Charity is twenty-seven and had been saved but was discouraged in following Jesus Christ by her husband. When we did our home visits, we talked with her and her husband. After our conversation, her husband found it acceptable for her to attend the church and have fellowship with us. Charity is now in the choir. Praise the Lord.

  • Pray for Charity’s husband to come to faith in Jesus Christ and attend the church.

The children continue to come for rehearsal every Saturday and learn God’s Word as they prepare to serve on Sundays. This event has attracted more children to attend the church. Mr. Kampikaho is willing to allow his children to join us and promises that someday he will follow them too. One mother came to us with her two children, Catherine, eleven, and Andrew, four, asking that her children be allowed to join the Young Ambassadors. She desired her children to be involved even though she is not yet fellowshipping with us. Through the home visits, we have also encouraged the youth to join us, Christine is fifteen, and Angellah is seventeen. Miracle is four years old and joined the Young Ambassadors too.

  • Pray for the children to be instruments in leading their parents to the Lord.
  • Pray for the children to learn about Jesus Christ and come to believe in Him as their Savior and Lord.

Karakyre is forty-two and spent three years suffering from ulcers. He was unable to eat any food except for roasted sweet potatoes. We thank the Lord that he has been healed through the prayers of the believers in the church. We give glory to God.

We thank God for continuing to bring more people to our church; we now have sixty-seven people. We are reaching the community through home visits and then inviting them to join the home fellowship and attend the church. We visited thirty homes and spoke with fourteen men and twenty-seven women.

  • Pray for more people to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Praise the Lord for healing Karakyre.

We are training our members to participate in ministry during the early hours on Sunday when we meet for classes, and we also give them opportunities to serve in the fellowships. We have dedicated deacons. Frank is one of our deacons and helpful to our ministry. He generously contributes when we face a financial need, and he is the vice-chairman of our building committee. Frank also intercedes for the church. He used to brew alcohol and would also drink his liquor to the point that he would spend weeks away before returning home. He gave his life to Christ Jesus and received deliverance from this addiction.

During our home visits, we discover Kenneth sleeping outside his home and suffering from a stiff neck. We shared the Word of God with him and prayed with him. We invited him to attend the home fellowship. He was encouraged and grateful that we visited.

Ditus is thirty-three, and his wife is Annet, who is twenty-four, and from the village of Kinyamahwa. They live in a semi-permanent house with their two children, Innocent, nine years, and Daphne, six years. They survive by selling their labor. They recently faced a challenge, they had received a loan to buy a piece of land for cultivation, but when they brought the money home, thieves came and stole it. So they are stuck where they are and have to repay the money for the loan too. Annet is in the choir and has the gift of teaching. Ditus is the chairman of developmental activities. He shared his testimony, he was a drunkard, and when we prayed for him, he gave up drinking alcohol.

  • Pray for Ditus and Annet to get money to purchase land and to clear their loan.

Patrick is one of the elders in our church. He is married to Phionah, and they have six children. Patrick serves by cleaning the church compound. His testimony is that he used to fight a lot when he was drunk and would often be fined due to his aggression. Now that he is saved, Patrick is at peace with everyone, including his wife and neighbors. He feels that it would be appropriate to make his marriage right legally by being wed in the church.

  • Pray for Patrick and his family to honor and serve the Lord through their actions.
  • Pray for Patrick’s testimony to his neighbors.

God has changed the life of Precious. She was a drunkard and prostitute. We started a fellowship at Florence’s house, and Precious was invited to attend.

Precious says she did not believe she could be saved but is grateful that God accepted her.

Praise the Lord for saving Precious.

  • Pray for her testimony to bring others to faith.

Please pray for our brother and sisters in Christ who are seeking, working and believing in God’s promises.

Pastor John’s Testimony

Pastor John started with White Fields in January 2018. He saw a need in his community for someone to teach the Bible and one year ago began to focus on families in the community. White Fields is proud to partner with John and increase the effectiveness with which he serves in establishing a church in Kinyamahwa, Uganda. Read below to see how God transformed John life.

I was born into a family of Roman Catholics where we worshiped evil spirits and the spirits of the dead. Often these evil spirits possessed us, and they would demand animal sacrifices with specific demands. If the particular requirements of the spirits were not met, all of the children in the family would get sick, and some would even go crazy.

I was discouraged by this lifestyle and was not doing well in school. I felt too old to be in grade two, so I quit school with only a grade two education. I started loitering around the community, and this idleness led me to the habit of stealing. I started stealing goats, hens, and garden harvests.

I started a business which consisted of selling the goats and cows that I had stolen. I was in and out of prison for stealing. I narrowly escaped death several times after I was caught stealing or with a stolen property like cows. If you are caught stealing the crowd around you will dispense mob justice and will kill you before the police arrive.

On one occasion, the crowd caught me with a stolen cow. It was a market day similar to a swap meet event in the USA. The mob beat me, tied me up, and piled old motorbike tires soaked with gasoline around to set me on fire. After they had tied me up, they got ready to start the fire but could not find the matchbox. It was one of the few times that I was glad to see the police arrive. This was a life-changing event. It was after this incident that I gave my life to Christ. I had been imprisoned eight times before I gave my life to Christ.

While in prison I felt great conviction, my inner man was always telling me to change or I would die. That close call with the crowd and to be saved from death was a call from God to change my life. During my time in prison, I heard Pastor Onesimus teaching on the radio, and the message led to a great conviction in my heart and an urgent desire to come to Christ.

I decided to go to God’s Embassy Church in Katobo and at the end of a sermon I had an opportunity when they made an altar call to give my life to Christ in 2011. A few months later I was baptized. Since then I have been growing in my faith.

I used to worship evil spirits with my family, but now I only worship the living God. My character has changed, and I am no longer a thief. I have found ways to return to people what I stole from them and repay them. I have also been gathering my children that were conceived with different women. I was an immoral man before coming to Christ. But, now I am married and faithful to just one woman, my wife. I am providing care and financial support to the children that were born from these other relationships.

The Lord has used my testimony to draw many people to Himself. As Paul wrote, “But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.” [1 Timothy 1:16, ESV]

People in my community say that if God, who saved John, and changed him, can do that in his life, then he will change us and make our lives better too. Pray with us that God will bring many to faith in his son Jesus here in the community of Kinyamahwa and our surrounding villages in the mountains.
