Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. I Peter 2:12
John Mugabi 11/8
Dear fellow workers for the Kingdom,
Praise the Lord From Whom All Blessings Flow!!
We would like to thank each one of you that contributed towards the safety needs of our schools. We now proudly say “The Lord has done great things.”
On the 6th, a Muslim inspector from the Ministry of Education found us fixing windows and he said, “Your God answers prayers. How have you been able to do this big job in months??”
We are very certain that there will be no bother for us again. Well there are a few needs like furniture, but we think we are fine. Thank you so much for having stood with us and for loving to see the Kingdom of God expand in Uganda.
Today, one of the most effective methods of executing the Great Commission in Uganda is through reaching out to youths between the ages of 13 to 20 yrs. Can you imagine that in this academic year we have seen 177 students come to Christ?
We are asking God to help us attract as many students as possible for the sake of reaching to them. Our passion is to make Christ known–not money and profits. We would like to make our campus a place where students come and meet Jesus.
Within the next couple of years, our vision is that the high school will be at capacity with 1200 students. Right now we have 550 and expect 800 for the 2009 calendar year.
As I see today we need more classrooms (8) and furniture, we will need a kitchen… actually this might be the next top issue on the agenda of the Ministry. We need to equip both the library with enough Christian books and the Science lab with enough aparatus.
We are the only Christian-founded High School with such a vision in this community. We would love to introduce Jesus to as many people as possible. Muslims are busy building nice schools doing Islamization of the students; we also do not want to relax…
(Note from Frank and Cindy–this message about Islamization is being confirmed from many directions. We are hearing the Muslim north has focused intentions (and money) to make inroads into Uganda–which is a gateway into Kenya, Rwanda, the Congo, Ethiopia, Burundi and Tanzania. Not only do we need to continue to care for and evangelize the orphans in Uganda, but there is much work to be done in northern Africa, which is 95 to 98% Muslim. We cannot relax now.)
The children pictured above are close to our church. They have been fatherless for 7 months now. They had been starving until we welcomed them into the food program. Their mother earns a subsistence living and is unable to pay their school fees.
Other than wanting to preach, we also want to produce the future leaders of the Church. These Covenant Children need our attention and supervision. I therefore call upon you to stand further in the gap. We are not yet done.
Your Servant For Christ’s Sake,
Brother John Mugabi
There’s so much going on, I feel a bit overwhelmed in communicating it all. We definitely want to say, on behalf of Nkumba Ministries, a big thank you to everyone. We are seeing the goodness of the Lord and are seeing Nkumba Ministries being able to reach out to more people. Every gift of every size is received with sincere appreciation, and is immediately going to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to care for the sick, to preach the gospel. Thank you.
How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men, on those who take refuge in you. Psalm 31:19
