Donate to Where Most Needed – Gulu

Mariana “Anna” Pedrosa joined the team in Gulu in 2013 to become the head teacher at Jesus is the Truth Nursery & Primary School, ACTION Uganda’s Christ-centered school for vulnerable children.

Kathy Matthews is raising support to join the team fulltime, Lord willing in 2016.

ACTION Uganda’s Children in Crisis ministries include Home of Love children’s home, 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 the Church.  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.

Dr. Abigail coordinates the medical ministry which spans across ministries and includes ministry to the missionary community to help other missionaries stay on the field.  Funds are always needed as the team strives to provide the best possible medical care to the most vulnerable.
