Karamojong of Uganda

(CARE-ah-muh-jong) – Praise God for a 9-year-old Karamojong boy who has begun a soccer ministry near his village! A few months back, Frank cleared a field just outside his home so that he and other young boys could play soccer together. His father, Amos, is using this as an outreach program to the children in the surrounding villages, providing a safe place to have fellowship and fun. Amos shares Bible stories during this time. He coaches the children, providing a tangible expression of our patient, loving Father. Pray for Frank to continue to be courageous and strong in the Lord. Pray 1 Timothy 4:12 (NASB) over him, asking that he will “let no one look down on [his] youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, show [himself] an example of those who believe.” Pray that just as this father and son have cleared this physical space for Jesus, the boys who come will desire to make a way for Jesus in their hearts.
