New Growth in Uganda: A Bible Study Multiplies

In the last two months, church-planting efforts in Kampala, Uganda, have gained momentum. A small weekly Bible study has grown into two groups, each with an average attendance of eight to 14 people. One of those is an outgoing young woman who, after just a few weeks in the study, came up to the Ugandan pastoral assistant and said that she wanted to receive Christ as Lord and Savior. She is now following Jesus and growing in her faith.

A Muslim woman has also been drawn to the Wednesday night study. She has been engaged in the teaching, asking deep questions about having a relationship with God. A young married man is probably the most vocal in the group. He is passionate about Jesus, but has not been exposed to sound biblical teaching. He has brought many questions that have served as discussion topics for the studies, and it is clear that the Lord is growing him spiritually.

Your prayers and gifts ensure that the truth of the gospel can be brought to people around the world. God is changing lives and churches are being established because of your generosity. Thank you.
