Sermon - John Dotson
When God is the Reason for a Heavy Heart
Word From the Pastor
Where is God today as we go through a pandemic, as we face civil unrest? Has He gone silent? Have these times taken Him by surprise and He has no answer? Or could it be that this is fulfilling God’s purpose for the church? Could God be using this to purify the church and draw His children back to Him? Are we a faithful people or have we given our hearts to lovers other than the Lord, our creator and savior? Today’s message calls us to look inside and see if there is only one God in our lives and what does a heart committed to Him really looks like.

The Continuing Impact of the Coronavirus on Uganda!
As of June 28, Uganda had registered 870 cases of COVID-19 with no fatalities. Containment measures such as restrictions on travel, public gatherings, closure of businesses and schools has had severe impact on the economy and people’s livelihoods. An estimated 3.15 million could fall deeper into poverty, adding to the 8.7 million Ugandans currently living below the poverty line. This has been worsened by the onset of heavy rains and flooding, and a locust invasion whose impact was expected during April-June of 2020. Overall economic growth is projected at 3 to 4 percent in the current fiscal year, lower than the 6.3 percent that had been anticipated for the year.
The closure of Uganda prohibited our 2020 team from carrying out its mission to Uganda! “Sam’s Attic” which, like Lake Bible Church, helps bring supporting funds to the teachers and the schools it supports, is, of course, greatly hampered by our own Corona Virus situation.
Let us not forget our brothers and sisters in Uganda we have long reached out to with our gifts and mission outreaches.
Please pray and pray and pray for the people of Uganda!
