Andrew Keeping "Boots on the Ground" in Uganda

Wrapping up the trip to Uganda involved two final meetings: The first with Charis Bible College staff and students at their facility. We realized that these students were the face of the future in Uganda for the message of God’s love and grace.

At CBC Andrew brought an encouraging message about how to keep the spiritual relationship the students had cultivated through their studies at school. He told them of plans for CBC to continue in the Students gather to hear Andrew at CBC.

future. He also let them ask questions for an hour. Most of the questions were about challenging passages of Scripture. Andrew sensed a very positive response from the students as he spoke. The impression received was that these students will do very well in the days to come. They have established their hope in the word, and in the Lord, and have not been knocked off course by the unexpected loss of Leland Shores.

Andrew and David listen as Pastor Herbert speaks of Discipleship Evangelism. (Click to enlarge)The final meeting was an intimate meeting with pastors. They discussed the history of Andrew Wommack Ministries in Uganda. Andrew first went on Lighthouse Television in 2005. It soon became obvious that he would need to establish “boots on the ground” to make the most of the television impact there. Later, when Leland Shores went to Uganda, he met Pastor Herbert Kiwanuka who led him to gather pastors to receive the Discipleship Evangelism course. Most of these meetings were organized in outlying villages. This approach multiplied the impact throughout much of Uganda.

The Andrew Wommack bookstore was also established as a ministry contact point for locals. It has proven to be a very effective outreach. As we boarded our flight in Entebbe and began the long flight home, we had a deeper appreciation for the effect of these combined outreaches in Uganda. They will continue to yield very high eternal returns. In spite of the attempts of the enemy to kill, steal and destroy, none of our efforts have been wasted, and nothing has been lost to the Lord of the Harvest.

Indeed, during this visit, Andrew gave lots of attention to the work of AWMU and had meetings with the men of God in Uganda. My heart was so blessed by this.

No doubt, Andrew's ministry is positioned to be a very key channel through which the next phase of revival & spiritual growth in Eastern Africa will flow. The flow is already on.

Since 2005 when the TV outreach began in Kampala, Satan has been trying to delay and hinder this great flow - becuase he knows it is unstoppable. But through God's Wisdom and leading, AWM is evidently headed to great moments & seasons in this region - East Africa.

We are really praying, desiring and looking forward to having Andrew's GOSPEL TRUTH Telecast airing daily on local stations here in Kenya soon. A bookstore in Nairobi City will be a huge blessing too. Let is be!!!

I watched Leland Shores for the time he was with us, I saw the Love, the compassion and the fellowship of a man entirely devoted to discipleship, A man so full of grace. I listened to his every word, watched his every move and how he went through things with the greatest peace. He portrayed the attributes of the Lord Jesus Christ in all his ways... I want that, I am entirely devoted to the Word of God, I have seen Jesus in someone, I can also be that.. I am a discipler, that's what i have learned from this ministry and it is the command our Lord Jesus gave us. Thank you Andrew Wommack ministries for the discipleship materials, study guides... the Work has already began here in Uganda.
