Taking Discipleship to the Least

20140328_153332A Letter from Our Global Partner in Uganda

Dear Friends,
Eric on Boat
I had a wonderful Sunday today. I visited one of my hard to reach
churches along the shores of Lake Albert. I left Kagadi driving, then left
the car at Rusoroza Church, boardered a Bodaboda (motorcycle taxi) down a stiff escarpment to Kabukanga Landing site. There I took to a boat  for a 40 minutes ride (See photo). I fear going on water. I never visited this church for the
last seven years. It’s Kamina Church .  (See photo of Kamina
Landing site and the vibrant choir dancing their traditional song.

The service was attended by over three hundred people. 35 gave their
lives to Christ and 8 were baptized. I have five churches in a hard
areas to reach. The Lord has shown me to begin a Parish (a conglomerate of small churches) in this place whose headquarters to be at Kamina Church. They depend on fishing and have little income but  the people are so committed and love the Lord.

I have been impressed. They have started a school this year with four classes.

I can see why God is keeping me in Kagadi.  A lot is uncompleted.

Together we will!

Yours,
Rev. Eric

Gateway Center for World Mission Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

LEXINGTON, KY  – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Gateway Center for World Mission of Lexington, KY.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

Gateway Center for World Mission joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to equip church leaders in the nations considered “gateways” who have access to unreached peoples,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2002, Gateway Center for World Mission’s (www.gatewaycwm.org) vision is to spark a movement that will launch 1,000,000 missionaries into the harvest in the next ten years. Their strategy is to mobilize those who are called to go, called to send, called to care, and called to pray into vital teams that will multiply laborers. Their focus is training leaders who will in turn train others through obedience-oriented discipleship training in scripture, discipleship, mission, strategic intercession, and missionary care. Gateway Center for World Mission organizes partnerships to bring the Kingdom of God into all areas of community life.
