Recent Ministry

We appreciate your financial support, unceasing prayers, counseling and guidance that have contributed to the smooth running of the ministry work of God. This past month God’s Embassy church was busy with every ministry preparing for the big crusade taking place in Rukungiri main stadium. People came from different corners of Rukungiri to spend the night in the presence of the Lord and welcome in the new year by seeking This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is December-Crusade.jpgHis grace. We were shocked by the size of the crowd that attended and can only credit it to the grace of God. We estimated that six-thousand people attended and over sixty-three gave their life to the Lord. We give praise and glory to Jesus!

  • Pray for those who attended the crusade to put God first in their life through the next year.

Flora is married to Robert. The Lord has blessed them with three children ranging from two years old to eleven years old. Flora is actively involved in the Rushasha home fellowship and loves leading praise and worship sessions. Robert is a casual laborer who does any manual work that is available and is not yet a born-again believer. His wife is praying for his salvation and is so grateful that he is not an alcoholic. Flora sells her labor by working in people’s gardens to earn income to sustain her family and keep her children in school. The families biggest challenge is the long distance they walk every Sunday to attend the church, traveling from Rushasha to Katobo. Flora is thankful to the Lord for her growth in knowledge of the Word of God and growing stronger in her faith.

  • Pray for the family of Flora, specifically for the salvation of Robert.

Olivia is a rising committed member in the fellowship with promising leadership potential. Even as a single mother with a two-year-old son, Olivia is consistent in her attendance of Bible class and Kasaroza home fellowship. She steps in to serve when the fellowship leader is absent. Her love for the Word and desire to participate in ministry is encouraging.  She is grateful for the teaching at God’s Embassy that has helped her grow in her spiritual life. Her main prayer request is for a favorable job near the church, that allows her to continue in ministry and attend services.

  • Pray for Olivia to find a job that will be a blessing to her work at the church and provide for her family.

Brian was entirely transformed by the gospel. He used to own a bar in Kasoraza trading center and was an alcoholic. When we started a fellowship in Kasoroza, we reached out to him and shared the gospel. He was saved and is attending the fellowship plus the Sunday services in Katobo with his wife and children. He slowly stopped selling alcohol, and he no longer has any remaining in his shop. He desires to start a business selling food.

  • Pray for the family of Brian and for his desire to switch to selling food rather than alcohol.
  • Pray for his family to grow in their faith and be a witness to the community around them.

 Doreen is being drawn to the Lord. We first met her during evangelism in the Kasoraza trading center. We shared the Word of God, and she explained that she was an Anglican but has been attending the fellowship in Kasaroza and listening to the Bible for the past month. We are praying and believing that she will totally surrender her life to Christ soon.

  • Pray for Doreen to thoroughly understand the gospel and come to salvation.
  • Pray for church land in Katobo.

Give thanks for the medical center, it is a wonderful testimony to how God answers prayer. The community has no hospital and is excited that the medical center will be a source of help and treatment.

Pastor Onesimus Testimony 

Pastor Onesimus ministers in the southwest corner of Uganda. Growing up in an agricultural community he and his family attended the local Anglican Church and visited a witchdoctor. As a youth, Onesimus began to have many questions regarding his faith. He desired to follow the Lord, but in his heart, he felt emptiness. He asked God how he could have this void when he attended the Anglican church and did everything the priest said. Onesimus asked the Lord to reveal himself to him, and the Lord did. Onesimus began attending an evangelical church and became a believer in Jesus. After his conversion, Onesimus refused to participate in visits to the witchdoctor. He was faithful to Jesus alone.

After his father discovered Onesimus’ faith in Jesus and the rejection of their family’s religious ways he chased him out of his house and Onesimus fled to Kampala. While there he attended University, managed several businesses, and worked on the staff of a parliament member. In the midst of this, the Lord pressed upon Onesimus’s heart the desire to become a pastor and plant a church in his home community in southwestern Uganda. As the Lord would have it one day, Onesimus met James Fazio the Dean of Students at Southern California Seminary in San Diego, California. Through their friendship, Onesimus was able to attend SoCal Seminary and earned a Masters of Divinity in pastoral ministry. Receiving several job offers from churches in the USA Onesimus rejected them all because of the calling the Lord had placed upon him to return to his hometown and raise up pastors to reach their people with the Gospel. Onesimus is the Field Director for White Fields in Africa and pastor of the church — God’s Embassy Katobo.
