Students From Congo Seek Training In Uganda...

Dear brethren,

Last week I did not send my weekly report due to the blockage of my e-mail. It has taken several days to figure out what I need to verify my password as somebody was tampering with it. I have managed today to follow their instruction and they have advised me to change it. 

Last week we worshiped at the Nandwa church of Christ. I had an opportunity to preach and my lesson was on how God promises to give us through our asking (Matthew 7:7-8). All our students are still visiting the churches we have planted and some also ask to go back to their home congregations on Saturday and be with them on Sunday. We usually send them two and if one wants to visit his home congregation, there is still one to attend to these churches. 

Yesterday we worshiped at the Haboomi church of Christ where Akilimali, from the Congo, works with Mangeni from the Bugati church in Busia. There was a death in the village so we were just 11 people as most members had gone to the funeral. My lesson was "God has granted to us  everything pertaining to godliness" (2 Peter 1:3-7). Four people came forward to be prayed for so that God may help them to have those virtues.

I received a request from the Congo brethren asking to be helped with funds so that they can be able to join school next year. One brother from the Fizi Church, one from Lweba, one from Mboko, one from Baraka, two from the Uvira congregation and also one from the Beni church of Christ. We can get students from the Congo if funds will be available. Each one needs about $300 dollars for their passport and $150 dollars each for transport, when they are ready to come. The new class is to begin on the 16th of April 2012. Let us work together and train these men so that  they may go back and evangelize the Congo. Four will be graduating next year. One is from Uvira and three from the Beni team. I would also desire to visit these brethren after graduation in March. I would be going with Paul as my co-driver. The trip would cost us $1000 dollars, that is for fuel, meals and accommodations. I would do the servicing of the vehicle myself. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him.
