“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 1:3
We were so blessed during our last retreat. RAU hosted 3 wonderful visitors from Texas – Delmar Hager (“Kindle Man”
), Dagne Balcha and Otis Fields – who are leaders at High Pointe Baptist
church in Austin. They did a great overview of the Old Testament in story form. For many of the pastors/leaders who attended, this was their first thorough “walk
” through the Old Testament. They do not have an Old Testament in their language. Pastors in attendance were from Moyo, Metu Mountains, Obongi, Yumbe, Koboko, Maracha and were from several different church groups. We received much feedback on the benefit of this course. Dagne Balcha took my Wednesday night spot on the radio and gave a stirring message. On Sunday, we traveled to Arapi to gather with churches from Arapi, Oyo, and Duku, where Delmar and Otis preached the word of God. It was a beautiful gathering. They have since returned to Texas and we are soon to follow!
We are making ready for our upcoming visit to the States. We are grateful for our co-workers here who will watch over things while we are gone and faithfully be about the tasks left for them. We arrive in Seguin, Texas on the 24th of August and will have one week there with family and friends. If you live in the Seguin area, we will be with our home church family, Lifegate
, Sunday August 28th. We have been given the opportunity to share about the work of RAU and I have the honor to preach. The service begins at 10:30 AM. We would love to see you if you are in the area.
During most of September we will be itinerating throughout the country, visiting various churches, friends, and family and then we will be back to Seguin and stay there for a good part of October before we head back to Reaching Africa’s Unreached in Afoji, Uganda. Please pray for Carol and me, that we can effectively share God’s gracious work in the West Nile of Uganda. Also pray that our time with family will nurture continuing and lasting bonds in all our hearts. One of the greatest challenge we face is long separations from family. Thank you for your prayers and sacrificial support.
“There is no success without sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice it is because someone has suffered before you. If you sacrifice without success it is because someone will succeed after.”

Carol worked very hard to put together a video with a clear message and appeal. She is disappointed at the final product as the app which she used did not deliver as expected (the pictures came out in varying sizes and the texts were outside the pictures). Still, I believe the video gives a great overview of the ministry activities of Reaching Africa’s Unreached. Hope you enjoy it!
May our Sovereign Lord Bless You and Keep You!
