RACHAEL IN KAMPALA 12
These last few months have been draining, refining, challenging and rewarding! It was a joy to have a good Ugandan friend to stay for four months but sadly she became unwell and hit a crisis in October. This was hard for us both but enabled us to share, cry, laugh and pray together throwing ourselves on our God who never ceases to be trustworthy.
Needless to say, we both arrived at the All Saint’s Children’s Camp utterly exhausted which gave us the opportunity to not just know but experience the truth that ‘when we are weak, then we are strong!’ The camp itself was incredible. The team were so united in Christ (some of us pictured above and children below) and dependent on God in prayer. The Spirit was so very clearly at work… even bringing to my mind illustrations and ways of explaining the gospel which have never come to mind before and were clearly impacting children and leaders alike. One of the girls from my slum school, when she learned that she was created in God’s image and was therefore special to him, said, ‘No-one has ever told me I’m special before. I don’t ever want God to let me go.’ There was a lot of confusion over sin with many people thinking their sin was ‘little’ and so of no matter to God. When we explained of God’s holiness and his standard of perfection that none of us can meet there was genuine concern about how we might be able to get right with God. When we stopped to seriously consider what Jesus went through for us - dying in our place; experiencing the wrath of God so that we wouldn’t have to; even being cut off from him - there were tears from both children and leaders all of which led to many heartfelt responses to Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We thank God so much for your prayers and that he chooses to work though us: sinners saved by grace!
