Uganda - Famine Relief
We have been able to send two further donations to Lira for famine relief. Our partner, Milton Ogwal writes:
“Thanks for the consistency that has covered all the bad period of famine for the most at risk people in Alebtong district.
There has been no more death from lack of food. Two people had already died from famine before the intervention, the pregnant woman and the lady who could not take it and just committed suicide. Lives were saved or many deaths could have been witnessed.
Altogether 15 people gave their lives to Jesus. There are many of them who have started going to church and there is chance that some of them could get saved later on.
There has been good rainfall since then which is also answer to prayers. In a few week there will be harvest starting. Even now some other parts of the country have started harvest . So food prices have fallen down a bit. Seeds for planting of some special vegetable which take only 3 to 4 weeks before they can start eating.” We thank God for good news from abroad (Proverbs 25.25)
We have agreed to sponsor Walter Olima, the first convert to Christ in our 1998 crusade in Agwata, resulting in Celebration Church, which is doing well, through a BSc in Agriculture.
India — Children's Home
We have been able to send a further significant donation to help complete the Boys Dormitory for India Village Ministries.
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

The Director’s short biography “Faith in Action” is now published, together with an audio version and CD. It is available from our office on request (£5 +£2 p&p) or on Amazon.co.uk. Just 76 pages, and intended to be used as an evangelistic tool, written on request especially for an overseas readership. Please pray that it will reach all for whom it is destined.
