To & From Uganda With Love (Renew Uganda team stories)

Listen in as we hear from the Uganda mission team, recently arrived home from East Africa. There they lived and served alongside our friends Paul and Pam Hunter with Next Generation Ministries. Ladies from the Renew family joined others locally for this trip to the Pearl of Africa.

Our relationship with the people of Jinja, Uganda especially, and the Hunters in particular, enable us opportunities to commit long-term for the renewal of the nation and making more disciples of Jesus.

We’re grateful for our extended spiritual family in Uganda, many of whom are seen in and produced this video with moments and stories of what it looks like for Jesus to #renewuganda:

Galatians 6:1-10 (NLT)

We Harvest What We Plant

Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer[1] is overcome by some sin, you who are godly[2] should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct.

Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them.

Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.10 Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.
