"The harvest is past, the summer has ended, and we are not saved. Jer 8:20
 
A sobering portion from Jeremiah challenging God’s people for their wanderings and lack of repentance.  There is a certain finality about verse 20 which depicts a people who have missed countless opportunities to respond to God, and to change their ways.  For me a summer has ended too! A time of travel, hard work and tiring activity.  It was said of King David, the “he served God in his own generation” Acts 13:36, and like him we can only serve God in our generation.   Like those of Jerimiah's day we often miss the opportunities God presents to us to serve Him. However King David’s example is personified in that of Christ who’s servanthood and resultant victory has become our victory and our salvation.   What a message we have to share with those around us…to the ends of the earth.

Menzieshill High School in Arua, Uganda:
 
A team od teachers and pupils from Menzieshill HS in Dundee visited Uganda with Mission International during July 2015.  Their purpose was to see various projects in the Kampala area in action, which they did during the first week. Dwelling Places, The Wentz Medical Centre, Father’s Heart Mobility, Loving Hearts Baby home and more.  We also took time to visit the Equator as well as Bweyogerere Multi Purpose Primary School.  The remaining two weeks were spent in Arua in N W Uganda where the team installed a water tank project for Solid Rock Christian School. The final trip was to Murchison Falls Game park.
 
 

 

 
Born this way, Kenya:
 
On entering Kenya I first visited an area of Nairobi with Pastor Tom Opiyo.   There we met the kids, looked after by Phoebe Onyango of the 'Born This Way Foundation’ (not the Lady Gaga version) and her team.  It was a great day as we met Phoebe and the almost 40 kids for the first time.  We enjoyed some food together as the children performed for us and then we had some games with them.  We have agreed to try to support these mostly orphaned and multiply disabled children, mainly through child sponsorship.  If you can help, please get in touch via our website.
 
 
 

 

 
Maasai Mara Baptisms:
 
The Maasai people are well known for their remote villages in challenging areas of Kenya and Tanzania.   During my time in Kenya I visited Olooltoto village and was asked to be involved in the baptisms of about 20 believers. Further to this I was involved in teaching the church and preaching the Good News, in Olooltoto, where one lady walked in and to the front of the service and exclaimed “I want to be born again”; in local home groups around Narok and in the Narok church too!
 
 

 

 
Free Methodist conference Mwanza, Tanzania:
 
After arriving, from Nairobi, in Dar es Salaam and staying the night we set off for Mwanza.  Our flight took about an hour and we were met by a large group of Christians singing and praising God, they followed us all the way to the church building and sang until it was time to begin.  The next few days we shared from God’s Word to leaders from around the country.  These leaders are hungry for more training so that they can serve more effectively in their local churches.
 
 
 

 

 
Kigali & Bugesera, Rwanda:
 
The final destination was Kigali in Rwanda.  I spent the time with Bishop Nathan Amooti.   On the Sunday morning we preached at Bugersera Anglican Church and then visited a new church plant which is beginning a few miles away.
 
  Go!  
Would you consider GO-ing?
 
A major part of Mission International’s raison d'etre is to provide opportunities for Christians to GO and to serve God in various ways in a wide range of places.  If you would like to GO, then we can help facilitate your service via our mission partners around the world.  Please get in touch to talk further about this.
