There are so many things to thank God for this last year 2022, as the little ones say “thank God for the gift of life,” God has been so faithful to each one of us and to the Square Ministries Africa for safety and provision.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support in one way or another, our success and progress in expanding God’s kingdom depend on working together as we share information and resources in reaching out to our neighbors.
We want to thank God so much for allowing Square Ministries Africa to have conducted Theology of Work for the third time in which 250 pastors have been trained in the Diocese of Bukedi (Eastern Uganda). It has been a success story in which pastors can carry out their calling with a happy mind and soul in self-reliance for poverty alleviation of their families and parishioners. The training was crowned by the distribution of 250 Africa Study Bibles with training on how to utilize it in their daily life. What a joy to have a very rich Bible like this in their hands!
As you know SMA has been working with various groups of elderly, widows, needy, and young people in different activities. This year we got a surprise report about microfinance which is a loan scheme with no interest for the money to circulate among the members. We started this five years ago and during COVID-19 lockdown we thought that it will not work but we have received very good reports of how the women have become the pillars of the households in providing school fees for their children and building their own homes/shelters. We will be sharing more about these women one by one along the way this year and we say thank you so much for being behind the scenes in prayers and physical support for them.
As we enter the new year 2023, I will encourage you to continue to be behind the scene as you pray with us and in case you would wish to partner with Square Ministries Africa please do so. Here are some items for prayers.
1. Pray for all activities SMA is involved in reaching out in child education, pastors’ training, family booster initiatives, micro-business loans, animal rearing, providing water, electricity, and shelters to the needy, and in-patients outreach to be expanded to various hospitals.
2. Pray for the teams and individuals who will be visiting Square Ministries Africa in Uganda, praying for their safety and having an enriching experience for the glory of God.
3. Pray for my involvement in traveling and attending conferences, seminars, and workshops within the continent and overseas, and pray for God’s provision and safety.
4. Pray specifically for the GAFCON IV which will be held in Kigali Rwanda in April, pray for God’s guidance for the entire gathering, pray for the right delegates, discussions, and strong commitment to being faithful to the Holy Scriptures. I will personally attend and pray for God’s favor and anointing. Since many delegates are self-sponsored, there is discouragement among the believers who wanted to attend, pray that godly men and women will be able to meet the requirements.
