Imagine smiles lighting up with joy, hearts becoming peaceful, Scriptures being memorized, hands reaching out to forgive and love others every day.

Ministry in Uganda
I serve the children and youth in and around Soroti, Uganda. I do this by drawing together young adults from many of the local churches and training them on how to start and run a lively children’s ministry. I guide young adults in story-telling methods, explaining Bible stories, planning lessons and craft ideas, and sending them back to teach the children in their churches. Occasionally I walk alongside the teachers as they lead a class.
I also cherish my time with the kids – participating in school assemblies, religious education classes, Bible club, Kids camp, and neighbourhood entertainment. Singing and ministering with OIL of GLADNESS brings joy to my life, as we strive to bring a garment of praise to churches and leaders in Soroti. We are working on a small piggery project to raise money for musical instruments and equipment. I am also involved in discipleship, friendship evangelism, and just overall encouraging the alongside the teachers as they lead a class. local church to understand and live in the GRACE of God.
While attending Bible College from 1995-1999, I fell in love with missions and East Africa. The Lord led me to the Netherlands for a year where I humbly served as a nanny. Afterwards I tutored missionary kids and discipled young people in the Philippines for three years. For five years I was supporting teens with special needs. I spent a year in Kenya and Uganda in 2009 and had my calling confirmed. Africa felt like home. And the people stole my heart.
