We are preparing to minister to 800 students at a primary school in Masindi Uganda this fall through Love Covers. The school is near to the Canaan Farm where our tractor is being put to work. Our dear friend and faithful supporter of the ministry, Nadine, is pictured here doing a mini-Love Covers in February. She raised the money to give 100 children a Love Pack and shared her photos with us! Nadine and a team from her home church, Calvary Chapel Billings, Montana, are planning to facilitate outreach in September. FRMA has committed to providing 400 Love Packs.
The families of these children have all fled Northern Uganda due to the violence of the LRA. Wes and I had the honor of meeting with a group of moms who are part of Rabuna Fi Masindi in January (these ladies make the lovely bamboo jewelry we offer). They shared their testimonies – I can’t wait for all of you to read about them in the upcoming newsletter. The stories broke our hearts but at the same time made us worship the One who can save to the uttermost! God has strengthened these saints in the face of unthinkable tragedy. They are pictures of resilience and grace.
I ask you to pray that Jesus will begin to soften many hearts for the outreaches. Our hope is that every child who receives a Love Pack will invite Jesus to live in their hearts. We are hoping that revival will come to Masindi. Pray for Richard and Suzan to be empowered for the daily labor of love at the farm. Pray for Nadine, Pastor Wayne, and the saints joining us on the team; ask God to speak to them and give them vision. The team will be here for two weeks, but their labor of love will be a memory these kids cherish forever….and Lord willing it will mark Spiritual Birthdays for hundreds!
