Preaching The Word

e1d40a20-1b4c-4092-af7b-af9353927481Today was the first day of a three day Evangelical conference Christian went to in Northern Uganda. He said there were between 100-200 people for the morning services and 400-500 for evening services. He said there were hundreds that came forward to accept Jesus and some of the stories from people were heartbreaking. There was a couple with their little baby that wanted prayer for protection because their village witch doctor is trying to take the baby to raise him up to be a witch doctor and they don’t want this. He was the only speaker at all of them, another scheduled Preacher from Poland got very sick and had to cancel.

The hardest part for him going to the places he is  to is he never gets all the info, clear ideas of what the program is – and there is definitely always a program whether it is consistently followed. But he is never told. For the first part of the morning he was pretty much just sitting  in a room with a lot of people who spoke no English! Sometimes he is just put in a room for hours by himself with no idea of what’s to happen. But he always knows God has his back and leans on the knowledge God will guide him and give him the words to say. So please pray for him, he wasn’t expecting to be the only speaker and preaching more than once a day so after a full day he is in his room tonight praying for the extra messages he may have to give tomorrow.
