Gregory and Joe Clarkson are our missionaries in Uganda. Their ministry is working with young people in a church, helping them grow as Christians and leading in worship. Jo recently had a baby delivered by cesarean and is slowly recovering. They found that in their church that dedicating their son Israel to the Lord is thought of as a family dedication. We agreed. As Christians the family needs to be lifted up to God to keep our responsibilities . Our contract taught us that dedication means being willing to submit Israel to the will of God. We realize the Lord gave us Israel and only He can take him away. So we have made a vow to raise Israel God’s way not our own. Pastor Doug asked the whole congregation to hold us accountable, be willing to help and they agreed. They want us to pray that the Lord will guide them in ministry now that they have little baby Israel. Also pray for healing as Jo recovers slowly from the cesarean delivery.
