CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION FOR
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (CFCD)

Report -- May, 2012.

 

Many Lives Get Saved Through our Outreaches..

In prison, the warders and prisoners refer to me as their Pastor and at Tororo hospital the medical staffs call me pastor of the sick. The sick themselves refer to me as pastor and others call me Doctor. This is because of the great work being done by CFCD in these facilities to help many come to Christ and to access medicine!

Since the beginning of this year, our team that ministers in prison and hospital has increased. Young men and ladies from different evangelical churches have joined us in evangelism/ prayer for those who are hurting and God is doing the wonderful work of saving and giving hope to those who are hopeless. At Tororo hospital, hundreds of people every month benefit from our drug distribution program and there is no doubt that many people who would have died have got a chance to live. There is nothing expensive here like a life of a human being when it comes to treatment.

Recently my body was not feeling well and i visited a clinic of one of the senior doctors in town. People in tororo town know that his services are cheap compared to other doctors. Oh my God! The tests that he recommended me to have and the drugs were not cheap to a common man here. In Uganda, doctors are found in urban areas and the average treatment for malaria at their clinics is 100,000 shillings excluding food and drinks that a patient needs to gain energy. This is why most of our people in villages die because they can’t afford such treatment. They resort to hubs which are not processed and there is no doctor to prescribe for them the right medication.

The government has tried to build health units in some areas but sometimes there are no drugs in these facilities and well qualified personnel is lacking. That’s why people who can’t afford treatment die. But thanks be to God from our friends here and the United states. Feeding the sick and providing medicine has helped so many people at Tororo hospital.

The sick who are able to reach this facility find themselves living because of the support you give us. I know we can’t solve all the problems in one day but the few people we reach out to thank God because of Christian Foundation. The government can’t provide all that is needed because of the budget constraints. However, when we continue supplementing the government’s efforts to provide the needed help to the sick and preaching the gospel in prisons to help in reforming the prisoners, God will bless us.

For example, this financial year’s health budget has been slashed by 15 percent to satisfy other areas of the economy and you sympathize with the government because the economy in general is doing badly. That’s why we need prayers because the world over the economies are hurting yet man needs the basics of life like food, medicine and shelter. For us we rely on the scripture in the book of 1 Peter 5: 6 that says: Caste all your worries to him because he cares for you!! Prayers love and care will enable us to work hard and reach out to those who are needy and hurting because we are co-laborers with God. With your general support and prayers, there will always be light at the end of the tunnel.

 

Twins in the Incubator.

Oh my God! I feel oblieged to give you the update of the children that we are taking care of in the incubator at Tororo hospital. They are growing well and they are weighing 1.65 kgms. If you have been following our reports on the website, I talked about these kids whose mother was totally crippled. The mother died and there was no body responsible to take care of them. With no mother, responsible father or close caring relative, these children were destined for death.

Although their mother was totally crippled, had she to live these children by the grace of God would grow having someone to refer to as mother. When the mother was operated, these premature children were very tiny (about 1 kg) but now they are so lovely to look at. We are looking forward for them to reach the recommended weight so that we hand them over to the District probation office which in turn will look for a good baby’s home that can take care of them. Continue to pray for these children. Who knows in future they may become important people that make a contribution to change the lives of many. Thanks be to God because of Christian Foundation.

 

Prison Outreach.

Our prison outreaches are growing strong day by day. God opened for us another door in Mayuge prison. It is about 80 km from tororo but its worthy visiting because prisoners there need Jesus. I know some team members from hope4kids may want to visit this facility with us when they are in Uganda, please always feel free to share with us your feelings as we pray for prison ministry. The number of people who accept the Lord each month is increasing, continue to pray for those who get saved. This month our team fished for the Lord 70 people in both prison and hospital.
