"I am so blessed to know how to read and pray. This is such a rare opportunity and I'm grateful to God for it." - John, Kulambiro-Uganda.

That's just one of the 100s impacted so far. Here are the main highlights from February:

  • ​First Discovery Bible Bootcamps are completed!
  • ​Prayer class with 300+ rural, African women!
  • ​What we've learned and why we need your help.

Let's go...

The First Discovery Bible Bootcamps Are Completed!

Uganda has been quite an adjustment for us. People here have limited access to technology/internet, and for some, language has proven quite an obstacle... but God is making a way!

Even with these difficulties, our Bible Bootcamps have successfully begun teaching dozens of upcoming church leaders how to read the Bible and how to pray.

Your generous donations have even enabled us to sponsor certain people so they can be blessed by resources like The Discovery Bible. Thanks!!

God has been gracious to enable these sessions to work out so far, but there's a lot still to be done. Keep reading to see how you can help us with printing and translating so we can have a greater impact in Africa!

Prayer class with 300+ rural, African women!

Over the last week, God had opened doors for us to teach 300+ women, young and old, how to pray. We travelled around a Ugandan town called Kabale which is near the border of D.R.Congo and Rwanda.

99% of these women could not speak English, 95% could not even read in their own language, and while God gave huge success through the help of different translators, there's a greater impact to be had, but we need your help.

Help us translate and print resources

With 20+ hours of teaching done in the last week, we realise we need two things: Hardcopy (printed) resources and translations.

Of course, we can't just print the whole Discovery Bible and the 7,000 pages of word studies.

Instead, we're choosing certain devotional articles (like "How To Pray Through The Our Father") to use during our sessions.

Our donation goal this week is 3,220,000 UGX, which is around $920 US Dollars, and it will enable us to do the following:

  • ​Create a simplified English version of just our prayer guide.
  • ​Translate that material into Rukiga and Luganda.
  • ​Print 1,000 booklets for future Bible Bootcamps

Plus, if we receive more than the $920, we will use those funds to print even more booklets!

Keep an eye out for future updates and thanks for being a part of what we do.

There is more to come!
