Proctor Passages

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord;

We have been back in Uganda now for 2 1/2 months, and have 2 months left to go before we move back to the states. It has been quite a whirlwind of activity thus far, and here are a few highlights and prayer requests.

We’ve been visiting each of the OPCU congregations that we have worked with over the past 8 years, saying “goodbye” to each of them. It has been both tearful and joyful. One particularly joyful experience was to be able to say “goodbye” to the congregation in Kama on the same day it was being particularized as a congregation. This little mission work had been developing for 2 years, and on the day that we visited, we were privileged to take part in seeing 10 adults make their public profession of faith, and two Ruling Elders and 2 Deacons ordained. A number of others have transferred from the “mother” congregation in Bukonde, to make a congregation of about 25 in a predominately Muslim area.

The Mbale presbytery of the OPCU held a “farewell” dinner for the Proctor family as well as Brian and Dorothy Wingard on April 2nd. This was an extremely sweet time of fellowship and a time of rejoicing in how the Lord has matured this group of men over the years. It is impossible to describe the enormous strides these brothers have taken, but suffice it to say that for the past two years or so, I have returned from each presbytery meeting encouraged and strengthened in my love for the brothers and my thanksgiving to Christ Jesus for His gracious work through and in them.

One particular evangelistic story, I simply must relate:

<

p>About a month or so, I met a young Muslim lady whose father is a very prominent businessman in town. In the course of our conversation, she told me “you know, there’s not much difference between Islam and Christianity – both tell you to do good things, and both tell you about angels and God and stuff like that. The only real difference is Jesus.”
