Yesterday we attended the dedication service (June 24, 2014) of the first translation and publication of the Aringa New Testament! It was a beautiful day of celebration! What a joy to be a part of this history making day for the Aringa people and the Kingdom of God! We look forward to be a part of placing this New Testament in the hands and hearts of the Aringa people. If you too would like to take part in this, each Aringa New Testament costs around $3 depending on the going exchange rate. We are also rejoicing that we have 20,000 Quest For Joy tracts in Aringa ready to make their journey here from Texas. Pray with us that Yumbe District which has very few Christians will be filled to over flowing with worshipers of Jesus!
We were able to assist 2 month old “Mildred Forgive” (and her mother and grandmother) to go to Mbale for treatment for hydrocephalus. We were told, on this end, that the surgery would be free and our part would consist of transport and upkeep costs. However, when the three arrived in Mbale, they were told the surgery would cost around one million shillings or, roughly, $400. This is in addition to what we have already paid for travel and living expenses. If your heart is moved to help towards the surgery costs we would be most grateful, as would the family of little Mildred. This little girl has no hope of a good outcome without the treatment. She has been sickly and weak from birth, unable to suckle effectively and sufficiently. They may have to delay surgery until her physical and nutritional condition are compatible with surgery.
The 26th-28th we will be hosting 22 pastors/church leaders from the Moyo area. This will be our sixth retreat. Please pray for our gathering together that each leader may be refreshed and strengthened through the teaching of God’s Word. May the Lord be exalted! Please pray for us!
Thank you for all your prayers and support!

The greatest evil is having the gospel and not doing everything within our power to get it to those who do not have it. May the Lord grant each of us His followers the wherewithal to be obedient disciples! Jacob W. Lee
