There are several Church Buildings under construction, help us pray that we can finish them quickly. We are always in need of help in building new churches.

We want to thank you for your prayers and faithful giving so we can preach the Gospel here in Uganda. Without your faithful giving we would not be able to accomplish what God is doing. We thank God for the arrival of Bro and Sis Phelps, Aaron and Kevin. They will be a great blessing in the work here in Uganda.
