This is just a brief post to let our family, friends, brothers and sisters in Christ know that we have arrived safely in Uganda. Our flights went really well – no drama at all. Praise the Lord.
One of my brothers, Timothy and his friend Tom met us at the airport and dropped us where we will be staying for the next couple of weeks. Our hosts, Dave and Darlene Eby have graciously and warmly welcomed us for which we are very thankful. Dave and Darlene are on the faculty of the Westminster College and Theological Seminary here in Kampala. Timothy is studying for the ministry there.
This evening, we were invited to a graduation banquet. My youngest brother, John Joseph (affectionately called JJ), is graduating from the African Bible University here in Kampala this Saturday. We are looking to being at his graduation where I will be doing some speaking alongside other more prominent speakers.
After we got “home” from the banquet, we got word that Elliot Khembo (National Director of JTW Malawi) and Harold Juma (Director of Missions & Outreach, JTW Malawi) are due to arrive in Kampala, late tonight. They are coming to join us at the Preaching Conference which will start on Monday, June 4 and will run till Friday, June 8, Lord willing. After the conference, Elliot, Harold, Timothy, JJ and I will travel to northern Uganda for a few days to explore the next steps for JTW’s plans to establish a new mission work in that region. These are all wonderful and exciting developments for us and we are looking forward to seeing what the Lord has in store. Please remember us in your prayers as you are led by the Spirit. More later!
Wishing you every blessing in Christ,
Fletcher & Family!
