Uganda

Uganda’s Steadfast Mother

After twelve years of suffering, one women's life was redeemed and renovated by God, and she became a community leader.

The Second Congo War was one of the deadliest conflicts worldwide since World War II, and its impact has rippled through Africa long after its official end in 2003.

Although the war was technically centered around the Democratic Republic of the Congo, many other east African countries felt the shock waves in the forms of desperate famine and economic depression, including Uganda.

Hope for Northern Uganda

A Bible school’s inspiration to bring relief to their community is bringing people to God.

Would you be surprised to learn that in 2017 Uganda hosted more refugees than any other country in Africa

1.3 million people fled their homes in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo into the fertile and relatively stable Uganda. While this solved the immediate danger to those refugees’ lives from militant groups and famine, it created a massive food shortage in Northern Uganda. 

To make matters worse, Uganda’s most prominent food crops, matoke and posho, are not very vitamin-rich. Malnutrition has begun spreading across the country. 

Ebola Crisis Strikes the D.R. Congo

The recent Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has taken over 60 lives. One of those lives was a congregant of our local church partner. We plan to aid in stopping this crisis by extending much-needed training and preventative measures to 60 local churches at the epicenter of the crisis. Part of those preventative measures is handwashing stations that will be placed outside the churches for attendees and community members to use freely. This will help stem the tide as the disease spreads through direct contact with the blood or body fluids of infected persons.

New Leaders in Uganda

God has opened the door for his Word to change the landscape of Uganda.

Three months ago marked Uganda’s 56th independence anniversary, but recently a retired diplomat told Uganda’s Daily Monitor that the country is as troubled as ever by government corruption, tribalism and poverty

While some are crying for new civil servants to improve Uganda’s conditions, others are taking action to spread God’s healing message and train up locals at a grassroots level. 

Incredible Growth

Churches in Uganda are being planted with amazing speed.
