Parades and Mourning
So the parade was a great success. An event of celebration. On the other hand, the day of mourning involved millions.
We have left Kenya and returned temporarily to Canada.
So what parade? The one that was held in Nairobi after we left. The day of mourning? In Ontario when I arrived.
The next step? We are gearing up for an official opening of the church headquarters building in Kampala, Uganda. After that: our first missions training seminar at Bombo.
I will be filling you in as time goes by. The situation in East and central Africa is challenging. There are 50 people groups of over 100,000 people, within a narrow area, which have never been reached with the gospel. There are eager people in Ugandans who want to go! They just need the training.
So as of next year, Marge and I will be working with Rev Simon Peter Emiau, the Uganda General Superintendent of 4,000 churches, to equip African missionaries to go into these challenging areas. In the next few issues I will fill you in on why this method of missions is efficient and inexpensive.
And you make it possible with your support and interest. Thank you, and may God bless you.
