Prayer

Please pray for all Americans in this country and for all the people here.
The Embassy has cautioned Americans to take extra precautions when out because of demonstrations against the US following the shooting in California. It is kind of hard to understand considering the man had a criminal record and this country wouldn’t even let him return here. Nevertheless, there has been unrest over the situation.
The other situation is the return of the opponent in the Presidential elections that has been charged with treason. Most of the controversy and demonstrations over this will be in Kampala and caution is called for next week if traveling there. We don’t plan on that.
So, extra prayers would be appreciated. We are getting back into the swing of things and have faced opposition of our own here. We know God is in control and just as we have prayed since we arrived here, he continues to remove hindrances to His plan for our village.
Mostly all of our crops are in and we look forward to the time that we and the farmers will be able to sell. It is stressful and exciting at the same time with this being our first big project!
My verse for today is Matthew 5:11-12;
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil again you because of Me”
All week my devotions and daily verses have pointed to the hope that comes from knowing God has a plan and though there may be struggles and trials, He will make a way. We must just stand firm, keep our eyes on Him and look forward to what is on the other side.
