In Southern Uganda - Naboth and Alice have been helping approximately 725 needy orphans. This couple haven't had much to work with, but they've been doing everything possible to extend the love of Jesus. To meet the basic needs, they've been digging-up cassava from their garden . . . they've been selling-off whatever they can for food and necessities . . . their teachers have been working without any salary . . . and they've all been praying hard.
Earn all you can and save all you can to give all you can for as long as you can ,an effective Leader will invest his life ,his money ,his time and all he has for the kingdom of God ,Alice and Naboth have invested all in what God has called them to do, for the last 18years ,and GOD has proved faithful to them. JOB 42:1-2 ''I know that you can do everything and that no purpose of yours can be withheld from you''
The name of the Project is Guma na Yesu.To remember this African word (from the Runyankole language), just think of the word "GUM" . . . and imagine chewing a sweet, delicious, sticky wad of GUM . . . and to keep chewing it for a long, long time. The name of this new orphanage project is Guma Na Yesu (pronounced "Goom-uh nuh Yay-soo") - which means "Keep with Jesus!" The long-term vision is to care for hundreds of orphan children through the support network of a strong Christian church and caring Ugandan families.
The vision is to build a Guma Na Yesu Children's Center - with a free orphan school, basic provisions (of food, clothing, and educational supplies), and a family support base - to enable hundreds of orphans to be adopted into Christian families.
The vision is for each orphan child to "keep" with Jesus for their entire lives!
Here are a few pictures of the children . . . and the current building progress.
The heart of this orphanage project is to train children in the Word of God and in a life of knowing God - so they can fulfill God's purpose. These children experience the presence of God daily - through prayer, child-led preaching, and through fervent worship and dancing.
These children love Jesus . . . and their heavenly Father loves them.
Who We are
The Lord is just begining to give a new vision for Guma Na Yesu and through His wisdom and direction, He's showing us how the needs of these children can be met. This orphan ministry is founded and directed by African ministers, Naboth and Alice of Southern Uganda. Currently, this work is being assisted by USA evangelists Jon & Ann Dunagan of Harvest Ministry.
The vision for Guma Na Yesu is for it to be nationally-directed on the local level, by Ugandan ministers, teachers, and church families -- under the blessing and direction of JESUS Christ and the authority of God's Word.
How you can Help us
The need is very big . . . beginning with several thousand dollars a month . . . for basic food and sustainance needs for these 725 children (not including any building construction, educational needs, or on-going support). Please pray with us for God's abundant provision. And if you want to help, do let us know.
