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 Twelve: Sunday 24.06.2012

Today we went to an Anglican church. I suppose technically it isn’t Anglican – the Ugandan Anglican church broke away when the Anglican church ordained gay bishops. It’s officially called the Church of Uganda.

It was an interesting service – a little too Pentecostal to be Anglican and a little too Anglican to be Pentecostal. There wasn’t communion, but there was an altar call and approx. 80 people went to the front to accept Jesus.

Afterwards, Beth took us to see her uni campus, and then we walked through town so Esther could buy some things. I bought some dark chocolate but nothing else. I came prepared with most things, so I didn’t need much.

Anne had 2 interviews about Bushikori, one for TV and one for radio, so we didn’t see her much during the day.

Being a day of rest, when I got home I went to bed for a nap, then did some reading until tea time. After dinner, David, Anne and I talked about the rise of the gay agenda in Australia. They don’t have anything like it here – it is punishable by death. David was amazed at how Christians in the West are able to stand firm in spite of the growth of feminism, the gay agenda, etc, both within and outside of the church. I pointed out that we thought much the same thing with their government corruption, bribes and general poverty, and that in both cases the answer was to turn to God, to read and obey His Word.
