We organised Bible interpretation courses with a nearby Chapel. We observed that many church leaders and pastors did not have a background in Bible interpretation nor had they had any training. This has been affecting church members' spiritual growth. Some church leaders have no confidence to preach or to lead Bible studies. After undergoing the training, everyone was extremely excited to start studying the Bible for their own spiritual growth and for preaching purposes.
Our visit to Tanzania was very encouraging for the Executive. It gave them an opportunity to ask questions and many things were clarified for them. There was a suggestion from them to start the SEEDS course. They asked if we could empower one of the Sowers with transport and communication devices.
In Mount Elgon, I had an opportunity to train forty-three people, including a pastor and church leaders. During the SOWERS Level 1 Seminar, four people gave their lives to the Lord and they were baptized. After an Open-Air meeting, three came forward during an invitation and eight people were counseled and committed their lives to the Lord. Pastors were incredibly happy with the SOWERS method of reaching out. We won souls in a short amount of time. They said it is amazingly effective! Some suggested that the SOWERS Programme could be an effective tool in schools. Emmanuel
During the person-to-person and door-to-door evangelism, with Pastors and Church leaders, we won 19 souls and 3 backsliders were restored back to the Lord. It was a good experience for the leaders to see the effectiveness of using a counseling booklet. Emmanuel
The Church in M* is doing so well with the SOWERS Program. They have completed ten open air meetings. They have made an impact in their community with the Gospel. They have started receiving visitors every Sunday and they have brought a young man to the Lord through Sowers open air meeting, who has become so instrumental in their Church. The young man called D* has the zeal for the Lord and for open air meetings.
COVID-19 is a wakeup call to preach the gospel. Many teams are confessing that they were relaxed about going to preach the gospel when the opportunity was there. Message 4 for Level 2 is now making sense of Fruitful Sowing. One said, "Now we are praying for an opportunity of going out, yet we had the opportunity but we were relaxed of going out. May the Lord forgive us and give us another chance. I trust we will not behave the way we used to behave." Emmanuel
In Kim** we had 17 participants who were being trained at Level One Sower. During testimony teaching, 11 participants were discovered that were not saved so I witnessed to them. They believed in the Lord. One of them went and shared her testimony during the open-air meeting.
The SOWERS program is helping many church members to understand the gospel and to know Christ. It helps the Pastor to know the importance of assurance of salvation.
