July 25th – Tuesday – Evil spirits cast out, a school introduced to Christ!
After breakfast, we proceeded on our way with “Mobile 1”. We went out to visit another village on Tuesday morning. When we got
there, our Medical Team began to get to work immediately. What a blessing!
It’s Tuesday in Uganda, and what an awesome day it was. We departed for the school that we had suspected had “demonic activity” was going on. Soon after we arrived we discovered that [approximately 30-40 minutes] there was indeed some serious
demonic activity going on there. Upon realizing our suspicions were true, we needed to go to the headmaster and inquire further. As soon as we met up with the headmaster we began experiencing all kinds of commotion, especially when we began witnessing to the headmaster. We shared with him the importance of his conversion and being filled with God’s Spirit to combat this sort of evil. He accepted Christ. In parallel to his conversion two brothers that we were praying for,
they also accepted Jesus and were set free in Jesus name. Several other besieged girls (16 in all) came to Christ.
Then the headmaster began calling all the teachers together in a room and we told them how important it was that they believe in the one true God, believe on the Lord Jesus and receive Him into their hearts. Eight accepted Christ, and received him as Lord. We gave them some Bible’s, and told them to read, study and know God’s word.
It gets even better still. The headmaster then began calling the whole school of children together, and we explained the good news about how Jesus came to pay the price for their sins, and give them a full life here, and in heaven to come. Over 200 of the approximately 300 grade school children stepped forward and prayed that they would receive Jesus as their savior.
We then prayed for the whole school, and we left them in the care of a local pastor for ongoing follow up and ministering. When we
arrived a few hours earlier, there was confusion and hopelessness. When we left there was a peace about the whole school. Our God is an awesome God. There is certainly great power in the name of Jesus!
I gave away my NKJV bible to a teach at the school. He looked at it astonished, and exclaimed “How much do these bibles cost?” (they don’t have many bibles in the villages). We told him $12 or so. He was flipping the pages, and I have no doubt he will be reading it cover to cover. Praise the Lord!
After leaving, feeling very blessed that we accomplished the Lords work at the all school meeting, we thanked the headmaster, teachers and children. We departed and proceeded for the next village. Here we dropped off many supplies and bibles, and we also met with the local village leader (the “LOC 1”) to ensure he knew about our activities and our good intentions.
