He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:
“He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.”  2 Corinthians 9:8-9

We have exciting news to share with you!  Gifts have come in for Nkumba ministries that are allowing them to buy 20 acres of farm land, and prepare the land and plant it.  We thank God for his grace.

John Mugabi:

We are grateful to the Lord because now Nkumba Church is known throughout the community as a Centre that rehabilitates orphans, street-kids and ex-convicts.  And we are a feeding place for the hungry.

Just a few days ago, a man who had me preach in a certain Church outside Kampala was quick to direct a widow whose husband passed away 1 and a half years back.  He didn’t clarify the cause of death, but the widow looks too sick. (probably AIDS)

I looked at her children, Robert Sedawula born on the 10th Oct 2004 and his sister Eva Wanyana  born on the 16th Jun 2002 as needy kids*,  and I now present them to you for action. I have asked a Pastor who has been taking care of their mother to keep them until we are able to get them help (sponsorship).

Isn’t that amazing?!  God has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor.  He is righteous, and in his sovereignty, He has seen fit to accomplish His work through us, his creation.  He allows us the privilege of caring for those in need.

God has also made some astounding promises to us…When we give toward His kingdom work, He will make ALL grace abound to us so that in all things at all times we have everything we need.  (Our group that studied Alcorn’s book together astutely noted it says “need” not “want”!)

We get everything we want and long for and dream about when we get home to Heaven.  There is a time and place for all that…it just ain’t now!  And that we can blame on sin, the curse and death.  But one day, we will be freed entirely from sin and death.  Until then, we have a mission, and promises of provision from our great God.
