IF Gathering, Preaching and Teaching

IF Gathering 2019 was once again held in Jinja.  I am so glad that I took along a few precious ladies in my life!!
 These junior disciples love going on road trips and learning more about God!
 Rose, Grace, Me, Vanessa and Teddy - soaking in the Word, speakers, and fellowship.
 I am a new creation!
 Here are all the missionary ladies who serve with Global Outreach Mission in Uganda...
Natalia, Me, Stephanie, Chasity, and Christina
 Every Wednesday evening I lead a Bible Study from "Lead Today" at one of the local sponsorship sites.  These teens are motivated to become better Christians and better leaders.  
They even battle many rainstorms to make it to class.  Rainy season has trapped us more than once.
Each teen has their own book, to dream, plan, memorize, define, discuss and review.
I recently took part in a 3 day workshop on how to reach out to our teens better.  Many leaders realized that the "Faults" are ours, and that we need to build deeper relationships for the teens to feel valued and be successful.
These young boys will always have a special place in my heart...
And I love seeing how creative they are becoming!
Each neighbour child made a hat for the birthday celebrations
The "Lead Today" groups vary in size, but the Lord is at work.  God has a deep plan for each of these underprivileged teens.
And already I have noticed 2 or 3 very strong leaders in the group.
Happy hair day... now I don't need to do anything for the next month.  :)
Tea Plantations - always a beautiful site to behold.
Posho (corn meal) and beans with greens - a national staple meal
Preaching about Spiritual Gifts one Sunday this month.  I always feel like God stretches me way out of my comfort zone when local pastors ask me to preach, but I am faithfully ready to accomplish the work.
As an example that day, I gave out gifts - some big, some small.  Some many, some one.  God disperses the gifts to His people is a spectrum of ways as well.  We just need to be willing to accept and use the gifts God has granted us.
I've heard reports since that Sunday that the church really appreciated the teaching and desire to have more, deeper Biblical truths shared with them regularly.  I know that God's people here are thirsting for knowledge and truth.
