Need and Work emerges with various groups within their local community in and on the outskirts of Kampala, sharing the gospel in practical ways! Here are some of the projects we are engaged in:
Kabira Community Outreach
Seventy miles out of Kampala city is a village community called Kabira (forest) which is home to several disadvantaged children. With the help of well-wishers and friends, we have managed to come to their aid with a wide spectrum of essentials such as food, clothes, medication and treatment, and scholastic materials.
Olive Branch Ministries
Rhona has an administrive role with Olive Branch Ministries, overseeing over 30 disadvantaged children, she will go to different school destinations where she goes to offer counsel and make sure all is well with them.
Grateful to be part of this ministry that was started by one of the lads met in a juvenile remand home as we did youth work in 2002. Sam Seki a former street kid rises above the odds to help his fellow street children to live a worthwhile life. He has made this his life mission. Besides him, we walk, offering counsel and direction, praying together and seeing God do amazing things in the lives of these children.
We live on the outskirts of the capital city Kampala, in a small semi-rural village called Sumbwe-Bira from which the name Sumbira is derived. Rhona and I have been moved by the need in our neighborhood where several girl children are sidelined in educational opportunities. They will not go to school for lack of school tuition fees, school requirements like paper and books and more! Out of the little we are blessed with, we give back to this social responsibility. Currently two young ladies are in their final class of senior high and we are glad to be part of their education journey!
Pastoral duties at st. Kakumba Chapel have never ceased to be. I am still very actively involved in the programs and activities to minister to the congregation and the student community. These include:
Young Marrieds Fellowship – Couples that have only recently been married in holy matrimony join this ministry for counsel direction, fellowship and accountability. Rhona and I are part of the leadership in this ministry.
Young Mens Fellowship – Challenges come our way especially to the young men. Sharing with them my experiences and walk through life is a very rewarding experience as we see many of them overcome their challenges.
