ACTION Gulu: Deliver me - a photo compilation video on the 12 years of ministry that pioneer ACTION missionaries, Jerry and Candis Bingham, have been involved with in N.Uganda (thanks to ACTION missionaries, Rich and Joy Sayer, who created it).
Mike Watters serves the ACTION Uganda team as the outgoing Country Director. His wife Rebecca serves the team as Finance & Administration Coordinator and Human Resources Coordinator. The Watters, who arrived in Uganda in 2010, are focused on building and leading the ACTION Uganda team while discipling and equipping Ugandans through their local church in Kampala.
Jim and Kappy Robinette have served in Uganda since 2004 and are also based in Kampala. Jim trains pastors and church leaders in seminars and conferences, supports church plants, and does itinerant preaching. The Robinettes' ministries also include a weekly radio sermon and evangelistic outreaches. Jim coordinates Pastoral Leadership Development in central Uganda.
Josh Rattin is the new Country Director, Jesus is the Truth Nursery & Primary school director, and also coordinates Pastoral Leadership Development in northern Uganda. His wife Abby is Medical Coordinator, Communications Coordinator, and Short Term Volunteer Coordinator for the ACTION Uganda team. She has a heart for special needs children. The Rattins arrived in Uganda in 2011. Their five children, Grace (11), Moses (8), Ana (7), Noah (4), and Micah Otim (2), love living in Uganda.
Anna Pedrosa joined the ACTION team in 2013 to become the head teacher at Jesus is the Truth Nursery & Primary School. She is instrumental in the reopening of our Christ-centered school for vulnerable children.
Rich and Joy Sayer arrived in Gulu in August 2013 to begin learning Acholi language and culture. They are now taking on Home of Love children's home of the Family Strengthening Outreacher ministry for vulnerable children and their families. Their twin 4 year old boys, Malakai and Ethan, are enjoying making friends!
In Gulu, Home of Love children's home for vulnerable children has a child sponsorship program that is a unique way of connecting needy children with others that genuinely care. Sponsorships give families opportunities to open their children’s eyes and hearts to needs around the world. For more information or if you wish to support this ministry, go to: Home of Love.
Jesus is the Truth Nursery and Primary School seeks to reach children through excellent academics and Biblical teaching in a Christ-centered environment. For more information or if you wish to support this ministry, go to: Jesus is the Truth Nursery and Primary School.
Pastoral Leadership Development (PLD) is a key ministry in the Gulu ministries. In the north, the PLD team studies together several times a week to prepare to take conferences to rural pastors in remote regions of Northern Uganda. They focus on 4 locations to build upon solid foundations. Guest pastors from abroad join the team several times a year to contribute additional expertise as needed.
Mature, teachable, passionate Christians committed to discipleship are needed to serve as administrative assistants, educators, and children in crisis workers in Uganda.
Dr. Abigail coordinates the medical ministry which spans across ministries. Funds are always needed as the team strives to provide the best possible care to the most vulnerable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In response to many inquiries concerning the video "Kony 2012" and the media frenzy surrounding it, Jerry and Candis Bingham have written an article entitled Kony's Mayhem and God's Miracles: Then and Now in ACTION Gulu (click title to read response).
"WHERE YOU LIVE SHOULD NOT DECIDE WHETHER YOU LIVE OR WHETHER YOU DIE". These words are found on the outline of the African continent, part of a design on T-shirts and hoodies, created to raise funds for the ministry of ACTION Gulu.
