The Bible society of Uganda has launched the first ever translated Braille Luganda Bible for the blind with the major aim of bringing all the people close to God as they celebrate the 7th symposium of friends of the blind .

Peter Nyombi, a blind banker and a consultant from the DFCU bank  who officiated as the guest of honor at the symposium held at the Bible society Uganda in Kampala says that if someone is visionary impaired, people think that they can’t do anything.

“I have known God but I call him a stubborn God, he has always answered my questions and he is still answering more of them, I feel that there is no friend better than God, I can see, read and understand what even those with sight can’t see, I thank the Bible Society of Uganda for bringing us close to God,” Nyombi said.

The General Secretary of the Bible society of Uganda Simon Peter Mukhama says that the translation has cost them about five hundred million shillings.

Mukhama says that because of the challenges blind people face in some societies where they are not welcomed because they can’t read the Bible, they were forced to do the Braille Bible to show those with sight that even the blind can read the Bible.

He adds that they have started with Luganda but their target is to see that they translate the Bible for the blind into all the local languages. He urges parents to help their children love the word of God because given that the blind can now read the Bible .

According to the Uganda Bureau of Statistics figures, 2.6 million people are visually impaired.

Published

Musician turned man of God Pastor Wilson Bugembe of the worship house in Nansana has warned a group of Ugandan youths who have launched a campaign on social media bashing him, to stop attacking the church.
Speaking in a press conference held at Mestil hotel in Kampala yesterday, where he unveiled the coming of international gospel artiste Don Moen, who is set to perform at the first ever Kampala Praise Fest to be held at Kololo independence grounds, the youthful pastor told journalists that no one can attack the church and be successful. He advised those attacking the church to instead target the individuals who are in the wrong.
“Young man ,you can attack me left ,right and any other way but leave the church. Never tell any pastor or any man of God to close the churches because they don’t own them ,you may think that you are attacking Bugembe but in actual sense you are attacking a number of people because today Bugembe is here tomorrow he won’t be around but the church will always be here. No man in history has attacked the church and won,” Bugembe told one of the journalist.
Concerning his involvement in ‘Tuliyambale engule’ song, Bugembe said that he never regrets being part of the song. He added that he took part in the song as a mediator in the current political situation in the country and being that Bobi wine is his good friend, there was no reason why he could miss out in the video.
Bugembe appealed to all Ugandans who misunderstood him to know that he is not against the government because the NRM government has done many good things for the born-again faith in the country.

Richest Man In Singapore Reveals His Secret To The Younger Generation—Jesus

Singapore richest man Phillip Ng

“There is more to life than wealth,” the richest man in Singapore Philip Ng has revealed

The Grapevine has learnt that Philip Ng is considered to be Singapore’s richest man. He has a net worth of  $11.9 Billion and he is not only financially rich but also a certified follower of Jesus. Ng revealed that what made him truly wealthy was not his large amount of money, but his relationship with Jesus Christ.

One of Philip Ng’s mentees Matthew Yao, asked what advice he would give to the younger generation. “Your heart will melt the moment you hear his wonderful answer,” he stated. According to Mr. Ng, he discovered that we are all broken and the only one that can fill the missing piece in our hearts is God – through His son Jesus Christ.

“People try to find that missing piece through the pursuit of money, popularity, alcohol, drugs, sex, achievements, and even in romantic relationships.  However, there is more to this life.  People are searching for better lives and better things, but life will never be better without Jesus.  For He is the only one that can satisfy us.  Real wealth is only found in Jesus,” Mr. Ng said

Mr. Ng chose to share Jesus with the young people instead of sharing about success and business matters.  We have to look deeper inside our hearts. God’s love is more valuable than any riches in this world.  Choose Him and you will discover real wealth just like that which Mr Philip Ng experienced.
