“And I sought for a man among them that should make up
the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land,
that I should not destroy it but I found none”. (Ezek 22:30)

There was so much evil in the days of Ezekiel that God started looking for men or women to stand in the gap to warn his people of the impending doom, but He found none.
We are living in similar times and God is looking all around us to find a woman or a man who can go before him and warn the people about the Second Coming of our Lord and to warn people to repent. This is the challenge before us. God is still looking and searching for men and women to stand in the gap and be able to preach the Gospel. He will not use angels to do this. He wants to use you and I.
The greatest command ever given was indeed from our Lord Jesus. He said in Mathew 28:18-20

“all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things—— even unto the end of the world.”

The Lord has given this command to every believing born again Christian. This is our call to preach the gospel to all who have not heard it. There is no other gospel that we are waiting for to save the world, except the gospel of our Lord that he preached and still is preaching now more than 2000 years later. This is our challenge today.
Jesus himself became man and he stood in the gap between man and His Father. He has redeemed us from sin. The writer of the book of Hebrews says in Hebrews 1:1-2:

“God who at sundry times and in diverse manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed
heir of all things by whom he made the worlds”. Jesus is now speaking to the entire world through the Gospel, which all true believers need to embrace and pass it forward on a daily basis. As GOOD News publication is unveiled, it is our prayer, that the Gospel, the only good news to mankind, will shed eternal light in the hearts of men, women and
children of our generation so that Jesus may be glorified in their lives by accepting him as Lord and savior. This paper is Christian based for the bridging the gap, so that our children, and grandchildren throughout our beloved country Uganda and beyond will know that

“God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

May the Lord bless you and your families as you read the GOODNews and may you continually pray for this ministry that God will enrich men and women’s hearts with his goodness and the salvation he gives through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Wishing you a blessed and prosperous New Year 2017 .
