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 Etsy.com 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.

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
Occupation: none
Health Status: Blindness and advanced age

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.

Easter Blessings!


Be blessed this Easter!!!

The following article highlights what flows from Jesus’ resurrection power as we continue to seek to fulfill the Great Commission.

Transformation: The Purpose of the Great Commission

The Apostle Paul exhorted the people at Rome to ‘be transformed by the renewing of your mind’ (Romans 12:2). He also taught the church at Corinth that we ‘are being transformed into the same (God’s) image from glory to glory’ (2 Corinthians 3:18). This transformation is the reason we are commissioned to preach the gospel of the Kingdom and make disciples of all nations.

Jesus not only gave us the Great Commission; he modeled it. In Luke 4:18 and 19 He announced His intent or His mission statement. The Father appointed and anointed Jesus to:

[1] Transform the Poor

Jesus came with a message of good news that gave hope to those in poverty. Where the gospel is received and people become converted, their lives are changed and the blessing of God ultimately transforms their situation.

[2] Transform the Broken-hearted

Jesus was sent to heal those people whose hearts and lives were broken. Healing brings lives back to health and wholeness.

[3] Transform the Captives

Jesus not only proclaimed freedom for those who are bound, He delivered them from their bondage and has empowered us to do the same.

[4] Transform the Blind

Not only does this mean physical blindness being healed, but the eyes of our hearts being opened. Jesus’ message included renewed vision for those who had lost the ability to see hope for the future.

[5] Transform the Downtrodden

Jesus brought liberty for those who have been crushed by the circumstances of life and damaging relationships. He has authorized us to do the same.

Our community programs and missions activities only have value and significance as vehicles for the transforming power of God to change lives, families and communities. As we go across Uganda or into our community, let’s allow the Spirit of God to lead us to bring transformation!

The Commandments of God

When I think about the commandments of God, the first 4 talk about loving God and the last 6 about loving man – when people say God did away with the law, does that mean we don’t obey God commandments as believers? No it does not. The law does not save us, but the law shows us what sin is, so if we want to live as a child of God we must obey His laws and commands out of love for Him so we may honor and glorify Him as servants of the Most High God.

He gave all believers His Holy Spirit, so that the world will know He still lives in he hearts of saved men so we may be used by Him to reveal who He is. We as believers have the responsibility to reveal the light by not practicing sin and living holy lives. If sin brings death and if Jesus had to die for our sin to set us free from sin and death, why would anyone want to go back into bondage and live in it?

God’s grace is not a license to sin. God’s Grace is there if you do sin, it is then, when you do sin, you can ask for forgiveness – Jesus came to fulfill the law, not to eliminate the law. We can not live a holy life without the Spirit of God within doing the works through us. God said: Without me you can do nothing. Jesus said: So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Revelation 3:16 – “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:13

In other words, you can’t be living your life as the world lives part of the time and the other part live as a believer. Either you are for God, living for Him in complete devotion being sold out with the desire to obey Him or it is nauseating to Him – we all choose how we will serve – it is your choice – God or self –

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
