Day 5 – Set Free and Healed!
With the start of the conference and crusade today the real work has begun! From here on out we will be ministering and working flat out!
The conference began with colorful Ugandan praise and worship led by our host church and later by Sam. Matthew shared a powerful testimony of how he was brought up in a Christian family and trained up to be the man of God he is today. Jon followed on with a message encouraging the church to seek the Kingdom of God first (Matthew 6:33). He used a practical illustration to demonstrate that our problems become so much smaller when we look at them from God’s perspective rather than our own – God is bigger than our problems!
In the afternoon the team set up the equipment for the crusade. Pastor Bob Baker preached a salvation message incorporating his testimony of God’s healing power. A large number of children and many adults responded to an altar call following the message. One child was healed of deafness and gave testimony of the miracle power of God. This was a real encouragement to the community as many of them knew that she had been deaf. Their was much excitement during the showing of the Jesus film which is in the local language Lumasaba – for many in this rural village it was the first time they had seen a movie.
The day was amazing – we saw God move mightily. We are expectant for the things to come
in the remainder of the week!
