Several nights ago I had a dream and I just can’t get it out of my mind maybe bloging about it will help me.

Here it is:

I was in the back seat of a taxi with a pregnant white lady about to give birth. Her White husband was driving the taxi and He began to ask me to please deliver the baby and He knew He would not make it to the hospital in time. I told Him I had never done that before and I didn’t think I could. All the sudden the lady was giving birth and the the next thing I knew the baby was in my hands. It was a black baby and the Father looked at me for explanation and I gave it. I said don’t worry, your wife has not committed adultery this is a spiritual baby. It represents the orphans of Africa.

With those words the alarm sounded 3:40 am letting me know it’s time for work. The dream seemed so real I just can’t shake it.

In the Natural we just received word that food prices had doubled in Uganda due to the devalued American dollar. We have about 30 children in an orphanage in Entebee Uganda and we are just making it right now. I felt overwhelmed with “where are we going to come up with more money?”. That could have caused the dream. Or maybe it was the new license plates on my car that has MD on them as I have been joking I am now Dr John MD. Or maybe it’s because my spiritual kids Travis and Christy Kolder  just had a baby.

Or maybe just maybe we are to birth something in prayer to see the spirit of adoption released from Abba Father himself. I know this Jesus loves the children and His Father is the Father to the Fatherless. Join with me as we pray for the Lord to visit the orphans of Africa, God knows we don’t handle visitations well here in the states. Father visit the children with your grace and mercy and release provision for them. In Jesus name Amen.

Alma Jones hits the mission field in Her 70’s whats your excuse !!! I had just come back from my 2nd trip to Uganda and was sharing about the needs of the orphaned children. I noticed in the back of the church Alma Jones was emotionally moved. As soon as the service was over I checked with Alma to see what was going on. She explained that when She was 18 years old She felt the Lord calling Her to the same east African region that I had been to. In those days a single woman would not have found Her way through Bible college and then sent alone into such need. Life handed Her some curve balls and here She was at 72 thinking of what could have been. I reminded Her that God’s callings are sure. If God called Her then She is called Now.

She took that to be the word of the Lord and a short time later She was In Uganda. She went on Her first stay with Dave and Ruth Christian who spent about 1 year training christian leaders in Uganda. When Dave and Ruth returned home She stayed and has been there for around 4 years.

On a past trip I got to stay with Alma and see up close what the Lord is doing with Her. She has been teaching leaders how to study the Bible. While there we spent a lot of time with a young man in His teens who was actually pastoring a church due to the fact that the residing pastor had left in a hurry with big issues. No one was qualified to step into that position so this young man was chosen due to that fact that Alma had been mentoring Him. Here She is after Her ride broke down in the field and had to drive back in the back of a truck.
