rachael hAfter arriving in Kampala in September 2016, Rachael is gaining cultural and language experience before dividing her time between two local Christian organisations from January 2017. Before then Rachael is taking part in a LWU Training weekend, WOL Camps and the LWU Annual Conference.

Word of Life works with young people to

  • Share the good news of Jesus with them
  • Disciple them
  • Equip them to pass the good news on to others

WOL run a number of camps throughout the year, partner with local schools and churches and run a year long ‘Bible Institute’ for school leavers.

Living Word Uganda is committed to serving Christian university students by equipping them with faithful bible handling and teaching skills. Rachael will be involved in various training events alongside reading the bible 1-1 with a number of female students.

Prayer Points

  • Walk with Jesus: pray Rachael would remember that God’s plan for her time is   better than her own! Pray for a willingness to be used by Him however He sees fit!
  • Transition to life in Uganda: cultural sensitivity; meeting people; acquiring language; learning her role and how to teach and communicate God’s truth in culturally accessible ways; finding a home in a helpful area for ministry and purchasing a vehicle.
  • Ministry: pray for people to respond to the gospel with repentant hearts and faith; pray for disciples to grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus and pray they would be eager to share that good news with others. Pray they would stand firm in their faith amidst a myriad of false teaching.
  • Home Church: meaningful gospel partnerships to be maintained and enjoyed!
