And finally, we thank each of you for your faithfulness in prayer, and we appreciate so much being part of the Body of Christ with you. While you may not have physically gone with us to Uganda, in the Lord’s eyes and ours, you were serving alongside us, so that our ministry could be fruitful and God-honoring. We may not know the final results of this labor, yours and ours, this side of Glory, but we know that your partnership with us in prayer has been a vital support during this mission.
Apwoyo matek (thanks very much), and Lubanga omini gum (God bless you)!
