We partner with Amazing Grace Adoptions and Kisoro Baptist Church in Kisoro, Uganda
We have been sending short term mission teams to Uganda since 2013. We sent our first team in partnership with Amazing Grace Adoptions & Orphan Care. They were already working with Pastor George Mbonye in Kisoro, Uganda to help him establish a culture of adoption. They have been working together to help change how Ugandans care for the great number of orphans there, moving them from an emphasis on orphanages, to one of Christian families adopting these children.
The need is great because Uganda has the highest proportion of children orphaned by the AIDS epidemic worldwide. Civil unrest and the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) have added to that number, leaving Uganda with an estimated 2.5 million children who have been robbed of their families.
In 2014, Pastor Gary Combs led our church to formally recognize Pastor George Mbonye and his church, Kisoro Hill Baptist Church, in Kisoro, Uganda, to be our sister church and gospel ministry partner. Since then, our church has been sending both short term and long term teams to work alongside Pastor George and the dozens of churches he has helped plant.
Our teams go to teach children, train teachers and to encourage and train pastors and their families in gospel ministry. We are also helping Pastor George establish a biblical training school for pastors in southwest Uganda.
