Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity of sharing the gospel with many people of different walks, in prisons, villages and in other countries of the world. This has exposed me to so many things and issues. Today I know some of the reasons people do not want to fulfill the Great Commission. Reasons include:
1) Do not want to disturb
2) Fear some people will not receive them
3) Lack of confidence that they can do it
Recently I went to visit three government Prisons very far from Nkumba, and I went with a team of 8 young boys. By the time we got there (300 km away), I was very tired and I asked my team who of you is ready to share? All kept quiet till 1minute was over. Then this boy called Kassaija Patrick in a loud voice said, I am ready to preach, then another one Richard Kiguli said I am ready to give a testimony, then Jonathan Kimuli said that I will lead worship and praise. This did not only bring joy to me but also satisfaction that children who were nothing are now something.
Our dear friends, I do not have enough words to express my joy and happiness but I am happy and content. Your labour and sacrifice is not in vain; this will bring a revival in Christ’s Church.
I remember when I was in Southern Sudan 8yrs ago. A man approached me and asked, Preacher, tell me if the will of God is for you to have a shirt, pants shoes and we are naked? I did remove my shirt and gave it to him.
Patrick in the picture above did not only preach the Word but also came back without a shirt. He did give it away to one of the prisoners who was naked. I shed tears for I remembered…
I am grateful to God and you, our beloved friends, for the works of the Great Commission which you are doing through us. Your children are not the same any more, and from this trip I learnt that God can use everyone, no matter the circumstances. I request you all to keep all our Children in prayer.
Be blest and God be Glorified,
Brother John Mugabi.
But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. I John 3:17-18
