Just recently I was meditating on the well-known words of Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” There are four key words in this verse of prosperity, no harm, hope and future. Having wealth without harm is my prayer for everyone. It is good to have basic needs and also have extra coins to share with others. Again having hope in God for the future someone said that it is like “sleeping like a baby” whereby the mother is always in charge.
Friends, time is going by and things are changing tremendously but let us have hope in God for a better future for all our needs will be provided accordingly. This is the hope we are now preaching today! Just a few days ago, the churches and other related activities were lifted after three months of lockdown. At least last Sunday congregants were able to meet, to sing, to pray and to hear the word of God in a fellowship, how beautiful it is!! Yes the virtual services on zoom are fine but it is always better to move to a sanctuary named “God’s meeting place.”
Thank you so much for your prayers, churches have started fellowships up to 200 people. Schools are still closed but Universities will resume by November 2021 with physical learning to those who are not able to be online. We also thank God so much for the “drops” of vaccines which are coming in as donations, now people have different options of AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer, and Janssen & Janssen to arrive at the end of October. Some people are still reluctant for the jabs but many are actively going to nearby centers for the vaccine. I do not know your perception but in all let’s keep praying for the pandemic to go the way it came.
At Square Ministries Africa, we are re-organizing to see how things can continue to move, please pray as usual for the following items:
1. Africa Study Bible distribution: If you have been following my updates, we have been praying and fundraising for 250 Bibles to give to the pastors in Eastern Uganda. Now the Bibles are ready to be distributed with a training of how to use them effectively. Pray for God’s guidance.
2. Training Of Trainers: Square Ministries Africa in partnership with another organization will conduct a training of 120 people selected among the 500 trained since last year for equipping them to train their Christians in Theology of Work. Pray for the smooth planning, execution and resources for the whole process.
3. Pray and act as God will direct you!
May the good Lord be with you as we pray for one another
Love and prayer
