Here is a  letter I just received from a pastor in a community I visited for that first time last October 2017.  People sometimes wonder what we do and how the people receive us. This letter gives insight into how the two of us, who most often feel “in over our heads,” follow the footsteps of the Lord’s leading and how He has developed this amazing and influential teaching ministry throughout Uganda. This town is in North Central Uganda, somewhat isolated in that it takes a bit of driving to get there. We enjoyed our first meeting there with a three-day Church Planting Seminar, and now are following that up with this invitation from one of the local pastors with further teaching that will build up the leaders for their ministries.

This exactly follows my plan of requiring an invitation from a local pastor and being hosted in a local church – all this so that the ministry which results is as indigenous as possible. Here is the letter, names removed for privacy sake.

Hi, Bob,

Greetings in Jesus Name. On behalf of the Pastors community of Kaberamaido on my own behalf we thank God for His love for bringing you to us to teach us His word (church Planting). Through your teachings, we the Pastors, within this short period, have witnessed the results.

This letter therefore serves to invite you as the Pastors body to come again and bless us with these teachings. You are most welcome.

ALL ROADS LEAD TO KABERARAMAIDO come 20th-26th May 2018.

Thanks, Yours in His field

Pr ______

Chairman Kaberamaido Pastors and Elders Fellowship

[Kaberamaido/Uganda]

Please also be informed that we … have whole heartedly welcomed you and your team to conduct all your trainings in our church premises.

WE LEAVE APRIL 10 FOR TEN WEEKS IN UGANDA. FOLLOW OUR ADVENTURES AND PRAY FOR US AS WE GO.
