God is working in the life of Deus, who is forty-nine. He has four children, including Miracle, who is ten, Clinton is eight. Ritah is six, and Rihanna is four. They are residents of Katerampungu cell Bagangari praish. They survive by selling hard labor to others. Previously Deus had become a Christian in Toro, eastern Uganda. Unfortunately, he had family challenges and was separated from his wife. He came to Bungangari, Rukungiri. Away from the fellowship of other Christians and with the stress of family issues, Deus joined a group of drunkards. He started drinking alcohol and became a drunkard. We met Deus through home visits and shared the Word of God, and he expressed that he feels guilty towards his wife. Through the Bible, we encouraged him to make the right decision for the good of his family. We prayed together, and Deus recommitted his life to Christ. He is happy to have found a new community of believers. Deus has joined our team to do home visits with Saul in the fellowship of Katerampungu.
We praise the Lord that Kanyamuhe fellowship has grown, and we have started Sunday services. Members of the group have saved money to begin to construct a temporary structure. In Kagashe, we finished roofing our church structure with iron sheets.
- We are praying for land and chairs to sit on. The Lord has blessed us with many people.
Caravel is forty-three and married to Robinnah, thirty-seven; they are residents of Murambo Kashayo Bugangari. They live in a temporary house with three rooms. They have seven children, three girls, and four boys. Their eldest Michael is eighteen, and their younger children are Proscovia, Prosper, Darius, Ashaba, Davis, and Ruth. The family survives through selling labor and subsistence farming.
We visited their home to pray for their children who had coughs and headaches. Mr. Caravale said he took them to the clinics, and they did not get better. He consulted with a local herbalist, and there was no change. Some of his children did not finish school due to their illnesses. We prayed together and shared the Word of God. We encouraged them to join the prayer group. Within two days, God healed their children. When Caravel saw the power of the Lord that healed his children, the family believed and accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. His wife and three children are in the choir. The other four are in the Young Ambassadors. We pray that God will provide a source of income so this family can buy land for farming and pay their school fees.
Alex is twenty-seven and a single father with one child. He is a resident of Marumbo Bugangari and used to be an Anglican. Alex said that he lost his parents and lived a struggling life. He started smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol when he was young. His job was to sell drugs and cigarettes and to steal. We visited Alex, shared the Word of God, and he promised to come to our church. We thank God that Alex did come and gave his life to Christ. Alex said he was tired of the situation in which he was living, and now he is happy to be a child of God.
Hilder is fifty-two and married to Emmanuel, sixty. Hilder is a resident of Kashayo and an Anglican. She had a child who was sick. Hilder called the Anglican priest from her church to pray for the child, but he refused to come because she had not paid the church the yearly fee. Hilder then consulted with us, and we prayed, and God healed her child. Hilder has given her home to start a fellowship, and she promises to join us soon to learn more about our programs. Glory be to God.
Our church is reaching out to the community through fellowships. We have four groups and just started another one in Kyenziro cell. We also reach the community through home visits. This month we visited thirty homes and shared the Word of God with forty-five men and eighty-two women.
