Ugandan Missionaries

One of the wonderful shifts going on in missions today is the recent, but should be obvious, realization that God can use local Christians as missionaries to home and foreign fields. Today I have as a guest in my home Kahuma Cheaperfield, a young Ugandan missionary who works with Life Ministry Uganda. I have been blessed to work with him for a number of years in ministry in Kabarole and Bundibugyo (western Uganda). He is now raising support for becoming a full time staff member of Life Ministry Uganda (This is Campus Crusade for Christ). His personal support budget is approximately $200/month and the ministry budget is $500/month. Since August he has been on a ministry partner development assignment meeting and sharing the ministry God has given him. It is not well-known or understood means of support locally – Ugandans will give for weddings and funerals, but otherwise many are not generous for other good causes. Kahuma is an amazing evangelist and an incredibly energetic worker – always planning the next missions. Pray with him as God opens doors for him to share the vision of how God has called him to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in western Uganda and beyond.

Blessings on your day.
