Uganda: Sunday and Sickness (Jackson’s Update)

Glen Jackson, a member of the SIFAT board of directors, and his wife Marie are currently in Uganda for a month visiting Agape Total Childcare Center. Glen and Marie have gone on short-term mission trips to serve at SIFAT graduate William Nsubuga’s project for the past two years and are leading a team this summer. They will be sharing their experiences with us as they experience life in Mukono! Click here to read more about SIFAT’s work in Uganda.

Well, Sunday was a wonderful day at Agape Christian Academy! We worshipped the Lord in English and Lugandan and felt the Lord’s presence. Glen and I cried a lot! God was gracious and used us to share our testimony of how the Lord connected us to Agape and brought us here for the month. The children seemed totally engaged, and the new headmistress was deeply moved. God is so amazing!

After the service, I was extremely sick and had to return to the hotel. Glen and I spent time in prayer, read Scripture and listened to Praise music. Jesus ministered to us so beautifully, and I had such peace. After a good night’s sleep, I am feeling 100%! We believe that we discovered the cause–however, it could have just been a test of our faith. God is good, and today, it has been wonderful being with the children. The new students are excited to meet us and seem so glad to be here. Tomorrow will begin our teaching classes. I know this is long and does not include pictures, but I am working on it. I will get it done soon! ~ Marie
