Bread Stories from Kenya and Uganda

“When my husband Aaron was a fourth year medical student, we got to spend six weeks in a historic hospital called Kijabe. It is north of Nairobi and staying there was our first time in Africa, where we dreamed of living one day. Our son was eighteen months and as you can see, we were over the moon to be there…”

Visiting the Batwa Pygmies in Uganda

“Up, up, up we climbed along a dirt path that had been carved into the mountainside by bare, calloused feet that daily trod the red dust. The rolling green hills perched atop each other and reached magnificently toward heaven. Our guides, Batwa children who had run down the mountain to greet us, eagerly led the way to their small village on top of the highest hill…”

Orphaned Heart Ministry

“In 2007, I performed my musical testimony, “Lord Make Me the Person You Want Me to be” in Uganda. I was invited to do this in the town of Hoima for 1,500 residents and also at Uganda Christian University (UCU) for nearly 2,000 students. It amazed me how deeply it touched the souls of those in the audience. For some time, having worked with Dr. Sylvia Tamusuza, the founder of Love and Care Family, I found that few orphans talked about their lives…”

How Big is Your God, Really?

When J.B. Phillips wrote his book, Your God is too Small, the follow-up question was, "How big is your God?"  I am still asking that question in my own life.  In January, the former Archbishop and Primate of the Church of Uganda died and was celebrated.  His funeral was not only a national event, it was an international marker of the amazing changes in Africa, especially within the Anglican churches of Africa.  The Rev. Dr. David Goodhew has outlined some of the facts...

Healing and Restoration in Northern Uganda

In 2005, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) received a desperate request by a young Ugandan from the Acholi Tribe for help as his community had suffered frequent attacks by the Lord’s Resistant Army (LRA).  Northern Uganda suffered 20 years of terrorism and persecution from 1987 to mid-2008, in which countless civilians were massacred, 2 million people were displaced, homes were destroyed and at least 25,000 young people were abducted and...

Two Old Men

It was a blazing hot day, our second clinic day in the village of Ntooma.  The Gospel tent was buzzing with activity as our Ugandan evangelism and prayer teams were ministering to the clinic patients.  Dr. Chris Keenan, the team dentist, led a ninety-year-old man over to our area.  Chris explained that the man had a terminal tumor in his throat and that even back in the US there was nothing that could be done medically to save him...
