REPORT OF THE MISSION TO BUHUNGA ARCHDEACONRY, NORTH KIGEZI DIOCESE 28/MAY TO 4/JUNE 2011
THEME: Give up all the evil you have been doing, and get yourselves new minds and hearts. why do you Isrealites want to die? (EZEK.18 : 31 GNB)
We greet you in the precious name of Jesus Christ! It was a great holiday (May) filled with awesome works of the LORD and we are finally settled for a new academic year with great testimonies despite the forced short holiday we had at the beginning. We once again welcome first years on campus and assure them that we as missioners we will never quite, we welcome all KAAYMERS and ELDERS to embrace all the various programmes we have this semester.
We had a one-week successful and miraculous mission in the fifteen churches that are in Buhunga archedeaconry in Rukungiri District North Kigezi Diocese. We thank St. Francis Chapel administration and congregants for the material support and prayers accorded to us, that saw us through this mission. we thank Compassion (Head Office and Katurika C.D.C) for all support rendered to us including the transport of missioners amongest the fifteen churches of the wide Buhunga Archedeconary. Special thanks to Elders of KAAYM and members who generously contributed money that funded over 85% of our missions bugget. We thank KAAYM members who spared time to do the work of God in Buhunga. God bless you so much.
We departed from St. Francis Chapel at 8am on 28th. May. 2011 and arrived at Katurika (Arhedeaconary) at 5:30pm as a team of 36 people. Uporn arrival we were very walmly received by the church members who had been anxiously waiting. We had our first heavily attended Crusade at Katurika and spent a night at Katurika Parish Church. The next day (Sunday), we distributed ouselves amongest 15 churches of the Archedeaconary, while another team ministered across the airwaves of Radio Rukungiri on the Sunday Morning Programme. Another Crusade took place in Katurika town and a big number of people gave their lives to Christ. From Monday 30th. May to Saturday 4th. June, our Programme was as follows;
1. 5:00am to 8:00am; Morning Glory, Evaluation of previous day, personal admnistration
2. 8:00am to 3:00pm; Home to Home ministry/School ministry/Special Groups ministry.
3. 3:00pm to 10:00pm Open Crusade/Healing and Deliverance Senssions.
4. 10:00pm to 11:00pm Supper and there after retire.
From Monday, we reached out to a population close to 9000 people in the six churches of Katurika, Mutooma, Murama, Kyaruyenje, Rusheshe and Kihanga Parishes all in Buhunga Archedeaconry.
1.This mission received miraculous provisions from God through generous contributions and we never lacked
2.The number of people who were registered as having received Christ were 922. The number is estimated to be over 1200, (due to time factor some were not registered) We thank God for such a great harvest.
3. Buhunga Archdeaconary (our mission ground) was a very wide area but we had effecient means of transport and we had calm weather. We thank God for the transport facilitation from Compassion. Also we thank God for the public address system that never disappointed us at any moment.
4.We had a hospitable home-to-home ministry and all homes welcomed us with joy and allowed us to minister within. We thank the people of Buhunga for their Kind hearts, and all the church guides that toured us around the villages, we had a good working relationship with them. The welfare of Missioners at the mission was a memorable one. We render our praises to God.
5. A number of people were set free from bondages, addictions, habits and diseases.
A certain Church leader who for a long time had been addicted to secret smoking was visited by missioners at his home. The missioners gave him a trouser as a simple gift after a prayer (as is always part of our welfare ministry in home-to-home on mission) and he was convicted by the Spirit of God to confess publicly his secret addiction. In his confession he told us that he thought to himself NOT to any longer bring God shame while pick-pocketing pieces of tobacco in the very trouser which was given to him, a great blessing from God to touch a soul even with simple things. And so many others were delivered( as is recorded in the home-to-home missioners' handbooks)
Challenges still include poor time management by missioners and church leaders (especially gathering from the home-to-home ministry to catchup with crusade time).
Favoritism by church guides to specific homes of their interest, non-born again individuals occupying influential leadership positions of the church and hindering the Gospel of Christ in some areas.
we give God the Glory for everything that was a success and drew souls to His Heavenly Kingdom through the Songs in Praise and Worship and Specials from KAAYM Choir, the JESUS FILM pirated in Runyankole-Rukiga, the sharing and preachings and lastly our dedicated Christian Conduct, for which we our selves are not wothy to take pride in but to render all our passions to God and entirely dwell in His temple, all the days of our lives. We apologise for all that seemingly or truly went wrong. We dedicate this ministry to all the Saints of God allover the world. May God bless you all.
