God the Great Multiprocessor

It's an awesome thing to see the Hand of God clearly at work and multiprocessing in ministry. What a great blessing for us to see Joseph grow from a difficult beginning as a boy in western Uganda.

We saw him blossom as he assumed leadership in a mercy home the Lord allowed us to launch. He then entered our university scholarship program and beat the odds in Uganda by getting a job when he graduated last year (only about 35 percent do).

Now he is listening to Jesus to use his limited spare time to minister to teenage girls in crisis.

Joseph said his heart was touched when pregnant girls and new teenage moms would knock on the door of his apartment while in university. Many asked if they could wash his clothes to earn money to feed their babies. Joseph says Jesus spoke to him and told him to minister to them.
Joseph shared his passion with friends and some joined in. He met Constance, who now has received her university degree in social work, while doing a university internship. She has come alongside him to minister to these girls. Many of the girls face being outcast from their families because they no longer can command a bride price. In the Ugandan culture, they may also be seen as bringing shame on their households.Joseph formed a Community Based Organization, Teenage Mother's Outreach (TEMO). Its vision is "A youthful generation that is morally, socially and spiritually pleasing to the Lord."

He also reached out to Mukono Church of Uganda Hospital, which agreed to refer girls in crisis to the budding ministry. Many of the girls contemplate abortion, which is illegal but frequent in Uganda. Others who have their babies would have no idea of how to care or provide for their babies without guidance from TEMO.
Joseph has sacrificially given from his modest earnings to support the ministry and has not asked for nor received financial support from the West. We are thrilled to be able to come alongside Joseph by not only mentoring and giving spiritual guidance, but also by allowing him to plant crops on a portion of the land The Rock has purchased for Kingdom View. Joseph always has had a "green thumb" and is excited to grow crops on .25 acre to produce income and provide food for the benefit of the girls.

It is wonderful to see God putting the land to work for His purposes already as we continue to acquire more land and raise funds for the Kingdom View Fellowship and Guest House.
