American Televangelist Andrew Wommack is in Uganda and tonight Friday 2nd June 2017 from 6:00pm and tomorrow Saturday will be speaking to thousands of Ugandans in Victoria Hotel, Kampala Serena Hotel. The preacher of charismatic word of faith, teacher, healer and founder of Andrew Wommack Ministries in 1978 and Charis Bible College (originally Colorado Bible College) in 1994 has heavily invested in Uganda with Humanitarian Projects in Karamoja bordering South Sudan and Northern Kenya.
Who is Andrew Wommack?
Wommack has been preaching since 1969. He married his wife Jamie in 1972. Over the next six years, they led three small churches and completed their family with two sons, Joshua and Jonathan Peter. In 1976, Andrew broadcast his first Gospel Truth radio program on a little country-and-western station in Childress, Texas.The Wommacks founded Andrew Wommack Ministries, Inc. in 1978 and moved their ministry to Colorado Springs in 1980. With the exception of a few months, Wommack has been broadcasting the program ever since. Then in January 2000, he broadcast the first Gospel Truth television program on INSP Network. Response to the message was tremendous, and since then, DayStar Network and The Church Channel in the U.S., GOD TV in Europe and around the world, and several individual television stations have been added. Wommack joined Trinity Broadcasting Network’s lineup with his own daily radio and television show Gospel Truth with Andrew Wommack.
“God called us to teach the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ with special emphasis on God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith.”
Raising the dead
Wommack teaches that Born Again Christians, by the authority of Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, can miraculously heal and raise people from the dead; and he states on his website and in his books that his younger son, Peter, was raised from the dead by the power of God on March 4, 2001. “My own son was raised up after being dead for five hours,” Wommack said. He has also said, “I’ve personally seen three people raised from the dead, including my own son. He’d been dead for almost five hours, and had already turned black. His toe was tagged and he was lying on a slab in the hospital morgue.”
Miracles and healing
Wommack states he has witnessed uncountable miracles and healings:
“Although many people would like to see blind eyes and deaf ears opened, terminal diseases healed, the dead raised, and financial blessings manifest the way I have (by God’s grace), they’re not willing to spend the time yielding to and fellowshipping with the Lord in His Word, prayer, and obedience.”
“I don’t claim to have ‘arrived’ concerning prayer, but I’ve definitely left! I regularly see miracles of every kind happen in my life and ministry. My own son was raised up after being dead for five hours. I’ve seen many blind eyes and deaf ears opened, not to mention all of the cancers healed, people coming out of wheelchairs, and demons cast out.”
Charis Bible College
Charis Bible College (CBC) (originally Colorado Bible College) is an unaccredited Bible college that opened in 1994, graduating its first class of 33 in 1996. It focuses on spiritual and faith development and has over 850 students attending its Woodland Park, Colorado Campus and nearly 5000+ more attending via Online and Correspondence classes. In 1997 Charis Bible College-U.K. was founded in South Chard, England, and is presently located in Walsall. Since then schools have been started in Russia, Northern Ireland, Belize, India, The Netherlands, S. Africa and Uganda. The first U.S. extension school opened in Chicago, IL, in 2003 and its success spurred the establishment of schools in Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX; Jacksonville, FL; Gardner & Plymouth, MA; Dyer, IN; and Kansas City, MO.
Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill
Evangelical organisation Andrew Wommack Ministries issued this statement regarding the Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill
“I knew this information was wrong and the punishments were vastly exaggerated as is so often the case. I met with the Member of Parliament responsible for this bill and he gave me his reasoning for introducing this legislation. Uganda had just had the United Nations try to pressure them into passing pro-homosexual legislation in order to obtain a large sum of money offered to them (a bribe). They responded with this legislation in order to stop the strong arm tactics of the pro-homosexual western influence. Would to God American leaders had enough integrity to not be bribed or badgered into compliance. Although I knew the situation was being misrepresented, I didn’t feel qualified to deal with this personally. But Leland Shores who runs our office in Kampala, Uganda is well aware of the details and has written a response worthy of everyone who has an interest in this reading. He has included a letter from over 200 Ugandan Christian leaders explaining the situation.”
The Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Bill is a legislative proposal that would broaden the criminalisation of same-sex relations in Uganda domestically, and further includes provisions for Ugandans who engage in same-sex relations outside of Uganda, asserting that they may be extradited for punishment back to Uganda, and includes penalties for individuals, companies, media organisations, or non-governmental organisations that know of gay people or support LGBT rights.
Renown Journalist Andrew and local Politician Fox Odoi went to court and challenged the bill which had turned into law after being signed by Uganda President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni amidst international pressure yet much support from his citizens who latter organized a thanks giving at Kololo Airstrip to thank him. The court canceled the law on the technical part following a low turn up of the needed legislators/ quorum to pass it and many questions are raised as to why government has not acted again.
Entrance for Andrew Wommack two days event is for free.
