This is Ruth’s testimony, one of many stories of how the ‘Three Stones’ training has helped families in rural Uganda.
She says “Before I received the training, I was getting sick all of the time and spending a lot of money in hospital and clinics. After studying how to use safe water and wash our hands after visiting the toilet my family has become healthier. We are also eating a more balanced diet. The training has helped us to save money on medication and doctors so I am now able to pay the school fees of my children. I have also managed to buy a second hand motor cycle which cost 1,400,000.Ugandan Shillings (£400 )”
Fiery Chariot on the Road in India!
- Written by Malaki & Beulah Dara MV Field Administrators, Hyderabad, India
At the out-set we raise a big shout of praise and ovation to God! Thank you so much for all your incredible prayers and support. It was an amazing experience driving our own fiery chariot to visit unreached areas and encourage missionary leaders with vision. It’s been seventy days since the vehicle became our own. With it, God has enabled us to travel 5412 km (3362 miles) in Andhra Pradesh. We met 13 national leaders, visit 16 regions, conduct a pastoral family enrichment seminar and a music ministry seminar. We were so happy to see 12 people baptised during this mission trip. Below are stories from the trip:
Young Men join as Worship Teaching Team
Four young men from one church congregation came to Hyderabad for a Music Ministry seminar and then conduct workshops in different places to encourage the young men and women in this ministry. As a result, these young men applied the teaching and joined us at Nalgonda. Once there, the church congregation and the leaders were so happy for us to join them in their church anniversary celebrations. We encouraged them from God’s Word and urged them to continue attempting great things for God.
2015 Challenge for Emseni House of Grace
- Written by Rod Fairbrother
The focus of the challenge this year was to support the work of the Emseni house of grace for abused and orphaned children in Phonjwane, Swaziland. I understand that the lady who runs the home has taken into her own small home a number of needy children and cares for them there. The project is to raise funds to build an extension to her home to accommodate the children, a very good cause.
I heard about the challenge through a MV meeting I attended and expressed my interest in being involved. I have always loved walking in the mountains and have led many groups on mountain walks including Snowdon on a number of occasions and by various routes.
I was very happy to be asked to help plan the walk and be involved in leading a group on the day. On the day there were a number
Some real progress
- Written by Viv Penfold
We are beginning to make some real progress as you will see from the photos below.
The land has been bought, site cleared, bore-well drilled, foundations laid, building the ground floor medical centre and first floor children’s home is underway.
Praise the Lord! Despite inflation and the strengthening of the Indian Rupee against the pound and dollar making life difficult, due to the very generous giving from many churches, individuals and a range of fundraising initiatives we are making some great progress.
Phew - 8975 km/5576 miles trip
- Written by Missionary Ventures
Phew.... after travelling 8975 km/5576 miles we finally arrived back home from a 6 week ministry trip. The travelling distance was much, however, the roads in Africa are always 'interesting'!? Especially when we travelled on a specific road in Mozambique that was gravel/dirt road with some tarred pieces of road here and there. We also experienced many road works and detours in Zambia on route to Malawi. We spent 4 weeks in Sinazongwe, Zambia, conducting children's ministry and then travelled onto Lusaka in Zambia, central Malawi and
A spiritual mountain fire
- Written by Nigel Harding - Kampala, Uganda
In March, Nigel Harding was able to leave his pastoral duties for a week, to check on ministry activity in Karamoja. Some months prior we had sent funds to Pastor Robert Olupot of PAG churches in Moroto, received from Missionary Ventures International, for the construction of two churches on Mount Moroto. It was amazing to visit these new churches, and especially to hear the children rejoicing over what God was doing among the Tepeth people. We have just received news that another church has recently been planted higher up the mountain. A spiritual mountain fire has begun.
