Streams of Mercy

A Heartfelt Cry!

Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few  (Matthew 9:37)

Laurie and Janis are just two retired people who were led by the Lord to this ministry over 10 years ago. All that time they have largely financed our missions personally and have now used up most of their resources. Also Laurie celebrates his 90th  birthday in July so his ability to undertake foreign missions is becoming much reduced.

However, the needs and the opportunities are on the increase.   Having undertaken 4 missions  between September 2016 and March 2017  we had to cancel our participation in a proposed mission to Angola this year - that is on hold possibly for 2018.  Meanwhile Pastor Israel from DR Congo went instead and we await his report.

Today ( 19th May) we received the following invitation for another mission in India.

'We request to host you to be in Telangana State, South India 2017 Your trip will Include * A One -day pastor's conference . * A Two-Night open area gospel meetings . * Baptism service . * Multiple church services throughout the week. * Home to home evangelism in tribal villages. * Ministry among the orphanage children and Rag Pickers children .

To conduct pastors seminars, women seminars and youth retreat and VBS programmers . Yours and His service Pastor B.Veeranna   Serve to save ministries Hyderabad .A.P South India Please see our website: www.wix.com/christ4allbukya/servetosaveministries '

We are not able to undertake this personally .  

In Mattew 9: 35-38 we read: 35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.

WHAT WE NEED ARE PEOPLE CALLED BY THE LORD AND EQUIPPED BY HIM  TO  JOIN US AND HELP US FULFIL THS MINISTRY. WE ALSO NEED FINANCIAL PROVISION  AND PEOPLE WHO WILL PRAY FOR THOSE MINISTERING IN THESE PLACES.    PEOPLE WHO WILL PRAY, GIVE, AND GO.

Pastor Jimmy's Eye Clinic - A cause  worth supporting

During the Pandemic Streams of Mercy are still being allowed to operate in the community.  They have been using an integrated approach offering various clinics dealing with family hygiene, nutrition, domestic violence  and the Gospel  as well as visual problems, which are very common and often go untreated.  People were given an eye test The optician can then find the right spectacles for the person from the many that were donated.                                                   Today was a special day for these children who have been suffering from bad eyesight  from childhood, this young boy was very excited he told me that now that we have given him specs he is to study get his degree get employed and his money will be used for helping those with eye problems.  Other children have problems needing other treatments which Pastor Jimmy hopes to be able to arrange. The need is very great.   Pastor Jimmy writes;    thank you for the spectacles they are giving us an opportunity to preach the gospel.  So far we have reached 2000 people who have got the spectacles, 40 eye operations, 1200 eye treatments, it is great to see how many people with eye problems are flocking to the office. We already have partnership with Masafu hospital eye department .As long us we have allowance for them we are free to move with them wherever. The challenge we now have out of all this people we have over 1000 people with cataracts and they need operation where our opticians here cant do. The government is also appealing to us for help in this. I am trying to apply to other international organisation who can send volunteer opticians to come and do operations.      ...

Funding needed

| 06th August 2019 | Blogging

We  have collected a lot of very  useful and needed items for Uganda but need help with funding the purchase  and shipping of the container. We also need help at this time with school fees for a number of children, in Uganda, DR Congo and Zambia. Pastor Israel in DR Congo has severed connection with his church to concentrate on Streams of Mercy ministry, which now includes churches as well as prisons and village ministry.  They do need more support now.  They would like some funding to help set up a poultry project which would give them a steady source of income. Pastor Samuel in Zambia  is now  an ordained minister and leads a church which meets  in a large tent on land which Streams of Mercy have  purchased.  This work could also benefit from  more support  as whenever they do ministry in a prison they try to take  in much needed aid - usually  food or toiletries. If you can help us in any  way with these needs please email us at  streamsofmercy.lcc@gmail.co.uk and we  will give you details of how to donate.   Many thanks Janis Homewood International director....

An agricultural project

| 08th March 2019 | Blogging

Retired Colonel and Mrs William Rwolekya   have started an agricultural project growing greens and also fruit trees. These are irrigated by hand daily using different teams of women each day. The water is drawn from a well on the colonel’s land.  An irrigation system using a solar pump and preferably fitted to a well in the actual field would be a great help. This is a very good project which has also experimented with organic and inorganic fertilizers and proved that the results from organic fertilizing far exceed those from the inorganic fertilizers. The Colonel also started to teach carpentry and animal husbandry. A lot of problems with vision were reported. Some of these may simply need spectacles, others may need medical or surgical treatment. But there was also a report of problems with disabled, blind and deaf children.  Other needs were more to do with church buildings needing completion and keyboards and PA systems requested to help with the evangelistic outreach of these churches. In one centre 15 pastors were present from the local churches - there does seem to be a united effort for outreach in the churches. There was a need for pastors to have bicycles to enable them to cover the distances they have to travel to visit people in their areas. One Officer requested a motorcycle as he needs to go to meetings and other visits which are too far away to go by cycle. Some pastors requested laptops – we were able to supply the officer at the resettlement centre with one we had taken out with us. Sponsorship for orphan children was also requested –six orphans were singled out in one centre as being in particular need. One Pastor’s widow has five children in need of support for school fees, and  two SA Officers need help with school fees....
