When we got to Intibuka, we headed out to the Villages where the Lenka live. The picture at left is the 1st village we visited. The couple was smiling and joyful. They are a part of the new church that was just planted here in the last two years.
The video below is from the 2nd village we visited. It was also a new church, planted in the last couple of years. What's amazing is that the pastor here told us with joy that only 5 men committed suicide this year in the village... Five suicides! That sounds awful! But the prior year, there were a couple dozen men who did this. In the middle of the beautiful landscape, with crops growing all around, the hopelessness of life without hope and purpose, brought men to get drunk and then guzzle some ween killer, and end their lives. But the Gospel of Jesus is bearing fruit and growing, and this Village is Different! The adults were talking, and a group of children gathered around. I started playing with the kids in this video...

This village is now encountering the Gospel
thanks to the new church plant there.
