Ugandan Churches Hit Hard by Pandemic
I’ve received numerous e-mails from the countries I’ve trained in, concerning the challenges they are enduring because of COVID-19.
Here are two e-mails from Pastor Henry in Uganda. I share these to give you an idea of what they are going through. We’ve been able to offer some financial aid for food. It means so much to them, knowing those of us in the U.S. care.

Dearest pastor Thor.
Greetings to you and your family in Jesus name. This year the world has changed and the body of Christ has gone through a lot.
In Uganda churches has been under lock down since march and up to now and all the pastor’s especially like we who have no big congregation we have gone through fire, even getting soap or parafin for light is a problem. The small things to use in the house is a problem, my self my pastor I have nothing to say because my family is facing hard time to survive.
But we trust God to make a way for us,
This year will you be able to come for the training in November?
Thanks so much for all your doing to support us has a family and the pastor s in Western vineyard church’s

Dearest pastor Thor,
Greetings to you and your family in Jesus name. I and my family we thank you for standing with us in this season of covid 19 since March when the church was closed update.
On Monday our president made a speak to the nation with the ministry of health and promise to open up the place of worship in September but they ordered the church’s to have this things in place.
A.. Training our ushering team to prepare the seating arrangement, ( keep distance in seating arrangement)and how to use the temperature gun and the washing of hands.
B..To buy the temperature guns 2 pic each church.
C..To buy a washing tank where people wash the hands.
D.. Making sure that our toilets are clean with many rooms.
And because people have not been working in Uganda since March even getting some thing to eat is a miracle in the church I lead .
That simply means even if the ministry of health and the government of Uganda agree to open up the church’s our our church’s will remain closed because we can’t afford to buy those things required by the ministry of health and the government of Uganda.
So am requesting you to stand with us in prayer in this challenging season in the body of Christ which started in March and we have been home and there was no fellowship in the church for the last 4 month.
