Prefield is hard

Currently we are in what is called: prefield. It means we are preparing to go to the field. It can be less exciting for many watching everything unfold because there is no “exotic location” things happening. It is a normal family asking for money to go do something at a future date that they are vague about when it will be. It is counter our normal American senses because when it comes to money, we want to know when, how much, what will happen, the return, how to prevent any loss, what happens if, etc. Preparing to go is all question marks on each of those. Some you eventually find out, some you never find out. Eventually we will know an actual real date we are leaving, but now it is “hopefully here” or “if everything goes well, then here” and let’s be honest, no one wants or likes a vague answer. The thing is God plans and sets things in motion, not us. We simply make ourselves available and trust Him. He decides, He allows, He holds back. We trust Him, both the sender(you) and the goer(us). The sender trust that God is going to do something with the missionary and the ministry; the missionary trust that God will get him there and use him there. (Proverbs 16:9, James 4:13-15, Proverbs 16:3, John 9:4, 1 Thess. 5:1-3, Acts 1:7, Proverbs 27:1)

This same issue happens with money as well. We all want to be good stewards of God’s money. So when someone says here is the cost to move and live and do ministry in this place and eventually hopefully you’ll see some results that will make you feel like you didn’t waste what you have given, that doesn’t sit well with our minds. America teaches us to be sure in our investments. To many of us giving to God is only ok, if we know there is a positive outcome. Yet this is wrong. We give and take our hands off. The results are not important. The quality of the person, the agency, and the ministry are important. Are they Biblical? Do they honor God? Sometimes we get to see results and that’s even better because we know what the money is doing. If we used only results we could say, “man Joel Olsteen gets it done”. Yet if we ask is it Biblical, then we know this is the wrong place to give to. We need to give, without demanding results first. Trust the missionary, trust the agency, trust the sending church. If they are all Biblical and of good character, then trust that God will manage His money well. (2 Cor. 9:6, Malachi 3:10, Pro. 3:27, Heb 13:16, Pro. 11:24-25, Luke 6:30, 2 Cor.9 :10)

Pray for courage to give and send courageously knowing that God is able to use very little and very much very well. Pray that we would trust for God to provide and for us to be confident in His timing.


The best way to show you what we are going to be doing at RAU, is to show you what has been going on this week. The Good Soil team from ABWE came to RAU to teach The Roots of Faith curriculum. This is a chronological bible survey that uses pictures and lessons to teach God’s redemptive plan. (Read more here). If you follow Jacob and Carol Lee on Facebook you will get some amazing pictures of the teaching. I have included just a few below.

Want a good read?

Prayer Request

  • That we would have all funds raised by June 30th. (Currently 19% monthly and 45% outbound).
  • For Sara and I as we try to balance everything (work, church, family commitments, speaking, trying to find supporters, feelings).
  • For spiritual protection for ourselves, our children and our witnesses.
  • For my youth at Matlock. As my time winds down with them, I am beginning to see how much I am going to miss them.
  • For our teammates Aaron and Amanda. (
  • For Jacob and Carol and the Good Soil team.
  • For all the pastors and church leaders there this week.
  • For Sara and I as we travel to ABWE for Departure readiness training.

Please consider giving. You can give now, you can commit to give later. Either will count towards our monthly and outbound amounts. Please contact me and I will explain how it works. Also if your church, small group would be interested in having us come and speak or share or just talk, please let me know. (

Also THANK YOU! to those who have given already. We recently went and applied for passports for all the kids. It was close to $900. Fortunately, money in our outbound can cover the cost. Those who have given already have enabled us to do this. We cannot go with out you, so thank you, thank you, thank you.

Maturity in Christ

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.

Colossians 1:28

Good morning and happy March! I don’t know where you are in the world, but here in the southeast US we are getting southern snow or pollen. I encourage you to google it so you can get the full picture. Along with pollen comes allergies and sinus infection. The true battle is if you go outside and enjoy some great weather or stay inside and miss the great weather. As a parent usually you spend your time telling your kids to stop rubbing their hands and things across the car getting pollen all over themselves. I am sure this is the same in other places with other weather types (water, ice, snow, dirt,etc). I know my middle son Rory spent much time in the dirt when we lived in Kotido.

The verse from Colossians 1:28 has really spoken to me over the last month so much so that I have preached on it and now it seems as if everything I read centers around it. The Lord is kind in teaching us through his Scriptures. In this verse we see several things. 1. Proclaiming Christ, 2. Warning everyone of the coming wraith, and 3. teaching everyone. We do all of these things to present everyone fully mature in Christ. The word mature here means perfect (some translations use this word), complete, the idea of something having reached its end. This is very key to who we are as believers as many times, at least in some western churches, we evangelize and celebrate them coming into Christ; then we sorta stop. We assume because they are in Christ, that they are good to go and that is true, sort of. See both this verse and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) have a second part where there is teaching that goes on. The teaching is not just a little or random, it is intentional and goes on until the person becomes fully mature in Christ. Discipleship! This is, I believe, the number one problem in most churches all over the planet. In the west it is because we are not intentional enough in the global south and the east its because of lack of training and resources. This is what is happening in Uganda with Reaching Africa’s Unreached and this is what we are going to help with.

Whats New?

The Lord has blessed us with many other people and groups that are coming alongside us to ensure the Gospel is taught in Uganda. Matlock Baptist Church, our sending church, did a big fundraiser for us last month and our youth group is planning another one in May. The Men’s ministry of First Baptist Church of Jackson allowed me to come share about our ministry in Uganda and voted to partner with us monthly. Edmund First Baptist Church gave me the supreme pleasure of preaching to their congregation. You can watch that here: Video Link. My preaching starts at the 37:15 mark. Our friends at Great American Steakburger in El Paso, Texas do a missions pie each month where the proceeds to to a mission group that is chosen. March was us and this is the second time they have done this for us. We have also had dinner with several couples who have told us they intend to support us monthly. God is supplying us with ministry partners and Glorifying Himself by allowing other members of the body to take part in reaching the unreached Aringa of Uganda.

In late March we are headed to ABWE headquarters for Departure Readiness Training. This training is designed to do three things: 1. help in transitions to the field, 2. help in adjusting to living in another culture, and 3. to help adapt to existing teams that are on the field. Pray for us as we face and process some of the upcoming realities of leaving home and going to Uganda full time.

Sara continues her Old Testament class and will be doing the New Testament next. Pray for her as she works full time, moms overtime and also does classes.

The kids are all doing well in school. Emma came home this week for a few days to spend with us, which is always a pleasure as the young ones miss her a lot.

Pray for me as my time as associate/youth pastor is coming to a close in June. I have found myself dreading that day as I am leaving a terrific group of teens behind. I have poured years into them and I love them dearly.

Prayer Request

  • Pray that we would be at 100% committed support by the end of June in both our monthly and outbound.
  • Pray for our families, specifically that God would prepare their hearts for what is coming.
  • Pray for our kids.
  • Pray for our teammates the Langworthys. Pray for their support levels and the new baby.
  • Pray for RAU and what is happening in Uganda.

Sara and I would love to come and share with your church, small group, have dinner with you and tell you about what is happening now in Uganda and how we will come along side that work. Email us, facebook us, or call us.

What are the unreached?

Good morning family. I was speaking with a friend this morning and as usual when we talk, we talk for a while and about a lot of things. We spoke on missions and unreached people groups. It was during this that I found myself explaining what an unreached people group. After the call I realized that being a missionary and a pastor I think in “missionary and pastor” language and not everyone does. This is important because we want accuracy in our communication in all things, but especially with the Gospel. Accuracy also allows us to understand better what is expected of us and helps us to learn. I am going to use this post as a bit of a primer on terminology, not exclusively missions, but mostly. Some of these definitions came from Joshua Project (, which is a great resource. I hope it is helpful.

People Group: A large group of people that have a common language, heritage, descent, ethnicity, etc. This is not a country. Uganda is a country and not a people group. The Aringa or the Karamojong are separate people groups, but they are both Ugandan. We often think in terms of countries when talk about reaching the nations but it is more accurate to says we want to reach all the people groups. So when you hear preaching about reaching the nations or hear something about God bringing the gentiles, think in terms of people groups.

Unreached People Group(UPG): An unreached or least-reached people is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance. These people may have some Christian witness in their people group, but not enough of one for the church to grow there. The Aringa people we are going to be working with in Uganda are an example of an unreached people group.

Unengaged People Group: An unengaged unreached people group (UUPG) has no known active church planting underway. Essentially this is a people group that there is no long term attempt being made, for various reason, to reach. These are sometimes called frontier people. The Dubasiyian people of Northern Sudan are an example of an UUPG. These are the hardest of hard to reach many time because of where they are. Many are in closed countries, where missionaries are not allowed. Some are in just really hard to get to places, think jungles, deserts, mountains, islands where you would have little to no contact with the outside world.

3.34 Billion people who are considered unreached. 7400 people groups. If you look at the red dots on the unreached and frontier unreached maps, you will see why the need is to go out of the US. One of the most common things I hear is: “there is work to do here or there are lost people here”. That is true, yet the Gospel is here. There are churches here. There are mature believers who can make believers here, in fact most of them are here. In the unreached places they have none of these. There is work to do here and there are enough believers to do it. Sadly, I think many times, not all, people use this as an excuse to not go or not to send. They are afraid of giving up material things(land, homes, possessions,etc.), they don’t want to leave family, security, comfort, or they are afraid of the unknown. They don’t want their children or grandchildren or parents to go because they don’t want to be separated or they are afraid for them. As valid as some of these concerns are, they do not supersede the command to make disciple known.

Penn Jillette, who is an atheist, said, “How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize?” Jillette asked. “How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that? If I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that a truck was coming at you and you didn’t believe it, and that truck was bearing down on you, there’s a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.” (Source). This hopefully hits you as hard as it hits me. The fact is the work that Christ has called us to, needs more people to take it to the hard places. If you cannot go, and I mean you have a valid reason you could present to the Lord, then send. We need senders as badly as we need goers.

I hope this post has been helpful and challenging to you. Pray for courage to be obedient. Pray for missions. Pray for these people who do not know the grace of our Lord Jesus. Pray and ask God to send you or to help you send. Pray for us, the Langworthys, and the Lees. Pray for the Aringa. Pray that we would be at 100% in both our monthly and outbound support requirements. Help us reach our goals so we can go to Uganda and work with the Aringa.

17% monthly. Every $100 month that is committed gives us a percent more. You can commit to give now and start at a later date, but you will need to let me know now so ABWE can count that towards our support.

43% Outbound. Every $1000 that is committed gives us a percent more.

Jesus cannot be stopped

” And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Matthew 16:17-19

Jesus will not be stopped. Jesus cannot be stopped. There is no power, no government, no false religion, no effort of human will that can stop Jesus from carrying out His plans to see His name proclaimed amongst all peoples, tribes, and tongues. The church is the instrument which Jesus uses to carry out his mission. It cannot be stopped because of Him who is King of the Universe.

Even in places where governments and religions say you cannot follow the Christ, they cannot stop the Spirit of God from His work. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

These pictures are of new believers in Northern Sudan. They are first generation believers. These are unreached peoples, like the Aringa we will be working with in Uganda. Our Lord Jesus, despite man saying you are not welcome here, is saving people. This is why we want to go to Uganda and why we need your support. We want to take part in what is happening in Africa. There is no more urgent task in the world. Look at the pictures and understand what is happening. These people who were dead in sin and lost in darkness have awoken to the light of the King. There is no church there, and now God is building his body there through these people. It is a miracle! Take a moment to praise God for what He has done and pray for these new brothers and sisters.

These believers have gotten Arabic Bibles and materials from Reaching Africa’s Unreached. It is hard to get Christian materials in Africa, so this is massive thing for these people. There are also believers from Northern Sudan who live in the refugee camps that RAU has been able to teach and disciple that can now go back to their home and carry out the great commission. Rural pastors and teachers from Uganda, South Sudan, and Northern Sudan need teaching and discipling so that they can go and reach their people with the Good News of Christ.

Monthly we are at 17%.

Outbound (onetime) we are at 43%

We need to be at 100% in both by the end of June. Will you help? You can give a one time gift or you can partner monthly. There is not amount to small nor to big. If you plan to give but want to wait until we leave, let me know and we can count that towards our monthly support.

Please give here:

Email me:

“Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Hebrews 13:20-21

Beautiful Things

11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

Revelation 5:11-14

The process of getting missionaries to the field is a long one and can be hard on the family going and frustrating to the ones watching. Its hard to the family because they are waiting on funds, training, clearances, all kinds of things. It is hard on the ones watching because they constantly are hearing that so and so needs support to go, so and so is almost there. The temptation can be to just see someone asking for money or even to get a bad taste for missions. The reality is that so much is happening in the background while a family raises support. By background I mean, wherever they are going, things are still happening, good or bad, people are being saved to heaven or lost to hell. The need for the individual or family is just as great if not greater because they are not there yet and at the end of the day church work requires the body of Christ to make it happen. Missions is church work. The local church sends, believers(the body, local and universal) supports in prayer and finances. Missionaries cannot go if people do not send and provide. It cannot wait till they get there, as they never will if you don’t get them there, and any amount is what they need(never to small or to much). We pray for your support and cherish it.

While we are raising support, what is happening in Uganda?

Please take a few minutes to watch the videos below. They will give a good idea of what is happening in Uganda right now.

This is where we are going to work.
Just yesterday there was a big Youth conference in the Yumbe District. You can hear them sing to Yahweh.
Our work will not be limited to Uganda, but will stretch to Northern Sudan
Hear from Jacob and Carol directly on the need for help.

Last Chances

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We watch the end of 2022 and the start of 2023. It is a time of looking back and looking forward. As we look to the end of 2022 it is exciting to be able to see the many things God has done in our family’s lives this year and the massive changes He is going to do next year as we plan to leave the US and make a new home in Uganda.


Monthly Support is at 16%

Monthly support is what keeps us on the field. This is our ministry funds, rent, kids education, insurance, and salary. This is for people who are giving monthly to the work we will be doing in Uganda. There is not a limit on how much you give, be it $25.00 or $1000.00. If you want to give to this fund, but want to start closer to when we leave or after we leave you can let me know and we can count your commitment now.

Outbound(moving) is at 33%

This fund covers all the cost that are needed to move us to Uganda and get us setup, such as, buying a vehicle, airplane tickets, housing setup, etc. This is needed to get us there and then no more. Our vehicle consist of about half of this. We need to purchase a heavy duty Land Cruiser so that we are able to handle the roads and get to some of the remoter areas in the Metu Mountains.


  • November 2022: We want to be at 10% Monthly / 18% Outbound –Completed!

  • January 2023: We want to be at 25% Monthly/Outbound

  • March 2023: We want to be at 50% Monthly/Outbound

  • June 2023: We want to be at 100% Monthly/Outbound.

    June 30th: Last day on staff at Matlock.

  • July 2023: Missions conference / ABWE Training classes.

  • August/September 2023: Visit family and leave for Uganda.

Needless to say there is not a lot of time between now and August/September, let alone June. Lord willing all of these goals will be met. We are committed to going, are you willing to give to help us get there? At the end of the day it take people willing to send in order for us to go. We want to serve and are willing to go to where others either cant or wont. Will you please consider giving towards the work that is going on in Uganda?

Here in the US, the holidays have been great, we have gotten to hang out with family and see a few people we haven’t seen in a while. It was bittersweet as it, possibly, was our last Christmas in America. This is the hard part about waiting to raise support so we can go, everything is a last. Last birthdays, holidays, etc. It is hard on our kids and it is hard on Sara and I, as we have to plan for going with big things, like selling our house, throwing away things, etc. Pray for us.

We got visit from our team mates yesterday. They got some extra time off work and were able to make the visit all the way from Iowa (we are in SC).

Pictured: (Pryce’s)Ben, Sara, Emma, Nora, Aniyah, Liam, Rory, Izyiah, Kaleena. (Langworthy’s) Aaron, Amanda, Elijah, Issac, David.

In Uganda, Jacob and Carol have been very busy catching up from being in the US. They have been giving out ESV Bibles, attending graduation ceremonies in the refugee camps, visiting and celebrating with rural congregations, and they spent Christmas in the Metu Mountains with the local church. They even had three men come to the gate looking to find out how they become Christians! Please take a minute to go and read what is happening and what we(with your support!) will be apart of.

There is so much to do and so little time. Jesus stepped into time and was born as the lamb we all needed. He was born to die so that we could live. He went obediently to the cross, suffered and bore our sins so that in him we could be the righteousness of God (1 Peter 2:24/2 Cor. 5:21). He was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven at the right hand of the Father and all authority has been given to Him (Matt 28:18-20, John 17:2). We have the great hope of the world and we have been tasked with sharing that message with peoples all over the world. Help us do that. Send us, we will going. May the Lord bless you and keep you and make you bold and confident in his ability to use weak people.


The Bible teaches an act called discipleship. One believer intentionally invest in another with the purpose of replicating what has been taught to them. In many ways giving financially is very similar. One person (usually a believer) intentionally invest or gives to the work of another.

Here are some facts.

This chart comes from:

Billions of dollars go to missions. Of the billions that go out only about 1% goes to reach unreached people groups.

When you give to us you are giving to that 1%. Our goal is to reach part of that unreached group. The Aringa are the last UPG in Uganda. They are traditionally Muslims, but there are some Christians among them.

At the end of the day, not everyone can move to rural Uganda. Some wont go, some cannot, and some will. We will and we can, but it does take those who are willing to send. One time gifts and monthly giving is what enables us to get there. If you have given, thank you! If you have not, please consider doing so. If you have give one time, consider becoming a monthly supporter.

We are currently at 11% of our committed monthly support and 22% of our outbound(one time moving) support. We are required to be 100% in both to be cleared to leave. We want to be 100% by June of 2023 allowing us to leave in August or September.

Giving Myths/Questions

*Do I have to give for the whole time you are there? No, you give as long as you feel led. I do think once you see what is going on in Moyo you will want to give.

*What I can afford to give is not enough to help. When giving to the Lord there is no such thing as to little. Remember the widow’s giving(Mark 12:41-44) it is not the amount its the heart of the giver. God can take any amount and do mighty things with it. $25 a month will get us a quarter of a 1% closer. $50 a month will get us half a !% closer. $100 a month will get us a 1% closer.

*What if I want to wait and start till you get there or leave for there? You can. Abwe will count all committed monthly support towards our goal even if it doesn’t start till later.

*How do I know you will be able to do what you say you are going to do? First, ABWE has been around for over 95+ years. They also partner with over 500 other like-minded churches and assist more than 1,000 missionaries. Second, Reaching Africa’s Unreached has been in Uganda for over a decade and is already working with the Aringa, the Ma’adi, the people around the Metu mountains, refugees from South Sudan and The Republic of (North) Sudan. So we are not going alone and we are going in to help in the work that is already going on.

*How do I know you will go? We get asked this a lot believe it or not. We will go and can go because we have before. We, as a family, are 100% confident in our ability to go. Not only that, this is a path the Lord has opened up for us and short of Him closing it in an undeniable way, we are going. God has given us a sending church, a partnering mission organization, teammates (The Langworthys), and an established ministry in Uganda. This is as close to a for sure thing as there is.

Here’s where we are.

Hello everyone! Its been a pretty wild October for the Pryce tribe. We have been super busy with classes, support raising and doctor visits. We also have some timeline plans in place that we are going to share and try to accomplish, Lord willing. This is gonna be a long one.


So we have had two ER visits this month. Leena stuck her foot in a bike wheel while riding with Nora, after being told not to, and then Liam dislocated his knee while hanging out with his friends. Both of them ended up with a brace on.

Leena’s accident was right at the end of September and thanksfully she is now all healed up and boot free. Liam hurt his knee towards the end of October and will be in his brace for a while. Praise God he did not break anything or tear anything, so once we are able to get into the doctors office we should have an idea of how long we are looking at.

Emma and Mammie(Edie) came down a couple of weeks ago and helped Sara paint our upstairs bathroom. I have since painted the upstairs hallway. We are planning on selling our house next year, Lord willing, before we go to Uganda so we are prepping for that by doing around the house fixing and painting. We also will have not one, but two ABWE missionaries come and stay with us in November, which is incredibly exciting. Earlier this month(October) Ron and Ann Washer (Ron is the Executive Director of Africa with ABWE) came through town just to have lunch with us. ABWE has loved on us so much during our time with them, through phone calls, video chats, and visits. They really are a loving agency. If you are considering missions, let me encourage you to check them out:

Sara and I have just finished Good Soil training, which is an Evangelism and Discipleship curriculum designed by ABWE. It is some of the materials we will be using in Uganda.

Sara is continuing through her Methods of Bible Study class and is starting a Missional theology class in November with our teammate Amanda. Pray for them as they balance these classes/work/family life, etc.

We got to visit with one of our supporting churches for a Reformation Day Party and had a great time! We got a lesson in why the reformation was important and got to hear some profiles of different reformers and what they did with great persecution. We love Grace Covenant Church!


    Praise the Lord, God has been very good to us this month. Currently we are sitting at 10% monthly and 18% in our outbound(moving fund). That is a 2% increase in our monthly support and a 11% increase in our outbound support! Our official last day at Matlock, as paid staff, is on June 30th, 2023. We are wanting, Lord willing, to be at 100% support in both monthly and outbound by then. We would not be leaving then as we have a few more training events we need to attend in July, but it is possible we could leave by August or September.

    So what does that mean for us and for you? For us it means we need to find partners, both those who would give to get us to Uganda(one time) and those who will give to keep in Uganda(monthly). We need 92 more monthly partners at $100 a month to get us to our monthly goal. These are those who will help us to live and work in Uganda, reach the unreached Aringa people(, teach and disciple rural pastors, and share the Gospel in the Metu Mountains and other areas around Moyo. Giving monthly is a deeper commitment. One time giving is necessary and important, but monthly is deeper. Giving monthly is investing in something. In this case, it is investing in kingdom work, that God is currently doing and will continue to do. The work we are going to help with has been going on for the last 10 years(we can show you pictures and videos), which has been laying foundation and preparing. This is a good investment, because you can see fruit from it already with just a couple workers on the ground. Imagine with families of workers what could be done!

    From you we need investors. We need people who are willing to trust what God is doing in Moyo and will trust that God will take that monthly amount and do great things with it. If you are already giving, thank you. If not, pray and consider giving. The Lord will use your gift for kingdom work, that is not a question. If you would like to give, but do not want to start until we get to Uganda, then let me know and your commitment will count towards our monthly goal. If you need to change your amount down the road you can do that to. No amount is to small and no amount is to big. If you have questions or concerns then reach out to me ( and lets chat.

    Never a doubt

    ‘There are three great truths: 1st, That there is a God; 2nd, That he has spoken to us in the Bible; 3rd, That he means what he says.’

    Hudson Taylor

     When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” John 11:43

    The story of Jesus raising Lazarus is one of my favorite moments in the Bible. Can you imagine what that would have looked like? What would it look like to the people watching? What would it have been like for Lazarus? Jesus walks to the tomb of Lazarus, who has been dead for four days and commands that the stone be moved and then with the authority and sovereignty of God Almighty he commands Lazarus to come out. Then, “The man who had died came out,”. Never a doubt. Jesus knew Lazarus would come out. Read his prayer and you can see the confidence of Jesus, who knew he was God and knew this would and could be accomplished. It is only ever man who doubts.

    God means what He says.  God never doubts what he says, nor questions the authority or the seriousness of it.  It is only man who doubts.  Believers we must be about our Father’s business, we must know that God has called us to reach all peoples with the Gospel of Christ. We are to bring the light to those in darkness.  2 Corinthians 4:5-6 says, “For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. “ We must understand that we are guaranteed victory. God knows sinners will be saved. We know, based on what we are told in the Bible, that “you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation,” (Rev. 5:9). We doubt our ability to reach people in the name of Christ, but God never does. We can be fearless in our work for the kingdom and for God’s ability to use us. What better use of our time could there ever be?

    “The motive is this, ‘Oh! that God could be glorified, that Jesus might see the reward of his sufferings! Oh! that sinners might be saved, so that God might have new tongues to praise him, new hearts to love him! Oh! that sin were put an end to, that the holiness, righteousness, mercy, and power of God might be magnified!’ This is the way to pray; when thy prayers seek God’s glory, it is God’s glory to answer thy prayers.”

    – Charles H. Spurgeon

    Jacob and Carol Lee, our team leaders from Reaching Africa’s Unreached, have been traveling all over the US sharing all that God has been doing in Uganda.  They have gotten to spend time with their grandkids and their children.  Jacob recently preached at a supporting church on the God who opens. Listen below and be encouraged.

    Jacob starts around the 30 minute mark.

    When Jacob and Carol got back to the states, they sent Sara and I a huge box of books.  These were all books that had impacted them.  The first I read was, The Missionary Theologian, by E.D. Burns. It was brilliant.  After reading it, I emailed Dr. Burns and to my joy, he emailed me back and offered to chat on the phone.  I spent a good hour on the phone with him.  What a blessing that was.  We discussed how our missiology comes from our theology.  Our theology comes from our understanding the doctrines of God (salvation, atonement etc.). He encouraged me to dig into those doctrines on a deep level and to really understand them.  Understanding those would bring the biggest impact on the field.  You can read more about him here:

    The Lord Goes First

    How hopeful are you? The task of reaching the nations seems overwhelming and daunting, yet the Lord goes first. He has accomplished all the hard work. He has won the victory already. Having assurance in what Christ has already accomplished takes the burden off of ourselves. We want many times to measure up, to earn God’s favor, or to make sure he loves us. Yet, we cant.

     My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

    1 John 2:1-2

    When we put faith in Christ our sins are transferred to Jesus and Jesus’ righteousness is transferred to us! This means that when the Father looks at us he sees us as if we were in perfect obedience to Him! We don’t need to measure up as we already are in perfect standing thanks to Jesus! This is complete freedom. Here is the morning devotion from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening that I read yesterday that encouraged me, may it do the same to you.

         “The breaker is come up before them.”
         —Micah 2:13

    Inasmuch as Jesus has gone before us, things remain not as they would have been had he never passed that way. He has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. Cheer up now thou faint-hearted warrior. Not only has Christ travelled the road, but he has slain thine enemies. Dost thou dread sin? He has nailed it to his cross. Dost thou fear death? He has been the death of Death. Art thou afraid of hell? He has barred it against the advent of any of his children; they shall never see the gulf of perdition. Whatever foes may be before the Christian, they are all overcome. There are lions, but their teeth are broken; there are serpents, but their fangs are extracted; there are rivers, but they are bridged or fordable; there are flames, but we wear that matchless garment which renders us invulnerable to fire. The sword that has been forged against us is already blunted; the instruments of war which the enemy is preparing have already lost their point. God has taken away in the person of Christ all the power that anything can have to hurt us. Well then, the army may safely march on, and you may go joyously along your journey, for all your enemies are conquered beforehand. What shall you do but march on to take the prey? They are beaten, they are vanquished; all you have to do is to divide the spoil. You shall, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight shall be with a vanquished foe. His head is broken; he may attempt to injure you, but his strength shall not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory shall be easy, and your treasure shall be beyond all count.

         “Proclaim aloud the Saviour’s fame,
         Who bears the Breaker’s wond’rous name;
         Sweet name; and it becomes him well,
         Who breaks down earth, sin, death, and hell.”

    C. H. Spurgeon, Morning and Evening: Daily Readings (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1896).

    Hope. Consider partnering with us in our work in Uganda. We are currently at 5% of our monthly support.

    We want to see this hope given to the Aringa and other groups of Uganda. We want to see rural pastors trained and discipled to share this hope, this freedom with their churches and peoples. In a place were suffering and poverty rule, where prosperity gospel destroys, the only hope is in Jesus Christ.
