rabbits in one of their group projects, which are being bred as a source of meat and finance.
Kenya – Pastor Johnstone
Pastor Johnstone has been visiting a local prison over a number of years, teaching the Recovery program and preaching the gospel. There has been some resistance to his teaching by the prison Chaplain, which prevented my joining him on my last visit.
He meets prison inmates both individually and in small groups, and reports that there is a thirst and hunger for God’s word; it is hoped to send funds shortly to purchase Bibles, which cost about the equivalent of £7.00 each.
Zambia – Pastor Lackson
Pastor Lackson Chipeta and his team have been active in Zambia, and report that “the project is going very well indeed, with 120 people having given their lives to Jesus Christ”.
Bible study groups have formed, and they are training 15 Recovery groups.
May the Name of the Lord be glorified.
May he show mercy to all those who seek His blessing, and give strength to His faithful servants, who work so tirelessly snatching souls from the pit of addiction.
