Recent Ministry

God is at work in the community of Kigaaga. Jane is twenty-seven and has three children.  Her father died, and she is living with her mother, Deudanta.  Jane divorced her husband over domestic violence and is raising her children with her mother’s assistance. The older two children are currently in school. When we visited Jane in September of last year, we found her husband had beaten her and damaged her face. We encouraged her that God still cared about her and we used scriptures from the Bible. We prayed with her and encouraged her to seek medical care and legal assistance to gain custody of her children especially since they are still young, and her husband had taken up with another woman. God healed Jane and touched her husband’s heart, he released the children to her. Jane attends the church and is so thankful to God. She is not bitter towards her husband and has forgiven him, saying this is all possible because the church came and visited her, giving her the hope that is in the Word of God. She is serving in the church choir and drama group.

  • Pray for Jane and her children to grow in the knowledge of God and for each child to come to know the Lord as their personal Savior.

Natukunda is in her forties, a resident of Byaatta cell, and attends the Kigaaga fellowship that meets in the home of Faith. She is a widow with four children and lives in a house with three rooms built with mud and sticks.  Natukunda is a farmer who rents land for gardening to earn food for her family and is a day-laborer. Three months ago, she got the stomach sickness and took medicine to see if it would help her feel better. The illness continued so she sought medical care from Nyakibale, after a scan and x-ray, they discovered a tumor in her stomach. The doctor gave her medication to ease the pain and to get her ready for operation. When she came home, we kept visiting her and praying with her. When the time for the surgery arrived, she went back to the hospital. The doctor did a scan and x-ray first in preparation and was shocked to find that the tumor had disappeared. Natukunda was discharged and is now fine. She is happy and thankful to God for healing her from the pain and costs of the operation. She is grateful for a caring church in her community that visits people, gives them the Word of God, and prays with them.

  • Pray for Natukunda to have no medical repercussions from her stomach illness.
  • Pray for her to be able to get land for agriculture and to provide school fees so her children can get an education.

We have multiple ministries taking place. The adult started an association to buy plates. So far, we have blessed three people, Margate, Karebeka Evelyn, and Birungi Victoria. This association is to help members acquire household utensils which they would otherwise find difficult to afford. They meet every Sunday after service. The youth started a drama group led by Kanyarutokye Leo.

  • Pray for the ministries to be blessed with participants.

Give thanks that the collective group can purchase household utensils from the local businesses.

Mr. Minim is married to Annah. They have five children, three girls, and two boys. Minim had not gone to the Catholic Church for seventeen years because he is a witch-doctor. We visited him in his home, shared the Word of God, and prayed with him. He promised to come and visit us at the church. He has been attending the fellowship that meets in Faith’s home. He is showing interest by asking questions about the Bible and sometimes comes to church with his family.

  • Pray that the Lord will convict his heart and give him boldness to confess Christ as his Savior and Lord.
  • Pray for his family to also come to an understanding of salvation.

The church visited thirty-eight homes and shared the gospel with one-hundred and eighty-seven people. I am training others in the ministry through church programs and reading from Bible groups.  Victoria has been training in praise and worship, and she is now able to lead comfortably. Praise the Lord.

  • Pray for the leaders God is raising in the church to be firm in their faith.
  • Pray for the funds required to make bricks from cement.

Pastor John Bosco’s Ministry

My name is John Bosco, and I am a Pastor in the Kigaaga area of Rukungiri, Uganda. Our church is one of several strategically networked churches seeking to bring the good news of the Gospel to the poor and hopeless in our community. I became a believer in Jesus after my brother attempted to have me murdered several years ago. You can read my testimony here. I have a beautiful wife named Scovia who works alongside me in ministry in addition to my two sons and one daughter. We served for several years in our church and were disciplined and trained for positions of leadership. In 2017 with the help of White Fields we were sent out to plant a new church in Kigaaga.

Kigaaga is an agricultural trading center where most of the people farm or raise cattle, pigs, and chickens. Witchcraft and demonic activity are prevalent here. The Catholic and Anglican churches teach that it is okay for their members to get assistance from demonic forces and explain that their church can only do so much. We stand as a beacon of hope teaching the freedom that Christ gives us from the wrath of sin. Numerous people have been freed from demonic oppression after running to our church for help. You can read these stories in previous updates on our archive page. In 2017 we purchased land and began constructing a permanent church building as a symbol of our long-term commitment to this community.
