Martin and Lillian have been called to serve the very poorest and most marginalised people in Uganda. Climate change, the covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have had a devastating impact on these people and on the local churches and indigenous organisations seeking to help them. Martin and Lillian serve on the leadership team of a local church as it shares and lives out the Gospel in the Namatala slum in word, sign and deed. Martin also works closely with key church leaders who oversee large numbers of churches in the land of Karamoja as increasing numbers come to faith. Martin is also working to strengthen the funding base of Child of Hope, a Christian charity providing free education and holistic services to the poorest children and their parents, with a particular focus on enabling the organisation to generate funds locally through a variety of businesses and agricultural projects.
Please pray: for Martin and Lillian as they begin their married life together and for their boys, Emmanuel, Deogratias, and Jonathan; for fruitful discipleship amongst the new believers in the growing churches in Karamoja; for the schools providing free education to the very poorest children; for the various businesses and agricultural projects, and that greater local sustainability of the churches and schools would be achieved.
