Dear Family & Friends,
I have an incredible opportunity to be a part of a small missions team traveling to Africa in late March. The team will spend one week in Uganda at Prepare the Way Ministry and then one week in Ghana at Father’s House.
Uganda, East Africa
“Prepare the Way Ministry equips believers to carry the atmosphere of Heaven or presence of God into every situation resulting in salvation, revival, healing, deliverance, and restoration (Luke 4:18-19). This ministry desires to see God's people give their lives in wholehearted abandonment to knowing Him and making Him known throughout the nations of the world.”
Prepare the Way has a children’s home, a Christian primary & secondary school, a Bible College with two campuses to train and equip pastors and Christian leaders from around East Africa (Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, Congo & Sudan), farming projects and an evangelism & village outreach ministry.
The Holy Spirit is pouring out many signs and wonders through Prepare the Way’s Evangelism Team. Here’s a testimony that was posted on their Facebook page on January 27, 2019:
Praise God! God is using ordinary people filled with the Holy Spirit to heal the sick... Prepare the Way’s evangelism team went into the village of Nsenya, Uganda where a young boy named Gideon was brought to them. Gideon was both deaf in both ears and completely mute. As “God’s present day Disciples” began to worship and fill the atmosphere with intercession, a fragrance of worship ascended to the throne. Gideon miraculously began to hear and to speak. Shouts of victory and cries of joy were loudly heard throughout the village. The news of Jesus as Lord quickly spread throughout the region!
Ghana, West Africa
I have been privileged to spend time at Father’s House on three prior occasions. Father’s House Ghana is “a community outreach center and long-term holistic care facility for children rescued from slavery and exploitation... [that seeks] to raise up disciples of Christ in a loving home environment.” You can catch a glimpse of what God the Father’s heart looks like by spending time at Father’s House. It’s a gathering place for the village. Children run, laugh and play! It's a refuge! It's a well! There's a table prepared!
I am not entirely sure what to expect during this trip; I just have to be ready to flow with the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, I am excited about visiting the nation of Uganda for the first time. I want to soak up all I can from the amazing folks at Prepare the Way as well as take part in all the wonderful things God is doing there! I also look forward to returning to Father’s House Ghana. I can’t wait to see the kids again!
I would greatly appreciate your prayers and support as I embark on this adventure/assignment in Africa. The cost for this trip will be approximately $3,000 ($2105 airfare + $350 visas + $300 accommodations + $245 food & other expenses). Donations made through GiveSendGo, although convenient, are not tax-deductible. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please contact me and I'll explain how to do so.
