Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is many things: perfect, allpowerful,
all-knowing, loving. He is also unchanging. His love is constant and completely dependable, no matter what we’ve done or what our circumstances are. God is good all the time.
Through much prayer, and some vaccinations, I made my preparations for the Uganda Mission outreach event. Traveling in Uganda was the another very amazing trip of my life. The Mission trip was a great success. The team was headed by me and two otherteam members: Benjamin from the Netherlands, and Pastor Panalla from India. AlsoRev. Kashaia from Matugga, Unganda, also our host. Benjamin and I landed in Kampala, Uganda on the 19th of July and Panalla arrived on the 22nd of July. Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Psalm 105:1
Mission Outreach Kampala Uganda:
Kampala is the capital and largest city of Uganda. Rev. Vicent K. Kahaija from New Hope .Church in Matugga, with whom I have worked in the past, picked us up and drove us to Wingate Guesthouse, where we stayed the next few days. It is near Kampala. On the second day, our neighbor Simon took me to his uncle’s house. I preached and after thesermon God anointed 3 young women and they gave their life to Jesus. Praise God.
New Hope Church; Kiti:
We began our outreach officially at New Hope Church in Kiti, close to Kampala.Benjamin and I preached the word of God. People were touched by Holy Spirit. As we prayed for people, healing began to be effected in some of them. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6. What comfort we find in a God that loves us in spite of ourselves. God loves you and He wants you to know this
The following day we had more meetings in the mother church in Matugga. The church is about 300 members. People were blessed. According to the words of David Smithers: “God has huge plans for the world today. He is not content to merely establish a handful of struggling churches among each tongue, tribe and nation. Even now He is preparing and empowering His Church to carry the seeds of revival to the uttermost ends of the earth.” This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:8

Rubacca Miracle Center Church: We visited the biggest Church in Kampala along with William and Robert Kayanja, Rubacca Miracle Center Church. It was an open air preaching. The church currently has over 20,000 members but perhaps about 1000 people attended the event. People were excited and happy to have a German preacher at their place. I’ve known this congregation since about 1993, when I was in Kampala ministering with AOG.
Pastor Ponnalla and I were called out on the stage and preached for about 5 minutes in the open air, and it was transferred globally via TV. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. Mark 8:35. Through this event I met an old friend of mine, Maureen, who is now the wife of Pastor Mark Mukisa of Real Life Church in Kampala. It was great to see her again.
Real Life Church in Kampala:
Benjamin stayed at another friend’s church in Kampala. He also ministered to the people. It was a great time.
Apostolic Anointed Church, Kisuero Village: I was invited to Hoima City, to the Apostolic Anointed Church; a bigger church of about 400 people. I was accompanied by my friend Simon from Uganda.

Jimmy and I, He came back to Jesus
We stayed in the village Kisuero. We ministered in the Apostolic Anointed Church there. According to Martin Luther: God has given believers the responsibility of spreading the Gospel to all the world, and we need to use all at our disposal to accomplish this task. “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”2 Corinthians 5:20. The village has no electrical supply as in the days when Jesus was on the earth. It turns out I was the first white man ever to have visited this village. I stayed there for 5 days. One man from the village came and told me that his wife had a dream from God before I came. She dreamed of a white man who would visit their house and pray for them. So he said the dream was fulfilled by my visit! I preached and ministered there for 4 days, and along with the local pastor we prayed for many. There are so many HIV infected people there.
Healings happened there
Healing the sick
Preaching overnight in the Mother Church, 300 people there.
In the evening we were invited by another family to pray for them. The Bible speaks often of miraculous healing through the work of Jesus Christ and through faith in God. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and mighty power of God, we were given victory over many practices of witchcraft and demons. Physical sickness; like fevers, headaches, pains in the body, in the stomach, in the back and other sicknesses were healed. Glory to God in the highest. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Unfortunately, due to weather or diet changes, Simon and I were badly attacked by diarrhea and it was a difficult time getting over it. One night I had a strong demon attack; most likely a witch travelling in her human spirit,
came to visit me in the likeness of a beautiful woman. I woke up and chased her away in the name of Jesus. Satan was angry we had destroyed some of his kingdom in Kisuero.
Later, on a Friday evening, I was invited to preach in the overnight prayer meetings at the Mother Church. I started to preach at midnight. About 400 people were attended. At 1 am they drove me home to the Village where I stayed. After that I had to travel to Kasese near the Congo border. I visited Pastor Jehu Muwongo Way of Salvation Ministries Church. A brother from the Apostolic Anointed Church drove me the first 14 km by car, a typical African adventure trip. It was an all gravel road, and took 4 hours.
Adventurous roads in Africa
Kasese city market
The last 150 km I did with Pastor Jehu, in a National Africa bus, and it took another 3 hours. It was a tiresome journey. In Kasese it is highly difficult, if not impossible, to forecast what the weather will be like at a certain time in a very precise place. It is much dryer climate when compared to Hoima or Kampala. On the 2nd of August I visited Pastor Muwongo of “Way of Salvation Church”, where a seminar was conducted. I preached for 1.5 hours in the seminar with Pastor Jehu. Other churches were gathered together at the seminar. We prayed for the physically sick people and they were healed. Shorter legs grew out too. Thank God. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
Seminar-a few churches were there
Legs grew out
The next day Pastor Jehu and some others offered me a short Safari sightseeing along the Queen Elizabeth National Park. We saw some antelopes, elephants, a big death lizard, hippopotamus, and some other animals. It was nice to see and enjoy the wildlife of Africa. It was a nice ride.
In the evening with Pastor Jehu. We had a soul winning program and water baptism in the river Nyamwamba. 6 people were baptized by me in the name of the Father, Holy Spirit, and Son. Praise God. My last day in Kasese along with Pastor Joshua from AOG Church. We visited an orphan home of AOG’s. I gave them some amount of money to get food for the orphans.

Afterward, I travelled back 8 hours in a bus to the busy Kampala. It was a somewhat tiring journey. Rev. Kashia picked me up. Simon, who was with me in Kisuero, committed his life to Jesus, he burned all his witchcraft things in his yard. Somebody wanted to bewitch him. We prayed for him. God anointed him, he got saved and free from such evil demons.
his witchcraft things.
Going back to the airport in Kampala, to fly back to the Netherlands, was a memorable journey because it is 30 km away from the city and there is always a huge traffic jams on Sundays. My driver, the son of Maureen, had to go through at sometimes 80km per hour through two lanes of cars and used his horn to clear the way. It was a great experience but risky to travel on such a busy road and a bit dangerous. I had to pray in tongues but at the last we reached our destination and I breathed freely. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 In my absence, Rev. Kashaia and Pastor Ponnala were conducting more outreaches in Kampala. They ministered at a school from New Hope Church, and they conducted a crusade even though numbers were few. He preached 4 days at a crusade in Matugga and 18 people gave their life to Jesus.

During 2 weeks of missions in Uganda, 35 people got saved, and many received physical and spiritual healing and deliverance from sicknesses. I on the other hand, continued to be sick with diarrhea in Uganda, and after 10 days I was not getting much better, so I flew back to Holland and began to feel better. Suddenly though the diarrhea attacked me again. I went to the Tropical Institute in Rotterdam and they conducted an analysis and did all the needful medical blood tests. It was a really hard and unbearable tropical disease which lasted for over a month. So, I cried and prayed to God, and even asked Him: “Is my time to go heaven?” After prayer I got a clear instruction from Him to go to the Healing Room Ministry in Amsterdam, and I finally got healed. When we are sick
and physically weak it is hard to bear the pain because we are all human beings. But our God is a healer. He healed me and brought me back from a bad tropical disease. Praise God for his unconditional love and care. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. James 5:14 And again, we are helping some ministries in Africa and India by sending Bibles. One
Indian Church asked me to buy a projector for them so that they would be able to show the Jesus Movie to people. I do sometimes send money to the AOG Orphan home in Kasese Uganda.
Food for the orphans in Uganda
Bibles for the AOG Church-Kasese Uganda .It is a great opportunity again to support and sow into the Kingdom of God financially through this ministry. As you all may know, Evangelistic Meetings, flight tickets, bibles
for churches, Visas for advancing the Kingdom of God on earth cost money. If you help, than you are also part of the Events we are doing and part of bringing souls to Jesus. God loves a cheerful giver. Thank you. I also appreciate and thanks to all those people who generously donated for Africa outreach mission and for my Doctors bill. God bless everyone abundantly Please do continue to pray for me and our co-workers in order to be more fruitful and soul winning.
