Home Prayer Groups

Home Prayer Groups

Amen Amen!!

We really want to give thanks to our Mighty God because of our home cell prayers, whenever we go to prayers on Tuesday and Thursday many people join us even the ones who are not saved.

We started with 5 people but now we are 17 and we believe God is bring more people to join us.

In these home prayer cells, we pray, teach people the word of God, pray for the sick, and invite those who are not saved to get saved.

A widow at the home cell prayers gave a testimony and here it goes:

At night around 3pm when I and my children are sleeping, I heard a child saying “Who poured water on my bed?”

The child was feeling and touching something so cold; I had to wake up and get a candle.

When I checked, it was a big snake on the child’s bed!!!!

We cried for help from the neighbors and they responded so quickly, the snake was killed.”

There are so many great miracles that the Lord is doing in our home cell prayer group and the numbers of people are increasing every time when we go for prayers.

This is what our director David Oteko in Uganda told the group after the testimony:

The Lord says in Psalm 91: 13

You will trample upon lions and cobras,
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet.

Psalms 91:14 says:

The Lord says will rescue those who love me,
I will protect those who trust in my name.

Please my brothers and sister, stand with us in prayer for this ministry that God will continue to do mighty miracles for the widows and orphans.


Our widows are making paper necklaces for income-generating activities and soon they will be on sale here and hopefully on as well.

This project will help the widows and their families to earn a living since these crafts will be sold all over the world. They are in different colors and we hope that you will order a necklace or other craft to help a widow in Uganda. More information coming…



Your support means a lot to us and we request that you continue to support our work since we operate only by the contributions of our friends.

May God bless you so much.

A Visitor from Australia

It was around 3pm 30 Thursday when our managing director Mr.David Oteko, (the one in the white shirt in the photo,) got a call from our Lovely Sister Maria Ruiz from Australia saying that she was already in Kampala, Uganda and she was so eager to visit our ministry on Friday, May 31st. On Friday afternoon, she was already in Jinja waiting for Mr.David Oteko to go and pick her and we really shared a lot with her at the office, she was really a blessing to us and the ministry at large.

She spent the whole day with us and she really appreciated our work.

JINJA DISTRICT. In the village of Wairaka Jinja district, on May 25th we supplied scholastic materials to over 64 children. 35 were our registered children and 29 others were children of the widows we help.

MAYUGE DISTRICT. In Wandago village Mayuge district, on 26th we gave out scholastic materials to 16 children (orphans and vulnerable).

When we finished the building of Florence Bengo’s house 13th April 2013, we took a brief tour in the village; we did not know that God was leading us to help another widow who urgently needs help!

God led us to this widow called Rachael Nabiry who is blind of 86 years, she is staying with two of her daughters children who died of AIDS and they are the ones who are now taking care of her which has made these children not to get a chance of going to school. The whole house needs to be renovated, the roof links when it rains which causes them not sleep some times when it rains at night. We need your support to help Rachael and we can do it with your support.

Name: Rachael Nabiry
Age: 86

This is the picture of her full house which she sleeps in with those two kids. The iron sheets of the roof are all very old and they leak when it rains. The whole roof needs to be removed and then replace a new one and that is what we need to do for her – if you can help us to do it.
