GHBC team to Uganda in February 2017
When Grace Harvest Baptist Church was still in its infancy, several members joined Pastor Mark and his wife Cathy on a missions trip to Uganda. While they were there, they met several men of God who made an impact upon them. One of those men was Pastor Abraham. This is a man who lives humbly, and is focused on sharing the message of Jesus. The Elders of Grace Harvest Baptist Church have a passion to support Pastor Abraham so that he can continue to focus on the work that God has called him to do. Pastor Abraham, his wife Irene, and their five children live in Soroti, Uganda where he serves as senior pastor for New Life Baptist Church. Grace Harvest Baptist Church supports Pastor Abraham’s service to the Lord in the following ways:
- Buying airtime on the local Ugandan radio. His program is one of the most listened to in the region and allows him a massive platform to share the gospel.
- Providing funds for famine relief efforts. This has opened doors for both Pastor Abraham and the pastors he mentors to meet the basic needs of the people so they can hear about their eternal need.
- Personally investing in Pastor Abraham through meeting his financial needs in order to allow him to effectively and efficiently study the Word of God. We have accomplished this by providing him with electric lighting, clean water, and various house improvements. In addition, GHBC has helped Pastor Abraham start a printing business, giving him additional financial support.
- Providing training, mentoring, and continued education opportunities. Pastor Mark personally helps Pastor Abraham with his sermon development. GHBC has sent various digital resources to Pastor Abraham in order to grow his knowledge and help feed his hunger to know more of God’s Word.
Grace Harvest Baptist Church has visited Pastor Abraham and his church in November 2007, January 2014, and January 2017. In addition, we have teams planned to return in December 2017 and December 2018.
