Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city… Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”
(Jeremiah 29:7, Psalm 122:6-7)
In preparation for the beginning of a new Academic Year of the University, we held a special Prophetic Prayer Walk on Friday 28th July to ransack the enemy that always looms around that gate. The theme was ‘Peace’ – and we enthroned the Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace; we prayed for the peace of Kyambogo hill as our Jerusalem, and we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. We did it again on Monday 28th August 2017, and this time a powerful prayer meeting in front of the Senate Building; we were joined by the University Bursar and the Chief Internal Auditor among other officials. The Vice Chancellor recognizes the contribution of these prayers to the peace and development of this University. Prophet Jeremiah and King David give us inspiration and encouragement to pray for our city – the opening Scriptures above are actively calling us to action today.
Meanwhile, it is time to build! Kakumba Chapel embarked on the vertical extension of the Chapel Hall to create more working space and the Musiime Hall – a multi-purpose Hall which will majorly be used as a Teens’ Chapel, and also for fellowships, meetings, parties, short courses and University lectures and exams. The motivation of these physical development actions is the Gospel; we want the good news of Jesus Christ to reach more and deeper, and to equip more people to go and proclaim the same. The gospel liberates and gives life and light. Our teens need deliberate focus; they are in transition from being children to becoming adults, and are many times lost in between; yet they face potentially confusing circumstances both from internal changes happening in their bodies and from external influence by peers real and virtual. Listen to the progress update and seize your opportunity to participate in this noble cause of building.
At least Ugx 86 million has already been spent (in the first five weeks of the construction work), and the foundation and gallery structures are up. Thank you for your giving! Unfortunately, work has temporarily stalled as we raise more money for next tasks. The next activities include pushing the columns higher and casting the Second Floor slab (the Musiime Hall). Meanwhile the University Top Management commended and blessed the project in their last seating, and are looking forward to its successful completion; The Chapel Council is organizing a Fundraising Tea Party on Saturday 09th Sept, and a Home Coming / Harvest Sunday next month will also be a fundraising event for the same. I call upon you to support the physical prosperity and peace through your generous contribution to the building project at hand – the Musiime Hall Project, to cost us Ugx 300 million (this phase).
