Where we live, Mbarara, it's been estimated that there is 1 Witness for every 25,000. In one year we have seen with our own eyes the incredible increase of 11 new publishers in the English congregation! We are surrounded with unassigned and seldom worked areas that are untouched or rarely preached in. It's been exciting to be a part of the "Macedonia campaign" once again this year as we set out to some of those seldom worked territories for June and July. The people there eagerly welcome us. Many are searching to know the Bible, and they often ask sincere questions. Commonly they want to know how their prayers can be heard by God. Unfortunately they have been taught that they need others like priest and pastors to pray for them, and at a cost. We hear people say all the time, that the church tells them "no coins, paper money only". It's just sad, because not only should you never charge money for a prayer, but these people have very little to give. Needless to say, they light up with joy when they learn how to pray for themselves and that Jehovah God is the hearer of their prayers!
Recently we had assembly here and 3 from our congregation were baptized. Also, a family that Steven and I have been studying with attended their first assembly!
