Uganda Team #15
We now have over 3,000 pics – so sorry that no one can see any of them just yet.
Pastor Woody had the opportunity to speak in the Aura high school last night around 5:30 p.m. Although there were no professions of faith, Marvin Wright said that he connected well with the students. Pastor Woody was able to speak to 80-100 students in a school of 2,000. What a gold mine that is available here at this school for the missionary. Pastor Woody spoke on God’s grace from John 3:16.
As Pastor Woody was speaking at the high school, Jonathan and I were in a different part of Aura working with the soccer team from the local university. We had a dynamic opportunity to interact with these 19-24 year olds. I was able to speak once again with Feni Emmanuel. Although he has not trusted Christ, yet, he did give me his cell phone number so that I can call him. He was so excited that we came to his practice that he invited me to his home. We walked from the soccer (futbol) field to his house where I was able to meet his mother. He is the oldest of five boys and the two youngest are twins. WOW! is all I can say about the living conditions of this family. However, it was an honor to be invited to their home.
The men continued to work until past dark last night. There is such an urgency to complete as much work as possible. Jack build a “cute” cart with wheels for the generator. The generator is so heavy that it takes four men to carry. After Jack’s marvelous work it now only requires one man… pretty ingenius!
Jerry, Dave, and some of the Ugandan men continued to cut cabinet doors until well past supper time. They are going to finish phase one… phase two will be next Spring with a new group from TBT – hopefully? Jerry informed Marvin that he would like to bring Debbie with him to Uganda. That would be an awesome experience for them. I am already praying that there will be another group of men that will begin saving and requesting their vacation time for next Spring. I know this, as will be testified by all in our group, your life will NEVER be the same again after seeing this part of the world.
The lights finally went out around 9:15 p.m. last night and everyone quickly quieted down… only to hear the shriek through the night air, “Kill it, just kill it!” And with a resounding “SMACK!” the spider was history – Pastor Woody is such an awesome hero today!
Our team is pretty much amazing and it continues to be a joy and delight to get to the other side of everyone’s personality and love for the Lord on this trip!
