Our Women in the Window Team has safely arrived in Uganda! Below is an update from the team of Kim Kerr, Sarah Tountas, and Sarah Peters.
Our day started bright and early at 7:30 a.m. with devotions focused on the Good Shepherd in the Gospel of John. We just completed our first full day of training at 9:30 p.m! Each moment with these 15 key Sudanese women leaders has been fruitful. The women consider it quite an honor to receive this WiW training. They traveled from various places in war-torn South Sudan, refugee camps, and cities. They received spiritual and sound business principles and practices with great enthusiasm. They are very eager to learn and apply Inductive Bible study tools and leadership skills as well.
Their hearts are so heavy with the daily unthinkable burdens of poverty and war. Despite all of the trauma, we are amazed at how trusting they are and how open their hearts are.
- For us all, Africans and Americans, to experience the transformation and refreshment as we gather together through the remaining four days of training.
- For our health and stamina as we are still catching up with the seven-hour time difference.
- That our words would be clearly articulated to and understood by our sisters here and that the Holy Spirit would be at work in their hearts.
- That our Sudanese brothers and sisters would be confident and empowered that they are the ones best-equipped to share the Gospel with the unreached here and wherever the Lord takes them.
