Well, never underestimate the people of Cornerstone! I have been amazed at the response toward our Uganda Medical Clinic offering. It is such a beautiful gift of love for our friends in Buloba, Uganda. This medical clinic will truly be the gift that keeps on giving for a long time.
Our total is now up to over $60,000, and I’m guessing it will increase before the end of the year. This money will help them hire a nurse, acquire the necessary supplies and begin construction of the building that will house the clinic. I believe God is going to bless this offering and multiply it in ways we can’t possibly imagine.
I wanted to share with you part of the email Brian Johnson, Bred Pub Site Pastor, sent to our folks in charge of making the clinic in Buloba happen. It gives you an idea of what’s going to happen.
The great news: we’ve raised approximately $57,500 so far. We feel like we might creep up closer to 60K as we approach the end of the month, as we’ll leave giving open until the 31st (really for as long as the project needs to be funded). But we also don’t want to promise anything that won’t happen, so we know the firm number of $57,500.
We believe this medical clinic is a great kingdom move in Buloba, and that it will be a tangible display of ‘Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ This is what we’ve been teaching, that proper medical care is a great demonstration of the kingdom coming to earth, especially one motivated by Gospel. I’m going to go ahead and wire this money to ARU’s account right after the first of the year so that any preliminary work towards hiring a nurse or building can begin. We’ve communicated to our people that this money is going directly towards hiring a nurse and purchasing supplies for the clinic. Now we get to announce that everything above our 25K goal will go towards beginning construction as well. We certainly understand it will take some time to have that play out, but we look forward to hearing and seeing how this project progresses. And we’re excited that our teams throughout the coming years will get to see this vision play out in person.
Just a reminder that we will extend this offering through December 31. For more information and to give online, go to Conspire: Uganda.
I really appreciate your loving spirit! It is a blessing to many right here at Christmas!
I’ll leave you with this verse:
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
