Here is the current list of items that are needed for the children’s school

Heavenly greetings to you all our beloved brothers and sisters in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We trust in the Lord Jesus Christ that you all and your families are doing well and enjoying the presence of Our Lord.

Our Thanks

We would love to extend our great thanks to all our brothers and sisters who have supported JESUS IS LORD MINISTRIES UGANDA prayerfully and financially to meet the needs of the children (orphans, street, needy and vulnerable children) who are under our child care program.

You all dearly fall under this scripture :

James 1: 27
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Our Request

On 8th of September 2014, schools in Uganda will be officially opening and students will go for their third term or end of year term ,the children lack school tuition ( fees) and school supplies.
We therefore request that you prayerfully consider supporting these children with school fees and supplies since they can not stay in school without them since those without are being chased back to their homes hence missing a lot from school.

The List of School Needs Still Unmet

We have listed down each school item with the amount in USA dollars value the number of items needed, We request you to give to any of your choice according to any of the following items listed . Your monetary donations and support will go directly to purchase the school supplies for the children.

ITEMS USA ($)

School tuition (fees) 450

26 Dozens of books 96 pages 40

36 Dozens of books 48 page 43.9

8 Dozens of mathematical sets 49.8

5 boxes of pens 31.2

10 boxes of pencils 49.8

TOTAL $664.70

Please any amount the Lord directs you to give is accepted. No matter how small it might be it will make a bigger difference in a child’s life.
We highly value your donations since the ministry entirely operates by your donations. We therefore appreciate your prayers and support that you have offered to make sure that the children’s needs are met and we wish we could meet you in person to show you how much we appreciate.

NEWSLETTER – JUNE, 2013

 JESUS IS LORD MINISTRIES UGANDA

When we finished the building of Florence Bengo’s house 13th April 2013, we took a brief tour in the village; we did not know that God was leading us to help another widow who urgently needs help!

God led us to this widow called Rachael Nabiry who is blind of 86 years, she is staying with two of her daughters children who died of AIDS and they are the ones who are now taking care of her which has made these children not to get a chance of going to school. The whole house needs to be renovated, the roof links when it rains which causes them not sleep some times when it rains at night. We need your support to help Rachael and we can do it with your support.

Name:   Rachael Nabiry
Age: 86
Occupation: none
Health Status:  Blindness and advanced age

This is the picture of her full house which she sleeps in with those two kids. The iron sheets of the roof are all very old and they leak when it rains. The whole roof needs to be removed and then replace a new one and that is what we need to do for her – if you can help us to do it.

Prayer Groups, Testimony, and Widows Crafts

VILLAGE HOME CELL PRAYER MEETING

Prayer Groups

Whenever our ministers go to the home cell prayer meetings in the village on Tuesday and Thursday many people join them – even the ones who are not saved.

We started with 5 people, but now there are 17 and we believe God is bring more people to join.

In these home prayer cells, we pray, teach people the word of God, pray for the sick, and invite those who are not saved to get saved.

THE WIDOW’S TESTIMONY

A widow at the home cell prayers gave a testimony and here it goes:

At night around 3pm when I and my children are sleeping, I heard a child saying “Who poured water on my bed?”

The child was feeling and touching something so cold; I had to wake up and get a candle.

When I checked, it was a big snake on the child’s bed!!!!

We cried for help from the neighbors and they responded so quickly, the snake was killed.”

There are so many great miracles that the Lord is doing in our home cell prayer group and the numbers of people are increasing every time when we go for prayers.

This is what our director David Oteko in Uganda told the group after the testimony:

The Lord says in Psalm 91: 13

You will trample upon lions and cobras,
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet.

Psalms 91:14 says:

The Lord says will rescue those who love me,
I will protect those who trust in my name.

Please my brothers and sister, stand with us in prayer for this ministry that God will continue to do mighty miracles for the widows and orphans.

WIDOW’S CRAFTS PROJECT

Our widows are making paper necklaces for income-generating activities and soon they will be on sale here and hopefully on Etsy.com as well.

This project will help the widows and their families to earn a living since these crafts will be sold all over the world. They are in different colors and we hope that you will order a necklace or other craft to help a widow in Uganda. More information coming…
