The inevitable is here. Last day tomorrow the journey starts home.
Today has been another of those rather ordinary days that even in their ordinariness (the RB dictionary) equally important as the rest. Can now come home knowing a great deal has been achieved. Again I cannot thank you all for following the blog's, praying for the mission or giving encouragement in what God has called us to do. From everyone in the team Thank you
Look forward to catching up with you at home
Today is the start of the run down, made the bank again but unfortunately so close but not close enough, we have it all ready to go but there is always that one piece of paper or one signature extra required. As the clerk said it's fine we can run with this, But. So now we have to get the but to finish. Then time spent in the office tying up loose ends and tommorrow preparing to leave. We had a bit of sad news this afternoon, a lady whom I have come to call my adopted mother
Church at Nakoloke, this typical construction of village church is in the grounds of the orphanage. People from the surrounding villages are gradually joining the children Sunday mornings. This morning as spoke on Philippians 4:13, Matt 17:20 Hebrews 13:8 again spoke on the Donkey when fell in a well. It is amazing how people remember a story, it was suggested I write it for children, with the dramatics in picture. As the Pstr made comment it is easy to remember the Scripture
No we have not missed day 17 this was spent traveling. To day Saturday had meeting the the proposed board of the orphanage at Nakoloke Mbale.

A bit of an anticlimax after establishing the office and the build up to the conference. Today was to be Bank day the opening of the account, unfortunately no matter how much paperwork is asked for no matter about following the banks format, when dealing in some African countries, what ever you have is not quite right, even listening and following what you believe is being said was really to the contrary. A friend a Ugandan having banking experience who accompanied me was als
Last day of conference Morning session spoke on being a spiritual father and the hurt caused by wayward children who do their own thing without considering the consequences using Luke 15:11-24 the Prodigal son and seeing it through the eyes of the father, the pain caused by the son in rejecting the father and leaving home to do his own thing. The afternoon session by Pstr Gerald Kasajja, trusting God for your supply. A powerful Biblical message on financial supply, seeing you
Sometimes we start a day and you know that this Has to be a God day
This is how I started today, my USB stick became curupted trying to transfer to a brothers device. Crash no longer worketh. All my notes, everything Gone. Cannot fix until back in the UK and no back up with me. I was explaining this to the pastors and found myself preaching, not relying on what gives you security and having to let go of what we might call our safety strap and trust God, before I new I was gi
The first day of conference, this was day of making history. The first time anyone can remember that a large group of ministers and Pastors traveling so far to be in communion with each other. Some of the group left their homes at Midnight to arrive by 10am in the morning. Then staying at the meeting all day not going to their hotel until the meeting was finished for the day. We had an awesome presence of God in the morning Worship no word just 3 plus hrs of Worship.
