Robert Mary Ministry Newsletter 2013/2
It is so close I cannot believe that on the 23 May the students leave for Carmel Bible College Mission to Uganda, they are busy raising funds through Sponsored Half marathons, a myriad of individual events; cake sale, car boot sales, car washing and just asking friends and family
This year due to a recent Heart Bypass operation I shall not be with them but we have another to take my place, Rev Michael Fletcher and his wife Victoria will lead the team, With Paul & Clare Isbell in firm support. 16 persons will be traveling and we shall continue the work in the Sibanga District, Mbale this year visiting the village of Lwanjusi the name means ‘Where the wild animals used to be’
It is disappointing not to be going but I know that God has a mammoth task ahead for me so I am happy to organise the mission from my arm chair, knowing that the team going is going to make a difference in many people’s lives.
Many years ago God gave me a vision about Uganda I have not shared it with many, the content of the vision was seeing God’s work being done through out this nation, I said to God I cannot physically do this I am only one person, His answer was yes you can, when you train and send you are there.
Each year we hold an Alumni breakfast in Kampala with all the Ugandan students that have been through Carmel Bible College here in Bristol. This year will be no different, that Alumni Breakfast will still take place. It is through these men and women that Gospellife International aided to come to Carmel Bible College over the past 10 years that God’s vision will be accomplished.
It is not too late to support this mission.
We will be taking Bibles, clothes, school materials, and we hope to supply building materials for the village churches to accommodate there growth plus blankets for the families to overcome the cold nights in this mountainous region.
Please continue to pray for the mission and the mission team, that God’s work will be accomplished, souls saved, people healed and people set free from bondage and cults.
I know that this will be another mighty mission where God’s favour will abound.
Rev Robert Baker
