Recent Ministry

God is working in the life of Vastina and Fred. They have one son called Arnold, who is three years old. Vastina brought her son to the church as he could not walk. He was always lying down, which was concerning since he was already three. We started to pray with her for her son. After four weeks, Vastina came to church, proclaiming that her son can now support himself to stand up and can take three steps. We give God the glory!

The adult members of the church are combining their money to buy goats for each other as part of the poverty solutions activity. This month they purchased a goat for Evelyn. This program has increased animal husbandry and farming in our homes, which we expect to have a positive impact on the families’ incomes.

We are training our church members through the foundation classes. We teach the leaders the scriptures and give them opportunities to practice their preaching in the fellowships. We reach the community through home visits, crusades, and overnight events. This month we visited thirty homes
and spoke with two-hundred and forty people.

  • Pray for the members of the church to grow in their faith and understanding of God’s Word.

Praise God that the adults are working together to improve their ability to care for their families. Abia is thirty-five and Abia’s husband abandoned her to care for their five children without any help or support. Abia was only able to work a day at a time to purchase food for her family and had no ability or hope to save anything for the future. She was desperate and came to the church, where she surrendered her life to God. She committed to learning the Word of God and started to realize that God can bless her through her hard work. Abia was hired to cultivate the land in a garden and now she has enough food for her children and some income to support their needs.

Evelyn is twenty-six, and we believe God is drawing her to faith in Him. We first met her soon after she had given birth to her child, and she was so happy that people had come to visit her. We shared the Word of God and prayed with Evelyn; this experience made her interested in seeing the church. She started fellowshipping with us in Omukobusingye cell and wants to learn more from the Bible. She says she will continue to come to church. We pray that one day she will give her life to Jesus Christ.

  • Pray for God to bless Abia’s hard work in her garden so that she can care for her family.
  • Pray for Evelyn to come to understand her need for a Savior and to surrender her life to the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Pray that we can install the walls of our church structure. The roof keeps off most of the rain, but we still have issues from the wind blowing rain in the sides. Also, whenever a car drives past, the service is disrupted as people get distracted.

Praise God for White Fields’ support in helping us do the work of the ministry. We praise God that people are coming to faith in God.

We desire to expand our church land and pray for the Lord to help us with this project.

  • Pray that our youth will find jobs in the areas, so they do not have to move far away to Kampala for work, and so they can help here in the ministry.

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 discipled 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.
