Things have stared getting pretty busy lately. For ministry activities we have services on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. We also are now involved in two Bible study outreaches. One on Tuesday, and one on Friday. Then we have soul-winning and disciple-ship on Saturday. I just started discipling a young man named Peter, and I may be getting another disciple soon. As for personal activities I have been using my ebook, and my guitar. I have learned several new guitar pieces, and hope to soon be reading music. Some evenings I go to Entare school and play basketball. It's fun, though their style of basketball is different. We have also done a bit of farming. They call it a garden, but I think it's too big to be just a garden. Here, the sun shines brighter and the rain falls harder, so we are all a lot tanner than when we left the States. Trenton's neck is a dark a a Mexicans (the mark of a butterfly hunter). Though under his shirt he is still pale as a ghost. Things just keep getting busier and more exciting.

During visitation three weeks ago a man named Robert Turyamureba invited Robert and I to his work to teach the Bible. Since then we have gone on Tuesday evenings. Ahimbisibwe, one of the men I was praying for, recieved Christ on our second visit. Please pray that he would grow in Christ, and that he would come to to church . The man that invited us, Robert Turyamureba, has been visiting our church for the last two weeks. I believe he has a hunger for God's Word, and also wants to get the truth to others. He has been taking boxes of John and Romans to pass out to his friends. Tomorrow, Robert will be trying to get us into one of the schools nearby. Please pray for him.

Well we finaly made it to Uganda. At one time I thought we would never get here, but now we have been here for an entire month. It certanly does not seem like a month, but when I think about it we have done a lot since we got here. We went to the BIMU Missions Conference, cleaned and set the house in order, went to several churches(such as the bush church of Kyahi, which was quite an experience), and handed out lots of tracks and John and Romans. Visitation is a little different here. Everyone wants what you have. Not to mention the places you go are, to say the least, are "different". Dirt roads, mud huts, and pretty nice people in general. For instance, last Saturday, Robert (a friend of mine)and I were invited to come to a man's work and preach to his co-workers. So, today we went to the aids office where the guy works. I preached to him and his co-workers while Robert interpreted. It was a blast. They asked us to come back next weak to preach again. So, please pray for Robert and I as we start a Tuesday Bible study. Also for the salvation of Ahimbisibwe Chaodivek and Aine Abaine Benon, two men that know they need to be saved, but were not ready today (as far as I know). Next Tuesday at four we will go again, but before that their is a lot to do.
