Recent Ministry

Warm greetings from the Katoonya community. Thank you for supporting us to continue serving the Lord. God is at work in the lives of the people in our fellowship.

Joyce is married to Kenneth, and they have three children between the ages of seven and three years old. The family survives through selling casual labor, and they live in a temporary home. Joyce is a member of the choir, and the children are Young Ambassadors. They pray for their daily needs to be met and for their children to be able to continue school.

  • Pray for the family of Joyce and Kenneth.
  • Pray for the strength to work hard and earn the school fees in addition to the funds for their daily needs.

God is increasing the number of people coming to the church from sixty to seventy-five. We are praying for the funds to build the walls of the church. We strive to train the members to become participants in reading the Bible, leading the praise and worship, and preaching in the home fellowships.

We pray for Robert to continue to serve the Lord faithfully and hunger for the Word of God.

Robert is one of the rising potential leaders in the church. He is the general secretary and leads some of the church programs. Robert has demonstrated a love for God’s Word and is an active participant in his home fellowship. He has recently developed the courage to stand before crowds and declare the truth with boldness making him a potential future preacher of God’s Word.

  • Pray for Robert to passionately study the Word of God and cultivate the ability to preach the truth to his community.
  • Pray for a job that will allow him to care for his family and complement his desire to learn more and serve God.

We have seen God at work through Win, who is married to David. They have three children. Win accepted the Lord in the past but was not living for the Lord. Through our consistent visits and conversations with her, she has come back to Christ. For a long time, she was praying for solar power in her home. Recently a relative bought and installed solar for Win so they would have light. She is grateful for this answered to prayer.

  • Pray for Win and David to grow in their faith and to serve the Lord God.

Medius is thirty-six and is married with three children. In the past, she expressed to us that she spent so much of her money for witchcraft that she became poor. When she was saved, she was delivered from the bondage and enticement of witchcraft and has been able to keep this money.  Medius now affords the school fees for her children and is doing better economically.

  • Pray for Medius to grow in her faith and to rely on God for her needs.
  • Pray for her children to study hard in school.

Our outreach to the community through home visits this past month traveled to thirty-five homes. We shared the gospel with one-hundred and eight males and one-hundred and thirty-three females. Many were welcoming and happy to have been visited but have not yet joined the church. We will continue to visit them.

Moses is a man who is being drawn to faith in God and has shown more interest in our Sunday services. He even welcomed our prayers with him last Sunday.

Sometimes activities in the area attract people’s attention, and they end up not coming to church; these include open markets or casual money pooling groups that have an aim to help their members get start-up capital for their small business or other development.

  • Pray for the church congregation to put their trust and reliance on God to meet their daily needs and future desires.
  • Pray for the people to have wisdom and discernment in their finances and make wise investment decisions.

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.
