Not Your Typical Teenager

For the past three months, there has been a team visiting from Slavic Missionary Bible School (SMBS). One day, they wondered upon Eli’s home while taking a shortcut from their house to the vegetable market. Eli’s aunt persistently invited them  to come and eat dinner at her home, so they used the opportunity to start a Bible Study once a… (more…)

Proscovia Baptized

After seeing Peter baptized, Proscovia (one of our students) decided to be baptized as well! She had been sprinkled as a young child, but wanted to be baptized in a more Biblical manner.

In all my life, I have never… (more…)

Prison Pineapple and Praise Report

We are enjoying the biggest pineapple I have ever seen in my life, complements of the Bible students in Serere prison. The class has grown to 25 prisoners each Sunday. They are full of questions each week and complaining that John needs to add an extra 5 hours to class! They have not only blessed us with many gifts but… (more…)
