INN-TERNATIONAL


Uganda - Famine Relief
 
A heart-breaking plea came from Milton Ogwal, our Uganda partner since 1994. 

“Greetings.
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.
Thanks
Milton”

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)

“Greetings,
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. 
Rev. Milton" 

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

Relevant  Question

Is gay sex a sin?
 

 

 


 

Peter replies with relevant answer

Well, that got your attention!  Simple answer, “Yes.”  As is fornication, adultery, bestiality, and any form of sexual expression outside of God’s laws.  Which makes us all sinners—and in case you are thinking, Not me, surely?, yes, probably you too in your thought life, or if you are utterly pure in terms of your sexuality, then there will most certainly be another area where you have sinned, as God has made it perfectly clear that “all have sinned” (Romans 3.23).  But that is not really the point of this reply, as I know I am writing here for Bible-believing Christians. It is relatively easy in our context to pontificate with a bold, “Yes.”  But how many of us react the same in the workplace, or in a non-Christian setting?  The issue I am concerned with is the apparent impotence of the church in public to speak the truth clearly as we ought (Colossians 4.4).  We are increasingly finding ourselves in a similar situation to the early Christians.

They challenged the sexual, social and political views of the Roman Empire.  They didn’t kill their own unwanted children, or sleep with whoever they wanted, or engage in prostitution or any other form of sexual immorality.  They would not bow the knee to Caesar when asked to - only to Jesus.  And so they were slaughtered.  They could have said ‘We will do one thing in public and another in private.’  But they didn’t.  Today the tendency is to just go with the flow for the sake of peace.  But the ‘peace’ we have is to be bullied and pressurised, mocked, intimidated and marginalised in an ever paganised society which promotes tolerance of all—except Bible-believing Christians.  Jesus silenced the critics, clever and cunning as they were and as our media are today, and they reached the point of not even daring to ask him any more questions in their wicked endeavours to trick Him.  I long and pray for that wisdom and authority in His church today.
