I am so thankful to share that my passport with visa arrived on Tuesday morning in time for me to catch my flight to Uganda on Tuesday afternoon! Thanks to all of you who prayed!
We are already in Tanzania, after a very successful and exciting workshop in Uganda with the Council of Bishops of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God. This growing denomination of 6000 churches has already been doing some significant work on economic development through a unique development arm of their church called "Church and Community Methodology Process," which seeks to have every local church completely engaged with the community that it is in for a holistic approach. The partnership with Discipling Marketplace Leaders seems a very natural connection with them and their bishop, Simon Peter, is a gifted leader who knows how to structure and organize for impacts.
We were also blessed to give each bishop, as well as each manager of the development arm, an Africa Study Bible.
Tomorrow we begin a training in Dar Es Salaam, and on Thursday we fly to Cameroon to start a busy program there. We covet your prayers!
