Remember the greatness of our God!!!
The Psalmist David said, The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. Psalm 111:2-6 KJV
I encourage you to stay connected with the works of the Lord… after all he is our Father.
The Ugandan Save the Mission was successful!
Thank you for your prayers and support! This is not the complete story…just the beginning. But words alone cannot fully communicate the honor I feel or the gratitude that overwhelms my heart for you. You reached out with your love, your faith, your prayers, and you gave generously to fulfill the Lord’s vision and commission.
In the end of July, after the miracles of overnight Visas, and rescheduled flights, and miraculous connections and six hour African road trip, we landed at the Lake View Hotel, Mbarara, at approximately 11:30 PM Friday. We rejoiced to fall into bed.
We awoke the following morning to fulfill the word of the Lord, and began the ceremonies around 10 AM on Saturday. It was Bishop Naboth’s Ordination; a magnificent and glorious celebration. After Bishop Naboth was ordained, Martha Seimway of the President of Uganda’s executive office delivered a passionate and powerful, God fearing and honoring message. She was going to deliver a political speech, but was overcome with the beauty of the Spirit. The Spirit gripped her as she confessed her faith, and compassionately called all Ugandans to remember where God brought them from. As she finished, she knelt on the platform and asked in tears for us to bless her, and her staff. As we prayed and anointed them, God opened another level of power and authority. The ceremony ended with bows and hugs. God is moving! This is the beginning of a relationship with the office of President Museveni.
During the meetings, three people received Jesus Christ as their personal savior, and the reports are still coming in to Bishop Naboth about miracles. Many signs and wonders, with accompanying words of blessing released Holy Spirit transformation. One woman whose arm was twisted in an accident stretched out her arm and was healed! Another man who endured great pain in his legs received complete restoration – this was Bishop Naboth’s brother Eric. And, another lady received complete deliverance from a witch doctor’s curse, and received salvation – body soul and spirit wholeness!
Later, in The Redeemed Church, all-day-long ceremonies, we ordained twenty Pastors who needed to return to their churches, and would miss the Sunday Pastoral Ordination Service. Then on Sunday, the Lord moved powerfully. Alice’s sister, for the first time, received Jesus as her personal savior. Another gentleman received Jesus as his Savior, after the Lord healed him.
Unknown to us, a national television new channel received videos and published on the news the story of Naboth’s Ordination. And on Sunday evening, we were told and it was verified that Bishop Naboth’s story ran on the evening news, transmitted all over Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, and Burundi, as well as other African nations.
Our Father knows how to glorify His sons and honor His servants. The scripture says, “…humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and He will exalt you in due time.” This Trip fulfilled the word of the Lord!
We are celebrating the Lord’s victory, and as King David before us, and with the same declaration we say ” … that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. (Ruling in and through His sons and daughters) And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s… (1 Samuel 17:46-47 KJV)
Thank you for standing with us in your prayers, and with your generous investment in the Kingdom of God for a bright and glorious future for our brothers and sisters all over the world! Matthew 6:33
