“As a way to remember this day, 1st December 2022, I request that we always have daily morning prayers for people in offices and a weekly one for all security personnel who be in the field. I will always ask what you read on a weekly basis and the best will be rewarded.” This was said by Capt. (Rtd) Vincent Spaka Bekunda, the Director Millennium Security Limited after receiving a donation of New Testament Bibles.
As a way to have the Bible in Every Home, Hand, Heart, Hospital and Hotel, the Bible Society of Uganda (BSU) donated New Testament Bibles with Proverbs and Psalms to local security guards under Millennium Security Limited in Mbarara City. Reading from Psalm 27:1 (Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain), the guards were filled by joy to learn that God is the Chief Guard and they need to acknowledge His presence every time they are on duty since they are His representatives.
BSU also reached out to the girls under Kicunguro Angle Center in Sheema District with New Testament Bibles. The Center receives girls who get early pregnancies and are rejected by parents, take care of them, help them in delivery and later re-connect them to parents or take them back to school. The girls, most of them who were receiving the Bible for the first time, were filled with joy devoted to read the book of Proverbs for the month of December (a chapter per day) and later start on New Testament on 1st January 2023.
The Word of God continues to bring joy to lives of many people across Uganda. Thanks to all partners and supporters that continue to provide funds and resources to enable the distribution of God’s Word in different parts of the country. God’s Word Life for All.
