To kick the journey off, the team took a scenic and adventurous 1.5 hour ferry ride up river to a small barangay of 64 houses. They were the first westerners to visit in over a year. Lots of healings of pain, fevers and eye problems, as well as salvations took place as the team went door to door distributing rice and water filters and praying for the needs of the people.  An outdoor meeting followed with nearly every person (about 100) accepting Jesus! Steve reports of a man born hearing impaired who was totally healed (including his blurry vision) without even receiving prayer. He ran to get his mostly blind father who was also totally healed!   Read More

Yesterday the team headed to a new village, Kantegalamire. It is a very interesting place, indeed. Although it is less than 10 miles from Kalonga, this village of 5,000 is remarkably isolated; in fact it feels like it’s a hundred miles away. I was surprised to discover that the people speak a different language from those in the surrounding towns and villages. This is because Kantegalamire was populated by a nomadic tribe a number of years ago. We found out that we are the first “musungus” (white people) to come in 15 years. The medical clinic that we set up yesterday was the first ever in this community. When we arrived, there was a large crowd waiting outside. Once again, the doctors and nurses reported that they encountered a lot of very sick people. Like the last village and Sango Bay, this has been a very bad year for malaria. There were also many serious stomach problems. While the nurses and doctors saw patients for hour after hour, the prayer team prayed for hundreds Read More

On Wednesday, we began our first mobile medical clinic in a town where we had been last year. The people, especially the children, were very sick. It is malaria season here in Uganda, and a local doctor told me that this is a very bad year for malaria. While the medical clinic went on, David and Cynthia Pearson led teams out into the town with water filters. Each filter will provide about 20-25 people with a permanent supply of clean water. At about 5:30, the team went into the middle of town for an outdoor meeting. We have a very musical team of translators on this Journey, and by the time we got there, a crowd of 300-400 had gathered to listen to them sing. After a while I preached and about 200 people came forward to receive Christ. Following that, the team prayed for the sick for almost an hour. There were many healings and more salvations.  Read More

Once again, the Lord has worked in wonderful ways. This Journey has been somewhat "underground", with us having to keep a lower public profile in some locations, due to the political climate. While there is never any danger of our team being directly on harassed, we don't want to make life difficult for our partners once we are gone. As a result, we have needed to assess every village and situation separately. Today, we are in the foothills of the Himalayas. The scenery is stunningly beautiful; at this altitude, the air is clear and cool. As I write this, our team has opened our fourth medical clinic. The atmosphere among those waiting is calm, with people waiting patiently.  Read More

As this remarkable Journey comes to a close, I look back with a deep sense of wonder at all that the Lord accomplished. East Samar is a province of about two million people, mostly in small communities (barangays). Over the past eleven days we have distributed enough water filters for more than 1,400 people. This is especially significant, as there has recently been an outbreak of typhoid fever; the filters will totally eliminate this deadly bacteria from the water. We visited schools, a hospital and prison. Wherever we went, people were healed and saved.   Read More
