“The Great Commission would be a futile task if the ultimate power and authority lay in our hands or in the hands of those to whom we bring the gospel. Jesus Christ did not make it possible for us to be saved. He did not begin a work of redemption. He did not do ‘his part’ so that we could do ours. Rather, Jesus Christ accomplished everything. He assumed our flesh. He has fulfilled all righteousness in our place and has borne the judgment for every one of our sins as our substitute. And he has been raised as the firstfruits of the whole harvest, the beginning of the resurrection from the dead. There is no more redeeming work to be done!” — Michael Horton

Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for all your prayers and support on behalf of Reaching Africa’s Unreached!
Most likely you have heard the news reports that a small group of American soldiers have been sent to Northern Uganda with more following in South Sudan and Northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo to help those governments eliminate the “The Lord’s Resistance Army”. Don’t let the name “Lord’s Resistance Army” fool you. This group is definitely not Christian. Their cultic leader, Joseph Kony, could rightly be called the “Hitler of Africa”! They have been committing horrible atrocities in North Uganda, South Sudan, Northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo for nearly two decades. In my travels there I have heard many heartbreaking personal stories. This short article, Taking on Uganda’s elusive Lord’s Resistance Army, with its related links will help inform you about this evil group and its leader Joseph Kony.
Please continue to pray for Carol and me as we seek to move to R.A.U.’s land. It is only through the proclamation of the gospel, discipleship, and Christ-centered mercy ministries that true and lasting healing/restoration can be brought to this region of the world. It is our heart desire to be physically there to be a part of God’s great work. We cannot make our permanent move until the R.A.U. Guesthouse is built.The slab is complete :-)! Please pray for our move and prayerfully consider helping us financially. Thank you!
