Dear Friends,Thank you so much for your many prayers. Believe me I can feel them here
or the lack of them when you getbusy. You must have been praying for me big time recently because the attack of the enemy has been great on many of the missionaries. Both my friend Peter, from Holland, and I were ready to pack our stuff and call it quits a couple of weeks ago. However God had mercy on me and did a couple of miracles I want to tell you about.Because my work permit expired I had to buy a special pass for $100. My Ugandan friend Faith went to immigrationwith me. We have to stand in a line in front of a window where they take our information. One of the workers is awoman who is very unfriendly. However, Faith is a very gutsy lady and she marched right into the room and tapped the
lady on the shoulder and said, “The old woman needs a special pass.”
To make a long story short, within about an hour we had our permit to purchase the pass. Sometime later Faith and Peter took a friend from immigration to lunch. Peter told him about me getting my pass in just about an hour. The man laughed and said that is impossible. The informationgoes to a committee who studies it for a week, then passes it to the chairman who sits on it for a week. No one gets apass in one day.BUT GOD-------.Also my car has a sun roof that leaks. Because of the rainy season we are in I park it in the garage. But last week Iwent to Bwonda Beach for 3 days of teaching. Both Monday and Tuesday nights my car sat out in a pouring rain. NotONE DROP of rain got into my car.BUT GOD-------.So I guess I am supposed to stay and continue teaching these people how to get to the truth of the word of God. As youknow I pretty much follow the Precept Ministry teaching. We have now started teaching 2 Timothy after the class onObservation. They really eat it up!
We would like to stay a whole week in each area but have limited money so it isn’t
possible. Pray that the money increases because prices are very high now. Gas is now about $6 a gallon and we travellong distances. It was 314 km round trip to Bwondha Beach.We have training scheduled through August with the exception of June. We like to keep June open in case the opportu-nity to travel with the short term missionaries comes up.At the present time we have a very serious problem with the lack of trainers. I am holding classes in my home for thosewho think they would like to teach. It may be they find it too demanding because they drop out early on. Two more areto begin the training in a few days and I hold more hope for them as they are already disciplining others.Below are several pictures of a average day I have here on the mission field. I hope they will be a reminder to pray for me and he wonderful people of Uganda to whom I serve. If you would like to find me on the web,this is the place.
