Clarification Of Uganda's Anti-Homosexual Law

I have ministered in Uganda for years and have offices, a bookstore, and a Bible College in Uganda. We broadcast twice daily over Lighthouse Television, have made three trips there, and therefore have a presence and influence in this nation.
 
I received an e-mail from a man wanting me to come out against Uganda's Anti-homosexual law on the basis that it was prescribing death for all homosexuals and even harsh prison terms for anyone who didn't turn in a homosexual. He cited Rick Warren's opposition to these laws and wanted me to follow suit.
 
I knew this information was wrong and the punishments were vastly exaggerated as is so often the case. I met with the member of parliament responsible for this bill and he gave me his reasoning for introducing this legislation. Uganda had just had the United Nations try to pressure them into passing pro-homosexual legislation in order to obtain a large sum of money offered to them (a bribe). They responded with this legislation in order to stop the strong arm tactics of the pro-homosexual western influence. Would to God American leaders had enough integrity to not be bribed or badgered into compliance.
 
Although I knew the situation was being misrepresented, I didn't feel qualified to deal with this personally. But Leland Shores who runs our office in Kampala, Uganda is well aware of the details and has written a response worthy of everyone who has an interest in this reading. He has included a letter from over 200 Ugandan Christian leaders explaining the situation.
 
I encourage you to take a few moments and carefully read Leland's response. The Ugandans are taking a stand for righteousness and they should have the support of American Christians, not their condemnation.

Changing Lives in Uganda

In 2008 Andrew imparted his gift of teaching to Ugandan pastors through the laying on of hands.

Andrew Wommack Ministries (AWM) continues to touch lives around the world and the East African nation of Uganda is no exception. AWM, Uganda, under the direction of Charis Bible College graduate Leland Shores, is witnessing the Lord's goodness as the message of God's unconditional love and grace changes lives. Andrew's Gospel Truth television program, which is broadcast twice daily on Lighthouse Television, along with several independent television commercials, which also run daily to promote the ministry and bookshop located in Uganda's capital city Kampala, have had significant impact. Leland reports that the Andrew Wommack Ministries Bookshop is growing each day, and has become known as a place where people can come to receive greater understanding of God's Word, prayer and ministry.

The impartation meeting in 2008. (Click to enlarge)The continued growth of the AWM, and spread of this Gospel message can also be traced back in part to Andrew's visit to Africa in 2008. During that visit God spoke to Andrew asking him to do something he had never done before, which was to impart his gift to hundreds of ministers through the laying on of
his hands.

Andrew ministered to individual Ugandan pastors late into the night in 2008. (Click to enlarge)During one particular meeting, Andrew had the opportunity to minister to a group of pastors who had recently completed the Discipleship Evangelism program with Leland. It was during this meeting, held in a suburb of Kampala, that the Lord led Andrew to lay hands on every pastor to impart the teaching gift. This powerful time of ministry lasted hours, late into the night, as Andrew also prophesied concerning each pastor's future ministry. These men and women now teach instead of preach, multiplying the almost-too-good-to-be-true-news in a land that desperately needs it.

Andrew's ministry has always been one of teaching and equipping others—one of true discipleship. Whether through live ministry and speaking engagements or prerecorded and written teaching materials, the goal has been the same, to take the things Andrew has learned and train up faithful men and women who would be able to minister the same lessons to others (2 Tim. 2:1-2).

(Click to enlarge)In order to continue to train faithful men and women in Uganda, Charis Bible College, Uganda opened its doors in February of 2010. According to Leland, “This is the next step in God's plan to disciple this nation, by preparing men and women who can be sent out with a solid foundation and understanding of God's unconditional love and grace. We have been blessed with another awesome facility just two blocks from the bookshop in the city center. God has put everything into place and we are stepping into our destiny. Praise the Lord.”

As you will see in the powerful video below, shot in 2009, the ministry's ongoing outreach in Uganda is bearing much fruit. Hearts and lives are being transformed. 

 

Watch as the people of Uganda share testimonies of how the Word of God and Andrew's teaching is impacting their nation.

2010 Gospel Truth Seminar, Phoenix

Andrew pauses for emphasis during the opening night of the Phoenix GTS. (Click to enlarge)Andrew and Jamie kicked off the New Year at the 2010 Gospel Truth Seminar in Phoenix, Arizona. Many in attendance came with expectant hearts and were blessed, healed and delivered, as they received truth and revelation from Andrew’s powerful teaching of God’s word. Andrew shared a message he called "How to Stay Positive in a Negative World." Andrew spent some time emphasizing the need to see with the eyes of the heart, into the Spiritual realm, and encouraged everyone to spend time meditating on the Word, which is the seed to every blessing.

Approximately 30 people reported receiving healing for hearing related issues after Andrew ministered to deafness from the platform. Others in attendance were delivered from the debilitating effects of Multiple Sclerosis, Arthritis, Spina Bifida, and back pain. Praises of thanksgiving were plentiful as blind eyes were opened and “eye-floaters” disappeared.

One man in particular who was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and brain damage arrived with a walking cane and was very unsteady on his feet. However, after he received prayer, he walked out of the meeting restored, evidenced by him handing his cane to his wife.

The invitation for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit was well received throughout the weekend. Around 200 people came forward to receive this gift of His power in their lives. Words of wisdom and knowledge flowed freely during each session, and many people were set free in Jesus.

The weekend was a fantastic display of the Lord’s love and grace for all who attended.

Watch the clip below as Andrew introduces the message the Lord led him to share at the 2010 Phoenix GTS: How to Stay Positive in a Negative World.
