Motor Cycles Delivered to Grateful Village Pastors!
July 27, 2018 update: Moses Magezi, our faithful servant and project lead on the ground in Uganda, has provided us with an update on the use of some of the funds we raised at the CTM special event we held in June at the home of Dan and Ann Noel.
As you recall, during the June event we were able to raise donations for the work of CTM in Africa. We noted during the well attended event (we had about 7-80 people attend!) that CTM is entirely dependent on donations from faithful friends and supporters – here in the U.S., and well as to some degree in Africa and elsewhere.
Among the needs mentioned was the need for pastors of these small back country villages to have some form of transportation (other than walking) – to get around the village, go for supplies, and minister to their flock. As you have seen in previous blogs, we have been providing as many bicycles as we could afford to pastors in the villages. But some of the larger jungle villages with 100-200 people really calls for a small scooter for the pastor.
We are happy to report that with some of the funds you had donated, we were able to purchase this July four (4) motor scooters for some of the pastors in the larger villages! The pastors who received the motorcycles included:
- Pr. Paul MWESIGWA from the Bumogoli church
- Pr, Kizito blessing from the Kabale church
- Pr. John Okuni from the Kasala church
- Pr. Vicent Muloki from the Bulondo church
Please see the photos included that depict the events that took place at the meeting in mid July at the Nabigaga church.
The pastors received the motor scooters with great joy. These scooters will allow they to: visit local church members; go for suppliers into the local town, or run an urgent errand.
Notice how the local churches pray for the pastors, and over the motor scooters, as they received these gifts of transportation from our CTM supporters. These pastors are from the same churches we have been visiting over the past 3 years, helping them establish their church, equipping them to teach their members about the Lord, supplying them with materials, enabling them to get access to fresh water when and where we can.
On the right you can see how the church pastors and members assembled are IN prayer over the CTM vehicle, and for Arthur and Esther, Moses, and others of the local CTM team as they get ready to be on their way back to Kampala.
One of the local church leaders also prayed fervently that the motor scooters would be blessed, and the pastors who rode them would be looked after by the Lord of all Creation. In the video enclosed you can hear her prayers as all listened and joined as one.
In closing, we want to thank you for your generous hearts in giving to make the work of CTM in Uganda possible. You are the members of the body of Christ that have made this possible through your giving. Now these pastors can tend to their churches, and be much more effective in ministry.
