Walk Uganda 2016
A group of TFM team members have recently finished another of their visitis to Uganda.
Read below a brief report from their mission.
The team of 12 was led by Sid O’Neill with Martin West 2ic & Judy Miller Treasurer. We always give the glory to God.
Weather and travel generally good, 7 of team went down with tummy problems during the 3 weeks. The country was tense given elections and controversial result but we felt your prayers with the result being we were safe and felt peace wherever we went.
Through preaching the Gospel we counted 945 individuals who received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Except for the Prisons, Hospitals & Schools, names were taken and for the most phone numbers too for follow up. Includes Muslims, Cult members, Protestants, Catholics, 7th day Adventists & others plus non believers in an “Open Heaven “ environment.
As well as preaching the Gospel the team gave seminars to equip the saints & gave food & gifts to the poor, needy and those whom the Holy Spirit directed us to.
