Sharing and Soul-Struggling in Uganda

Written by Clay Riebe

We started this morning’s session with praise and worship that was so uplifting! Our Ugandan brothers and sisters love to sing and praise their God.

The men started today with a recap of yesterday’s sessions on forgiveness and the Wounds of the Heart. A man came forward to share his forgiveness story, and we were able to pray with him.

Making connections with our brothers and sisters in Uganda has been such a blessing. One of the conference attendees approached me and told me that my name, Clay, is “Bbumba” in Lugandan, the language of the Ugandans. He told me it was the materials potters make bowls and jars from. Was a great opportunity to share about being clay in the Potter’s hands.

We had great sessions on leadership of self, leadership of family, and leadership and others. These were led by Barry, Chip, and John. Kyle tackled the topic of how serving your wife well in Ugandan culture is taboo. He delivered the Word and let it speak for itself. There will be many conversations that come from this session. Oscar taught on why there is evil in the world. His personal story was so moving. Kyle finished up by addressing the problems with works-based theology. The gospel was presented, and you could sense there was a struggle going on in the hearts of many. We’re praying for opportunities for conversation with those who struggle with working their way to heaven.

Our time with our team after the conference has been rich each day. Our debriefing always is an encouragement that God is moving. We’re getting ready for a big gift-giving day tomorrow as the conference comes to a close.
