Happy New Year!

We serve and awesome God!! Worthy is His name!!

We had the privilege of participating in the National Celebration here in Uganda. It is a time to worship the Lord, hear the Word preached, and much prayer.

Pastor Eve Senyonga has been a gracious hostess and blessed us so much. We thank God for introducing her and Pastor Jackson to us several months ago.
We are so thankful the Senyonga's invited us to Uganda.

The Celebration began in the afternoon.
Pastor Eve (in the blue) preaching.
The Christian Life Church choir.
There are 300 members. Mostly young people.

During the evening session, Pastor Eve asked us to sit on stage.
After she introduced our family and Andy... Gary said a few words to the people.

It was estimated that there were 30,000 people there to worship the Lord!

Andy led "Open the Eyes of My Heart" with the choir. Incredible!
Pastor Eve beginning the count down for the New Year.

It was an incredible night that will NEVER be forgotten.

Elizabeth, Katherine and Andy... speechless.

At midnight there was a huge display of fireworks and more worship.

There was also an intense time of prayer.

Pastor Eve asked us to the front of the stage once more as we stood for America as they prayed for our nation. They also prayed for our family.

Needless to say... WE ARE EXTREMELY BLESSED by this event!!
