As we are in our final stages of preparation to move to Uganda, we are still needing to raise additional support for both our start-up expenses and our monthly living expenses. However, I am writing to submit to you the needs of some of our co-workers.
Our family mission statement in moving to Uganda is “Establishing Ugandan leaders to disciple the next generation in Biblical manhood and womanhood.” With that mission statement in mind, one of our objectives will be to help the existing staff to explore their spiritual gifts so as to best utilize the tools that God has granted to the Kingdom work at Musana.
This work has already started in Musana under the leadership of Camp Director Syd Sparks. One Ugandan family in particular, the Kanyikes have answered the call to ministry at Musana. While the rapid growth of camp has required Medi to contribute in many ways, his heart is for camp program. With prayerful insight and wisdom, the Kanyikes were sent to the United States where they are currently in training at the LTD (Leadership, Training, Development) program at Camp Forest Springs in Wisconsin.
While they have obviously raised the funds to get here and get started on their training, they are still in need of support to complete the training and get home. They currently need $5250 for tuition, fees, and their room at Camp Forest Springs. In addition, they will still need approximately $3000 for their one-way tickets back home.
Selfishly, it is hard to ask for help for the Kanyikes when we are still needing support of our own. On the other hand, we desire for the Kanyikes to gain further education in line with their gifts and heart for camp program. We see this training as an investment in the community of Musana, and in the goal of discipling the young men and women of this rural area of Uganda in biblical manhood and womanhood. Would you consider, or share this post with others who might consider helping to complete this important training for the Kanyike family?
