JESUS IS LORD MINISTRIES UGANDA

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.

House that needs a new roof.

Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry is the essence of our mission at Jesus is Lord Ministries. Under this program we assist orphans and vulnerable children. We have 50 registered children under our care and offer them primarily much needed emotional care. So many of our children have suffered the trauma of losing their parents due to HIV/AIDS and/or of living in extreme poverty, and we seek to alleviate their pain and provide emotional healing by providing a safe, loving place where these children are free to be kids again.

Foster Care:
Most orphaned children with family ties are supported at their relative’s homes. JILM provides education support, medical attention, school uniforms and scholastic materials to these children. Without such help these less-privileged children would have no access to education and medical care.

Your sponsorship of a child will cost $45 per month. That amount will provide education, clothing, medication and all other basic needs to the child that you sponsor!
Please educate a kid today!!

Why do we do what we do? The Love of God compels us…

Matthew 25:31-46
King James Version (KJV)
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Zabina Nalumondo and family. Zabina is living with HIV/AIDS. She lost her husband in 2009 due to AIDS and is now taking care of four grandchildren whom she is not able to care for well because of her illness and poverty.
