Thank you for your prayers! Saturday April 16th I had a blessed time proclaiming the gospel in Word and deed in Lodonga, a town in Yumbe District between Yumbe town and Koboko town. Twenty-five Lodonga Imams/Sheikhs were registered in attendance and a number of other Mosque members were also able to come. We met under a large mango tree just outside the Mosque. Unfortunately, at the last minute, something detained Carol and she was not able to come. It is too bad as there were 25+ women who also gathered to listen. This was the first time we had so many women who had the opportunity to be with us.
Our meeting began with introductions, giving out of medicines, reading glasses, Bibles, and Christian-Muslim apologetic materials.
After the Bibles and literature was handed out I was given time to speak of which I took full advantage for close to 90 minutes.Everyone listened respectfully and intently. I know the Lord was at work in their hearts!
After I spoke three elder Sheikhs spoke. They had each made haj’s to Mecca (one made three pilgrimages to Mecca). They each stated that they were very happy that I had come to them and one called me a fellow Sheikh because of my manner of teaching. It was his way to honor me. They promised to read the things which were given to me and invited me back for further dialog and discussion. The saddest thing I heard was when they said no one had ever taken the time to come and speak to them as I did….I told them I was very sad about that.
The Joshua Project categorizes the Aringa as unreached people group with less than 2% of them claiming to be Christian.
The leaders promised to read what was given them and have me back again for more dialogs, something I am eager to do. They all were very kind and hospitable!
Please pray for the Aringa tribe whom God loves. May the Lord continue to open the door to share the love of Jesus with the Aringa. We all at Reaching Africa’s Unreached earnestly desire 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. (Jacob Lee)
