Field Report: Koboko

Field Report: Koboko

We had a four-day Jesus film ministry in Lobule village, Koboko where we intended to plant a church. In four days, 1,996 people watched the Jesus Film and 55 called on Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Naima was one of the thousands who watched. Born and raised in a muslim family, she said for years she struggled to understand the Quran but she did not speak out for fear of being punished.

“For the very first time my understanding was opened. All that I watched made sense to me,”

Naima explained. She then walked forth and prayed to have Jesus as Lord.

We realized that there was high need for more ministry in this muslim-catholic dominated area. We pray that Empower One will continue to support us to reach this community and many more. We faced challenges with the low sound of the speaker of the set. People were many but the speaker was not loud enough for them to hear the words well. Pray for this place, the new church and the people.

Thank you for supporting us.
God bless you.

Pastor Fred Abiriga,
Chairperson, Koboko Baptist Association

Jesus Film Testimonies:


In one of the camps in Waka village, Morobi Refugee Settlement, there was a woman broken by a scene where Jesus fell with the cross. As the women of Jerusalem mourned for Him, this lady burst into tears. She later said she confessed that she had never felt Jesus’ pain before. Now she knew how much He bore for her.
 

In Fuda village, Pakele Sub County, during discipleship we encountered with General Brigadier Michael, a renown military commander. He explained how he has successfully fought several wars and attained so many trainings in the army.

He said these achievements felt useless when he met with Jesus while in isolation in prison. He had no one to help him. 

In my loneliness, i felt Jesus so close to me and i confessed Him as Lord and Savior.

He narrated how difficult life can be for a general who has a case to answer. He said God has been so gracious to him and charges against him were all dropped. And he said from now he will continue with his family serving the Lord and keep on encouraging his communities and wherever the Lord wishes him to do his work, though he is yet active military, because the Word of God is the same in every type of communities.

Mary Juan has been going to Sudan Pentecostal church for so many years. She thought going to church was going to save her. When she watched Jesus film in her church last week, she saw how much Christ suffered for her sake. Juan then took a bold decision to invite Jesus as Lord of her life.

 

In Morobi Refugee camp, where the team was being hosted by African Inland Church (AIC), a 12-year-old Nuer girl who was coming to watch Jesus film tripped. In process she injure her knee. Jesus Film team took her to the nearest health unit for medical attention. God used this opportunity to be revealed to this girl’s mother through the team. She believed and placed her faith in the Creator of the universe right there.

 

John Bulele, after watching how Jesus healed every form of sick, disability and restored life in people concluded;  “Jesus is enough to all human needs. There is no other but Him.”

Jesus, More Powerful Than Charms

Jesus, More Powerful Than Charms

A couple in Okawa village, Ayire sub-county, had for long placed their faith in charms for protection, wealth and good health, even though they attended church often. Their mindset was bound to change after watching the Jesus film. During discipleship classes, the woman brought the charms to be burned publicly.

“When I saw the power with which Jesus healed various sickness, disabilities, demonically possessed people and raising the dead to life, I believe that nothing is impossible with God. 

I found it important to place my faith only on Him,” she confessed.
