Ash Wednesday

In preparation for remembering the death and resurrection of Jesus, this Wednesday we enter into the season of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday (February 18th). I wanted to let you know that although we as Ecclesia are not having an Ash Wednesday service, Hollywood Presbyterian has been gracious enough to invite anyone from our community […]

Home

I am safely home, and without any jet lag so far. I arrived back in Minneapolis lunchtime Sunday, February 15th after a 6-hour car drive, an hour wait at Entebbe airport, 60 minutes sitting in the plane on the tarmac without any A/C, and two 9-hour flights sandwiched around a three hour layover in Amsterdam.

No Charge and Challenges in Kumi

We found out some Ugandan pastors insist on being paid before they will pray for people. “Pay before I pray.” Yet the apostle Paul claimed his approach was to minister without charge (1 Cor. 9:12, 15, 18). Because of your contributions I can and will continue, to minister here without ever accepting or requesting any payment. […]

Thank You for Loving Us

We completed our training of eleven trainees.  Next was the rural,  poor region of Igana, about 75 miles from Mbale. We drove there two straight days, and four of the trainees did nearly  all the training. The children were barefoot (not good, since there are chiggers in the ground), and we had encounters with Ugandan culture such as […]
