December 2019
We pray that each of you are well and are closing off this year with Praise and Thanksgiving to our Father in Heaven! We have been thinking about this year and have seen His Faithfulness! As we think ahead to 2020, we look forward to what God has for us! We believe God for a time of connection with family and friends, as we will be on furlough next year and look forward with great expectation for our future as we follow our Savior!
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are in awe of what He has already done for us and what He continues to do! In 2019, we praise Him for everything: “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given.” Isaiah 9:6
1)     For what He has done and the free gift of Salvation and eternal life that we have in Him alone
2)     For our family and friends – Sarah’s adoption – huge for this year!!!
3)     For the privilege to serve here in Uganda since 2012
4)     For prayer and financial partners who allow us to be here
5)     For our Missionary Board in the USA and Holland who encourage and pray for us, and provide spiritual and financial support
6)     For health and strength
7)     So thankful to be a part of the Island ministry and the Bible Training School on Lingeria and Namiti Islands
8)     For the 3 village Bible Training Institutes with students who are hungry for God’s Word
9)     For a car to reach these villages every week
10)  For the Saturday morning missionary women’s Bible study
11)  For continued homeschooling of the kids/weekly homeschool group
This is only the beginning! But for THIS we say, THANK YOU FATHER IN HEAVEN!
Finally, a few testimonies to close off the year!
“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12
The students on the islands had a session on Biblical Integrity and these were the testimonies the month after the class:
1)     I was mixing the milk I sell with ½ water. I stopped and now sell milk only and I now have more customers. The people say I have the best milk around.
2)     In the culture here, it is common for a husband and wife to keep everything concerning finances separate. One student returned and said that he and his wife now share their finances and they have more trust in their relationship.
3)     I was cheating my customers with the weighing scales that I was using. I stopped and now I am getting more business.
We praise Him for His Word changes hearts and brings forth truth.
For His Glory,
Gertjan, Stephanie, Nathaniah, Josiah & Sarah Vroege

Making CHRIST Known in Uganda

Hello Family and Friends!

Our future…With prayer and support we will return again on September 15, 2015 to serve the people of Uganda. We are excited to return and do the work that God has called us to do. Our focus will be to work on the Islands of Uganda. There are about 52 Islands along the Buvuma Island chain of Lake Victoria. Many of the islands are underserved and unreached and many lack basic water and sanitation, have limited or no medical access and most have not been evangelized and/or had true Biblical teaching and discipleship.

Therefore Our focus  in Uganda and on the islands will be…..

Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded  you.

And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.

Discipleship/Bible study- Gert jan will focus on Bible study/teaching and true Biblical discipleship

Medical- Stephanie is a Nurse Practitioner by trade and will serve where there is limited medical access on the islands and help in educating at the government children’s hospital and through these avenues to share the Gospel. And her first ministry- to her husband, boys, and homeschooling.

Evangelism as a family- the boys are also in ministry with us and we will continue as a family to evangelize and share the love of Christ as we live life in Uganda and especially at  an orphan baby home that we have served as a family together for the past 2 years.

For Now…Please pray for us as we are here in the USA on home leave.

  • That God would prepare our hearts for the ministry that he has for us in Uganda and that we would rest in Him during our time in the USA
  • That we would glorify God in all that we do as a family and that we keep Him first in all that we do
  • That we would have the right partners in ministry-prayer warriors and financial partners
  • For God to be with Nathaniah and Josiah as they are here in the USA and transition back to Uganda

How you can support us…..

As we go forward in missions we need your prayers! We cannot do what we do without a Body of Believers standing behind us in prayer. As the Lord leads we also need financial support to do what God has called us to do in Uganda.

We ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us ministry on a monthly, quarterly, yearly, or one time. You can do this by either option below:
