RABS MISSIONS IN UGANDA

LED BY APOSTLE DENIS PLKW MUWANGUZI

AND REV. EVE CLIVE NANSEREKO

December 2, 2018

Good morning mummy. We have just set off from the bus park. Divine strength, health and energy is ours in Christ Jesus name!! Mama Eve a little weak with flu and cough but braving on. Amen we have reached at around 7:30pm. The bus broke down along and mechanics fixed it in less than an hour. We are resting till tomorrow then go deep in the villages.

12/3/2018 We are teamed up with a sister who mobilized for most of the second-hand-clothes. We have four sacks ready for distribution but we are short of books and pens for the children who cannot attend school because they lack such. We only have seven dozen sets. We will be promoted to cut down on the books given to each child.  

12/6/2018 Shalom with Love, mummy. Thank you for your prayers. We are going on well but my phone has jammed and I have lost most of the good photos and videos I had saved. We traveled well but the bus had a breakdown when we were remaining with about 120km to reach Kaabong town. We set off at 1am and reached 7:20pm. It’s a journey of close to 800km. With many bus stop overs.  On Tuesday we went to the furthest center, close to 110km from town. Imagine one of the motorcycles we had hired developed a flat tire in the middle of the wilderness. The three of us had to mount one motorbike while the rest carried luggage. We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic welcome we received. We preached, and showed the Jesus film. By night we could not move because wild elephants and zebras cross the road late in the evening towards Kidepo national Park. We had to sleep in open walled shelter. But even after we retired, village folks continued praising God with dancing up to midnight. Imagine praising in the open night without electricity, without a lantern or lamp, in the coldness. You couldn’t miss the joy. 

The men guarded us with bows and arrows while we slept. The next morning, we ministered and 27 people gave their lives to Christ. We encouraged them to continue meeting and they appointed a member by the names of Simon to lead them in fellowshipping. We then moved to the next village camp and we ministered to children and adults. We prepared porridge and served both villages there after gave out clothes. These members also agreed to start fellowshipping and appointed their leader. It was pure revival as men women and children were taking a cup of porridge while receiving a gift of cloth. If all churches could experience that joy.

Today, we went to another subcounty. There are times, localities, situations that need the feet of an apostle and the declaration of a prophet for changes to be manifested. We visited this community last year and it was in a sorry unredeemable state. Around 12 people received salvation and agreed to continue fellowshipping. A few times mama Eve could send transport for a minister from the town church to go and encourage these saints. But most times we failed to send transport because we could not communicate with them because they had no phones. We prayed and declared the land for Jesus. We were amazed today Thursday to find a permanent church has been constructed and most of the people who got converted are active in church. Mama Eve encouraged the community members to cultivate a relationship with God gave them a testimony of herself. We also ministered to children and gave out clothes mainly to women because they could not cover all of them. We identified some children who are not attending school because of books and pencils and we are going to mobilize books to give them by the beginning of next term.

We left that place this evening much encouraged by church members. At 2am we are going to board a bus to another district of Kotido and reach out to two communities there and the n connect to Moroto district. We appointed a brother by the name of Obadia to become the RABS district coordinator of Kaabong district. He has been very instrumental in organizing our transportation, welfare, translating and visiting the villages we ministered to after we had gone.

I yearned to keep you updated daily but there was no network and internet, besides we were so busy and involved from the onset to the end. I got this as we are waiting for the bus to start off the journey. Mama Eve is sending her greetings to all of you.

12/9/2018 Shalom with Sunday greetings mummy. I secured some photos of the first three days from the sister we went with. We then went to Kotido and I went to another village and delivered this half sack of clothes to one of the church members. We did not take part in the distribution here because we wanted to be in time for the taxi that would take us to Moroto district.

This morning we attended service in the church of our host pastor.  After we both ministered a man who appeared to be a lunatic gave his life to Christ. To our amazement this guy corrected people who were translating. He was speaking sense. He stayed longer and we shared a meal conversing with him. This church was so stirred up and announced three days of prayer and fasting starting tomorrow. In the evening we are going to visit another village

I want to mobilize for books, pens and pencils and take them at the start of first term in February. The lady at far right got saved during our last mission last year and is now active in church. We spent Friday travelling to Moroto district. On Saturday we first went to a school where we were to distribute the books and some clothes we had brought.

In the evening we went to a distant village and we were warmly welcomed. This village has nine manyattas with a population of more than four hundred people. Thanks to God, the church meets under a tree. A manyatta is a collection of families staying closely together in a homestead of at least 20 huts enclosed with wooden branches for security.

Tomorrow we are going to another remote village so bound by demonic powers.  The ruling spirits in that are said to manifest in form of a flying and talking serpent, a woman with one breast. A sister who has just got a hut to reside in while in that place has reported appearance of a skeleton like figure to her children while alone at home. Saturday night the same appeared to her on the way home with her children but this time she rebuked it and it disappeared.

This sister Evelyn is going to lead RABS and Barefoot Garden Fellowships in this mountainous community. The Lord has particularly confirmed to this lady and the church leaders that He wants to save this community and that these ministers had tarried long without reaching out to the village.

The whole of Karamoja has experienced a long day season. Everywhere we went it was too dry but as soon as we concluded today’s church service, it started raining. PRAISE THE LORD!

12/16/2018 Shalom and Calvary greetings mummy. I bless the mercies of the Lord who enabled us conclude Karamoja mission well on Friday. In My last communication we were going to our last village which was spiritually challenging.

We thank you and the entire RABS and Barefoot Garden fellowship family who prayed for us mightily and effectively. Indeed, we were like scouts and we purposed not to preach but devote ourselves entirely to prayer in spiritual warfare. As we were continuing, members of this village came by themselves and asked to join us. We welcomed them and two of them gave their lives to Christ as we were concluding. We didn’t get any direct attack except the motorcycle that was taking us developed mechanical problems and we survived falling off twice as we were going. After prayers the motorcycle could not take us back. We walked the entire eight-kilometers journey back except mummy Eve and the host pastor who were picked halfway through the journey. Two children of the lady who was confirmed by the Holy Spirit to lead that fellowship developed serious diarrhea that day but got healed by the close of the day. AMEN!

It’s amazing when you let the Holy Spirit have his way. One lady who was praying with us all through the three days gave us testimony about her son who is a drug addict, unruly and one time assaulted her. The boy always abused her and harassed her tenants. She found the boy at home after prayers and for the first time he kept quiet and listened to her mother as she counselled her. He even fetched water for her.

Another elder had a mental problem but felt much relieved after two days of prayer. This same man offered to get one day of the week and visit the first village and teach the children some basic English and arithmetic. The children in this village don’t have a school at all. He agreed to volunteer if we could get him a cheap chalk-board, box of chalk, then books and pencils/pens for the children. We traveled throughout the night and reached Kampala in the morning of Friday, December 14, 2018. Upon arriving at home, I found my Papa in a sorry state. He was very weak, dizzy, with no appetite and having some cough. I am trying to help him be stable. He needs much of my time, care and patience but God is faithful.

I am encouraged by the testimony in all the centers and villages we visited in Kaabong, Kotido and Moroto districts. We appointed RABs coordinator in Kaabong district and Moroto district. We also started fellowships in Loleria A and Loleria B of Kaabong district plus Aworob and Musas villages of Moroto district. The director of Nawanatau primary School invited us to start monthly fellowship in the school.

We thank God for the facilitation but most importantly the prayer and parental cover extended to us throughout the entire mission from mummy Cyndi and the entire RABS family. I am set to mobilize for scholastic materials specifically for the village children in which we started fellowships to be availed to them by the beginning of first term next year in February 2019.

Much grateful for Mama Cyndi, Pastor Milton, and the entire RABS family.

Denis Plkw Muwanguzi and Rev. Eve Clive Nansereko

You can help send these children to school by donating for the purchase of pencils, pens, and text books: Apostle Denis said: “I want to mobilize for books, pens and pencils and take them at the start of first term in February 2019.” Before you view the photo gallery below, please consider donating to help educate these children in remote areas. Education is FREE but they must come to every term with their own pencils, pens, and current text books or they are denied educations. 

THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU

God Bless you and thank you for being a part of RABS International Ministries and Mama Cyndi’s Milling Project in Uganda, East Africa.

It begins with buying and clearing the plot, the construction from the stone foundation up to the iron-sheet roof and everything in between to the first days of milling which was October 19, 2018 at Mama Cyndi’s Milling Project.

In a year’s time, I have personally invested several thousands of US dollars and I PRAISE THE LORD because it is all His. I paid my house off in November 2016 and I had big financial plans to do some major renovations to my house. I continued putting the monthly mortgage amount into my savings account believing that in the Spring of 2017, I would start the necessary structural updates and renovations. However, in February 2017, the Lord told me it was not my money to spend and that it was Kingdom money. Once the mill project got underway in September 2017, I knew then it was what the Lord had intended for the money I had been saving.

I struggled financially because the Mill cost much more than what I had saved and adding to that the monthly house payment as we progressed was still not enough to complete the project. However, I want to testify that the Lord saw me through it financially, physically, and spiritually. It was draining at times because of the problems there on the site and some of subcontractors cheated us and did bad work along with many costly things that we did not expect.

Zone 1 where the Mill is located and like Zones 2, 3, and 4 is very overpopulated with low wage-earners. Where we built the area has been overtaken by non-Christian groups and witchcraft. Individuals and shop keepers travel far to get their corn milled or to purchase Maize Flour and it’s very costly. The Community Leaders have shown us favor and they continue to express their happiness and gratitude in the Mill being built there. We are all praying it brings more needed businesses to the area and we will see new jobs come into these poor neighborhoods. The Community Leaders asked to meet with me and they approved a Christian Dedication Service for the Mill. On February 21, 2018 we came together with the neighbors and the community leaders and the Church family for a great dedication celebration.

2019 Milling Project Update

 

February 27, 2019 MAMA CYNDI’S MILLING PROJECT UPDATE

Although we went into full production on October 19, 2018 milling, we have had challenges and set-backs that slowed down our production. However, I am glad to report as of now the Mill is operating well. Our 2019 sales are excellent in spite of the increased cost (doubled) in corn by the ton. I was so happy to visit the Mill in January 2019 when I was in Uganda for the Annual RABS International Conference. I was accompanied by all of our National Directors and our RABS International Team and many visiting RABS leaders from all of the nations RABS is currently ministering in. We had many pastors from Uganda visit the Mill and everyone was so delighted to see the production and have a hand at hulling and milling with the help of the Mill’s professional millers.

The great increase in the corn cost is the result of a high-yield harvest in 2018 that saturated the market and many international traders bought much of the corn. In those areas where there are two and near the equator three annual harvests the lack of the latter year’s rain left the quality and quantity of marketable product at a very low production so demand and lack of supply has driven the prices to critical highs.

However, we have not lost hope, for we know the Lord is on our side and He is in full control of the weather conditions. We are believing Him and trusting for a another high yield this late Spring in particular areas and then again in the Autumn Harvest when much of Uganda soil is producing high-quality corn in vast amounts.

We welcome your prayers and your financial support to prevent a loss in the product as we are committed to helping the most vulnerable in the community and in those in various places we are ministering in–to learn more about that read the latest report from Pastor Denis and Rev. Eva Clive “RABS PASTORS RETURN…”

Thank you and God Bless you;

Pastor Cyndi Higgins

 

August 30, 2018, MAMA CYNDI’S MILLING PROJECT UPDATE

We have been preparing for the first day of operations at the Milling Project in Kiereka Kasokoso, Uganda. All electricity and special electrical devices and services for milling is completed.

All the water hook-ups completed and we have now served the community with clean and purified water for 2 months at a very low cost compared to the other water sellers in the community! The water sales will help pay the Mill’s Utility bills.

Our first load of corn, 9 tons, has been delivered. The final touches are being completed on the Mill’s machinery and will be installed on my, Pastor Cyndi’s,  61st Birthday (September 1st).  No better gift could I have asked our Heavenly Father for! Praise His holy name!  

Please join us in thanking the Lord of lord’s and King of kings our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus for His love and mercy He has extended through His grace in this kingdom assignment! No man or woman or ministry could have accomplished this if it had not been for God’s constant provision and protection!

We give Him all the glory and all the honor! For surely this is the manifestation of His unfailing love and we are forever grateful to Him! There has been no ministry funds used for this Milling Project, every expense has been literally provided by the Grace of Our Lord

Love and Blessings

Pastor Cyndi Higgins

As you drive by the cornfields here in America, my hope through prayer is that you will remember those in desperate need of maze (corn) flour the daily dietary staple of the East African Nations! Just $10.00 USD equals 37,000 Ugandan Shillings and that buys a lot of flour for the average family. At MAMA CYNDI’S MILLING PROJECT we want to buy corn and mill it and through the ministry give the milled flour to the neediest in the Community. You can help us feed the most vulnerable of Kiereka Kasokoso (Kampala) Uganda, East Africa! Please let your ❤ lead you and make a tax deductible donation today! THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

 

 




CHRISTIANS’ GENEROSITY IS NOT TAX INCENTIVED BUT GOD ORDAINED



          DONATE TODAY BECAUSE YOU ARE MADE IN HIS IMAGE!

Sunday, June 17th LinkedIn News Feed Reported: “Americans were especially charitable in 2017. Buoyed by a strong economy, donations to charities hit record highs last year, Fast Company reports. Americans gave a total of $410 billion, with religious groups taking the lion’s share ($127 billion) followed by education and human services groups. 

The increased giving may soon hit a speed bump, though. The tax reform package passed in December 2017 raises the standard deduction, reducing the appeal of tax-deductible donations for many Americans.”

Pastor Cyndi Higgins, RAB Founder and International Director’s response to these predictions of slower giving: “Likely, the speed bump being suggested will not slow down Christians’ financial gift-giving, but only those who give to receive something from the government! 

The truth, however is this, most Americans do not give for a ‘tax credit.’ Most givers give generously because it is in their GNA—Godly Natural Attributes!

God is the biggest giver and none can out give Him! “ He so loves the world (the people of it) that He gave His Only Begotten Son—whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” 

Christians’ generosity far exceeds just giving for religious purposes and way beyond tithes. God puts “desires of justice” in our hearts that inspires us to give to a variety of causes. 

We are made in our Creator’s image so we will not stop giving as long as our God remains the same!

AN ARTICLE ABOUT MY APOSTOLIC VISIT TO BURUNDI AND RWANDA, EAST AFRICA.

By: Milton Wanyama, RAB coordinator, 6th, June, 2018.

Pastor Milton Wanyama encouraging the saints in Burundi, “Immeasurable Ministries.”

My sincere greetings to all RABs Families and friends.

I appreciate all of you for your prayers for this Faith Assignment of bringing back the Run Away Brides of our Lord Jesus Christ.

My journey to Burundi and Rwanda was an awakening call to my beloved brothers and sisters in The Lord. I left Kampala on 22nd of May 2018, and spent 2 days in Rwanda with my beloveds, Pastor Robert Kinyatilo, RAB DRC National Director and Habumugisha Evariste, RAB Rwanda National Director.

Pastor Milton Wanyama, RAB Africa Coordinator with Pastor Evariste Habumugisha, RAB Rwanda National Director at the Church he oversees for the Lord.

I had a good time with the brethren, strengthening them with the word of encouragement. Brother Robert suffered a severe fever which needed serious attention and as a leader, I had to take him to hospital for a thorough examination.

It became challenging, seeing my fellow brother in a bad situation

PASTOR ROBERT MEETING MILTON AT RWANDA AIRPORT

and leaving without any attention. I had to take Robert to the hospital with the little coins that was left with me. You don’t know how I felt, in a foreign land where no one knows you apart from your host who at the same time was very sick. It was hard to be in touch with pastor Evariste since he was busy teaching at school.

The sickness came upon him a few months ago when the enemy tried to dim the light and Pastor Robert found himself wrongfully accused and in the Rwandan prison. But God Almighty stood with him and after two long months he was found innocent by the hand of the Lord’s intervention and released. It was a real trying moment as he was trying to explain to me how things went on the ground, but our God is faithful He brought into the situation His Justice, Truth! Truth prevailed! Glory be to God!

I however, took time to encourage my brothers and sisters through James 1:2 where he says; “Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” We can find joy in the midst of problems only when we recognize their purpose and results.

The enemy is not happy as he sees much happening in the body of Christ, hundreds of reconciled brides of Jesus learning more and joining the faith assignment. We are witnessing many churches becoming so much more effective by experiencing the new growth through this RAB mission ministries and so the devil will try to dim the light but our God always raises the standard.

Saints gathering to Praise the Lord and hear the Word of the Lord through Pastor Milton Wanyama

As Apostle Paul says; “Therefore my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of The Lord, because you know that your labour in The Lord is not in Vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58.

A new governmental law being consistently enforced has forced the closing of churches throughout Rwanda. Four months ago, the Rwanda government made an announcement to bring down every church which was not permanently built. Any church that cannot reach the government’s standards were closed. Authorities have closed more than 7,000 churches across Rwanda, including 714 in the capital city of Kigali for failing to comply with health, safety, and noise regulations.

The Rwandan brethren said some of the requirements a church must meet is:  a church MUST have a parking yard, a large enough parcel of land with all facilities like toilets. It’s true in areas where cars are driven to avoid blocking streets, parking yards are necessary, however, most people attending church walk to their churches because they do not own cars. Additionally, the new regulations include no loud noises especially musical instruments. Interestingly other religions make loud-speaker-noise daily in the Rwandan streets seemingly unnoticed. Let us keep the body of Christ in prayers especially in this scenario of our dear pastors in Rwanda who cannot afford the millions of funds needed to reach the standard the government wants.

I truly felt pity for the saints I visited with and those I encountered seeing the hopelessness of their situation most especially when I saw mega churches and other religious buildings and mosques operating because they have money and are well off because they can afford the necessary requirements the government wants. I do not disagree that unsafe and unsanitary gathering places must be regulated and that some conmen calling themselves pastors need to be stopped for that too was part of the government’s mandate, but one cannot help but see the discrimination in the standards set that most Christian Churches in Rwanda are unable to meet.

Like my pastor friend Emmanuel Mugabe’s church building I visited in 2016 in Nyanza province with bishop Wilfred Barasa, I felt sad when I passed by and saw it closed and the congregation scattered. God have mercy and do something for the body of Christ especially pastors who have the true calling but are under a poor state.

I took my second journey to Burundi Friday the 25th. I could not travel alone on this journey so I took the “sick Pastor Robert” as my companion. We arrived in Bujumbura late evening and welcomed by Pastor David Nsegiyumva, Burundi RAB National Director.

BURUNDI STREET WHEN PASTOR DAVID MET PASTOR MILTON MAY 2018

David’s family and friends showed us good hospitality despite the long journey to his home. Burundi roads are full of caves and mountains and so we were very weary upon our arrival that evening. However, all in all, God was faithful! He rendered us journey mercies and we arrived safely.

In Burundi, RAB’s ministry is taking stronger root compared to Rwanda where communication is a problem to most of the people.

Kinyarwanda is the only outspoken language throughout the country of Rwanda according to my investigation. People in Burundi are welcoming and eager to learn. I visited Bishop Bukitwa Kilongo of “Immeasurable Ministries” and Rev. Augustine Omana of “Jesus is the Answer Ministries.” These two servants were special tools to me and good vessels for propagating the Gospel and the message of reconciliation in Burundi. These two men also served us well in their homes.

However, as we all know, Burundi is one of the poorest countries in our African continent which needs a lot of prayers. It is hard for Pastor David who serves fulltime as a Shepherd overseeing a medium-size congregation to do ministry there as a number of people think in their hearts, he has help for them in terms of money. It’s a common belief that pastors are financially secure and able to help the members of the church—if only this were the truth many less people would suffer from such debilitating poverty. This is the only country I witnessed a Christian coming to church bare footed with no shoes or slippers due the poverty.  

As you can see in the ‘Article’s Featured Photo even Pastor David does part time work because  BURUNDI IS ONE OF THE POOREST NATIONS IN EAST AFRICA:

BURUNDI ONE OF THE POOREST NATIONS IN EAST AFRICA:
Pastor David Nsegiyumva, Burundi, selling boiled eggs and packaged soya beans to support his family.

Pastor David does part time work in Bujumbura, selling boiled eggs and packaged soya beans on the street to bring up his family. David himself is still a hustler with no support of the church he oversees and no sponsors to provide with his family needs as a husband and a wife with three children. A hustler in our African countries is someone who still struggles financially, like a go-getter. They don’t know how the day will be, struggling to get enough money to bring home to your family. This is what I mean being a hustler. I saw this and I felt like oh my God!! 1 Thessalonians 2: 9 Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you.”

As we seek together eternal results, let us remember the nations, the churches, and our beloved brothers and sisters, who are not in the same position in their hearts with Jesus Christ as they once were.

The church at large in these two nations I have recently visited needs real Biblical teachings. We need your support as far as GOD’S work is concerned. Please consider making a donation today to RABS. You may specify the donation is for Rwanda or Burundi or for our food programs or purchasing Bibles or training pastors. Let your heart be known this day in your financial gift. Proverbs 19:17 and Proverbs 22:9 “When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord—and he pays wonderful interest on your loan.” “Happy is the generous man, the one who feeds the poor.”

With these few remarks, may the almighty God bless you.

Yours faithfully,
Pastor Milton Wanyama, RABS’ Africa Coordinator

Pastor Milton Wanyama is preparing to take a RAB Missions trip to Rwanda and Burundi in May 2018. He will be visiting Rwanda RAB Director, Pastor Evariste Hambumugisha and Pasteur Robert Kinyatiro DRC-Congo RAB Director in Rwanda for additional training for the RAB National Directors and for the Rwanda and DRC RAB Team members. It is also an opportunity to encourage the Rwandan saints. Many (over 700) Christian churches were closed recently due to new building condition regulations passed by the Rwandan government. Pastor Evariste and the saints after a hard month of work were able to reopen the building they meet in for Sunday and mid-week services. Then Pastor Milton will go into Burundi to meet with Pastor David Nsengiyumva, RAB Burundi Director. Pastor Milton will add to the training that Pastor David and the RAB Burundi RAB team members have received and all of the new changes of RAB’s procedures and policies will be explained.
