Introducing Ps. John Fancin Ibe from Nigeria. We are encouraged that God has called him to stand with us in "breakthrough" both within our own lives, our community of Merrigum, and reaching out to this nation. Ps. John has left copies of his book "No More Delay" available for $20. If you would like us to send a copy of "No More Delay", please contact Ps. Helen Mathewson- see details below. We hope to have him rejoin us in Australia with his wife and son Reign, later in 2012. If you would like to support him and his ministry out here in Australia in some way, please be in contact with Ps. Felicity.
Greetings from Uganda
The children waving to us here in Australia. Ps. Felicity and Melanie are visiting this precious ministry in Entebbe during April.
Ps. Robert is doing a beautiful thing for the kingdom in difficult circumstances yet the children have a great passion for their singing and much joy in the Lord.
Melanie had an amazing opportunity to share what the Lord had done in her life in bringing about her healing- a long journey but true and lasting.... on Easter Sunday- it really touched the hearts of the people and brought great encouragement to Ps. Robert and his family. We were also presented with a special gift for Shalom Worship Centre in Merrigum and we found out that when turned on its side- the map of Uganda almost looks like Australia. The Lord has knitted our hearts together for a much greater vision that He has birthed in Pastor Robert's heart- a beautiful children's centre for orphans and needy children on three acres of land on an island on nearby Lake Victoria where 7 children live presently attending the humble facilities in Entebbe. It was amazing to relaize the distance these children come each day to attend the Grace Community Children Centre and although they have few resources (we were able to bless them with some essentials after a trip to Kampala) all the children are given breakfast and lunch each day- a significant effort considering their cooking facilities and available manpower.
