Matthew 25:35-40
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger
and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison
and you came to visit me.’

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when
did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something
to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in,
or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in
prison and go to visit you?’

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the
least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Recently we received staggering news from our friends in Uganda. A persistent drought caused by the El Nino weather phenomena is causing hunger and suffering for millions living near the east coast of Africa. This drought is resulting in the loss of produce from their two previous harvest seasons thus triggering a humanitarian crisis that threatens as many as 20 million people.

According to the Famine Early Warning System Network (FEWS), 750,000 Sudanese fleeing war and famine, have fled to Uganda, furthering the strain on an already struggling population. Poor household food stocks were depleted four months earlier than normal and households remain atypically dependent on markets to access food. Most poor households are borrowing or seeking additional labor opportunities in nearby urban centers to earn income to purchase food. However, staple cereal prices are above average, driving lower than normal labor-to-cereal and goat-to-cereal terms to trade (ToT). Many households are eating cheaper, less preferred foods. Some households have reported being unable to pay school fees and others have increased the sale of livestock for additional income. Unfortunately, livestock are dying due to a lack of water.

Shalom making an appeal to those of you who have a heart of compassion for God's beautiful people. We are requesting that you sow Kingdom seeds, i.e. donate funds, toward this effort and enable us to represent the hand of God on your behalf.

The above-mentioned passage taken from Matthew 25 challenges all who are followers of God. Jesus seems to be gauging our sensitivity to the genuine needs around. Using the standard of "meeting fundamental needs of others" as a test of heavenly expectations to separate goats from sheep. As a sheep of God, will you help the Ugandan people? The need is enormous and growing daily. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to granting you a full report of our activities.

Please pray about what you will sow and click link below so that you can go straight to The Ugandan Relief donation page. I appreciate each of you for the love, care, and support that you give to our ministry and I pray that God will add back to your life things that money cannot buy.

Yours in Christ,
