    We were called by God to start a ministry in 2007 while working in the orphanage,school and church in Kitale Kenya but we did have fear as how we shall sustain our children when we move to village to start Ministy. We moved to Uganda in 2011 and worked with another NGO, I was helping in starting the school and Nancy dealing with the crafts training for the orphans. But the call was much and in 2015 January we moved back to Our village Busangi in Sibanga sub county Manafwa district to start the ministry,and in September we got registered by the government of Uganda as a Non governmental organization.

    We are involved in many activities i.e Church planting, youth ministry,women ministry and children ministry. We started a school this year 2016 to help the orphans and needy children of the community. Myself and Nancy who is my wife are teaching in the school,which makes the work too much that we need volunteers to help with school and other programs that we are running in the organization.

    We are less and the tasks is much, calling for more man power in volunteering with us in all aspects of life, education,health care, youth ministry, women ministry that is training them to use hands for self sustaining,agriculture as our community purely depends on agric. Computer and website designing, preaching and teaching the word of God, helping with our Nursery school and Awana program of the children reading the bible and memorizing the scriptures, singing and dancing, devolving their talents.

    We are located in the mountainous areas of the slopes of Mount Elgon with very beautiful sceneries,cool air and wonderful people who are so welcoming with a smile and a greeting "Mulembe" meaning peace.
    We are in the village but we have available water and electricity with Internet using your mobile phone to connect to the network.

    We also have good houses for the visitors to stay safe and running water and flashing toilets. Not leaving aside good security for our guests.

    My wife is a cook, she knows how to cook most of American foods and she likes singing and caring for children and all people love her so much. They call her Mama Nancy.
