An ARM Update
Nov-Dec 2012
 

Dear friends,  

 

Welcome to this month's E-newsletter, we are excited to share with you a few testimonies from our Partnership program.  This program is where we as a ministry actively engage into mission activities, to serve churches that look to Gaba Community Church as their parent church. Although we serve hundreds of churches in Uganda, we specifically partner with 34 of these.  Over the years we have established partnerships with churches in the USA, UK and Canada. Some of these have entered into MOUs where we have a church to church partnership with a local church here in Uganda. Our desire is that through this we can get the churches in the West to have great mission experiences but also to help local churches in Africa to have an impact on a church in the west.  This program oversees:

 

1. Church to Church partnerships

2. The Mercy Network

3. Short Term Mission teams

4. Discipleship programs

 

We pray God's blessings upon you as you prepare for the Christmas season.

 

 

Ps. Peter Kasirivu
Founder & CEO

Praise be to God that  Namutamba Community Church has come to completion.  

Located in Namutamba,  is this sister church to Gaba Community Church .

The construction that began two months ago was supported by our partners from First Presbyterian Church from Texas Houston USA  

They also went on to plant fruit trees like oranges and mangoes to beautify the church compound.

Ps. Yiga Charles is the lead pastor of the church and currently, about 150 members fellowship from this church planted on   this land of 3 acres.  Your prayers are needed as the church looks forward to the construction of a school and a clinic.



Bethany Village Grandstand refurbished grand stand bethany 2
 

The above grand stand is part of the camping facilities in Bethany Village. This is where campers gather to do their activities however, the grand stand had grown so old. Through a team from Generations Adoption that had visited the village in October,God provided funds that were used to restore the grand stand.

  

Today it stands more

 comfortable and stronger compared to the old one. Bethany can now boost of it's improved camping facilities. We thank God  and our friends for their kind heart of giving towards the renovation of the grand stand.



 
Najjanankumbi  Lives Transformed
Najjanankumbi

People's lives in Najjanankumbi were transformed when visited by a team from Anderson Mill Road Church from South Carolina US.
A team of 8 members did door to door evangelism in which 30 people gave their lives to Christ.
They also distributed mattresses, jerrycans as well as school supplies to the children in Najjanankumbi.
Due to the power shortage in the area, Najjanankumbi Rural Community Church was also blessed with a generator.
"May God bless you friends for the lives you changed"
