Efforts To Be A Self-Supporting Congregation...

Dear brethren,

Blessed be the Lord our God who blesses us with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. The Lord is continuing his work here in Uganda. The students here have finished studying the books of 1 & 2 Peter and Jude, taught by brother Donnie Estep.

The piggery is going on well, although the cost of food is growing high. Our boar has grown old. We have sold it and we are now looking where we can get a young one to take it place.

The chicken farm is also going on well. We now have over 50 local chickens. We have bought an incubator which can hatch 250 eggs. As we do not have power at the school, we have put it at our house in Busia. We are still learning how to use it and it is our prayer that after knowing how to care for the eggs we will be able to produce 250 chicks in three months. That is 1000 chicks in a year. If this project succeeds we will be able to supply some chicks to our graduates and members of the church. Our major aim is to teach Christians how to have income generating projects, so that they can have something to give to the Lord on Sunday. 

On Sunday we worshiped at Bukalikha church of Christ that meets now in sister Grace Aguttu's home. Brother Donnie preached a very touching lesson about "God working with his people." This congregation lost the church plot which they were using to a brother who bought it after claiming that now it is his. They plan to raise money to purchase another plot and later build on it. May the Lord bless you all as you support this work.
