BREAKING NEWS!

Two friends of ACTION have committed a $20,000 matching grant to help get ACTION Uganda’s capital campaign into full swing before the start of the new school year in February 2018.

ACTION Uganda is trusting God for $110,000 to make its Christian nursery and primary school ministry sustainable. Our commitment is to make Jesus Is the Truth School (JITT) sustainable by expanding student enrollment, constructing 6th and 7th grade classrooms and other needed campus structures, and by purchasing a student transportation van. (For pictures and more information, click here.)

For every $1 dollar gift that you and other friends are able to give in the coming two months, these friends will match with an equal amount up to $20,000.

Please pray with us that before the end of the year the Lord will raise up donors to match and even exceed the grant commitment so construction may begin and the van be purchased immediately after the New Year.

To make a donation online, click the donate button on this page. In the comment box, type JITT Special Project #71052 for the classrooms and structures construction. Type School Van Special Project #71204 to help with the vehicle.

You may also send a check made out to Action International Ministries to contribute toward the matching fund. To mail your donation to the ACTION office located in your country click here for contact information. Be sure to indicate what Special Project your gift is designated for.

Thanks so much and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

 

OTHER NEWS:

December 2017 – Pastor Oketta Peter becomes the new ACTION Uganda Director on January 1, 2018.  ACTION Africa Regional Coordinator Nelson Reed and wife Linda have returned to the USA.

Kathy Matthews is raising support to join the team full-time, Lord willing,  by September 2018.

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES:

Donate to Where Most Needed – Gulu 

ACTION Uganda’s Children in Crisis ministries includes Home of Love, Family Strengthening Outreach Team, Jesus is the Truth nursery and primary school, and the Disabilities Ministry.

Pastoral Leadership Development (PLD) is a key ministry as we believe that the answer to the world’s brokeness comes only through Jesus Christ and that through His Church.  In Gulu, the PLD team studies together several times a week to prepare for conferences with rural pastors in remote regions of Northern Uganda.  The PLD team has been focusing on 4 locations to build a solid foundation and mentor these local pastors. But in 2017 the PLD team reached out to South Sudan refugee pastors living in refugee camps in northern Uganda. Regular training in camps is being planned for 2018.   

Guest pastors from abroad join with the PLD team several times a year to help in the biblical and pastoral training. If your pastor loves to teach the Word of God, encourage him to contact ACTION to find out how he might participate with the PLD ministries. Click here for more information on PLD opportunities.

Previously an ACTION missionary doctor began AU’s medical ministry which spanned across ministries and included ministry to the missionary community. Malaria and other diseases are so prevalent in Uganda and many cannot afford medical help. ACTION Uganda is seeking at least a nurse who can help address the many health needs of the children and poor we serve. Funds are always needed as AU strives to provide the best possible medical care to the most vulnerable.

ACTION Gulu: Deliver me – a photo compilation video on the 12 years of ministry began by pioneer ACTION missionaries, Jerry and Candis Bingham. The Binghams began their ministry in 2002 in Gulu, as the war with Joseph Kony in the region was winding down. Their focus was on vulnerable children, child-mothers, and pastoral training. Thanks to ACTION missionaries, Rich and Joy Sayer for making the video.
