Colin Maxwell and I recommenced our open air street witness. Many towns throughout the province have been visited on a regular basis, Newry, Warrenpoint, Banbridge, Lurgan, Armagh, Portadown, Newtownards, Bangor and Holywood. It’s good to bring the message of the gospel to the people as they pass by. Do pray that the Lord will use the Word preached and the gospel tracts that have been distributed to the salvation of souls.

In the month of March we continued open air and street work until we commenced our outreach work for a gospel mission in Newcastle. The mission was held in the local primary school which was kindly granted to us. The meetings were well attended and supported by our local Free Presbyterian congregations.

At the end of April we began visitation for our gospel mission in John Knox Memorial Church on Shankill road. I really enjoyed the outreach in the community. The meetings were well attended and a real blessing to us all.

Other missions have been arranged, and in the coming days we plan to go to Garvagh Free Presbyterian Church. I also plan (DV) to join with Rev David Smith to conduct a Gospel mission in our Banbridge FP Church Hall for two weeks. In July and August I will have the opportunity to speak at some of the services in our Annalong congregation, also hold a five day club in the local housing estate. A Youth gospel mission is planned for Ballymoney FPC and some outreach work in Donaghadee.

We want to thank you again for all of your prayerful and financial support as we continue to proclaim the good news of the gospel around our land,

1Thess 5v25” Brethren pray for us.”

The electrical work team have arrived safely in Uganda and have commenced work to connect the mains electricity to the school, Church and Missionary apartments. The members of the team are Kyle and Elaine Wenlock, Richard Foster, Timothy Monteith, Joel Patterson, Luke Dobbin, Paul Lennox and Samuel Snodgrass.

During the next ten days they plan to finish the full electrical rewiring of the compound buildings, connecting plugs, lights and all electrical devices into the new network, together with new LED lights covering all paths and doors outside. They will then be able to connect this network to the new electrical switch panel which was made in Northern Ireland and shipped out last year. This will allow those on site to be able to switch between mains, solar and generator, depending on availability.

This work is the culmination of much prayer and planning and the availability of mains electricity at the school will make such a big difference to everyday life. Please pray for the team and their work during this time, that the Lord will protect and keep them as they work, and that this work will be completed successfully.
Rev Ray Carscadden has travelled to Uganda to cover the pulpit ministry there for the next few weeks. He follows on from two students who visited at the start of 2022 – Glenn Hamilton in January and David McAuley in February. Both of the students enjoyed the opportunity to cover all of the church services and the outreach and open air ministry during their four week visits. The congregation at Emmanuel were also delighted to welcome new visitors and took time to get to know the two men during their stay.

Please pray for the Congregation at Emmanuel and Glenn and David as they continue their studies and look to God for His leading in their lives. Pray especially for Rev Carscadden as he takes up the pulpit ministry – that the Lord will bless him in his labours and that souls will be saved and built up in the faith.
