You help make it happen.
They had walls and floors, but they couldn’t afford a roof. Hundreds of people came from nearby villages to attend their church services. But when it rained, everyone would get drenched.
Their attitude about it was amazing—they were just thankful they had a building to worship God in.
That was the story of Pastor Aaron Mutebi’s church in Entebbe, Uganda, Africa 20 years ago. When we heard about their need for a roof, we had just started pastoring our church, and we had less than 100 people attending. It was also long before we were on television.
Together, our church raised the $16,000 for Pastor Aaron’s church’s roof.
Now, as a friend and supporter of Faith Life Now, YOU help us financially support Pastor Aaron’s church—Entebbe Miracle Centre Church.
We’ve been helping to financially support Entebbe Miracle Centre Church every year since we helped build that roof.
Today, Pastor Aaron’s church has a membership of more than 3,500 people, and he’s started and now oversees 230 churches all across the rural parts of Uganda. Every year, Pastor Aaron’s church holds an eight-day conference for the purpose of training pastors, as well as a yearly children’s crusade to share the love of Jesus—all at no expense to the local people coming from the most impoverished areas of Uganda.
- More than 3,500 people every week.
- More than 230 churches across the most impoverished areas of Uganda.
- Training up pastors.
- Sharing the love of Jesus with hundreds of Ugandan children.
YOU helped make ALL of that possible!
And there’s even more.
As a supporter of Faith Life Now, every single day, you help transform lives and impact entire nations.
People talk a lot about wanting to “be a part of something bigger” than themselves.
There’s a reason that desire is in our hearts.
It’s because we were designed to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.
Earlier this year, God told me,
YOU’RE NOT DONE. YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP GOING. REMIND THE PEOPLE THAT THERE’S MORE OUT THERE THAN THEY’RE TAPPING INTO.
GOD HAS MORE FOR YOU, FRIEND!
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. – Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
He has more for you—infinitely more!
It’s time for you to think higher, dream bigger, take territory for the Kingdom, and occupy your God-designed destiny.
Whether you realize it or not, you have incredible potential. God has called you to do something great. He has blessed you with gifts and talents that the world needs.
You have a purpose and an assignment. It’s time for you to break through the roadblocks the enemy has been trying to put in your path and race toward your destiny.
There’s an old song that talks about each one of us reaching just one and making a difference for the Kingdom of God.
BUT TOGETHER, WE CAN DO SO MUCH MORE!
Together, we can reach MORE; we can go FURTHER; we can reach HIGHER.
We are better together!
A group of people with a common goal can do amazing things. Together, we can do so much more than one person could ever accomplish on his or her own.
Here’s a snapshot of what God did this year through your support, in addition to supporting Entebbe Miracle Centre Church and all Pastor Aaron is doing in Uganda for the Kingdom.
With your help in 2019, we were able to:
- Provide 850 Bibles for distribution in Kenya.
- Support churches and ministries in Cambodia, Albania, Pakistan, and so many more.
- Send a team to minister in Peru where they witnessed the love and power of our awesome God and helped change lives.
- Help provide loving care and a safe place for victims of sex trafficking through our support of anti-sex trafficking organizations around the world.
- Provide a safe environment for expectant mothers to be able to focus on their health and the health of their unborn children with less worry. (Aubrey’s House is a transition home in Ohio that you helped launch for expectant mothers in difficult circumstances.)
- Support mothers in need by providing furniture, clothing, and other items for them and their children. Your gifts of love have helped eight women who chose life.
- Give hundreds of thousands of dollars to help share the love of God and the Good News of the Gospel around the globe.
This is just a glimpse of the impact you helped make through your support of Faith Life Now.
It’s impossible on this side of heaven to fully understand the impact of your investment into the Kingdom of God.
This is only the beginning!
We’re so grateful for you.
It’s because of YOU that we’re able to answer God’s call to advance His Kingdom and reach people around the world—people that we could never reach if we were trying to do it on our own.
Here’s the thing, friend. We know it’s December, a month that tends to be a busier time for most people.
But December is also the perfect time to begin looking forward to the coming new year with faith and hopeful expectation.
In light of that, we want to encourage you to reach out to us and tell us how we can pray for you in 2020.
Every year at Christmastime, I read Isaiah 9 with my family. It’s one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. These Scriptures are so powerful, and not just because they’re about the celebration of Jesus’s birth. These Scriptures tell us the story of an oppressed people who were being held hostage by their enemy because of their sin. Nothing was working in their favor. Desperate, they had resorted to living in survival mode in caves in the mountains. They had no hope for their futures.
Then, God showed up; He used a man named Gideon to defeat their oppressors and to make things right despite the Israelites’ past mistakes.
The battle was finished, and an entire nation was set free.
That’s what YOU are helping us to do when you support Faith Life Now—you are helping us share the love and promises of God, freeing the oppressed, and giving people hope for their futures.
