Mae from Oregon Shares About Sharing the Good News in Uganda

Here is a story from Mae Dickason, from Oregon, who went along with other people to Uganda fpr the Transform Uganda outreach in July, 2015:


My name is Mae Dickason and I was one of the Americans that came to Uganda to assist Rev Arthur in his mission to plant churches. I am still processing this trip as this was my first time on a mission trip.  Never did I think I would be “one of those people that go to far away places to share the gospel”.  I have always felt very highly of missionaries or anyone that will go out of the comfort zone to help others.

This year, I was discussing with my husband that maybe I would like to go on a mission trip.  My first thought was not Africa, but Guatemala, as I knew a lot of people that did medical missions.  But, I wasn’t sure if a medical mission was want I should be doing.  I prayed and boy oh boy did God open those doors right open!  The next thing I knew I was on a plane headed to Uganda!

This picture is of a young girl in the village of Kisanga.  This village Mae_with_little_girlwas by the lake and was very heavily influenced by Islam and Witchcraft/demons.  As soon as I got out of the van, this young girl came up to me and wanted to be my friend.  She spoke some English.  She went and got her mother out of the field, along with the other women.  After Esther and Martha Wagner evangelized, both her and her mother and her younger deaf/mute sister accepted Jesus as their Savior.  She was so happy!  God is good!  I spoke about hygiene and listened to health issues the women had.  I also was asked to look at two sick young children.  The mother of one of those children asked if we would pray to have the demons removed from her.

I did not know what to expect, even though I researched as much as I could.  I have learned so much, and God willing, I will be back next year to assist with this wonderful project of planting churches!!!
