In a Seven days amazing, wonderful and inspirational discipleship meetings held at Nandere village church in Budaka district, Pastor Ivan Ssewankambo focused on training not only the community pastors but also different ministers mostly in Budaka Eastern Uganda Region. Through this training, Pastor Ivan gave out 12 bibles to those that attended and completed the training.
As we all know that its all Christians’ responsibility to go and share the gospel and teach others to observe what Christ has commanded us to do. Matthew 4:9 ‘And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men’ , So through these training ministers are equipped ,empowered to becoming fishers of men and continue serving the Lord as well as the communities they live in as Christ commanded us to do.
One of member that has been attending these Discipleship trainings said ‘Discipleship trainings have been a life-giving moment and thank God for Pastor Ivan Ssewankambo who the spirit of the Lord has revealed a lot of things that he has thought us. Ironic how even in full time ministry, one can lose focus on Jesus. Discipleship training has been a place where I have been shown the love of the gospel and the truth of the gospel. Each time I’ve been pointed back to my Savior and His strength has been shown to give me the endurance to keep seeking Him and loving others, despite any difficulty. The view of myself is always reshifted back to the Father as I allow the word to pierce the dark, sad and lonely places of my heart. What a beautiful gift that we do not run this race alone. I am so grateful that Jesus has placed Pr.Ivan Ssewankambo in my life to steer me back towards Him.”
