November Prayer Points

November 23, 2015

Please pray with us through our November prayer points:

  • Our time at QuietWaters Ministries in Colorado was truly refreshing and restorative. They have so helped us get proper perspective on the challenges we have gone through, address our misperceptions and the lies that have penetrated our hearts, and develop a plan to move forward in a healthy way with a lot of great resources that will help us continue to heal and grow.

  • Our partner and friend in Uganda, Stephen Emietu, was hit very suddenly with a severe hernia and had to go for emergency surgery in a village hospital. He almost didn’t make it, and then, after being discharged, he got a cough and “malaria” and had to be readmitted. He is slowly recovering and still in a lot of pain.

  • Our longtime friend and partner in Uganda, Symphorosa Angelina, passed away a few weeks ago. She became paralyzed on her left side after suffering from a stroke (see our April & May Prayer Points). We tried all we could to get her help, but to no avail. She passed away in the same bed her son Ben passed away in 2009, after battling cancer for two years (see these blog posts: Ben’s Fight, Ben’s Ups and Downs, Ben on Chemo, Remembering Ben; and this newsletter). She will be greatly missed. While physically blind, she was such a godly woman of great strength who made a huge impact in the lives of many people, including the many she brought to Jesus. We praise God that she can now see Jesus face to face, and dance with Him in her new body!

  • A few weeks ago, our longtime friend and partner, Denis Okwera, brought his motorcycle to his mechanic for repairs. However, the boy who test drove it after the repairs were done ended up getting in a serious accident that took the boy’s life and destroyed the motorcycle. Devastated, the parents of the boy tried to blame Denis and get compensation from him, making him spend days at the police station. The situation with the parents has now been resolved; however, Denis has lost his mode of transportation for the Freedom Boys Ministry (to boys who live on the streets of the Soroti). He cannot afford to replace the motorcycle.
