2017, 100 + Volunteers for Uganda

These volunteers shared with more than 1700 prison officers in training. What an open door.

I am praying for more than 100 volunteers to travel to Uganda to work with IMFC in 2017, and I would love for you to be one of the 100. Last year, 2015, 92 people came to work alongside us in Uganda. This is the most we have had in our 10 year history. This year will be a few less because I refused to book during and right after the elections in Uganda. But next year is wide open. There are no elections and any potential unrest will be over, so we are pushing for a big year. My goal is for more than 100 volunteers.

What will you do if you come to work with us in Uganda? You will walk with the men of IMFC and share with the people a message, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that has changed your life. We talk to people who want to hear this message. If they do not want to hear, we go to the next person, but people will want to hear from you. They will come to you and ask you what you are doing. Sometimes it will be just one or two; other-times you could have groups of 15, 20 or more people gathered around you. Then, you simply share. We do not argue, debate or manipulate. We simply share the Gospel of Jesus from the standpoint of what He has done in our lives. It is the Lord Jesus Himself who works in their hearts to open them to the truth of the message. We are just the messenger.

Jesus Christ is the one and only way to Heaven

Some of you may want to come but you are fearful of sharing the Gospel, or you are hesitant of coming because you do not know how to share the Gospel. That’s OK, we can help you overcome your fear and we can teach you, BUT we cannot teach you to share a message that has no real meaning in your own life. If you have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life, forgive you of your sins and be your Lord and Savior, we cannot teach you to effectively share the Gospel. You cannot share passionately what you do not know personally! But, if you have submitted your life to Jesus Christ as your personal Lord, we can help you learn to share a simple message that has the awesome power to change others. I have seen volunteers who have never shared the Gospel with anyone, not only share the Gospel, but see many, many people pray to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Days later when these volunteers boarded the plane to fly home, they were changed! And many of them continue to share the Gospel with friends and family in the US and have led some to faith in Jesus Christ. Don’t let the fear of sharing the Gospel defeat you by stopping you from coming and receiving a blessing from God as well as being a blessing to many people.

I am working with groups planning to come in January, February, March and June of 2017. If you are interested in coming, individually or with a group, don’t wait to the last minute. Call me and we will get the process started.

Now, if you want to come in 2016, I do have some dates you can come. Groups are scheduled to come in June, July and October. Most of these are small groups and there is room for you to join if you want, or we could schedule another time when I am able to travel.

If you can’t come, pray. Thanks for being a part of our team.
