Below are updates from John Mugabi this past week! I’m not sure he slept :)…
Our Labor is Not in Vain
I have observed something with the children. On a general note, there is a physical change, a moral change, and a spiritual change. Today when I returned from prison, I found Akim, Timothy, Enock and Edward praying on their own, and Timothy was leading them. In the prayer I heard,”Thank you God for forgiving our sins, and we pray for other children who have no care. Please help them.”
Most often it is difficult for this age group to even say a word. I am so touched at the amount of love these kids have to know God… As the Lord gives us grace to be agents of change, let’s do it with our hearts opened.
Knowing God is not good enough. We must share Him with others. On this note, I would love to thank each of you who have decided to make Him known to hundreds of kids here in Uganda.

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. I Corinthians 15:58
Allow me to please introduce to you Brian Nyombi who is 20 years of age.
This boy was born in a family of 3 and all died of AIDS. It’s only he who was born without AIDS.
When he gave his story, the group from Washington was touched and decided to help him. 2/12
This term we have not allowed any new people on our food program until our food at the gold mine (30 acres of farm-land) grows up. 2/12
If you spend yourself on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed…..then the Lord will guide you always, and satisfy your needs…..You will be called Repairer of Broken Walls…Isaiah 58:10-12
I came across SimonPeter near the airport, and he was eating from the garbage dumpsters. He lives with his younger brother, and he is unable to buy food. He is the only new one I have so far brought to the food Programme. 2/13
As you can see, the decision not to bring new people into the food program didn’t last more than 24 hours. I’m so glad John didn’t pass by SimonPeter without stopping to help.
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man…?”The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37
On Valentine’s Day, 38 prisoners and wardens found the lover of their souls–Jesus Christ!
Today we went to a prison about 300 km away. Six of us went, including Esther. We had one of the finest Prison meetings in this Prison. We saw 4 prison Wardens coming to the Lord. And over 34 Prisoners gave their lives to Christ! 2/14
