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.” 

Proctor Passages

Yesterday, Sunday January 27th, began a painfully joyous part of my ministry in Uganda. Over the next few months, we are planning to visit each of the OPCU congregations with whom we are working, and tell them “goodbye.” There were tears on both sides, and will be many tears in the weeks to come. I […]

Dear praying brothers and sisters; Thank you so much for your prayers for our family’s travels over the past week. It’s been quite a ride, and we were keenly aware of the prayers on our behalf. Meredith started feeling badly last Tuesday, before we left Mbale. We took her to the hospital on 3 different […]

Proctor Passages: May 2010

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Dear praying brothers and sisters; Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers for the ministry here in Uganda and for our family. We’ve hit a bit of a bump in the road, which we would appreciate your prayers for. Meredith has been diagnosed with endometrial adenocarcinoma (meaning it’s malignant). We believe it has been […]

Proctor Passages: 2009 Year in Review

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

“…and on this rock I will build my church”

The promise of Christ Jesus, that on the rock of Peter’s declaration of faith His church would be built, has proved faithful for the last 2,000 years. This gracious promise has proved faithful here in Mbale, Uganda, in the year 2009 as well. It has been a wonderful privilege and blessing to be a small part of God’s purpose of glorifying His name amongst every tongue, tribe, and nation.

The mission field seems to be a place of stark contrasts — great advances accompanied by great discouragements. The common denominator seems to be that God is doing something great! This has been our experience this past year.

Pray for Pakistani Christians

From a Christianity Today report: Pakistan Christians Burned to Death in Islamist Attacks.

What is the principal intention of this commission; to disciple all nations. Matheµteusate — “Admit them disciples; do your utmost to make the nations Christian nations;” not, “Go to the nations, and denounce the judgments of God against them, as Jonah against Nineveh, and as the other Old-Testament prophets” (though they had reason enough to […]
