Our last update on the Amazing Stories of Transform Uganda IV was on Sept 7th, when we shared Part 2 of 4 – The Trip to the Village of Wangobo, ,the experience of Pastor Brad Nassif, Calvary Phoenix, Arizona, and Chris Magezi, CTM Uganda team member.
“The pastors conference in Kamuli was a time of fruitful ministry and encouragement for the pastors of northern Uganda. We spent Sunday exploring some of the villages of the area to gain an awareness of their ministry context. The faithfulness they exhibit in ministry was truly inspiring.
Without that exposure to their ministry context we don’t think the pastors conference would’ve been as effective as it was. Going into the conference we felt inspired and impassioned to share with these rural pastors some biblical foundations and scriptural truths we had prepared.
The first day of the conference was eye opening as we delivered four messages and had two extended times of question and answer. Towards the end of the day we had more questions then we could answer, and we really began to understand the theological and spiritual issues these churches were encountering. This allowed us to tailor our messages for the next day to speak into these issues and to create more time for question and answer.
Day two was even more fruitful as the Holy Spirit helped us bridge cultural barriers and really begin to bring some of the lies and deceit of the enemy that have confused the pastors into the light of truth. We felt that the conference was a good building block for the future and was a wonderful introduction to the church in Uganda.”
Next week check back for the final Part 4 in our series of Amazing Stories from Transform Uganda IV – a final word from Dan Noel and Arthur Magezi.
