Motherhood: A Strenuous Occupation

Serving little ones as a mother is never an easy task in life. Mothers fulfill the incredibly powerful role of nourishing and protecting the infant human life in their bodies until delivering the child at birth.  The job is not finished at birth, intense as that process may be. In continuation of that role, mothers raise the children of the next generation. Birth brought the child into a hostile world. A newborn baby is not capable of surviving without a caregiver; God blessed them with a mother. Mothers, including adoptive moms, spend countless sacrificial hours guiding, encouraging and nourishing children into adulthood.

SHORT TERM TRIPS

Some people are available to visit one of our churches and use the gifts God has granted them to assist and advance the cause of Christ. These trips require preparation and planning. We have several possible trips that you may be interested in participating in during the year 2019.

You are responsible for raising your funds to cover the costs of the trip. We require your testimony of how you became a believer in Jesus in the application form. You will also need to provide a recommendation from your pastor or a church leader stating that they believe you would be an excellent resource for our team. Travel can be exhausting, so you need to prepare for the adventure. You will meet new friends and have experiences that will expand your knowledge and test your faith.

Even if you are not able to go, you can support one of our teams to reach their financial goals. You may designate your gift by putting the name of the team member and the country in the “note” section of your check out.

There is a nonstop flight from San Diego to Tokyo that is about twelve hours long. You will be traveling with a small team of workers. There will be a few sight-seeing adventures along the way as well. The expected cost for the trip will be $1,900.

Uganda Trip in Late July

The second trip we are planning this year is to Uganda. You will be living among impoverished people and will experience first-hand the conditions of poverty. The flights to Africa can be as long as twenty-nine hours, so be prepared for long travel. The expected cost for the trip will be $2,600.

The visit to Africa will change your life forever. The people are wonderful and God is working in a mighty way among our churches. There will be some long van rides to reach the ministry sites, but once you are there the interaction with the people will be rich and rewarding. We visit homes and each member of the team is able to participate in sharing their testimony and bringing a small gift to bless the family.

Snatched From Death

God is amazing the way he diverts the plans of man. He intervenes and changes the intended course so that the events fit his plan. Like water flowing along, eroding the soft soil, but when God wants, He drops a stone in the path and the water changes course around the stone.

This directing plan is what God did in the life of our newest church planter in Rukungiri. Pastor Bosco was on course for death—a plan put in motion by his stepbrother. God had other plans.
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.  [Proverbs 19:21, ESV] You can read his testimony on his prayer page.
