Very few villagers in our area of Uganda have a Bible. The Mandate’s missionaries and it’s supporters are praying that we can spread the message of Jesus Christ by providing Bibles to all the villagers and others in the surrounding area. Our village that we are located in has welcomed the Mandate into their community with open arms. We have the opportunity to give the word of God to each person in the village and encourage them to read and study God’s word.
We have also given out Bibles to the men and women in a local prison. Our missionaries go to the prison each Monday to share the gospel and to teach the men and women the scriptures. Having the scriptures to read helps the men and women to grow in their faith. The Bible is about all they have to read and when they have their own Bible they treasure it and read it.
We have a Bible study on Sunday mornings that has grown to twenty-eight people. These are men and women who want to know more of what the Bible has to say. We have provided Luganda and Lesotho Bibles to those in the Bible study and are praying that many others will want to know more as we share God’s word. We have had a good number of children who have prayed to receive Christ this year and want to provide them with Bibles for their age group.
These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. –Deuteronomy 5:6-9 (NIV)
You can be a part of spreading God’s word in Uganda by donating the funds to buy the Bibles. The Bibles are bought in the area for only $10.00 which helps the local economy also. More than anything else though together we can place a copy of God’s word in the hands of many villagers in their own language.
Please be in prayer for our missionaries and their helpers on Sunday mornings, but also during the week, that they will be able to share the word of God in a clear and powerful way. Pray that we will be able to put Bibles into the hands of every person in the village. That means that we will need around 2,000 Bibles. Please help us make this a reality by making a gift today. Thank you for your support.
All donations go directly to supporting the mission of The Mandate Inc. ministries and are fully tax-deductible.
