Light for Uganda

The task seems huge, but God is bigger.  Where there is a vision, there is a provision. That provision comes in many different forms and about in many different ways from the hands of God. One way God works to accomplish His purpose is to touch the hearts of people to participate in the vision. It’s been an amazing faith journey and we want to invite you onboard.

We have seen those who have helped with their resources experience the wonderful blessing of practicing generosity.  It is a practice of reciprocity.  We don’t give to receive, but we have watched God take care of the Ugandan people’s needs through donors, and  then, watched the blessings boomerang back to meet the needs of those cheerful givers.

You can’t outgive God!  Malachi 3:10

We pray and hope you will be a part of this Kingdom work as we, together, touch lives and make a difference to “that one”.*

Give Towards a Special Project

  • Boys Dorm–Currently, the boys are being housed in a rented building which is in bad repair.  There are holes in the floor and a leaky roof.  They need a warm, dry place to live which will nurture them and give a good quality of life to these boys.
  • Science Lab–Needed is more science lab equipment and better classroom.
  • Salaries–Due to Covid in 2020 and rising inflation, there has been a shortage to pay the salaries for the staff which includes teachers, guards, a nurse, cooks, and dorm parents.  Any donation toward salaries cuts down the overall budget and helps ensure that the students will continue to have a quality education as well as good staff to take care of them.

Your willingness to give, even, every now and then is a huge blessing.

    • Ministers Fund – In serving the Lord in Kingdom work, many of the ministers struggle to make a living, largely due to the composition of the church congregation.  Most of the church congregations, in this part of Uganda, are made up of people who have very little and, even though, they give out of their little, much of the time, it is not enough to supply the ministers.  You can make a difference in the ministers’ lives by giving to help with their living needs.

* Story of the Starfish

(adapted from The Star Thrower, by Loren Eiseley (1907 – 1977)

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions. 

Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching.  As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.  The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning!  May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.” The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”

What if I cannot afford to give, but want to help?

  • Inform others in your circle of influence— family, friends, church, school and work associates which can be done through everyday conversation or by passing out or mailing Light for Uganda cards.
  • Have a lemonade, bake, garage, or craft sale. Ask friends to do the same.
  • Sell a few items on Next Door or Facebook Marketplace- a wonderful way to get your children involved
  • Host a fundraiser—Walks or Runs, Bunco night, Sports Tournament
  • Host a party or dinner for orphans—we can help with the planning.

We covet your prayers lifting up to the Father these father-less kids, and asking for provision to come from our God “who owns the cattle on a thousand hills”.  Psalm 50:10
