Easthams: Bibles for the North
| FRM News
Psalm 1:1-2 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the paths of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.”
We often don’t appreciate how precious it is to have a Bible. In fact, we have many Bibles in our house. We have a variety of Bibles: different translations, children’s, study, compact, and even those in different languages. Many Ugandans don’t even have one Bible in their home. Many pastors, also, don’t have a study Bible or resources available to teach the Bible to their own congregation.
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Evangelist Billy Graham, is coming to Uganda in October, 2012. It has been a privilege to come along side AnGeL Ministries to bless the people of Uganda.
Through a series of seminars in Gulu (in the north) and Kampala, the goal is to revive the hearts of God’s people in Uganda by reviving the church leadership, rooting them deeper in the Word of God. Two thousand study Bibles, two thousand compact Bibles, and six hundred children’s Bibles have been donated for this outreach.
At a recent planning committee, a decision needed to be made as to which Bibles would go to which venue. Everyone wanted the study Bibles. It was finally decided that the Study Bibles would go to the North. “This is the time for the North,” said Pastor Osiru, one of the committee members. “Let them have it.” She couldn’t have said it better. The people of northern Uganda are healing from decades of war. The people desperately need a fresh touch from the Lord.
Please continue to pray for the country of Uganda, especially for the people in the northern cities. Pray for the pastors coming, that they will have the means to come to this great outreach and that the Lord would do a mighty work in their lives so that they can take it back their villages.
