Six Church Services & 42 People Baptized

This will be the last report as we have completed our work in Uganda and are on their way home!
Sunday was a great day! Our team divided into six groups to visit and serve six area local churches. 
Adam, Paul, Eric, Peter, Isaac, and Robin each taught at one of the six churches. Isaac said that four of the seven people who professed Jesus from the village he visited during the Saturday's outreach  attended the church he taught in.

Pray for continued fruit in all of these new follower's lives as they seek to grow in and share their faith in Jesus with others!
Our team attended a concert that afternoon performed by the "youth" (singles high school aged plus) of Pastor Moses' church. They had written and produced joyful, gospel-centered songs which they performed along with dance in honor of our team. What a blessing!
Monday was an exciting day, as well. Forty-two people were baptized in the river at the Kamwenge District line. Many of whom were new believers and had given their lives to the Lord during this week! 
Monday evening the team returned early to the guest house to pack and rest in preparation for the nine-hour bus ride to Entebbe at sunrise Tuesday morning.  
Tuesday our team arrived in Entebbe at about 4 pm Ugandan time and checked into a hotel to shower and have dinner. We wouldn't stay the night just freshen up before the trip home.
Everyone was doing well and is healthy! We are getting ready to leave the hotel for the Entebbe airport. 
We are scheduled to leave Entebbe to London at 11:35 pm. Then we leave from London to Dulles at 6:05 am arriving home at 2:30pm. 
We always ask prayer that the flights leaves on time and we are able to make our connections along the way.

Everyone was excited and eager to get home on time!
