As mentioned last week, we thought it would be good to share with you how the Lord answered the specific prayer points we had shared with you before our trip. We hope you will be encouraged.
- Exploratory Farming trip
Unfortunately this trip had to be cancelled due to unexpected changes in our timetable. However, we are delighted that we have been told we can arrange this for a future trip.
- Safety and good health for the long flights
We thank God for His hand upon us during the long journey. We did have delays on the outward trip and we were very tired....but we thank Him that the crew became aware of a problem in the plane and it was repaired. Had the Lord not brought it to their attention it could have resulted in a serious problem.
- Our time and ministry in Uganda
Uganda was hot! We all struggled a little with the heat BUT we enjoyed our time in the country very much. We visited a number of schools and Churches; met many wonderful children and were encouraged by the enthusiasm of the Pastors and Children's workers. We look forward to developing the ministry in the country.
- The need of £1800 to secure our hire car
God provided the entire amount which was needed. The car was paid in full before we left UK. Since returning home, the security deposit has been refunded in full as thankfully there was no damage and the hire company were satisfied with the condition the car was returned in. This was a big need and we give God the glory for His provision.
- Meeting with markers and teachers in Nakuru
This was such an encouraging time. We met with the team who are now ministering regularly in schools in the Nakuru area. We discussed much and have much to implement in the future.
- Practical Work in Office
This was the most frustrating part of our trip. We bought the materials and were ready to begin the work.....and then it all went wrong and we could not proceed. We were discouraged, disappointed and didn't really know what to do next.....BUT....since returning home we have realised that it didn't really go wrong but it was all in God's plan and there was a reason for what happened. We will share an update on this very soon.
- Workers' Meeting
A very productive and united meeting. It lasted quite a few hours but we covered everything on the agenda. Many good suggestions were made and agreement was reached on all issues. We thank God for such a great team.
In the run up to our trip we listed many issues for prayer. As you reflect on them now, we hope you will be encouraged to see how God answered. We are just amazed when we look back at how HE went before us and was in complete control of each and every situation. Thank you all so much for praying and standing in the gap. There is much planned for the coming weeks; in the will of the Lord; we continue to need guidance, wisdom and provision for the coming days and trust you will remember us before the Lord.
