Greetings in the name of our risen Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. We hope you had a great Easter. Thank you very much for your support both in prayer and in finances. We are so grateful for what you are doing in our lives.
A lot is happening here in Uganda. At the beginning of this year we came up with our priorities as a base. One of the priorities we set in place was to attain tax exemption from the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) so that we can bring in donated items. This will be a blessing to our orphans at the Rescue Units.
In our last newsletter, we mentioned that we are planning to send an evangelism team to Rwanda. We received some good news from a former BMW student
by the name of John Rwakazayire that he wants to send some leaders and team members. We thank God for the opportunity, and we look forward to having students from Rwanda again.
The Uganda BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK Training Center (BMW) is going well and we have 21 students. We have continued to plant some beans, greens and tomatoes. The rabbit project is doing well and the students have been enjoying the rabbit meat on some Sundays. We are also keeping some local chickens, which are doing well. We started with two males and seven females, and now we have 40 chicks. We also purchased 10 chicks called kroilers; they are a mixture of layers and broilers.
This term we have had a couple of ministry opportunities. Almost every Sunday has been spent at different churches. At each service the students were able to experience different church services and activities which has added to their overall experience here.
The students have weekly visits to local secondary schools where they have the chance to minister to students who may not attend church weekly. They also visited Bunalwenyi Secondary School of Uganda where they hosted a three-day seminar. Classes covered topics such as: maturity, understanding the will of God, prayer, spiritual life and more. They also partnered with the students of the Scripture Union for praise and worship.
We are so grateful for those who partner with us in prayer and financial support. The Lord uses all of us together to minister to young people studying for ministry, to orphans with all kinds of needs and to people everywhere with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
