For those of you who don't know Peter Charles. He is the simple man in charge our child sponsorship and co-ordinator in our Kumi chapter. Please find his report bellow.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire ACF team and family for their contributions and support to the work of the lord in Kumi district.
In a more special way my gratitude goes to the ACF mission team for 2009. This year the lord has done wonderful things in the hands of his servants in all activities exhibited in kumi.
God proved his presence with signs wherever we went with you. There was order in all activities carried out in Kumi district right from the beginning of the implementation of the mission activities up the last day.
My heart felt appreciation goes directly to the president of ACF (Emmanuel Emeka) for the financial assistance and the lap top computer I received. May the almighty God bless your efforts and family!
I would like to thank Pastor Emmanuel Ike for his parental and friendly loving attitude towards me. You gave me drugs during the mission trip. I saw the concern you had for my life. You were able to offer prayers for my knee to get healed. God has done a miracle I can now walk and run freely for some good distance. Our God has done good to me.
Medical out reach:
Medical treatment was done in Ogooma primary school at the church premises. A large group of the people crowded the place but God was in control. We had 5 clinical officers and 5 medical nurses. The medical team demonstrated their commitment in serving the people to the extent that everybody who came with sickness received attention from them.
32 people gave their lives to the lord during counseling sessions at the medical out reach.. While at the same time across section of people around the medical out reach received the saving gospel of Christ where a majority of them got revival, restoration of their hope and deliverance from oppressing problems and evils.
During the second day, food worth 30 bags (1500Kilograms) of Maize/corn flour and 5 bags (500kilograms) of beans were distributed among those affected directly by famine/ food shortage in Malera Sub County, Kokwech village in Kachonga parish. On our arrival to the food distribution site, the community was over whelmed with joy to receive the ACF team. People praised the Lord; made ululations of happiness and joy this excited us very much. The community expressed that they had never received any visitor in their community since. list of elderly people, people living with aids, orphans, widows, widowers, the lame and weak were the first priority bin the distribution of the food stuffs. Large crowd had actually gathered as every family in that place had experienced food shortage or famine due to prolong drought that had lasted for three months and had affected the food yields resulting to poor harvest.
When Pastor Emmanuel preached the gospel of Christ on the book of Mathew 11:28 Come to me…………. I will give you rest……, one prominent person in the village gave his life to Jesus and a total of 13 others. This is a miracle to us and the community.
During food distribution when the name of one lady (Aduke Christine) was mentioned , immediately she delivered a baby boy. He has been given a name Emmanuel Oceen. This implies that the lord is with the ACF mission activities in KUMI.
The president (Emmanuel Ezeonu Emeka) ACF USA INC. asked the community to join him in prayer for the land to be blessed with rain as it had not rained for three months but God graced the land with Water. The rains started with great thunder sounds and ended with calm rainfall down pour. Since 13th to date it has been raining with very good showers. People are now busy in their fields trying to compensate the lost crops by planting sorghum, sweet potatoes and cowpeas. Everybody in the village now says the God of this people is true and is able to answer prayers because it has given us rain.
The same day 12th aug, 2009, We were able to go an assess the land that has been allocated to the project. The Kamenya community expressed their willingness to support the construction work when it begins. The village committee gave an assurance that if ACF needs more land; they were willing to add more to what they have already offered to the project.
3rd and 4th Aug 2009 we had children’s fellowship and counseling sessions, praise and worship. Many of the un supported orphans joined in the fellowship where some of them gave their lives to Christ. All mission activities ended successfully with distribution of clothes to the supported orphans.
God has done great work in the hands of ACF team in Uganda, Kumi in particular.
Bravo ACF Team and Bravo ACF family we shall continue praying for you that the lord does greater exploits than what we are able to see now!
