Redressing the Balance

Wonderful News!

Abraham has sent encouraging news about a member of our Global Challenge family, Loyce.

Loyce, who has been helped by individual supporters towards treatment for breast cancer during the past 12 to 18 months, is responding to treatment. Abraham writes: “I want to thank you all for praying and supporting us with Loyce. We rejoice that her life seems to be getting better and better. God has worked it out for her. Her recent review brought wonderful news. The doctors said the cancer is no longer a threat to her and have changed her reviews. Instead of reporting to Mulago Hospital every three weeks, she will now be seen after every three months. This is a good sign. Please rejoice with us.“

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4: 4-7 NIV

Anne sharing the good news about Loyce at Queens Road Baptist Church

On Sunday 18th April 2021, Global Challenge Trustee, Anne Cave, shared this good news about Loyce with the church family at Queens Road Baptist Church. Here is a precise of her message, with the introduction from the Minister:

Dr Rev Stephen Cave: “We love hearing stories about healing, and Anne’s just going to lead us into one now.”
Anne: “Morning. All the time that we’ve worked and partnered with people in UgandaI’d never actually heard about what was happening about breast cancer. An awareness campaign began and, because Uganda is a low income resource country, they did a study in 2014 to find out how much was actually being done. At that time only 5% of people got any sort of surgery or procedure done from all the incidents of breast cancer. In 2019 our coordinator in Soroti, Pastor Abraham, asked us to pray for a lady that he had taken into his household with his wife, Irene, because she had breast cancer. It was quite a shock for me! He asked for prayer and he also asked for support with any finance towards medical costs and travelling expenses because this young lady Loyce had to go to the national referral hospital in Kampala which is quite a way away. Lots of you will know that journey between Kampala and Soroti and we always do it in a fairly comfortable vehicle but doing that on public transport very often is quite difficult.

The reason I’m talking about it now is because a few weeks ago I had a message from Abraham asking us to rejoice with him that Loyce had had a good report from her doctor and she now doesn’t need to go every three weeks to Kampala, only for a review every three months. So he wants us to rejoice with him that God has sustained and he sent through a video of Loyce also giving thanks to God, to Pastor Abraham and his family and to us as supporters.”
