LHM-Uganda Partners with a Team from North Carolina.

Last weekend was yet another season for Kayunga district to experience something different from the routine occurrences. As LHM-Uganda joined hands in ministry with a visiting team from Resurrection Lutheran Church, North Carolina. The two partnered in an outreach Ministry that involved film show events that were conducted in the towns of Lukonda, Nakyesa and Kayunga. The outreach which focused on evangelism for non-believers gathered a congregation of over 700 people, 475 of them offered us their names and contacts for follow up while 63 people asked to join a church.

Our experience in this outreach reminded us more about the parable of the wedding banquet as we stormed the streets, and all corners of these towns calling upon people to come and listen to the Good news that we had brought them. From the hidden drinking places and game zones, people gathered to watch the “Jesus” film and the “Ten Commandments” that were used to proclaim the gospel.

We also had an opportunity to reach out to people on a on a one-on-one basis as we administered prayer and counseling not to mention our participation in the construction of a school block and Sunday school ministry as we shared the love of Christ with various people which warmed our hearts and brought more meaning to the outreach.
