Latest updates from Margaret:
Greetings to you all. Thank you for your continuing support in prayer and finance which encourages me so much.
I am very thankful and happy to report that I have a car!
That is quite a story and testimony in itself, but it is already making a big difference. I still need to increase my income but have done some casual work at an after schools club in October, and hopefully have some part-time work for the month of December.
I am pleased to report that I am booked to fly to Uganda on 3rd January 2018 returning on 1st February. I am also thanking God that I will not be going by myself this time as Theresa, a children's evangelist from Hope Corner, will be coming with me and staying for 2 weeks.
Theresa and I will be training church children's workers followed by a 2 day children's camp. We need to raise funds for the camp so will begin a Facebook appeal to raise about £800. The children's camp will be for children from our church in Mubende and our village churches.
We had a wonderful Sunday in Lytham St. Anne's in October, preaching at both services, and I have appointments for 12th & 15th November in the Midlands. During other times I am serving in Hope Corner Church - preaching and participating in schools ministry, as well as other things.
There seems to be a fast pace spiritually as God is seen working powerfully. On 28th October there was a youth night which had an impact on the youth in town and beyond. Evangelism is always a high priority and although there are few resources is almost continuous.
The children's church facility still needs to be completed but we thank God that the future toddlers room now has a roof.
We continue to pray that Lois will be able to travel to the UK to receive hearing aids. The first stage of passport application is complete and now more forms need to be filled and journeys made to complete the next stage. This will cost about £100.
We sponsor children who are desperate for help, most have a tragic story behind them. But our sponsorship programme is changing, not only their lives and futures, but their families as well. We need to increase the number of sponsors, so if you would like to be an ambassador for us, please let me know, and you may be able to help other children too (by increasing our numbers of sponsors). Our children are about to enter into end of year exams, and some have national school leaving exams... so please pray for them.
1. Completion of the children's facility at church.
2. The rapid processing of the passport of Lois and the raising of funds for flights, visa and insurance.
3. Our trip to Uganda in January, and for those we will be ministering to.
4. For Pr. Charles, his wife Edith and their family.
5. For an increase in my finances.
As I may not write another Newsletter before Christmas I will take the opportunity to say have a blessed celebration of our Saviour's birth in your church and family.
God bless you,
