This newsletter was written by Tyra our social work and missions coordinator in Kabale. She has been making lots of home visits during these months of pandemic shutdown. She, along with our other staff have been God’s hands and feet to keep ministering.
One more thing…in July Amos formally proposed to her at the source of the Nile River!! I’ll attach their picture! That’s good stuff!
Now I’ll just let her tell the story…
REPORT ABOUT HOME VISITS.
At the heart of our approach as a ministry in reaching the gospel to our families is a belief that relationships matter a lot! We are committed to forging intentional relationships with our parents that will yield better understanding of who they are and what they believe and ultimately deepen trust.
We do this through Home visits! As the saying goes “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” The more we have extended a loving hand is the more we have cultivated trust and prepared ground for the gospel. It is through this that over time we have not only strengthened our relationships with the people we serve but also had the opportunity for the gospel.
Through the recent home visits, we have together with the parent been reflecting on how life changed completely and the effects of COVID 19. From all this to most of them was a very deep appreciation of how much God provided to all of them during this season even when some of them had lost all hope there is. Some parents kept saying that this pandemic has been the greatest reminder of how God is sovereign and how all of it begins and ends with him. Through the food distribution program by Two Roads, a noticeably big number of our families were reminded that God surely never forsakes or abandon us.
However, there is more work to be done, new grounds to break and cultures to transform! A big part of concern is the parenting exercised by some of our families, it’s very disturbing to see children live in homes whose parents are actually not involved in their lives or a t least care to lead and guide them. Keep praying with us that God would spark a revival in the city of Kabale.
I would love for all of us to continue praying with our families as now things are starting to get to normal hence need to get back to work. Most of them lost their jobs a long time ago while others also used their capital. It is tough but together with them, we will go through it.
Yours in Christ
