On October 4, 2010, eight members of Cornerstone took off from Auburn, AL headed for Buloba, Uganda. They arrived safely and quickly joined in the work of leading people to know and serve Jesus in Buloba.
Our partnership in Buloba is now four years old, and we are excited about all that God has done in these past several years. As a church, we have handed out Bibles in the native Ugandan language as well as reading glasses. We have helped put on vacation Bible schools and helped construct a more permanent building for worship on the church property. Cornerstone has helped put in a bore hole well to provide clean water for the community, and we’ve also sponsored over 250 children through the Africa Renewal Ministries sponsorship program.
On this trip, our team will continue to encourage the believers in Uganda and spend the next seven days working, playing, praying and serving with the church there. They will spend time discipling one another and visioning for the trips we will take to Uganda in 2011 and onward.
One part of this trip that we are really excited about is putting up rain catch systems on the homes of people in the community. These rain catch systems are designed to provide instant water for families who would otherwise have to walk many miles to have only a few gallons of water a day.
Our desire is to continually work with the local church to provide these simple opportunities for community transformation.
Please pray for this team as they are working over the next seven days, that God would provide them strength in the work, and that they would be swift in their obedience as He leads.
