The recent annual parent meeting for the students at God Cares High School took an unusual turn when Worship Dongo Byakika, the CEO of Buyamba in Uganda, asked for questions or comments at the end of the meeting. One mother stood up, wearing the traditional Muslim attire, and started thanking the administration at GCS for all they had done for her son. Apparently, she had seen a dramatic difference in her once disobedient son this past year, who told his mom that he had accepted Jesus into his heart as his Savior. She was so taken with his transformation and a new love for the family that she asked how she might also be saved.
Pastor Florence Dongo leads GCHS Mothers in a prayer for salvation
Immediately, another mother of Muslim descent stood up, testifying to the dramatic change for the better in her daughter. She also asked how she might also know Jesus as Savior.
It didn’t stop there, for three other moms stood up asking the same question. The meeting took a turn, and all were excited and amazed at what was happening.
Pastor Florence immediately stood up and took the lead to lead these five women in a prayer of salvation. There was so much joy that night among the parents who rejoiced over these women and the ongoing discipleship of the children at God Cares School that impacted their families.

A Buyamba friend in Florida shares his cry for prayer ...
"I have been actively praying AGAINST this storm from hitting land anywhere, that is to turn out to sea, since it first formed last week. Forecasters indicated, from the start, that the location and track of the storm could create a large dangerous hurricane. Yes, they were right.
I am asking, in prayer, that God be glorified in this potential disaster to Florida. If you remember Katrina was a CAT 5 at 150MPH winds. One way for God to be glorified is that He gets His people to pray in unison.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. - 2 Chron 7:14
If you have not prayed, God is Glorified in His miracles (John 15:8). We are looking for a miracle. Please come along side us, in unity, praying and asking that the Lord be merciful to Florida."
We will be keeping a prayer list specific to the needs of those affected by the storm. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 805-558-0089 and let us know how we can pray for you.
May God watch over you and your families.
