We have a few updates and testimonies to share with you. God is continuing to work in Uganda! Just three days ago we met with two of the women of the Karamojong Bible study (In the picture). The woman who acts as the leader of the group expressed her continued trust in Jesus, although they are enduring some persecution as a direct result of their new faith in Christ. However, she also testified that her and her family had been struggling for quite some time with malaria, but since we shared theLord with them and prayed for them, all of them have been delivered and not one person has malaria in her home! The other woman also testified that she has AIDS and though she was getting some pills to help her she continued to grow weaker and weaker. Once she began fellowshipping with us she testified that she has since gotten much stronger and has felt much better. She had her blood tested in a local clinic and they said her blood indicators were improving. Praise God! These people have a lot of challenges to overcome in order to follow Christ, but praise be to God they are still standing. They also decided as a group to begin meeting every evening house-to-house to pray together. Please pray for them and for the work of the gospel to prevail in their lives.

Please continue to pray for us and for Laborers to be raised up out ofAfrica. Right now we are receiving applications for the first year ofthe Discipleship School. We will be accepting twelve who have a heart to be missionaries. This will be a formative year in which we lay the foundation for sending out future missionaries to North Africa and unreached nations.

We are anticipating the upcoming internship and need prayer that God would release all the finances to run to program including housing, food, transportation, and training for these first twelve students. The total increase in our costs will be between $400-500 dollars per month. Please keep these needs in your prayers. We are blessed to know you, and thank God for you.

In the Love and service of Jesus Christ,
Jesse and Rachelle Digges

Hi Precious Digges family! My prayers are with you AND my awe and wonder at what is being done in Africa because you are there! It's comforting to see your blog and your facebook...to feel more connected. Nothing of great value comes without great cost. Do you keep a running prayer list of specific needs here on your blog? Love you guys.
