Feb-March 2012 trip sees many in Uganda profess faith in Christ
The team consisted of Barry Ginn and Sylvia Matthews from Monumental Baptist, of Petersburg, Va.; Bobby and Janie Garrett from North Pointe Baptist, of Georgia; four from Mt. Zion Baptist, of Alexandria, Al. and the leader of International Missionaries for Christ (IMFC) Jim Barry. IMFC provides Manna (food) to the slums. It is a great spring board to share the Gospel.
This is a country that HIV and AIDS have taken a dramatic toll on. The Manna Ministry provides a spiritual and physical touch to the people.
We flew from Dulles Int’l Airport on Feb. 18 to Rwanda and then to Entebbe, Uganda. We ministered and shared the gospel with many in the villages in Kampala, Bwaise, Mulage and other villages. Many made a profession of faith, and we saw them baptized in Lake Victoria. We were honored to share the gospel in three different prison systems in Uganda. We travelled north toward the Sudan border to a town called Arua. This town has a very strong Muslim population. God was faithful, and we saw many make a profession of faith, and we had a baptism service in the town of Arua. In total, we saw 350 professions of faith, 43 baptisms and nine house churches were started. We flew back to the U.S. on March 3.
Love in Christ,
