Massive crowds flocked Makerere Sports ground on Friday for The Worship Night organised by Light the Word Church Pastor, Wilson Bugembe.
The event was free to attend and open to persons of all denominations. Gates were open as early as 4 pm, with heavy security deployment at all points, especially the East and West gates of Makerere University that were the authorized avenues of entry.
Many things have changed in Uganda since Bugembe’s last Worship Night. In 2016, countless responded to Christ while others testified to miraculous healing. However, that same hunger for the Gospel doesn’t seem to be fading among Christians in Uganda.
Presiding apostle of the Born Again Faith Federation, Dr Joseph Serwadda in his speech commended Bugembe for organizing such an event at a time like this in Uganda.
Dr Serwadda said knowing how crucial the event is, offered Pr Bugembe free airtime to intensively advertise Worship Night across all media platforms he is CEO.
“I have done my Job, I have obeyed God. Wilson also obeyed God – the blessing is coming to you tonight,” he told congregants.
Dr Serwadda prayed for freedom among Christians in Uganda and else where.
“You spoke that you will do a new thing and all eyes will behold you. I stand here as a witness to the new thing you are doing in this nation. You are making Uganda a worshiping nation. Thank you for raising a group of people that know that the power to release the knowledge and wisdom of God is on worship,” he prayed.
Also present was gospel musician and Buikwe Woman Member of Parliament, Judith Babirye who used the occasion to testify about joining Uganda’s Parliament despite a tough childhood.
“Children of God, never limit yourself. As far as you can see, as far as your eyes can stretch, I challenge you – dare to dream. We serve a God of no limitation, unlimited potential and abilities,” she said.
“Somebody told me when I was running for Parliament that it is impossible to win the campaigns without engaging witchcraft. I told her; Try me. God has called you for greatness. Whatsoever lies ahead, is in the hands of the Lord,” she added.
It is here that Judith went public about her recent surgery abroad, however spoke reservedly about the details.
She spoke of being sedated when in theater and the fear that gripped her. Judith Babrye later sung a song this experience triggered in her life. “What I can not control, I can only surrender in the hands of God,” she said.
