We Made It to Uganda!

FINALLY! We've made it to the Field of UGANDA!
Our First Month

The Mbale children

22 Baptized in Mbale, Uganda

The Start of a New Chapter
 After deputation ended mid-August, we traveled to Texas and Arizona to spend time with family and to pack and send off our supplies to Uganda! What a job that was! We were glad to get that job done.  We enjoyed final days with the family.

We give special thanks to our oldest son, Justin and his wife, Tara, who helped us prepare for departure. Also, special thanks to our Arizona friends for all they did to help make things easier.

We arrived on October 11, 2013, early Friday morning welcomed by Missionaries Rev. Phil and Twyla Tolstad and many helpers to help with the tubs!  We truly appreciate all they have done to help us get settled in... THANK YOU!

Special thanks to Doctrine Seminar Supporters:
Mount Elgon Seminar
Our first trip into the bush was to the Mount Elgon Region near the Kenyan border. Special guest from Texas, Rev. Stephen Harris, was the Seminar preacher. Missionary Tolstad and Phelps taught doctrinal studies to the pastors, members and visitors. 43 received the Holy Ghost and 22 were baptized in Jesus Name!  Exciting Times!

West Nile Region
We travelled into the bush of the West Nile Region to the District of Adjumani working with Bro. Robert, the presbyter, and had a Sub-Regional Meeting! 25 filled with Holy Ghost and 10 baptized in Jesus Name!

Over 30 received the Holy Ghost in the Headquarters church the month of October! Rejoicing in what the Lord has done!

"How then how then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?and how shall they hear without a preacher? and how shall they preach, except they be sent" - Romans 10:15
