Reaching those - who would be lost in His Name to be Priest of the Lord...Isaiah 6:16

Our main purpose is to Reconcile all people to knowledge of the gift of grace and power of God in todays world for their individual lives. We will have a discipleship teaching orientation for Pastors, leaders and believers of all ages with a special focus on areas that do not get many well-known speakers including widows and orphan. Today’s calling seems to be Africa, but the Lord recent spoke to our hearts to think bigger…His is a WORLD WIDE OPERATION- and He will not lose what He died for---His people- You

Katogwe Children's Crusade

The travel to Katogwe made for a very long day.  The distance isn’t really that far but the roads are rough and the traveling is slow.
Denver did an excellent job his first time driving here in Uganda but I could tell he was exhausted by the time we finally reached Pastor Valentine, Eunice, and the children that they care for.  As we approached their home (orphanage) the road and drive filled with children with shouts of cheer.  They had been anticipating our arrival all day and welcomed us with such love, that we all had renewed energy for the day and for the children’s crusade that would begin the next morning. We too shared in their joy of seeing each other again and seeing all that God had done for them in the time since we left them last February. 

We welcomed the newest member to the family, baby Denver.  What a smiley boy he is.  

We also got to see with our own eyes the miracle that God had done in little Tenders arm.  She is their youngest daughter who last year had fallen in a fire before we had arrived.  She was unable to even straighten her arm from the severity of the burn and the pigment was gone off most of it.  We had prayed for her while we were there and the very next day she was able to move it freely.  After leaving we heard the how God had completely healed her.  Glory to God!!!!!
The arm and face last year
Completely healed

Our Uganda team traveled with us, as well as three additional members 
that would be with us just during our time in Katogwe to help with the children’s crusade there. What an amazing team they are and we are so blessed to have them with us. 

We began the morning with worship and a message from Denver. Then we divided the children (about 250 in all) into four different groups based on their age and the team took them to the open field across the road and taught them bible verses, songs, dances, and skits.  

Each member of our team was responsible for determining what they would teach their age group.  After a couple hours we took a break for lunch and then in the evening when the sun was not as hot, we returned to the field for some games.  Although, during the break, the children continued to gather in the church and worshiped for about 3 hours until it was game times.

Our Uganda team brought so much joy to this little village in this three day crusade. We learned through Pastor Eunice that this was the first ever children’s crusade in their area. 

On the final day we had a special service to present to the parents what each of the children had learned.  The children were so proud of what they had learned and the parents had so much excitement as they listen to their children.  After the youngest group presented their verses and songs, on of the little boys asked “would you like to be saved”. 

Praise the Lord for the faith of a child!!!


Our days here in Uganda are often long and our words to express what the Lord is doing often fall short of the true experience for lack of time to write and words to express.  I wanted to be able to express just how blessed we were, the children where, and the pastor and his wife and the parents and this small village of Katogwe, but I find so much lacking in my expression of it to you.

Really what I can tell you is this: come and experience this for yourself.

Join us as we fellowship with the people here; dance with them, sing with them, laugh with them, and love with them.  Your life will never again be the same.
