The New Minisry Schedule

Now that we are under one roof with all of our students, we have begun studying full time. John has done a good job coming up with a tight schedule, and he is sticking to it. He keeps it taped on the shelf next to the Bible and doesn’t respond well to objections. It goes something like: 6:00 am, class… (more…)

Staying Disease Free

Our students returned from the agricultural training in Kenya last week. After one month of fasting from everything except raw vegetables, they have been declared “disease free.” To be quite honest, they look pretty healthy!  We have many exciting medicinal plants laying around our house now waiting to be planted and have also been blessed with bags of nutrient dense… (more…)

For those of you who have been praying for us a vehicle, this was truly the answer! After months of trying to sell our old vehicle in… (more…)

I will never forget the day the whole church broke out in laughter when my father grabbed John by the hand during a skit. It turns out, in Teso culture, it… (more…)

Baptism

We took Peter, our new student, to church with us for the first time today, not knowing that it would be his turn to be buried in baptism with Christ, and raised to walk in newness of life. It’s been such an encouragement this week seeing him earnestly reading God’s Word this past week.
