On the 4th of July, we celebrated two years in Uganda. It’s a time to look back at what God has done over the last year. His faithfulness and provision has been apparent. We also look forward to what God is going to do.
For the last few years we have had such a desire to take the Biblical Training Schools into South Sudan. We have had a few opportunities, but each one of them dissolved for one reason or another. If you received our last newsletter(if not, you can read it here) , you are aware that South Sudan has been in a terrible civil war. There are many refugees here in Uganda. The Bidi Bidi camp alone has around 300,000 refugees.
We have been working with the refugee camp to build a structure there. We asked for your help to build a dormitory that will house 50 pastors and church leaders. We have built a kitchen, outside shower and pit latrine bathroom as well as a classroom. This will enable us to continually run a school at this camp.
The cost of feeding these students as well as sending our teachers this great distance is high. I am so excited to report to you that a great amount of this need has been supplied. The dormitory is completely paid for! 6 months of the feeding program is completely paid for! Thank you for praying and for faithfully giving.
Praise God! Not only are we going to have a consistent presence in the refugee camp, but these projects are generating some income for these refugees.
We have 70 pastors signed up with 16 already on the waiting list. These pastors have already planted 25 churches in the camp, with plans to plant more. God is moving!
Thank you for the part you play!
As much as we rejoice in what God has done, there is still considerable financial need to complete the buildings. If you feel led to contribute, you can do so online at www.macedoniancall.com/#/give or to Macedonian Call P.O. Box 573 Dryden, Va 24243. Please earmark gifts to South Sudan Refugees.
