We were able to join the team on Thursday and Friday January 20-21 to bring food and supplies for the team and pastor’s conference. Many people responded to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we witnessed a great move of the Holy Spirit as these youth saturated this area with the gospel through evangelsitic rallies, pastor’s training and a crusade with Jesus Film shared after the crusade meetings each night of Monday – Friday, January 17-21, 2011.

In the ‘Horn’ of Africa close to the borders of Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo CTA has targeted several villages for community transformation.
If you look at www.henrysvillage.org you can see an example of what this transformation looks like. Please pray for CTA as they connect partner ministries and churches to these targeted villages for ‘Community Transformation’.

Meet Head Master Gersy, as he stands beside the sign leading to his village, school and office on top of a hill in Kabwohe, Uganda.
With the help of some special gifts from individuals (Randy & Rita) and a bibles study (Therapy Mgmt Corp) in Tampa, FL – CTA will carry a team of USA/Ugandans to set a water system in this village close to Gersy’s school.
We consider Gersy and his wife Joy modern day heroes because they have given their lives to help educate the orphans and vernerable children in their area of Uganda. Please pray for us and Joy and Gersy as they invest in the lives of the future leaders of Uganda.
We met this Pastor in 2008 in Kabali, Uganda close to the border of Rwanda on this bicycle. He asked if he could speak to me and thank me for the bicycle. I said there is no way CTA provided that bicycle as we give new bicycles away.
The Pastor said; “no you don’t understand Pastor Ken I received this bicycle in 2005 in Mbarara, Uganda (about 200 KLM away) and I’ve been using it for ministry in this area ever since.
FBC McComb, MS and Pastor Woody Rimes are also raising money for bicycles now for an upcoming conference in Kazo, Uganda. Please pray for us and help us mobilbize the gospel as we train and equip for the work of the ministry through out the remote areas of Uganda.
For about $85 each we can purchase a bicycle in country and have it assembled by local church members to expand the kingdom of God . If you would like to help us you can donate through our paypal account on this page or look at the contact page for address if you want to send a check. We are also buying bibles in their local language at $10 each.
In Kabwohe, Uganda on top of a mountain nearby is Joy and Gersey’s School where 120 orphans and vernerable children are being educated by Head Master Gersey who has been retired from the education system of Uganda for years. He took what pension monies he received for his service to the country and used it to reinvest in these children that would not be afforded education without his generosity.
Pictured with the children is Renate Galyean Director of Sarah & Joseph Foundation of CTA , Ivonne Pike, and Kim Riezenwitz who joined us in June of 2010 to seek opportunities like this water project in Kabwohe, Uganda.
They send a donkey down the bottom of the hill twice a day to draw water for their needs. Please help us place a water system by the school so they won’t have to depend on the transporting of water to this sight. We have already received some monies for this project but need about $1500 more dollars to purchase a tank and design a rain water catching system with a simple filter. We have teams coming with us in January and February who can help with the construction but we could use your help.
More than 68% of all desease is caused from lack of access to clean water in Uganda, this is trully a great way to validate the Gospel of Jesus Christ! You can go to the donate button on our site or send resources to the address listed under the Contact Page of this site.
