Please pray for Kena


Kena Willis and kidsWe received a call at 2 a.m. that Kena has given birth to their fourth child yesterday. Afterwards however, she has been bleeding and the doctor in the tribe was unable to stop the bleeding. Then weather and time of day prevented the plane from evacuating her to the nearest hospital. Therefore we request urgent prayer for Kena, and also for Willis and the children.

Kena is the lead teacher for the Sunday school and ladies ministry in the tribe as well as heading up the literacy program, leading the local women’s group, providing medical help where needed, along with being a wife and mother of four beautiful children. She is also our adopted daughter, and her children are like grandchildren to us.

Willis is a shepherd to the flock of Wusuraambya believers. He is a prayer warrior, a Bible teacher, an evangelist, and a servant to many. He has been involved in every outreach since (and including) 2005. He has been beaten publicly and privately because of his faith and service to the Lord.

Satan has been unsuccessful at stopping Willis and Kena through other people. Is Kena’s uncontrolled bleeding just another way that Satan is trying to interfere with what God is doing in Wusuraambya? But Jesus said, “on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hades will not overcome it.” (Matthew 16:18) Pray that God will completely heal Kena, and by doing so, defeat Satan’s efforts in Wusuraambya.

Thank you for praying!

Your brother and sister in Christ,

Outreach begins Monday in Wusuraambya


Dear praying friends,

Please be praying as the Wusuraambya believers begin a new outreach into the village where we live on Monday afternoon, April 16. There has been much anticipation in the village after the believers came together last weekend to build a large shelter for the teaching.

  • Pray for the believers as they prepare to co-teach through the Bible beginning with creation
  • Pray for good and consistent attendance throughout the 3-1/2 months of teaching
  • Pray that the unbelievers will recognize their need for Christ
  • Pray that Satan would be prevented from interrupting the teaching in any way (previously someone burnt down the teaching house just before the Gospel was presented and many people never returned for the most important part of the teaching)

Thanks for your partnership in seeing our Wusuraambya neighbours freed from Satan’s stronghold.

Serving together in Christ,

Andrew & Cathy Goud
