Our testimony is that God is truly faithful. God chose us to make
disciples of Jesus. In 2004, He pointed us to Uganda, where from day one
our mission was to raise up a ministry empowering people with the indwelt
love and knowledge of Jesus. We teach how the Bible says this sets us
free, making us “more than conquerors.”
True empowerment to us meant Ugandans stepping up as disciples to grow,
manage and make the ministry financially sound without funding from
overseas. That has always been our vision, desire, and prayer, though at
times from a worldly view, it seemed unattainable.
But God is not bound by worldly circumstances. He has answered our
prayers and fulfilled the vision by joining us with Uganda Christian
University to assume full oversight (under authority of the chaplaincy)
and financial support of Kingdom View effective this month. We are
entirely compatible with the leaders and doctrine of UCU, whose mission
and commitment are to “equip students for productive and
holistic lives of Christian faith and service.” UCU is
retaining deputy managing director Christopher Byomire to help lead the
Already significant increases are happening in students taking
advantage of the facilities at Kingdom View, including those newly coming
to faith in Jesus. We are joyful to see the ministry mature into a
Ugandan legacy for Jesus.
As for us, our calling remains the same: to make disciples of Jesus.
Margaret will continue working with students preparing them for life by
learning their God-given skills and seeking employment after graduation.
Doors have opened for her to minister in Dallas to refugees needing
resumes. Both of us will be resources for UCU staff and students as
needed. Our Ugandan ministries of providing Life Application Bibles for
students and pastoral care weekends for pastors, missionaries and their
spouses who need a peaceful weekend break in the Kingdom View Guest House
will continue. Your donations are to the Rock Outreach as before as we
continue to serve.
Mark also will focus in the US on reaching and encouraging people through
the Freedom in Christ ministry. The ministry teaches our acceptance,
security, and significance in Jesus. Also, that we are who the Bible says
we are, not necessarily who the world defines us to be. Mark has been
leading this ministry at Kingdom View in Uganda for the past 10 years.
The impact on individual lives (including our own) was and is amazing. In
addition, both of us will be available to encourage and coach future and
Thanks to all our supporters and prayer warriors. Through the years and
the coming years your support has and will enrich the lives of people in
East Africa. Your involvement has yielded an amazing dividend. We look
forward to sharing more with you as God continues to open doors. Please
feel free to visit Kingdom View and Uganda Christian University if you
travel to Uganda. Christopher will be
happy to show you around.
