School starts on Monday for Promise Primary. We shipped 40 desks and 6 Teachers tables that we constructed for them. We also completed the playground…. a 10 seat swing set and 6 see saws. I love building playground…my favorite projects!
MERRY CHRISTMAS from Mission Servants Ministry and the children at Child Redeemed Mission Home in Uganda! Thank you to the Foster Class at Hickory Grove Baptist for funding the Christmas celebration and allowing these kids to know they are loved and valued. Everyone got a new outfit and best of all, they were taken to town to pick out their own clothes. Ice cream, a roasted goat for dinner, and a few sweets, balls, and books make their celebration. The kids at CRM know what they are celebrating when they receive gifts, a reminder that they are loved so much by God that Jesus came for us, purely as a gift of Grace.
Thank you everyone for your prayers, support, and encouragement. May God bless your Christmas and New Year.
Bob and Kathy Hillebrand, Greg Perkins, and Diane Zoppa…MSM Board of Directors
It is an incredible and humbling feeling knowing that a human’s future is going to brighten and change by walking in the front gate! Twenty children have been forwarded to the Child Redeemed Home in Uganda for admittance because their situation is extremely vulnerable. Risks posed by abuse, malnutrition, disease, and poor care are typical. Most of them need medical care and to be registered in school. They all need security, healthy lifestyle, to be loved and given a sense of worth, and hope for a life fulfilling God’s purpose for them. They are innocent and had nothing to do with creating their tenuous situation.
17 of the 40 children being cared for at CRM are now boarded in High School or Trade School and spend much of their school break time with their extended families. CRM is ready to receive new children. Children that need to join CRM in order to thrive. Mission Servants Ministry fully funds CRM and provides this opportunity completely through donations, sponsors, and God’s providence.
Please Prayerfully Consider Joining in a Hands-On effort…. “it’s God’s Grace to see instant security, love, and hope for a real future in a Child’s Life”…..and Sponsor one!
$50.00 per month supports a child completely…food, clothing, school. Unlike the large Child Funds, we have only one sponsor per child and encourage a relationship. 100% of sponsorship funds go to direct child support at the home.

One cool thing that I have realized during our work in Africa is how vast God’s network of workers are and how complex and perfectly tuned are His plans. MSM is involved at CRM because we were connected via Holy Spirit and internet to Kathy Bailey and her ministry Dominion Divas and she asked us to investigate in 2013. That was the beginning of our work in Uganda.
Much of the work we are able to accomplish is through help from other ministries.
Water Missions International had helped us with installing water wells at both CRM and the Kenyan orphanages as well as solar power installations. They are working with us on a project planned for our next trip to install a pump, chlorinator, and tank on an old well at the Balowoli Pimary School that our kids and 1200 other community kids attend.
We visited the Promise Primary School in a nearby town that is sponsored by Lillian, a 72 year old woman from South Carolina who has a heart for Ugandan kids and started a school two years ago. MSM helped her finish a badly needed latrine. The school has rapidly grown due to the need of poor families in that area and her resources were stretched keeping up with over 200 kids.
MSM worked with Ve’Neesha, a young lady who started the Love Exchange United ministry and sponsors school kids at the Rock View Primary School in a nearby town. This is a new school started by a retired Ugandan Pastor and Schoolteacher to help the local kids get a good start in education. A project is planned to build desks and tables for their expanding school during our trip in January.
World Mission donated solar powered audio devices called Treasures that have the Bible translated in Ateso. MSM delivered roughly 100 now to a group of Ugandan Teso Pastors that are reaching Kenyan Teso people. The Jesus Film ministry donated two solar powered video projectors that we delivered to allow the Teso evangelists to show the Jesus Film to thousands of Teso people. Restoring Vision has donated hundreds of reading glasses that MSM has fitted to people that lost the blessing of reading due to age, and trained others to bring this blessing into the field.
The Kamuli Mission Hospital in Kamuli and their sponsors provide excellent care for our kids when they have medical needs.
Abandoned Children’s Foundation has been partnering with MSM to bring volunteers and support to the Lord’s Servants Home in Kenya and CRM in Uganda. These volunteers are vital to the children and orphanages and do wonderful and loving work.
There are many other individuals and groups that are standing to help and are brought in by God’s faithfulness. It is humbling and awesome. This is all our Father’s work and we just need to submit to the call and be faithful. God IS good.
Thank you all for what you do….pray, hit like or share, sponsor or donate. The team of people that make up the care for the 100+ kids in Kenya and Uganda is amazing.
