Every time a pastor, as pastor Richard Okello of Apac District near Lira, tells us that he does not own a Bible, and that he must borrow a Bible from someone and return it after the service, we realize yet again what a privilege it is to be part of Harvesters Ministries. It is so wonderful to deliver God's Word to His precious children and to see the joy in which the Bibles are received. It strengthens our calling and hope that every church involved with Harvesters has at least one Bible. People who live in remote areas often do not know where to get Bibles, and cannot afford to buy Bibles.
Uganda, which is located on the equator, is a beautiful country with lush vegetation, large forests and a variety of wildlife - famous for gorillas and chimpanzees. This land, known as "The Pearl of Africa", is also the country with plenty of water and large lakes. Before we landed on March 19 in Entebbe, we flew over Lake Victoria for 20 minutes and saw water that carried on endlessly and islands that stretched for miles and miles. This lake is the largest in Africa's northern outlet and flows into the Nile River. Uganda is also the land of the Moon- and Ruwenzori Mountains.
It was truly an amazing experience to visit this country during its rain seasons, but what stands out more was being able to meet several of God’s children who displayed sincerity in their faith. The Ugandans are welcoming and hospitable. Uganda, along with its ethnic value and various cultural groups, is generally regarded as a ‘Christian country’.
Aloysious Kinaalwa, Harvesters’ national leader in Uganda, is a passionate man of God with a desire to bring his people to God through the Harvesters Church Planting Model and Training Program. While transporting 200 Luganda Bibles to Gomba, and 1200 copies in English, Acholi and Lango to Lira, from the Bible House in Kampala, he was involved in an accident and attained a head injury.
Aloysious's WhatsApp message to us was: “I still feel headache, But God is supernaturally healing me. To God be the glory! It’s amazing, we serve a miracle working God!” God is so good! Despite this incident and several hours on extreme dirt roads, God protected us so that we could deliver Bibles to more than 200 churches in Gomba as well as Lira. Some of these roads almost impassable due to the rainy season which meant enormous potholes where we constantly had to dodge stones and branches in the road.
