Worship and Building the Anchor Churches….

From Arthur Magezi, Aug 9th…

The Lord is blessing us as we work hard here. Please pray for a rugged vehicle to Worshipping_in_Balawulienable me follow up this great work after the mission!.

Here we are worshipping on Sunday in a new Balawuli church recently established.

Zac, one of the members of the missionary team from the U.S. helping with Transform Zac_earting_fruitUganda II, is shown here eating Uganda fruit for the first time!  Mmmm delicious!

Reminds me of a verse in the Bible:  “Taste and see that the Lord is good!”.  Did you know -the variety of fruits available in Uganda is heaven for any fruit lover.

Uganda has fertile soils, very pleasant climate and lots of rain – perfect conditions for tropical fruit. Fruit here grows almost without labor; at least that is what Winston Churchill thought.Construction_at_Nabigaga

As you know, one of the goals of CTM, and the Transform Uganda outreach, is to build two “anchor” churches for the many churches throughout the region.  These churches are to have sturdy, brick walls, and be key gathering places for believers.

Progress_buildingHere you see construction starting at Nabigaga.  The walls are being formed, and workmen in the construction teams are cementing the bricks. We pray along with the Psalmist: “Peace be within your walls…” Psalm 122:7

It is comforting to note that Jesus is the reason for our fellowship, Raising_the_wallsand our communities.  Our faith is in the Lord – He is our Rock, and our Redeemer.  As long as we place our trust in Him, we shall not be moved.

In another place in the Scriptures He says” “See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands. Your walls are continually before Me.” Isa 49:16

Even though we are building physical church buildings here, we always should keep in mind that Walking_along_the_wallsthe “church” is not a building – it is the people of God, the community of believers who have their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ!

And we have to remember that all of these provisions to build the church, and these buildings, come from the Lord!  As it says, “Unless the Lord builds Children_with_buildersthe house, they labor in vain that build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain” Psalm 127:1

Where the builds are, the children are not far away.  Here we see children playing as the builders make progress on their work.

May our Lord bless and keep you.
