Reaching those - who would be lost in His Name to be Priest of the Lord...Isaiah 6:16

Our main purpose is to Reconcile all people to knowledge of the gift of grace and power of God in todays world for their individual lives. We will have a discipleship teaching orientation for Pastors, leaders and believers of all ages with a special focus on areas that do not get many well-known speakers including widows and orphan. Today’s calling seems to be Africa, but the Lord recent spoke to our hearts to think bigger…His is a WORLD WIDE OPERATION- and He will not lose what He died for---His people- You

Give and it shall be given to you

Mark 12:41-44
And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the people were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. Calling His disciples to Him, He said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the contributors to the treasury; for they all put in out of their surplus, but she, out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.”

How much did she put in?  All she had.  And so it was also for the children at Abba House in Entebbe, Uganda.  The missionary, Barb Decker, was taking some of the children from the orphanage to another orphanage in Katogwe Uganda to do some missionary work there.  Without Barb knowing, the girls from Abba House gathered together what they could to take to the children at the other orphanage who “had less” than they had.   They wanted to make sure that each child at the orphanage felt special so they took old newspaper and wrapped a gift for every child at the orphanage.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything; you may have an abundance for every good deed.

Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

The children at Abba House gave out of their hearts, not reluctantly, but cheerfully and God was faithful to His word.   Just a few weeks before Denver and left for our mission trip to South Sudan, God put Abba House and the children there on our hearts.  God provided us a list of things that the children needed and desired and He provided a way to meet that list: Bibles, balls, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, calculators, new school shoes, new tennis shoes, and new sheets.  It truly was amazing what God did.  You can see more about that on this newsletter:  April-2013-Newsletter

Abba House is operated by the combined efforts of House of Friends (US) and Grace Global Impact Ministries (Uganda).   House of Friends is sending a team of missionaries to Abba House July 10th-22nd.  They will be doing some much needed work on the girls’ home. If you feel God leading you to help, you can make a donation here

Just put in the comment section that this is for the girls’ home project or you can sponsor one of these children for as little as $20 per month.
