Stephen Muturi, Operations Manager of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda
We had an opportunity to visit a local school for the two last days of July. A pastor and Christian ministry student at LivingStone International University (LIU) invited us. He is also a high school teacher involved in one of the biggest Christian Union fellowships in Mbale.
For two days we showed Tough Choices, Promise of Love, and Unshackled, which are videos about drugs, peer pressure, and sexual purity. The response was impressive. Over 200 students came for both days. Two girls responded to a call to give their lives to Jesus. The pastor was so impressed by the videos that he asked us to work out a plan for similar partnerships in the future. We are praying God will use this opportunity to reach hundreds of youth.
In other ministry news, all our Solar Kits are in the field except for two. We are in contact with the evangelists who are using them. We are thankful to hear that a lot of people are learning about Christ through the videos. One interesting testimony came from a couple in Bulambuli, in northern Mbale. They said they learned a lot from the Swahili film, Ndume Halisi, about family leadership. It is exciting to receive this feedback from people whose marriages are being transformed by watching this project from our coworkers in Nairobi as we work to finalize our Marriage for Life series. Please keep us in your prayers as we work together for the glory of His name.
