HOW WE SPENT OUR OUTREACH ON THE 18 APRIL IN KIRULI PLACE
First and foremost i would like to give the Glory back to Jesus who enabled us to go and reach out to several people in Kiruli and His protection and provision towards us EYO (Emmanuel Youth Outreach) members.
When we were there we blessed many people and we were also blessed by them.
We were able to heap potatoes for two older ladies who were unable to dig, it was really a great gift for them. One said she was so happy because of what we did for her and to the other man said the same.
We not only dug for them, but we also had an opportunity to share with them the word of God. Being it was the time of Easter we mainly emphasized on Gods love. The love that he has for us through giving up his life for us who were sinners. Glory to God there came up people who gave their lives to God. We also had an opportunity of showing them a movie of Jesus Christ the way he was bruised for you and me. It was a great encouragement to the people of Kiruli.
We were also blessed by a South African team which joined us in this ministry. They were able to work with us and we had a children’s outreach in Kiito. Games happened with them, God’s message was preached to them and also a movie was shown to them.
We really had great fun in Kiruli as Uncle Paul’s family welcomed us well, they fed us and made us to feel at home. Uncle Paul is part of the New Hope family, having grown up in the ministry and is now a pastor in Kiruli.
On Easter day we were able to clean the village, pick all the poly-bags and burn them. People were amazed with our humility and the heart that we had towards what we were doing.
We had the service in Uncle Paul’s church, it was good for us to live together as a family in Christ. When the service ended, we had a big meal together as EYO members with Uncle Paul’s family, it was fun for all of as to enjoy together. I wish you were also there as Psalms 133 says “how good and pleasant for God’s people to stay in unity”.
As our day was coming to an end we had a football match with the Kiruli team though it rained we still managed to play well but unfortunately we were given five goals to two only. The winning team was given jerseys and also the two best players were given gold medals and a ball to their captain. That marked the end of our outreach in Kiruli, but we left them celebrating, running around the field, blowing vuvuzelas for what had happened to them. It was a great blessing to them.
Great appreciations goes to all people who stood with us in prayer and also the EYO leaders who showed us a great example of serving others. I will ask you one thing to continue praying for us because we have much to do in future and it needs you standing with us.
