In ten villages in five days in Uganda, we distributed 2,378 Bibles and trained 2,444 Christians to read God's Word.
February 15 - Weak but Strong in Christ
Morning Distribution - Bugubi, Uganda
In Bugobi, the church is packed. The roads here were a places impassable except for going around peoples property. This place was picked because it is very rural, away from towns, relatively weak and poor.
Morning Distribution - The road ends
Bukana Island Where the Road Ends
We travel over some of the roughest roads I have seen in a while to reach Bukana Island. While it is an island, only 6% of the people have access to safe water and one of the most dangerous places in Uganda to be a mother.
Bukana is on Lake Victoria and connected to the mainland via swampy marshes which a few years ago was reached by piling papyrus reeds on top of one another to walk. More recently a rocked road has been built to reach the island by car.
Morning Distribution - Mukaniro Christian Fellowship, Bwaniha, Uganda
Fellowship of Believers - The Church on Display
Pastor Wycliffe wanted to bring together as many denominations as possible to improve the fellowship among believers in this community. As we taught, the crowd grew and grew as we passed out 340 Bibles in three languages.
Today we were near the Kenya border occupied by the Japadhola tribe. The Japadhola Kingdom is fighting to keep their cultural dominance in the region. Last year, the President of Uganda visited and asked "that the Itesots and Japadhola live in harmony...(and) desist from dragging the ordinary people into their fights." No matter where the Japadhola live they are fiercely loyal to other tribe members.
SUPREME BEING - WERE
Their tradition assert that they have always believed in one Supreme Being called Were. He was believed to take care of the home and the family. Few Japadhola worship Were today. Some scholars believe they came from Egypt and are part of the Nilo-Hamite group (Ham, the 2nd son of Noah.)
Today was the first of five days distributing Bibles to the poor in areas near the Ugandan and Kenyan border. The pattern each day will be the same.
Hi, I'm Mike. We at the Africa Bible Project believe that Bibles are a necessary tool in the Life of every African Christian.
