With Jesus and With Each Other We Change the Future

April 16, 2014

What we’re all about – transformed communities where no one is invisible and everyone has access to food, freedom and forgiveness, all through Jesus.

Featuring our good friend Denis whom we have been walking alongside, and who has been walking alongside us, for the last 7 years.

March Prayer Points

March 22, 2014

Thank you for your continued partnership in prayer. “We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth" Andrew Murray.clip_image002[4]

  • AMARA has a CAT scan on March 27 to determine next steps. If the malformation of her lung is cystic, she would need surgery before we head back to Uganda, which would hopefully take place mid-April and cause our original departure date of mid-May to be delayed by a few weeks at most. If the malformation is emphysemic, she could wait a year-and-a-half to have surgery, but we aren’t sure how living in Uganda would factor into that decision. Please pray with us for a miraculous healing where no malformation is found.
  • Pray with us for a TEACHER, preferably with a K-8 teaching degree, for our three oldest children – Miriam (14), Avalien (8) and Moses (7) – for the 2014/15 school year. Curriculum, housing and other costs would be provided. Plenty of opportunity would be available for involvement in other ministry work. Please spread the word and contact us at sliedrechts@hotmail.com if you or someone you know may be interested.
  • Continue to pray for LAND for the discipleship camp & retreat center.  We have been pursuing 7 pieces, 5 in Kapchorwa and 2 in Bugondo (1 on shore; 1 on an island) and are now at the place to negotiate the price on each of them, which we will do when we return to Uganda prayerfully determining which to purchase. To see photos of the land we’ve been scouting, click here.
  • We are coming close to a final decision on the NAME of the discipleship camp & retreat center! If you haven’t voted on the name yet, you can do so here.
  • We are working on the enormous task of developing the CURRICULUM for the discipleship camp. Please pray for us in this process, for wisdom and discernment.
