Kevin Janzen introduction of
Patrick Director Founder of Our Father school in Uganda
Speaker for today
Greetings from Uganda. Arrived at midnight last night.
Married to one wife and she's a beautiful woman. Have 2 daughters.
We run the school and medical facility and a clean water well to lift the name of Jesus high.
The late Pastor Ed was in Uganda to train 300 youth. We were expecting him again in December. Shocked to hear of Pastor Ed's passing.
Still saying God is faithful.
Pastor Ed was a friend, pastor, teacher. He spoke at our wedding. Spoke of joy.
We shall see him again. Comfort Jessie his wife.
We are trying to charge our spiritual lives. Jesus knows you.
Pastor Philip has already preached
Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through it. Now a man named Zacchaeus was there; he was a chief tax collector and was rich.
Luke 19:1-2 NET
In Africa the president has to consult the chief before he comes to a village.
The chief tax collector Z had so much but not enough. He needed to see Jesus. He was too short. Pygmies in Africa had big heads and when they fell down they needed help to get up.
Z had a wall bigger than Trump's. Had a friend that wanted to hate God. Prayed with him and he decided to follow Jesus.
Jesus had never met Z but called Z by name. God knows you by name. That's enough. Trust Jesus. He knows you. What is Jesus saying about you? He is ready to stay with you. If it wasn't for Christ I might be in the gutter somewhere.
Now, this is what the Lord says, the one who created you, O Jacob, and formed you, O Israel: "Don't be afraid, for I will protect you. I call you by name, you are mine.
Isaiah 43:1 NET
Look unto Jesus. He knows what you're going through. God knows you and has better plans.
