HCC supports projects in Soroti Disctrict, Uganda through Tearfund Connected Church.
Greetings in the name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. It has been a long time since you heard from me, but God remains faithful to me, my family, the church and the community! I now have 11 children and two grandchildren, and my wife is expecting our 12th child. My business is going well, and I’ve been able to sell my old motorcycle and buy a new one.
Ogongora Church continues to be actively involved in the ministry of helping the needy, thanks to your support.
We recently collected food and clothes and sent them to the nearby village of Karamoja, where people have been dying from famine. We aren’t doing this because we have a lot – the last season was challenging for us – but because we have discovered the secret of giving.
If we are burdened, we give, and we believe God then gives to us. We’re already witnessing his blessings this year because the rains we’re having are good for growing crops.
We are progressing towards achieving a better water supply in the village. Thanks to Tearfund, two church members have been trained in rainwater harvesting, and we hope to have a tank built at church soon.
We’re still hoping to win local council support to build a borehole, but we won’t find out for a while. In the meantime, we’re concentrating our efforts on the construction of our new church building.
Thank you for your faithful support through Tearfund partner PAG. It really is making all the difference to us, inspiring and enabling us to press ahead. Thank you.
- Pray for Joseph’s wife, Florence, pregnant with her 12th child. She’s been unwell and is waiting to find out if the baby is affected.
- Pray for those communities like Karamoja suffering severe food shortages.
- Pray for the good weather to continue in order for crops to grow.
- Please pray urgently for Richard, who you have been following. He is struggling against the alcohol and gambling that caused him so many problems in the past. Pray for the church as they support him, and for his wife and children.
