Seasons of Change for Wakiso, Uganda

It’s strange to even discuss seasons when referencing a tropical area, for other than rainy and dry seasons, there are no significant changes.  The trees keep their leaves and they stay green.  The days are all about 12 hours long.  But when talking about spiritual seasons, there definitely was a change of seasons in October — especially for the Wakiso area, a suburb of the capital city of Kampala.

That evangelism is widespread throughout Uganda is well known.  However, there is great need for continued evangelism and discipleship, as evidenced by this last church planting team made up individuals Dean and Carol Niforatos are discipling in Colorado and joined by a team from West Virginia led by Shannon and Joseph Coenen.  Over the course of 10 days, more than 400 came to Christ, about 750 were filled with the Holy Spirit as began praying in tongues, almost 200 experienced physical healing, and nearly 30 were delivered of demons!

Clearly evangelism is not finished in that area!! As can be expected, neither is discipleship.  One young man was set free from demons after having attended a local cult church.  He thought he was being faithful to Jesus, yet was being led astray by a worker of the devil.  Pastors who attended the daily trainings responded that their faith was encouraged and their skills refined.

Yes, there has been a change of spiritual seasons for Wakiso, Uganda!  We are still getting reports of new people coming to Christ through the efforts of this newly planted church.  Muslims are being saved, more are being delivered of demons, the numbers attending daily prayer meetings are increasing.  Wakiso will not be the same in Jesus’ name!

Please continue to pray for Wakiso and the incredible growth numerically and spiritually taking place in the church.  The church is already outgrowing their currently rented space, and we are praying for enough funds to purchase land for this infant church.
