Latest updates from Margaret:
Below is the latest update from Margaret (March 2019):
God is faithful to His promises. I have many personal testimonies as my missionary journey continues and thank God for answered prayer.
The new year saw me visiting a church I had not been to before where I was well received and continue to communicate with them. February I went to see the children of one Church who have collected for the Sunday School in Mubende for many years.
The children, teachers and myself had a great time together as they learnt more of the life of a child in Uganda with activities that they seemed to thoroughly enjoy. The highlight of our time together was to have a live video link to Mubende where they greeted the children in Community Life Assembly.
I have also been busy with preparing the paper work for charity registration.
Trips to Uganda
I am preparing to go to Uganda for two weeks from 5th May. This trip will be mainly to consolidate administration processes.
I will be training church leaders and expect I will be spending some time with the children and their teachers as well as visiting some of our sponsored children and youth.
You are welcome
The exciting news is that the teams in Uganda and UK will be preparing for a Children’s Camp in January 2020. Theresa and I will be going, and would love to take more with us. So please pray, and if you would like to join us, do contact me as soon as possible for more information.
Community Life Assembly
The church continues to grow despite challenges. Some time ago thieves broke into the church and stole (or spoilt) their sound system equipment which they are trying to raise money to replace. They are desperate for a good keyboard such as a Yamaha PSR S650, 550 or similar. If anyone knows of one for sale could they please contact me. The exciting news is that the land adjoining the church is now for sale at a much reduced price (aprox. £4000).
We thank God for our faithful sponsors who are changing the future of those they are sponsoring. Most of our children are thriving at school and we have 3 now who have completed their O level studies. As we rejoice at their achievement it also brings challenges. Thanks to our sponsors we are able put those who achieved good grades through A level education. This is exciting and challenging as 2 want to enter the medical profession, which is a very expensive. The availability of government sponsorship is very limited, so please pray for our sponsored youth, who are very keen on studying to achieve the grades to enter into their chosen careers.
We do not just focus on academic achievement, but also want to encourage our children and youth to be Christ like, which will make them an asset to any career they enter into. Those who do not achieve good enough grades to study at A level are encouraged to take other polytechnic courses so that they are able to have gainful employment and be self-sufficient for the rest of their lives.
1. Sponsored children and youth - especially those now in higher education. Please also pray that God will open the door for more sponsors.
2. For wisdom as we finalise paperwork for the first stage of charity registration.
3. For my safe travel in the UK and in Uganda.
4. That God's agenda for my trip to Uganda will be accomplished, and for preparations for the Children’s camp in January 2020.
5. That Community Life Assembly will be able to buy the adjoining piece of land, and replace the stolen or damaged equipment.
Thank you for being part of this mission through your support. God Bless You.
