"Salvation Is Not Free"

Feb 25, 2015

Sitting in the living room of one of the ladies from her church in Uganda, an MTW missionary listened to a Bible study discussion focused on “love endures.” Some of the women shared personal stories about enduring bad marriages. One lady commented, “Love must endure. You must work hard. You must endure to the end. Salvation you know is not free.” Several nodded in agreement. The missionary was heartsick that these church women did not seem to understand one of the most basic teachings of Scripture—that salvation is by grace alone, a free gift of God.

The Church in Uganda and across Africa has grown rapidly in recent years, but sadly much of this growth has not been built on a solid foundation. Much theological education and discipleship is still needed to train the Church in the gospel of grace.

MTW missionaries and national partners in Uganda are working to change that. They are committed to sharing God’s Word in their community and formally training pastors in Uganda and across the African continent. Pray for those serving in Uganda, and for God to build that solid foundation of grace among His people.

I struggled to find the patience I needed to navigate my three crying children as my Muslim neighbor continued banging on my gate.

Pray for our ministries in Africa, where many have come to expect broken systems and corruption. Pray that God would intervene and change hearts that would change communities.

Pray for Christian businessmen and women making a difference through the Business Development Center in Kampala, Uganda.

Pray for Rev. James Bab and the South Sudanese refugee church in Uganda, that they'll be strengthened spiritually while living as refugees, and be able to be reunited with their families.
