Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Day Four: Saturday 16.06.2012

We had a slow morning, then went into Mbale to go to an internet café. I sorted my emails, but didn’t do much else with the time, although I should have. I actually have some important emails to send (about uni), so I must do that soon. I only cost ₴1500 (about 75c) for an hour.

I spent most of the afternoon reading. We talked a little about some of the missions work that Esther has done (she’s been to the Massai in Kenya, and on a Mercy Ship for 3 years, but has also done other things around the world).

We had dinner with Anne, and she asked if I could teach Sunday school tomorrow. The lesson would run for about half an hour, but I don’t know any other details. I said yes, so I will let you know all about it. I found out at 9PM, so I only had a little prep time, but I usually don’t take much time to prepare. I’ll let you know how it goes!
