HUMAN SACRIFICE

THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN FROM MY TRUCK AS WE WERE LEAVING OUR HOUSE CHURCH MEETING ON FEBRUARY 9TH IN MAYINJA ZONE. WE SAW THIS HUGE CROWD GATHERING, SO WE SLOWED DOWN AND ASKED THIS GUY WHAT WAS GOING ON, AND HE TOLD US "THEY HAVE SACRIFICED". ONE OF THE LOCAL WITCH DOCTORS HAD DISMEMBERED AN ADULT FEMALE DURING A SACRIFICE CEREMONY AND SCATTERED THE PARTS HERE. THIS HAS BECOME A MAJOR PROBLEM IN KAMPALA, AND IT USUALLY INVOLVES CHILDREN.THE POLICE DID RESCUE THE WITCH DOCTOR FROM THE MOB, BUT I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT HE DIED IN POLICE CUSTODY. PLEASE, PLEASE PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE, AND ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN OF THESE AREAS WHERE WE WORK. ALSO PRAY FOR THE SALVATION OF THESE MEN AND WOMEN THAT ARE USED BY EVIL PEOPLE TO CARRY OUT THESE EVIL AND HATE FILLED RITUALS. PLEASE PRAY THAT THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL WOULD SHINE THROUGH THIS DARKNESS.

Andy and Christina,

It is so inspiring to see how you and your family are dedicated to bringing light in the dark places of the world! We pray for you and with you against evil forces and that you are protected by the blood of the Lamb. I pray God would use you mightily to show God's mercy, love, grace and real power especially to those caught up in witchcraft. Despite the evil, you guys are making a huge difference as God will multiply every seed you sow! Blessings, safety and health to your family in Jesus Name!

This is heart breaking. We are so grateful for your willingness to love and teach the people of Uganda about God's love for them so that they may be released from the bondage of these evil practices. Gwen and Russell

Andy and Christina, I have no words to describe the range of emotions this brings up in my soul. My soul aches for these people. My prayers are with you and the kids and with these that you are ministering to. I plead the blood of Jesus over you for safety and protection. As the Word of the Lord goes forth, it shall not return unto Him void! God Bless you Guys!!
Love you so much!

Thank you for your encouragement in the Lord.

Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength they will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
