‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Mt 25:35-36.
We have been struggling with the Pandemic, as it was getting over the war in Eastern Europe erupted, and if that was not enough, climate change of unpredictable drought and heavy rains hit many areas where people are dying everyday.
We have been praying, but as the word of God is clear that faith without action is dead, at the University we have been collecting money to help the affected areas due to drought in the North -East. When we started praising God for the rain just few days ago the rain hit the Eastern part of Uganda whereby several people died in the floods.
Part of this Eastern area, is where SMA has been conducting training on Theology of Work. We thank God for guiding us because at least church ministers in the area are able to cope with the situation through self sustaining projects they have established and initiated to the communities.
We still pray that God will open a door for SMA to have a training in the region where the drought has been rampant, sometimes we say, “do what you can, and God will do the rest.“
In response to the high cost of living we are facing the moment, SMA has started a hospital ministry outreach to take hampers of uncooked food to the patients in the nearby hospital. We really thank God for his provision and allowing us to pray and feed those who were sick and hungry. The idea began three years ago where we thought that we can mobilize community to take cooked food. However, as time went by, we approached the Hospital management, and we were advised to take food items in which the in-patients through their caretakers can prepare good meals through the available services at the hospital. From there a memorandum of understanding was signed between SMA and the Hospital management. This last Tuesday was our second time to offer prayers and gift in-kind to the patients. We believe that God will continue to expand our initiative as he brings in new players and partners for this noble cause.
May the good Lord continuously be with you, as you keep praying for those who are suffering from the high cost of living all over the world.
