ENCOURAGING THE HOPELESS




I SPENT THE DAY WITH MY UGANDAN BROTHER, DOUGLAS ALIRO, IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF NATEETE. WE SPENT MOST OF OUR TIME WALKING ALL OVER THE PLACE, MEETING, GREETING, AND TRYING TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN A PHYSICALLY HOPELESS ENVIRONMENT. THIS AREA FLOODS ALL OF THE TIME, AND AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE SIDE OF THE HOUSE, THE WATER LEVEL WAS UP PAST THE WINDOWS. THE WATER HAS RECEDED, BUT THE MUD IS STILL THICK AND MASSIVE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE. HOWEVER, ON THIS DAY, WE BROUGHT WATER TO THEM THAT WE HOPE WILL FLOOD THIS AREA, THE LIVING WATER OF JESUS CHRIST. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE PEOPLE THAT PROVIDED THE FUNDS FOR THE TENT AND CHAIRS, THAT ALLOWS US TO BRING THE GOSPEL TO THE PEOPLE, OUT OF THE RAIN, AND THE HOT AFRICAN SUN.

Glad you're back from 40/40 and everyone is healthy. The Africa Berry's are a mighty powerful tool for God.

It can only be God and God alone who could give you the words and the strength to minister to those living in such poor conditions. My prayers go up daily for you and your teamates and the people of Uganda! God Bless You all!!
