The Ssese Islands are in Lake Victoria and there are 69 of them, all inhabited with 4 million people.
Pastor Edwards is the newly appointed Vicar and his commission from the Church of Uganda is to bring sustainable discipleship to each island.
Last year we ran a pilot course on one of the islands and many gave their lives to the Lord after completing Lesson one based on John 1 v 12.
Pastor Edwards has a huge challenge and has 6 years to meet the challenge. It takes a year to get round each island and the plan is to concentrate on bringing discipleship to one leader on each island using Life to the Full, Pure Gold and How to prepare and lead services. These leaders will then be able to train others. After this we will introduce the Compendium of Pastoral Theology, 6 books based on the Life of Christ in Matthews Gospel. This challenge can only be met through the raising of funds to print the course material and training and support from Daniel from Uganda.
Daniel will be going to the main Island again to meet with Pastor Edwards and discuss the way forward and any translations into local languages that need to be started.
Pastor Edward is Praising the Lord for the SEAN material and the support of SEAN Uganda TEE as he will now have the tools to equip him for this huge task. He can see no other way of completing this task without SEAN and he welcomes our income in training and resourcing to help him achieve his goal.
