Philip and I are going to Uganda this summer! Philip was born in Uganda, but has not been there since he was a year old. I am ridiculously excited about the chance to be there with him. I am also expectant about the ministry that is unfolding there. The Lord is providing many open doors in helping to equip leaders for the work of the Kingdom, and we have felt Him leading us to walk through these. One of these doors that is opening wide is with a ministry called Global Advance (GA), with my friend Ken Janke. GA helps to equip ministers all over the world for the work of the great commission. I’ll be telling you more about this as it develops.
In June, I will be leading a team providing training in evangelism and discipleship. We will be working with several church networks that are doing great work in sharing Jesus’ love throughout Uganda. One of these is a network of more than 700 ‘simple churches’ that reach from the slums of Kampala to the refugee camps that populate northern Uganda, and even into surrounding nations. In addition to the training, we will be joining our friends in sharing the gospel with people in different parts of the city. After this, we will go to Masaka, where we will introduce this training to my old friends and ministry partners and the churches they lead. My hope and belief is that many will be welcomed into the Father’s family through these outreaches, and through the ongoing work that will happen as a result.
If you are in the Tulsa area, we are having a dessert event at our home this Thursday evening (February 28) at 7:30. We’ll be sharing about the ministry opportunities in Uganda and how you can help. We’ll also have a time of prayer together. We’d would really love to see you! You are more than welcome to come hang out even if you’re not gonna give. It would be wonderful to have you there.
In addition to Uganda, by God’s grace I will be traveling to Asia in a couple of weeks to help develop Christian leaders. This is an amazing opportunity, and I’m so excited about it!
Over the past months Jill has developed a significant friendship with one of the homeless ladies that frequents the Merchant and Thursday Night Light. Recently Jill and Nadia were able to take her to a Christian concert, and she was sooooo happy! It was amazing to just help provide an evening of joy for someone who is having such a tough time in life right now. We are praying for more and more power and wisdom to bring the gospel to the poor and see lives transformed.
Thanks so much for your interest in our lives. We so appreciate it. Please do pray for us as we keep pressing forward in reaching the marginalized here in Tulsa and helping to equip folks for ministry and leadership in various parts of the world.
Thanks so much! Love,
Tim and Jill
