October in Uganda!
It’s travel time again!
This time, I’m headed to Uganda at the request of Pastor Dan Finfrock of Intensive Care Ministries (www.icmbible.org).
As you know, Dan has been used mightily of God by training national pastors in inductive Bible study methods. With this tool in their tool box, these pastors are able to learn how to effectively teach the Word of God to their congregations, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. It’s a huge need in the Body of Christ—all over the world. I would even say that it’s the single greatest need in the church today, world-wide, that believers learn the Word!
In East Africa, there have been many seminars and training opportunities for Intensive Care Ministries in recent years. Out of the many pastors that have been trained, 16 have been handpicked to go even deeper. These 16 will complete four intensive two-week sessions, studying specific areas of scripture and specific books of the Bible. This will broaden their Bible knowledge immensely. In fact, it’s already been happening, as they’ve already completed two of these study blocks.
In October these men (from Uganda and the Congo) will be studying the Minor Prophets with Pastor Tim Anderson (Calvary Chapel Burbank) and the book of Revelation with me. It will be ten days of intense, Spirit directed study of God’s Word. It’s Dan’s vision that these 16 men not only become much more effective in their congregations, but also that they pass it on to many other pastors in their regions.
I’ll be flying to Uganda out of San Francisco on Sunday, October 9 and returning Saturday, October 22. It will be a 14½ hour flight to Dubai, and then another 7½ hours to Entebbe/Kampala in Uganda, with a stop en route in Ethiopia.
Please pray for this trip as the Holy Spirit leads you. It will be much appreciated, and much needed. Apart from Christ we can do nothing!
Also, I’m not receiving any funding from my church (Calvary Chapel Santa Cruz), so there’s a financial need as well. The round trip airfare is over $1,800, and with other costs, the total trip will probably end up at somewhere around $2,300. If you would like to financially support me in this mission, please send a check directly to Poimen Ministries and attach a post-it note indicating your contribution toward Uganda Training.Poimen Ministries 3285 Ashwood Way Soquel, CA 95073
