It’s A Wrap–For 2020!

 I hope you all are doing well and had a blessed Christmas. We can have true joy as we celebrate the sending and birth of a “Savior” (Luke 2:11 & John 20:21)! We rejoice and now have the privilege of proclaiming  this Savior –>Jesus! 
As we mentioned in our last post, we were going, Lord willing, to be with friends for Christmas in  Murchison Falls National Park Uganda . Carol and I are glad the Lord was willing! We met with Ugandan friends and family at the park. These friendships go back to 2006  when Carol and I first came to Uganda for ministry! Being with friends helped take some of the sting away from being with our children, their spouses, and our 8 grandchildren. Because of gifts given to us with a “spend this on yourselves” instruction during our past visits back to the States, we had the funds to be in the park at a nice lodge and to take several safaris. Carol, with her camera in hand, was as giddy as a child on Christmas morning!

Since our last newsletter some more funds have come in for the 20,000ESV Global Study Bibles.  We are grateful for all who have given. Thank you!  We have reached $149,537.60 of the $200,000 needed for the bibles,container, and shipping. If we can get a better deal from the publisher than what was last given we will add to the number of the Bibles. It would be wonderful if we could go into the new year with all funds necessary to order the bibles. Please pray about helping us reach our goal.  I know that at this time of year many are making appeals for end-of-the-year giving. I firmly believe that in the pockets of Christians there is enough to meet the needs of everything the Lord is seeking to accomplish through us, his people. We have seen this proven over and over. God bless and thank you for being a part of what our Lord is doing in Northern Uganda, South Sudan, and the Republic of (North) Sudan!

Please continue to pray for and consider giving towards the goal of bringing a container with 20,000 ESV Global Study Bibles here to Reaching Africa’s Unreached! Your investment in the lives of these church leaders will echo throughout eternity!

The greatest evil is having the gospel and not doing everything within our power to get it to those who do not have it!

Sowing seeds of love and kindness should not be separated from preaching the gospel of sovereign grace but completely intertwined with it!


When at least 35% of the world; “the unoccupied fields”, have no access to the gospel, we (believers) must all do all we can to reach them. We who are saved owe the gospel to every lost person, most especially the 2.4 billion who will not hear unless someone breaks into their “unoccupied field” with no thought of their own life!
Sowing seeds of love and kindness should not be separated from preaching the gospel of sovereign grace but completely intertwined with it! 

I am sure that none of us will say when in heaven that we prayed too much, we sacrificed too much, proclaimed the gospel too much, and were too passionate to get the gospel to those who have little to no access to this gospel of grace. Let us together press on to make it our  ambition to preach the gospel where Christ has not been named! 

Our goal in our gospel witness is to take our eyes off the “risk” and place them on the cause for the risk. When God compels us like this he often will not tell us the risks…after all there are no risks for the all-knowing, all-powerful God. So let us be AMBITIOUS (Romans 15:20) to see that ALL are reached with the gospel of grace (Romans 1:16) in ALL places…there are no closed doors to the gospel, just some which are more difficult to go through!
