my life, my passion, my joy

NEWS – August 2012

“And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up” (James. 5:15).

Malaria

This has been a hard month with many people sick with malaria. We had two serious cases, one Madelena who was also 3 months pregnant and Afara, one of our disciples. I was grateful for all those that prayed with us. Our young disciples also prayed for their friend Afara and saw how God healed him. What was interesting is that the community observed how we used medicine but also how we prayed to God for their healing. You can see the before and after pictures of both patients – all glory to God! At the end of this month I too got malaria and had to start treatment. The chief and other leaders who came to visit to see how I was, told me that we must pray to God and He will heal me! I smiled to myself and thought it is true they are seeing and learning and are now reminding me to trust the Lord to help me recover and He will raise me up! All glory to Him.

Our water tank is full!

I was very thankful for Willi and Clay who helped to install the water tank that Daniel brought from Kenya. It took them a day to install during a period when it was dry and hot. I was concerned that perhaps the rain season had ended, but we prayed together with the children, and praise Jesus we have had a lot of rains. Our 5000 Litre tank is now over flowing!

The building of our school

I am very grateful to Kathy, Helen and Jose who organised the book launch of Toriana in London. The money raised from the book launch as well as the money donated from various parts of the world has enabled us to continue building the school of two classrooms for our village. It is a community project where the locals have made the bricks, and bring water and sand. This month they broke stones for the ring-beam. Our contribution thus far has been to provide cement and pay some Christian Ugandan builders. At the moment we have enough funds to complete the school up to ring-beam level and I am trusting God to provide the funds to purchase timber and roofing material.
I feel a bit like Nehemiah where I am praying on the one hand and building on the other. If you feel led to contribute towards the roof of the school we would be most thankful, you can reference it as “Cath Bezold School” so that I know how to allocate the funds (simple click on the icon “contribute” and you will find the banking details).
