Touching Lives Through Cell
Jane Okoche is a cell member of E2A4D in Bweyogerere, eastern Kampala. Almost a year ago, Jane travelled to her village in eastern Uganda where she met Scovia, a 17 year-old girl who had been impregnated and left vulnerable.
“She had been advised by her sister to abort the baby but I told her not to because it is sin before God,” Jane says.
Moved with compassion, Jane decided to bring Scovia with her back to Kampala.
“My family and I took care of her and introduced her to our cell group. We also brought her to church every Sunday,” she says.
At church, Scovia confessed Christ and was prayed for. The cell persistently prayed for her to have a normal delivery. And indeed God granted her a normal delivery. Scovia delivered a healthy baby girl whom they named Grace because she survived by God’s grace.
“God granted this baby favour before people. The child received gifts and everything required to clothe her from cell group members. I am grateful to my family and the cell group for their commitment and care which helped Scovia experience God’s unfailing love,” she says.
June, our month of focused seed projects in the community, is fast approaching. Let’s plan to care for our families, communities and nations through small acts of love.
