I went to to a different district last year with the High School and Young Adults Group for missions, and that trip was definitely a life-changing and humbling experience. But these ACF-Mission trips have changed my life even more, and molded me to become more of a disciple of Christ. Although I’ve known for awhile the majesty of God’s sovereignty, it somehow still never ceases to amaze me. What a trip it has been, and what a blessing it is to be here! God is good!

God showed up loud and big! It was so obvious that God is real, He loves us, and desires to use us to bless others. We saw God and felt God in so many different ways. People were more vulnerable than ever before. It got weird. I saw more passion, more glory, and more joy in those two weeks than I have in very long time. It was absolutely INCREDIBLE! MAX

May I just start with the Lord is good! We've been here for 14 days and its been amazing to see the work the Lord is doing. It's been a privilege serving with the Ugandan brethren and their families. I am so blessed to see how we have blessed the people here. God has definitely grown me in many different ways and my walk with the Lord is much stronger than it was before we left. I’m so thankful for this opportunity to share the gospel and the love of Christ with the lost! The work of the Lord has done here can never be changed and He is only going to continue to grow His kingdom in Africa.
We have been so busy about the work of the Lord ambushing the villages with the gospel, going door-to-door, playing music, doing crusades and engaging folks in matters spiritual and eternal. I personally have had the opportunity to share with Catholics, Muslims and those with traditional beliefs. We have been collecting names and contact information in order to pray for those we have spoken with and contact those who are willing to hear from us again. This week we had great harvest from our evening crusades and Jesus Film. I have been so honored to be a part of this trip, this team, the encouragement we’ve to the leaders and people of Kumi and the impact we’ve been able to make upon the community and surround communities around us here. We have received different response to the gospel as some of those we have shared with have been moved to tears in our presence when pointed to truth, while others have responded in anger but none asked us to leave, but whatever the case we’ve given the gospel – the truth in love, with gentleness and humility, leaving them in the Sovereign, saving hand of God. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and continued prayer

It was a great sign of solidarity and shop keepers were clapping us as we walked along asking if they needed help!
We have requested the community to Spread the word to friends and neighbours; anyone and everyone are welcome to help with this important annual event. To make Clean Sweep campaign a success we require support from all communities in Lubaga Division. By working together, we CAN make a difference.

On 23rd.March.2013 I made my first visit to Luzira Upper prison as together with Power FM staff. What I saw was beyond what I always imagined.
I AND FELIX STAND FOR RECOGNITION
HENRY INSPECTING THE TEAMS BEFORE THE GAME
Upon our arrival, we were stopped at the prison gate requiring the presence of the prison principal to allow us in. We were then allowed in after his arrival. However we were up to 15 plus who went for the outreach and according to the principal, the law does not permit more than five members to access the prison and interact with the inmates but by HIS grace we were all allowed to enter at once.
At the gate we were asked to leave our phones behind and were also barred from carrying any more on us or issuing money to any of the inmates. It was this time that we were also questioned to execute the goal for which we had been permitted and not any other objective.
HENRY PRAISING AND DANCING WITH INMATES
We were introduced to a group of inmates who were supposedly God loving men or may be had turned to God for help. They looked so helpless though they vigorously engaged themselves in praises to God. Sitting on the floor, they listened attentively to the message and received the word with excitement before committing their lives to Christ. I must admit that the whole scenario was pathetic BUT I was so grateful to God that in the midst of hopeless situations, He has provided hope in Christ and whosoever believes in him shall never perish but have everlasting life.
I saw a very young man [in the picture above] in his late teen age probably over 19 years wearing the life imprisonment uniform and the picture has never left my mind wondering how and when he got in there. I was not strong enough to hold back my tears but was refreshed after we left by the fact that we had left them with JESUS to build hope and their faith.
THE TEAMS PLAYING THE GAME
SOME OF THE INMATES ENJOYING THE GAME
WE ENJOYED AND SUPPORTED THE IMATES AS THEY PLAYED THE GAME
If only we are allowed to visit the prisons often it would become a ministry otherwise every movement in that place is restricted and on very tight orders.
I was over whelmed by the joy the prisoners had. This was witnessed in one of the leader as he led the opening prayer with a full and prolonged time of thanks giving and adoration to the Lord Jesus. I was touched at this man`s [Kaka] prayer and then yet another great and exciting time was the music session as well as the praise and worship session. These inmates can give praise and worship to the master.
THOUGH HE IS IS ON LIFE SENTENCE, HE STILL HAS A DREAM
It was then hard for us to say bye to our friends we had shared, smiled, danced and played football with. The football session was great moment for the inmates. This also demonstrated the talent that is covered in there as MAN U 4 hit LIVERPOOL 3 to win a trophy and sports kit for a whole team.

THE WINING TEAM
STAND UP FOR THE CHAMPIONS
The great need we have saw is the word of God in prison [bibles and tracts], and the hope of changing the inmates to good and profitable citizens, I believe God for more support towards the prison ministry to enable us share the love of God with the inmates as often as possible. Our prayer is that God may reward everyone who has been a blessing to the prison ministry that has made the outreach possible by supporting it financially.
