May CTM Uganda Teaching Event

CTM Uganda May training event

During the middle of May, for about two weeks, CTM visited a number of villages in the back country of Uganda to hold pastoral teaching events.

The goal was to train and further equip all of the leaders  and pastors from the churches in the Busoga region. Two teachers from Nigerian churches came to assist  – the Rev. Sheshi Steven, and Rev. Alisha.

All the pastors and leaders from the Busoga churches attended, including Elder Allan from the Kampala church, Rev.John Dayuru, and the two teachers from Nigeria – that’s Stephen Sheshi, Alisha and Moses Magezi.

After the training CTM held a meeting with all the pastors of Busoga at the Nabigaga church to let them know what the vision for CTM is, and what we see the Lord doing through our ministry to the churches, and the people of God’s churchess.

In addition, Pastor Arthur visited some churches to check on their status, current needs (for water, building, medical needs, etc.) and to encourage the pastors and church leaders – as well as church members.

The churches visited during this id May 2018 trip included the Balawoli church, the Nawangaiza church, the Nabulemezi church, the Kasala church, the Kibale church, and the Nagulu church.

CTM considers the training event a huge success, as well as the visits to the local churches.  We thank all those who continue to be monthly supporters of CTM – through your prayers, and your donations.  You faithfulness is ….

  • Literally building these church structures so the people have a place to meet and worship the Lord
  • Helping to fund the drilling of clear water wells (boreholes) so that villagers can have access to clean water, and avoid disease
  • The support that provides the funds for these training events, and monthly village outreach trips.  Without your support, CTM could not do this!

We thank God for you, and for the work He is able to do through CTM and our volunteers.

May our Lord richly bless you!

Work Progressing on New Borehole for Pastor and Nearby School!

Greetings everyone,

Its April 24th, and I wanted to give you an update on the well (borehole) that is now being dug on a Pastor Arthur’s property outside Kampala, Uganda.

As you recall, about a month & half ago, Pastor Arthur’s well ran dry!  As a result,  there was no water for his family of 11, and they of course became very alarmed.  This was a hand dug well, and not very deep after all.  And so the situation became urgent very quickly!

About a month ago, thanks to your giving and generousity, our CTM base of supporters was able to amass enough donations to truck a tank of water to his home, and at least supply his family in the short term.  In parallel, you gave about $3,000 toward the digging of a new “deep well” on his property. The total cost of drilling the basic deep well is $4,000.

We are now happy to  report that MK Engineering, our local engineering resource and master of well drilling, has started drilling this deep well on Arthur’s property. The well is about 150 deep so far, and they are continuing to drill until they hit the water table (normally this is between 200-300 ft deep).

We need about another $1,000 in donations in order to complete the drilling of this deep well to supply Arthur and his family with water, so please, be in prayer about this, and give to help complete this much needed well by visiting our Donate page (its easy to give online, and don’t forget its tax deductible!)

Another point to note is that we would like to channel some of the water from this well to a neaby primary school.  This will require:

  • Trenches to be dug from the well at the home over to the nearby school
  • Pipes to be laid from the well to the local school
  • Spigots and fittings will need to be installed at the school to supply water to students

The school has no acces to fresh water now, and is within walking

distance of Arthur’s home. If we can raise additional funds, we can install piping from this new well to the near by school, and supply hunreds of small children with clean fresh water.

Note that many students stay the week at schools, and water is essential to their survival. We need about $7,000 in additional donations to do this – please be in prayer and if you feel you would like to help fund this special project, visit our Donate page and enter into your PayPal gift comment “Help fund water to the school”.

Thank you and may our Lord Jesus richly bless you in this life and in the life to come!
