The Rev. Canon Hannock Ngoma gives his testimony on the effects of the 2012 SOMA trip to Malawi and on the difference in the clergy going into the 2013 SOMA mission trip.
The retiring Archbishop of Uganda and Bishop of Kampala, the Most Reverend Henry Luke Orombi, speaks about the benefits of the ministry SOMA provides.
Mombasa, 2011 (all quotes from clergy unless otherwise noted):
“When I came, my heart was very low – right now I am feeling a lot of peace in my heart.”
“I had something in my heart that needed to be released and when you prayed, not knowing what it was, it was released. I know I am free. God brought you here just to pray with me so I could be free. I am so happy.”
“I cannot express what I feel – they have ministered to us to build us up and they have given all of themselves.”
“Thank you for reminding me God loves me!”
“I especially appreciated to talk on men and the spiritual life of a man. After I was saved, I wanted to go to heaven, but now I realize I need to preach the full Gospel in my life and work, and in prayer until the end times – I have a lot of work to do and I feel renewed to do the work.”
“The conference was like no other; the team would withdraw at breaks and seek what the Holy Spirit wanted, not what they had prepared so we knew we were receiving what the Holy Spirit wanted to teach us.”
New Zealand, 2011:
“The team prayed for me. I feel so alive now. The prayer was precise and specific, though you didn’t know my situation.”
“The SOMA team reminds us that God answers prayers and that we need one another.”
