Update From Soroti team (Rodney)

We've finished 2 conferences and crusades in 2 different villages and a Sunday service.  God is moving powerfully!  A few highlights:
  1. The team prayed for a blind man and we asked him to test his eyesight after the prayers. After the first time praying, he began to see more light, so we kept on praying.  Then we asked him to test it again and he began to see outline of things, then just the ground but not the sky.  Finally, after breaking the curse of witchcraft, he began to see everything.  God is good!
  2. There was a pastor who had a brother who was a witch doctor.  The witch doctor wanted to kill him.  We prayed for protection over him and for the plans that God has in store for the pastor.  The pastor felt uplifted and encouraged that someone would walk alongside them.
  3. In Ugandan culture, people are not affectionate with their children or spouses, even within their own homes.  They don't really play with their children and the relationship between spouses and with children are very functional and not relational. On this trip, we saw one of the pastors openly hugging his children and we can tell that the children feel loved.  This is a big breakthrough as we continue to teach how to practically demonstrate the Father's love.  The teams from the past paved the way for this to occur.
This week, we have a 2-day regional conference where more than 100 church leaders from around the region are expected to attend.  We will be preaching what is the Kingdom of God and how to practically live it out in the church and outside the church, including how the church can enable Kingdom living outside the church.  

Thank you for your prayers.  We know they are fueling our work here.
