"to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faithin me." Acts 26:18

Butaga Village Church

This morning we were able to worship with our brothers and sisters at Butaga Orthodox Presbyterian Church. 

New Life Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Mbale (the church that meets on our compound) donated all the iron sheets to Butaga for them to use on their building.  What generosity they are showing even as New Life is still trying to save money for their own church building.

This morning was also special as we were able to witness a former Muslim family receive the mark of baptism.  They also asked to all receive new Christian names (they had formally had all Muslim names).  I love this picture of the children looking to their daddy and mommy as they are baptized.  What a beautiful way to lead one's family to Christ!

And of course the little one came kicking and screaming to Christ...like so many of us did!
