Uganda - Famine Relief
A heart-breaking plea came from Milton Ogwal, our Uganda partner since 1994.
This is to ask for your prayer as church in UK. There has been no rain since last year and people are dying of no food. We have just lost a pregnant woman in Alebtong, our home.
Pray that God gives us rain.
Pray also that God touches His people to help with whatever food, even a little can feed some one for a week. Our parliament has declared the Nation as in the state of emergency...
Sorry to bother but I can’t keep quiet. We are trying to call little locally. I personally have been trying (to help) 8 people but now am losing grip.
Well, God has heard and answered prayers. Through the generosity of a few individuals and especially one of our supporting churches, we have been able to send £1000 with more to follow in the coming months. And the rain has begun to fall.
Re: Food Relief/ Support (Alebtong)
I thank God that you are able to support the poor of the poor elderly women heading families and some old widowers with food at such a time of great famine.
It brought Joy, Hope and ten people gave their lives to Jesus Christ.
The food was distributed in Alebtong the heart of the famine most hit district. 54 households of the categories above were catered for at an average of 14 kgs of posho and 14kgs of beans and 1kgs of salt. Note: this could take them four weeks.
We pray for continuous rain as it has started and now people are putting down crops and yet we still have a challenge of two more months before harvest but we are grateful for the support and God’s grace.
We are sending more for the next month.
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

Medway Institute of Christian Thinking
We have decided to begin writing the material for this Institute. The process is scheduled for one year, after which it will be submitted to an editorial board, with a view to publishing and opening in September 2018.
The Director’s short biography “Faith in Action” is now published, together with an audio version and CD. It will be available 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.
