Home in Texas!

Greetings!  It is good to be back safely in Texas!  Thank you so much once again for all the prayer, love and support for our mission to Uganda.  There were a few bumps along the way, but God is so good, and we had an amazing project!

In total, I had the privilege to share to Gospel of Jesus Christ with over 14,000 people, and about 7,500 said they were committing to give their lives to Christ as LORD and Savior for the first time!  This includes 28 high schools, 4 middle schools, 7 elementary schools, 3 churches, and 2 crusades.  We were also able to distribute 35,000 tracts and 150 New Testaments!

Please continue to join me in prayer for the people of Uganda.  Pray that those who committed their lives to Christ will continue to seek Him and become true disciples.  Pray that God will reveal Himself to those who didn’t commit, and grant them repentance leading to salvation in the near future.  And pray that the local pastors and evangelists we worked with will be able to continue discipling these people and reaching the multitudes with the Good News!  Pray that this project isn’t ending, but rather just beginning the work of the Holy Spirit in Uganda!

Youth Education Strategies is planning to have a busy fall and winter.  Please pray for God’s wisdom, guidance, and provision as we continue to prepare for upcoming mission projects in Haiti, Belize, Malawi, the Philippines, and back home in the United States.  God bless!

In Christ,
