It is with great joy that we anticipate the work God is calling us to in the West Nile Region. In January of 2017 we were able to take a short trip there for the second time. It was then that, in answer to specific prayer, God deeply impressed us with His burden for the people there. He allowed us to see them through His eyes and to catch His heart burden to point them to Jesus, the only One Who can satisfy their deepest longings.
Because the burden on our heart for these people is from the Lord, we can say with Paul when he was speaking to the Thessalonians, “So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.” In a way that cannot be adequately put into words, God has caused the people of the West Nile Region to become dear to our hearts. We are not only willing, but desirous to share with them the Gospel of God and to impart to them our own souls for the cause of Jesus Christ.
We are humbled that God has chosen us to serve Him on a foreign field and that He has entrusted us with the Good News of the Gospel for the unreached. By His divine grace, we are embarking on this journey and are thankful that He has chosen the weak things of the world and promised to do through us what we cannot possibly do on our own.
