THIS IS PURE RELIGION...

The Lord's half brother, James, leader of the church of Jerusalem, wrote that "pure religion is to visit and help the widows and orphans in distress and to keep one's self unspotted from the world."

I met such a person on Facebook in the, autumn of 2014. Her name is Evangelist Kemigisa Dinah of GOD'S GRACE MINISTRIES, UGANDA.

I was drawn to this young woman of God by the way she loved the Lord and His children.

We became quick friends sometime around October or November and by December, I was moved to start supporting her ministry.

Dinah had started out to be a Gospel singer. I had,seen one of her videos. It was well produced. But, the Lord had other plans.

When He made His plans known to Dinah, she sold everything of value to start her ministry to widows and orphans affected by the HIV/ AIDS epidemic which tragically took many lives to the fact that the average age of Uganda was 14. The older ones kept dying.

I had just been through my second divorce and had money available from the sale of my house. This made it possible to help this ministry more substantially than I could otherwise do. It also made it possible for me to travel over 7,000 miles on a 15- hour flight to Uganda in late March of 2015 which would have been impossible under my normal financial situation. I never earned much money.

Dinah invited me over to see what was happening in the ministry as one of her only outside and largest donors. Her pastor invited me to preach at His church, Cornerstone Church Fort Portal. Dinah had been worship leader there.

After much prayer, I accepted their invitation, trusting the Lord to make every provision and, especially, to give me the message He designated for the people.

I wrote about this experience in my other testimony.

It was through this friendship that I met Bob Olynyk. He, too, is a FACEBOOK friend of Dinah as He, too, loves to minister to children.

I had thought the Lord had wanted me to marry this dear, young woman because of something said by a person I believed to be a prophet. It does seem strange but God works in mysterious ways.

In the meantime, over here in the states, I had come to know and befriend another woman of God. We attended a church outreach. She and her husband and I also went to a Bible Study at a mutual friend's house.

My friend, Joan, drove and, on the way to Bible Study, I would talk about Dinah and her ministry and my relationship with her.

Joan took this all to heart.

In the,summer of 2016, Joan's husband died of stomach cancer. Around that same time, Dinah broke off our relationship, saying "God did not approve of it".

I continued to support her ministry as I realized that was God's way of working. He may have used that relationship to motivate me to travel that distance, preach my first sermon by the power of the Holy Spirit and get Joan involved through hearing from me.

Later, Joan and I were married. She said she always wanted a man of God for a husband. She was impressed that I attended that church outreach program on my own, faithfully every week, without being prompted or dragged by a wife or girlfriend.

She was also moved by my dedication to the Lord and Dinah. She said she wished she was loved as much as I loved Dinah.

I do not say this to boast of myself but to illustrate how God works to make His plan happen.

Joan and I gave no assets or income outside of Social Security. Joan has two small pensions from her late husband's work.

Joan was and is very happy to help support GOD'S GRACE MINISTRIES UGANDA and the young woman who has devoted her life to the Lord and his people.

In the meantime, I had the pleasure of meeting Bob Olynyk who, after dining and speaking with me, felt/ prophesied that Joan and I would go to Uganda and she would be very blessed and have a life changing experience. That would be great!

I had contracted blood clots from the long flight but, if the Lord sends us, I will take the necessary steps to prevent that from happening again.

Since going to Uganda, I have done more with my music and have created about 25 songs from Scripture. I have 2 CDs.

I also have an album HUMBLE YOURSELF online through SPOTIFY.

Humble Yourself is the first song I created from Scripture. It's from I Peter with lines from psalms and the gospel of Luke.

"All things work together for good to those who love God and are the called according to His purpose".
