Recent Ministry 

Thank you for partnering with us by supporting us to preach the gospel in the community of Kikarara. May the Lord bless you!

We have seen God working in the life of Babrah. She is a resident of Rushaya zone A in Kikarara. She recently moved back with her mother after separating from her husband a month ago. After some days, the children lacked food to eat. Babrah brought her children to the church and found my wife Elizabeth who shared with her from the Word of God and gave Babrah food to feed her children. Two weeks after that, Babrah found a place to earn an income through her labor. She is now able to care for her children and send them to school. Through our home visits, she gave her life to Christ Jesus and has been baptized.

  • Praise the Lord for the salvation of Babrah and pray for her to be able to provide food and school fees for her children.

The adults have started the project of preparing seed beds to plant onions at the church as a way of supporting one another to earn extra income.

We meet every Sunday after church to plan for this project, and it has engaged many people with work. Our biggest challenge as a church currently is that we lack enough structures to contain the entire congregation. The children and adults are in one classroom for foundation classes.

We praise the Lord for our ministry in Kikarara that just completed its first year of existence. Two people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior this past month and were baptized. Their names are Babrah and Vito. Some of our prayer needs included doors for the church, chairs, and bags of cement so we can cement the floor to avoid dust jiggers (an insect that causes health problems).

Praise the Lord for the new believers. Praise the Lord for the growth of the congregation.

  • Pray for the needs of the church to be met.

We train the congregation to participate in the work of God by discussing the Word of God and studying the Bible in the foundation classes. Some are being trained as leaders in the home fellowships. During our study time, we share the scriptures and talk about it together until they understand the principles. The biggest challenge we face is that many of the people do not know how to read.

Bible Study with Pastor Bryan
  • Pray for the growth of the believers as they study God’s Word together.
  • Pray for teachers to teach the people to read so they can understand God’s Word for themselves.
  • Pray for wisdom as they examine the Bible and for discernment in their discussions as they explore its concepts.
  • Pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in their conversations.

We visited twenty-five homes this month and shared the Word of God with fifty-eight people.

  • Pray for those who heard to respond and come to faith in Jesus Christ.

Alex is a potential leader in the church and is serving as an usher. He is married and has five children, two boys, and three girls. His wife Sylvia is a drunkard, and sometimes she is so drunk that she cannot cook food for the children or care for them, so Alex takes on this responsibility. When he first visited our church, he loved the way we shared the Word of God, so he started attending the services regularly. Later Alex accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior. His children are Young Ambassadors, and he is an excellent Bible reader. They have a three-room temporary house and survive by selling labor to earn an income and buy food for the family.

Pray for Alex’s family and especially for his wife Sylvia to become a believer and be set free from the bondage and temptation of alcohol.

Bryan Warugaba Testimony 

I lost my mother to HIV/AIDS when I was six months old, and my father passed away from HIV/AIDS when I was seven. My father had three wives and a total of thirteen children. Because of our big family, some children were not able to go to school, but fortunately, I was. After my father passed, I went to live with family friends who raised me and sent me to school, thanks to them I received an extensive education.

In 2009, the family I was staying with invited witch doctors into their home to perform some rituals which later had an adverse effect on all of us. In the house some of us at times were possessed by demons, they made us run away from home, and were extremely destructive causing some of us to get seriously ill and sick in ways doctors could not discern. The situation became so severe that we were taken to an evangelical church in our community by our neighbors.

Pastor Bryan is pictured far left with other teachers of the local Christian school.

After praying for us, we got an opportunity to hear the Gospel. I responded positively to the gospel and accepted Christ Jesus to be my Lord and Savior and was baptized in October 2010. I joined that church and was a member there until August 2011 when I moved to live in Rukungiri. Since I accepted Christ, a lot has changed in my life.

My perspective of who God is changed. I have come to know that there is a living God to whom I was made a child through Christ. Before I thought God was what we worshipped whenever which doctors came and performed rituals, but I now know that was evil. I used to believe that witch doctors were a source of help and knew everything about life and considered them as priests of God. Since I accepted Christ, I learned that Christ is Lord over all things even over the witch doctors. I realized that witch doctors work for the devil to steal, kill, and destroy people’s souls.
