Forthcoming Ministry Trips
None planned owing to personal health of the Director. Thankfully he is 95% restored to full health, but remains under observation with both oncology and urology departments at the local hospital and is not able to travel long distances as yet.
For they are traveling for the Lord, and they accept nothing from people who are not believers. So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth. 3 John 1.7-8
We congratulate Revd Dr Suresh Vemulapalli and all of India Village Ministries on their 15th Anniversary. It has been a privilege and pleasure to have partnered with them since 2002. We continue to relate, fellowship, and support them, and trust God that we can undertake another Ministry Trip together sometime in the future.

Obang Jimmy Erem is the Senior Pastor of Three Power of Jesus Around the World Churches – Kigumba, Kiryandongo and Bweyale Churches. We planted the Kigumba and Kiryandongo churches after holding crusades in the late 1990s. Bweyale is a plant from them. For ministers to be recognised for official functions such as Weddings they must now have formal qualifications, so we are financing Jimmy to train for a Diploma in Theology in Kampala. In order to engage on this two and a half year course Jimmy has resigned his Secondary School teaching post which has been his main means of income. We will provide for him also in this respect as best we can. Please help us if you can.
Jimmy co-ordinates the Kigumba Elders Fellowship and masterminded our Crusade and Leaders Conference in January 2015. People are regularly still coming to faith in that Muslim-dominated area, which is also known as the centre for witchcraft in Uganda. Jimmy is married with two children.
The Winter Shelter served an average of 11 homeless people every night for three months and has closed now until later this year. They were provided with food, clothes, a bed, advice and help according to their respective needs.
We are pleased to announce that our Director, Rev Peter
Marchand, has been appointed Chaplain to the Mayor of
Medway for this coming year. We wish him well in this new role. He continues as Chairman of Churches Together in Medway.
