My name is Jackson Evangelist Counsel, 22 years old, I am from the eastern part of Africa in the country called Uganda. We were born seven but one died because of heart disease and the other one she is staying with her friends so right now am living with my four little siblings. Our daddy left us in the house due to the death of my little sister in 2017 and we don't know where he is right now. In that day and year, we were staying with our mummy. But also due to some starving situations, she left us in the house and went to the village, and left us alone. I cancelled my studies to help my little siblings to study. I am a cleaner but most of days I wash toilets so I can earn money (120,000 Ugandan shillings = £25.50) with which I pay rent, food, school fees and other stuff. It's so little money to me and my siblings because the needs are many. Sometimes I had to sell our television or mattresses in the house to get food to eat and to pay rent, school fees and other bills. In 2018, I decided to follow JESUS CHRIST truly. In the book of Ephesians chapter 4:11 says “So Christ himself gave them to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and the teachers.” I asked GOD for the gift to be an evangelist. I decided to serve the Lord with my little siblings. My four siblings are my choir and I am the preacher if we get any person asks me to preach. We where staying in an abandon house. But God was doing His thing.
After Life to Last adopted us, we have seen the Hands of GOD upon us. God has helped us to move and we are in a better house now where rain can't reach to us. We have not seen the challenge of food in this pandemic season and I have hope, faith and believe that Life to Last will support me. Meanwhile, I am committed to seeking GOD, calling GOD to be with us, in my street gospel ministry. I have gone into the hospital praying for sick people, I have walked from village to village where people haven't heard the word of GOD. People have been giving their lives to CHRIST. People call us to preach in their houses, so I walk with my siblings as the choir in the home fellowships. In the street gospel ministry I was been given a loudspeaker. But in my most troubled and tough missions , I find a challenge of witch doctors, " I preached him the gospel because in Mark 16:15-18 where demons would be driven out. And they were!
The hand of God was there. You can't agree with the satan in any form, like people building houses; they sacrificed in their houses or gave sacrifices to their houses; goats, hens and other animal’s blood. In Matthew 12:26-28 says, “it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” The spirit of GOD was there, the guy accepted JESUS. I tasted GOD because in Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the LORD is good..” Please pray for me; for my dreams and my vision because I can't pray it alone. Psalm 67:7 says “May GOD bless us still so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.”

During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. ACTS 16
