Just over a month ago we started to see some spiritual warfare taking place in some of the communities we work in in Uganda. Please pray for the churches to stay strong in following God and to keep doing the things they are doing in their communities that are drawing people to Jesus and the church. Also pray for the pastors and their leadership under this spiritual warfare. It appears that people of the Islamic faith are taking notice of the outreach and impact our church partners are having in their community. They are seeing that people are being drawn to the Christian churches we work with and that lives are being changed and commitments are being made to Jesus. In response to this they have built a mosque next to two of the churches and an Islamic school and mosque nearby a third church. The Islamic church is also giving away cows to people who convert to Islam. We are told it feels like they are “competing for people.” Our field staff are encouraging the pastors to stay strong and keep doing what they are doing, but the spiritual warfare can be felt and they are worried.

Haiti • Feb 2019

*URGENT* Protests and violence in Haiti started on Thursday, Feb. 7th, and are still going on. People have been on “lockdown”—remaining in their homes and off the streets to avoid the protests and violence. On Feb. 14 the U.S. Department of State ordered the departure of all non-emergency U.S. citizens and their family members. Airlines have been busy with flights bringing people out of Haiti, however several booking agents like Expedia, have blocked any new bookings for flights bringing people to Haiti. Protesters are demanding that President Jovenel Moise resign from his position, but on Feb. 15th he gave a speech refusing to resign. This has left many feeling the protest won’t end until there is agreed upon resolution to the situation. On Feb. 18th some businesses and banks began opening so people could get some needed supplies, but overall there are concerns and caution in leaving their homes. Also, with little movement on roads taking place for weeks, there is uncertainty as to what supplies will be available. Our Bright Hope staff had not left their home yet, though he was planning to do so today. However, he has been in phone contact with the church partners and they are doing fine. They too have been staying in their homes and village. Please be praying for the people of Haiti. Pray for peace, pray for safety, and pray for wisdom for the nation’s leaders.
