Time for Prayer

Posted by kingdom on July 22, 2012

Talk of Entebbe is coming to you a little later than usual this time -- it's 9:15 p.m. here  Sunday night, 7:15 a.m. Monday, July 23rd in Uganda --, but you will understand why. It has been such a crazy week.

Greetings, how are you?

Things haven't been that great this past week here, with...

Lack of Rain Threatening Food

Several states are under drought, with Texas and North Dakota hardest hit with most severe dry weather in 18 years. Weather experts report that the lack of adequate rainfall is the worst in in America in 50 years. Public has been alerted to potential shortages of corn and soybeans which, if it happens, would drive prices of many foodstuffs not only in the U.S. but all over the world. Preachers have asked for prayer for rain.

Twelve People Massacred

Twelve people in a small town of Aurora, state of Colorado, were gunned down and 58 injured Saturday morning while watching  a freshly-released film in "kibanda".  Many were young, most probably on vac, but the dead also include two members of the armed forces.  One gunman is suspected. He walked into the movie theatre around midnight, tossed teargas, opened fire; then surrrendered to police outside. He then told police that his flat was surrounded with explosives. In a a coincidence of sorts, the 24-year-old suspect went to school right here in San Diego County, about 10 miles from downtown San Diego. He was one of only six students in the whole country selected for neurosurgeon studies at the University of Colorado.

AIDS still an epidemic

U.S. health experts have announced a vaccine for HIV-AIDS. However, Pruvada is still in trial stages since it has not been widely used. This vaccine could prevent catching AIDS 90 out of 100 times if  person who was HIV-free was vaccinated before having  sex with an infected person. However, it has been noted that for the already-infected, using Pruvada could make the disease worse by making ineffective other medication.

The U.S. is reported to have 1.2 million people with HIV-AIDS.

I wish I could end on a good note...Let's pray for better things this week. Take care always.

Sincerely and with best wishes for Uganda and The United States, K. Lwanga, Principal & Writer
