Being in Northern Uganda, I have plenty of opportunities to let my weaknesses be seen. I can't even go to the market and buy food with the language proficiency of a 6 yr. old. Do I use a translator when I have a chance, or do I struggle to make a simple sentence on my own, knowing that I will get all the verb tenses wrong? I naturally gravitate toward doing things in which I am an expert, but I constantly feel God pulling me into places where I become the idiot. I pray for humility almost every morning, and I can see that God is trying hard to answer my prayer...and this prayer will bring Him glory. There have been many struggles lately, but as I look back on my struggles I see only beauty in them. It is the days when I take the easy road, hole up at my house, or dodge the inconveniences of life that I know I have quenched the Spirit's desire to work in me.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings - Kenneth
(since I have your attention, here are a few prayer requests)
- We are training possible leaders for house churches this
week on Tues. and Wed. Pray for good communication
- There is a man, Lokiria, who has elephantitis from the waist
down and is in bad shape. He has developed bad lifestyle
habits to deal with his condition and the pain. Pray that
God will use us in his life.
had a friend here give us some money to fund that work
but at the moment we have no one.
- Luke 10:2 "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few,
therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth
workers." Help us ask!
* thanks for the prayers.
