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…
