Event: Arivu Jaya

Event: Arivu Jaya

MET had a short (two day) outreach to Jaya village in Arivu sub-county to strengthen a local church there. Amidst challenges, the Lord worked his ways to bring glory and honor to his name.

Door to door sharing:

  • 149 people reached
  • 21 were saved.

Open air preaching:

  • 730 people heard the word of God
  • 80 surrendered to Jesus
  • 75 were prayed for.

Jesus Film:

  • 910 watched the film
  • 20 got saved

Praises:

  • The Headmaster of the nearby primary school closed the school early to allow teachers and pupils to hear the gospel and permitted us to use the football field.
  • Some church leaders from other nearby churches defied orders to cooperate with the local hosting church to make our work fairly comfortable.

Testimonies:

A certain woman came forth to be prayed for with her 12 year-old son. She said her husband started making money using powers from the dark side. Whenever he gives her money for managing the home, she only sees his face on the money. At times a bee buzzes near her ear and she begins to pass out. Even her son nearly died because he sacrificed  him to gain more wealth. As soon as a team member began to pray for her, tiny as as she was, she became violent and kept on throwing strong punches. After a while, the Lord reigned over the demons and she was set free.

One young adult, Charity, asked to be prayed for because she was afraid that she was experiences curses from her relatives for run off with a man who has not paid her bride price. Her seven month old pregnancy mysteriously disappeared weeks before MET reached there. She was scared that it was as a result of the curse. She was asked if she was born-again, she answered in the negative. After explaining to her the need to let Jesus in her life, she agreed. While praying, she said;

“Satan I refuse you and all your ways. I now belong to Jesus.”

Demons manifested in her and later departed from her because indeed she was now for Jesus.

Jessica, in her late thirties, said she has a constant headache that would not go away and that some times for no reason at all she would feel dizzy. She also said her children were always sick. Realizing her situation was demonic, she was asked to surrender to the Lordship of the Savior. She thus asked the Lord to take over her life. Demons then violently threw her down as they left because Jesus had taken residence in Jessica.

Event: Kakumiro

Event: Kakumiro

Here is a report about the Mobile Evangelistic Team’s mission to Kakumiro District from June 10-17, 2019.

Kakumiro District was curved out of the Greater Hoima District which lies in the Western part of Uganda. In this region, there are four main people groups (tribes) – Banyoro, Bakiga, Banyankole and Batoro. Farming is the main economic activity done here. The area has low literacy levels as farming for commercial purpose is prized. Roman Catholic is the main denomination and there are also a number of Pentecostal and independent churches. However, as one of the local pastors remarked,

“The gospel in all of these churches is man-centered and not Bible-centered, the people are hungry for the true gospel.

This mission was intended to strengthen two churches through discipleship seminars, leadership development trainings and evangelism. The gospel was preached from door to door, in the Open Air/Mass crusade and Jesus Film Show.

The team was composed of members from MET and volunteers from churches within Arua. The team travelled via Panyimur (a famous fishing center by the shores of Lake Albert) and slept there. An Anglican church of Uganda hosted us for the night and the team crossed the lake by ferry the next day. The ferry takes one hour to cross the lake; and there are only two schedules per day.

Achievements: 

  • At least 1,262 people were reached with the Gospel
  • 243 people got saved
  • The two churches were strengthened
  • 38 leaders were trained

Prayer Requests/Needs:

  • Pray for the team members to focus on the team task and do it with urgency
  • Pray for team development through training on evangelism and discipleship
  • Pray for tents for accommodation
  • Pray also for Bibles and other Christian literature
  • Pray for continued growth of the churches reached

Testimonies:

Timothy, a 16 year old Muslim, confessed faith in the Lord Jesus Christ at the well where he and others had come to fetch water. His friends on seeing him confess salvation decided also to get saved. This was amazing as Timothy’s friends knew that as a Muslim, he would not give his life to Christ.

But when they saw him do so they willingly decided for themselves to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in their lives.

Pastor Magezi, the pastor from Divine Truth Baptist church in Karo Karungi, during the leadership training reported that as a church they had been fought and resisted by the other churches for teaching truth from the Bible. He, however, invited leaders from all the different denominations who have been opposing them and they came and attended the training.

He said this mission has helped to break the barrier between them and the other denominations and it has helped them to hear truth with their own ears.

Event: Panzudu, DR Congo

Event: Panzudu, DR Congo

This mission was far different from any other missions we have gone to.  There were a couple of things we noticed that made the mission different from others:

  • Congo churches came together in great numbers to wait for us.
  • Over 50 participants went for door to door every day which is an unusual thing. 6 different church denominations were involved in that activity. 74 pastors and evangelists participated in the activities.
  • Places we went to for door to door, people were so welcoming and most of them received the Word and got saved.
  • An overwhelming number of people came to both the Open Air preachings and the Jesus’ Film Shows and stayed calm to listen to the preachings, watch the Jesus’ Film Shows and a good number of them got saved.
  • We were challenged by their giving. These men and women have big hearts. We were so humbled when both young and old gave clothing and whatever the Lord impressed upon their hearts to give to support the ministry to the Pygmies. The gave clothes, food items generously.

Activities:

  • Door to Door:
    • People Reached: 2,261
    • People Saved: 862
  • Discipleship:
    • Attendance: 106
  • Open Air Evangelism:
    • People Reached: 7,375
    • People Saved: 576
  • Jesus Film Show:
    • People Reached: 7,366
    • People Saved: 2,103
  • Sunday Fellowship:
    • Attendance: 539
    • People Saved: 14 

Challenges:

  • There was delay at the border especially on Congo
  • The machines failed to produce sound to be used during Sunday Service

Achievements:

  • Many people got saved
  • Great number of people eagerly turned up to hear the Gospel
  • The people were willing to learn
  • Many sick people were prayed for
  • Traumatized people got healing in their hearts

Many people were delivered from evil spirits. They fell down crying like a child. The servants of God went and laid their hands upon them and prayed; after few minutes they got clear sense.

Jacob is 69 years old. He became deaf in his childhood. He visited me on Monday to confirm his faith in Jesus Christ after watching Jesus Film. He said when the evangelists reached his home, he thought they were sent to arrest him; but his daughter told him they came to share the Gospel. So he sat with them and other people too, he cannot understand anything they say, but fortunately the preacher gave him tracks to read and invited him for tonight Film show.

“Jesus Film has brought the Gospel to light, I have now seen the truth of what I had read. From today I decided to follow Jesus and be with Him in heaven.”

The Pygmies Testimony:

“We used to live like animals but now the Gospel has reached us. Our work was to hunt for wild animals and get food. We have no houses, no clothes and other basic human needs are lacking. Through Pastor William Udar, the Gospel reached us. We are now praising God. The question is, if we who were once animals are now praising God, how about you?” stated one of the Pygmies representative during open air preaching.

Prayer Request:

  • There is a great need of MET to reach Jalasiga. A pastor who leads a church in Jalasiga said that many people in there could greatly benefit from MET services.
  • The Pygmies need more work of the Gospel and biblical teaching in their land. As we reach to them with the gospel, pray that God will bring services to meet their basic needs.

Conclusion:

Above all we give the glory to God who took us safely to the mission, sustained our lives and brought us safely back. We give thanks to everyone who stood in support of this mission and we give thanks to God for all His goodness.

Event: Congo

Event: Congo

We thank God for answered prayer. We crossed over to Congo with minimum interference. I am amazed at the local mobilization by William Udar and his team.

Over 50 people available to go for door to door now.

Panzudu has never had an experience of open air preaching and this is going to be a great opportunity. Keep praying for us that Jesus will be lifted up.

Our God Is Awesome

Our God Is Awesome

Grace and her husband got saved during door to door evangelism. This couple was helpless and hopeless because they were shackled to drunkenness. They said they started drinking heavily when evil spirits invaded their sleep. They could hardly sleep at night.

They said ‘Yes’ to Jesus’ invitation.

The next day, Sunday, Grace attended prayers and testified that they slept well without any disturbance. She said, she had a lot to testify but due to time factor, she said she will meet the pastor and discuss more in order that she may be advised biblically.

This is how awesome our God is.

From Death to Life in Jesus

From Death to Life in Jesus

Kenyi came close to physical death when he encountered our loving Master, Jesus.

Kenyi testified that he had attempted suicide under the influence of alcohol. He tried several times to stop drinking but he couldn’t. When MET was evangelizing during the door to door, they came across this drinking joint. There were 16 men all locked in guzzling their liquor. They heard the Word of God as they continued drinking.

Kenyi was the only one who boldly confessed Jesus as Lord and Savor.

That evening he came for open air preaching instead of joining his friends at the drinking joint.
