This is our East African update with our two big gospel chariots and it makes me tired just scrolling through all the happenings. Its amazing what God is doing through you all who helped us get these two chariots up and running. There have been more than 300 baptisms just in East Africa in this first quarter. You will see below that we have taken on Tom Opondo’s support to be our GCM East African Missions Director and our reason is, we want to cross more borders and reach more areas and need a African brother to follow up on doors as our African missionary. Great things are happening. Tom leaves this week for Chad following up and helping with some doors there and then onto South Sudan with me in June. Then there is Duncan Ojiambo from Uganda who oversees the Ugandan Chariot and who will spend some time with me in South Africa in June as well. Duncan does an amazing job on reporting on the Ugandan chariot and we appreciate him.
Yesterday Sunday 24th March 2019 the Uganda Gospel Chariot crew crossed the border via Busia one stop border post back to Uganda, after a two weeks intensive evangelism in Western Kenya.
