Jerry was blessed to be able to go to Uganda in July of 2017 and meet with Pastor Robert. He is preaching and teaching in the district of Budaka, in the village of Kachomo. There God gave Jerry a vision to help these poor people who are living in leaky huts with poor bedding, sometimes with 5 children. Because of their living conditions, many have poor health. The vision Jerry has is currently to build homes for these people, and to help Pastor Robert purchase land to build a school and a clinic.
When Jerry was there he helped pass out bibles in their native language of Luganda, but unfortunately, most of them cannot read. It is the desire of Pastor Robert and Jerry to build a school so they can be taught. In the meantime, we would like to purchase devices that have the bible downloaded on it in their language so they can hear the word.
The village is located about 5 ½ hours away from any medical facilities, and it is the desire of both Pastor Robert and Jerry to build a clinic for them. Currently, if someone gets sick and they cannot make the 5 ½ hour drive to the city, they go to witch doctors who are located in their area. If there was a clinic, they could get medical help nearby and hear the healing words of Jesus at the same time.
The people who have received homes so far have been blessed and are seeing the love of God in action. Jesus said in Matthew 25:40: “Truly I say to you, in as much as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it unto Me.” Jesus was talking about clothing, feeding, and visiting, but we also believe it includes building shelters, and making life more livable for the needy.
The cost to build a home is $400 US dollars. The cost to purchase the land is $5000.00 US dollars. We calculate that the cost to build a school is approximately $2500.00, and a clinic approximately $5000.00.
You will see pictures of some of the huts the poor live in as well as the homes that are being built for them.
