I love Uganda.

It's a very loving country,

caring country.

But something frightening

is happening

that has potential

to destroy Uganda.

Reject all your sin!

Turn from your sin!

And it is coming

from the outside.

If we don't move fast,

I foresee a lot of

deaths happening.

The fire has already been set.

And I think it is important

to trace it back

to where it is coming from.

Thank you Lord

I'm part of

a leadership team here

at the International

House of Prayer.

We are called to be

a missionary people.

I believe the Lord

is calling me to,

to pray for a great

missionary force, again,

that America's not yet done

sending her sons and daughters

to bring the Gospel

to the nations.

He is coming.

Are you ready?

Since the birth of the church

God has raised up cities

set on a hill,

flaming torches in a dark world,

prayer warriors crying out

day and night.

The International House of

Prayer began in 1999

with a handful of people

and it's grown since then

and so we have about

1,000 full time staff.

There's 84 different departments

and so prayer is, like, center,

and so we have, like,

the prayer division

and all of the different things

that kind of come off that,

the different prayer rooms

and the different

prayer initiatives.

And the marketing

and the global communications

and technology.

Bible school, the music school,

the media school,

the e-school,

the internships.

So, yeah, so it's,

the prayer's the center

but there's a whole lot

that goes on.

Jesus is saying,

"Guys, we're not gonna

put guns in your hand,

you're not gonna

take over the world

with guns and knives and swords.

You're gonna take over the world

by the power of the Holy Spirit.

You're gonna take over the world

by preaching words

that slay the hardest

of hearts."

We also broadcast out

to TV networks

as well as

over the internet and we,

we broadcast about a million

video hours a month.

It does reach 160, 170 nations

on a regular basis.

It's part of the great

commission that Jesus says,

"Go and

disciple the nations" so,

so that would be something

which we hold dearly.

The west has been in a decline.

But right now I think Africa is,

it's the fire pot

of spiritual renewal

and revival.

It's very exciting to me.


Who wants some?


You could taste it.

Let us pray, guys.

Father, we ask You to

bless this food for us,

With a smile for those without,

in Jesus' name we pray.


All right.

My kids don't know

anything on history

about Uganda.

It's a sad thing.

We try by all means to make

our home more African.

But the only country

they know is America.

This one.

This is yours.

We always think about the

possibility of going back there.

But I can't go back.

It's no longer safe for me.

So then we'll go over

the Uganda team's outreach,

can I see it real quick?

So your mission statement

is to serve local believers,

strengthen a culture of prayer,

and preach the gospel

to non-believers.

And so part of that is building

the community there,

but then how do you guys

see that happening?

What defines success for me,

specifically related to orphans

is walking away

and seeing the orphans

have a desire and a knowledge

of how to pray.

You know, the Lord says

"Tell the children

to come unto me"

and I wanna actually

point them to Jesus.


Lord help us with Uganda.


We come together to cry out

for the nation of Uganda

that we believe that the name

"the pearl of Africa"

is not just a name,

but it is a prophetic

declaration over that nation,

that it is a pearl in Your eyes
