Here's a recent email we have recieved from Dr. Geoffrey, our
main contact in Pallisa, a local pastor:
I hope you are fine.
It’s very encouraging to hearvarious testimonies of what God is
doing especially in Pallisa.
Every day is a very interestingday as people are very thankful of
what is being done to them. And thatwhatever is happening
every day in the bible challenge is something to learn.
Somebody said Jesus has begun thegood news through this
bible distribution and this bible trivia is another pushfor
Christians to read the bibles.
Another said I don’t just read forthe sake but I have learnt that
there is need to read the bible to understand
It was very interesting when oneof the winners confessed that
he hadnever had 20,000/= at once even at his church but now
after answering bible questions he was able to get much
moremoney for knowing the word of God
He said he is ready to spareenough time for reading the word of
God so as to know and have more abundantblessings.
Some other pastor said this biblechallenge creates a great
yawning of reading the bible because we realized thatsome
questions are related so they need enough biblical
understanding and comprehension
The host pastor told us that hesees a lot of change in his
Christians since they begun to have and read theirown bibles.
One man said bible distributionhas helped to remove biblical
ignorance from the people of God
Another elderly man said trulythis vision is from God to
empower the church in Pallisa and he prays thiscovers the
whole Uganda because the bibles have answered peoples
greatest needof lack of bibles and God should bless whoever
has a hand in providing for thisvision.
The bible challenge has awakenedthe sleeping church because
many have confessed that they have been onlyreading the bible
to prepare summons but this goes beyond that.
One woman testified that she thoughtshe had no hope of her
eyes because she couldn’t raise money forbuying reading
glasses but since she got the glasses for reading she has
begunanew life of reading the bible and she enjoys it and she
said that this is allthe work of God and continuously said ‘God
The films that are shown are inspiringand are changing the
lives of many people more especially when we show thepassion
of Christ, many people surrender their life’s to Christ.
There are many testimonies aspeople are very excited of what
God is doing through this vision from biblememory we are
giving out many bibles, bible challenge, people are moved
bythousand of shillings they win , the reading glasses, the
projector for filmshows, the reading lights in the rural areas
and the young boys and girlscatechism. All is touching life’s
thoroughly (spiritually, physicallyeconomically and socially- it
has created unity in the body of Christ) andcreating a lot of
change irrespective of the age.
I am excited to have this kind ofmission and I believe God is
still doing much.
I receive many invitations andialso invite many people to share
in this blessing.
In the Lord
