Pastor Kwesiga Robinson

Recent Ministry

James is a member of the Rwamatele fellowship; Beatrice, our church member, leads this group. I have seen God at work in the life of this old man who is in his late eighties. He developed kidney failure, hypertension, and diabetes. Two weeks ago, he was taken to multiple hospitals and clinics, but all in vain, he ended up being semi-conscience and was on oxygen therapy for two days.  He was sent home in critical condition, and we were called to pray for him at his house. He gained consciousness. Those in his family that had expected his death are now glorifying God for his recovery. Everybody who visited him in the hospital is also praising the Lord Jesus for Jackson’ life, and the love, care, and support we gave him in these trying times. James is receiving treatment for high blood pressure and diabetes; we thank God that he is responding well to the treatments. He promises us that when he has regained enough strength, he will mobilize his friends to come and give thanks to God at the church.

  • Pray for James to regain his strength and celebrate the incredible witness of God’s grace and power to the community.

The women’s group changed their meeting time from every Thursday to just the last Thursday of the month as it was challenging for them to take time away from their gardens every week. The majority of the group comes from crop farming communities.

We thank God for the baptism of three people who gave their lives to Christ during the home fellowships. Aidah is thirty-six. Jenifer is thirty, and Sharon is forty-two. They all attend fellowships in different communities.

  • Pray for these women to continue to hunger for the Word of God and to serve Him.

  • Pray for Aidah, Jenifer, and Sharon to grow in their faith.
  • Pray for their witness to their community.

Praise God for their public declaration of faith through baptism.

  • Pray for the women’s group to be able to connect each month to support and strength each other’s faith.
  • Pray for friendships to develop that are pleasing to God.

John is seventy and married to Violet, who is sixty. They live in Katoonya cell. They have five grown children, three girls, and two boys, who are all married. This couple lives in a temporary four-room house and survives through subsistence farming. They no longer have the energy to sell their labor to earn an income. Violet is an intercessor in the church.

  • Pray for doors to open so they may get enough money to keep food on the table; especially as they are getting older.
  • Pray for the daily needs of John and Violet to be met.

The foundation class is where we train the believers to participate in ministry, in the fellowships, church services, and in home-visit sharing.

Alex Sharing During the Foundation Class!
  • Pray for the believers to grow in their knowledge and understanding of God’s Word.

Jackson is sixty years old; he is a widower that lives in Mashongora village.  Having been raised in a spirit worshiping family where alcohol was regularly consumed, he became an alcoholic at the age of fifteen. Jackson had never attended any church and so had never heard the Word of God. Through regular visits to his home, we have seen Jackson’s interest in the gospel start to grow as we share with him. Sometimes he joins us in our home fellowships and testifies how the gospel is transforming him He no longer drinks alcohol but has not yet confessed Christ.

  • Pray for the Lord to help Jackson believe in the gospel and to continue living an authentic life in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Pray for Jackson to come to an understanding of his need for a Savior and to declare Jesus Christ as his Lord.
  • Pray for freedom from the addiction of alcohol.

The church is reaching the community through home visits. We intend to reach every house to share the Word of God, praying with the people, and inviting them to church. This month we visited thirty-four homes and spoke with two-hundred and four people. We organized a gospel rally in Rwembogo village and had two-hundred people attend. Sarah, thirty years old, gave her life to Christ. Turinawe, a visiting pastor form Grace Turbancle church, and Pastor Arinaitwe from Kaaro Truth Centre Church, shared the Word of God and our church choir ministered with songs of worship.

The Story of Pastor Robinson Kwesiga

My name is Robinson Kwesiga, and I pastor the church at Katoonya in Rukungiri, Uganda. I was born in a village close to Katoonya into a broken family where drugs, alcohol, and smoking were prevalent. I partook in these activities but wanted something more from life and felt lost. That’s when Pastor Onesimus shared the Gospel with me and brought hope into my life. As I read the Bible, I began to wrestle with my spirit about the things I heard, the battle between my will and the Lord calling for my life.

After pondering the Word, I attended a church in Kampala, and it was there that God healed my heart allowed me to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

In my 20’s I studied medicine and became a registered nurse, and through my church, I became a fellowship leader and deacon. After continuing my study of God’s Word, I became a church planter in 2015. Katoonya is a farming community interspersed with shepherds and cattle raisers. Witchcraft and demonic worship are something we face on a weekly basis. The enemy keeps many people in bondage, but we are making headway proclaiming the Gospel and seeing people set free.

With our discipleship training, we are equipping our people with a foundation of prayer and studying the Bible. Our goal is that our church members be ambassadors for the Gospel thoroughly equipped to do every good work.
