Team Uganda

Happy Independence Day to all our US brethren! Did you know that Uganda celebrates independence from England in October?

As we celebrate our nations independence I have been thinking about how much work it takes to get to the field and live on the field. In the vehicle above (side note: this is the type of vehicle that we hope to purchase. It is durable and heavy duty. It can get to places in the mountains that other vehicles cannot get to. Half of our outbound passage(one time amount) that we need to raise is for this vehicle) you will see a lot of people. These are just the Uganda folks: Team leaders, region leaders, executive directors, team mates. It takes all of these people to coordinate, train, support, encourage, teach, live with, joke with, and love for us to be able to do the work God is leading us to. Beyond the Uganda folks we have the ABWE team of people: member care, the finance people, IT people, and many more. Then you have churches and individuals! Without all of these people no work would get done. This is the church body! This is what we as a body have been called to do.

12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.

14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many. 15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? 18 But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. 19 If all were a single member, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, 24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, 25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.

1 Corinthians 12:12-26

Notice that we all have gifts and we all have a job to do. We suffer together and we rejoice together. We need you. We are willing to go, others are willing to send, others are willing to coordinate, and we need those who are willing to give and support the work. The monthly amount we need is $10,200. The outbound and passage amount that gets us there and setup is $89,900. If you would please prayerfully consider giving to our ministry. You can visit our giving page at:

On a side note, we should have prayer cards and letters soon, so if you are interested in getting one please let us know. If you think your church, small group, or anyone else would be interested in hearing about our ministry in Uganda, please reach out to us at

We love you all very much! Peace and grace!
