We had the pleasure of hosting a team from our U.S. sending church, Life’s Journey (Huntsville, AL) in July 2016. This episode of Almost Live from Uganda shows highlights from this trip including: visiting IMFC Manna Ministry recipients in their homes, two days of eye clinics in two locations (that we couldn’t have held without […]
Part of what Aggie and I do here in Uganda is to volunteer with International Missionaries for Christ (IMFC). IMFC’s Manna Ministry helps the neediest-of-the-needy in Kampala’s slums both physically (with crisis relief food), and spiritually (with counseling, prayer, sharing of the Gospel, and the starting of house churches). This is the bitter-sweet story of […]
G’day! This post we’d like to share with you some of our recent favorite photos. Enjoy!
Hi All. This blog post I’d like to follow up on something Aggie posted on Facebook earlier this month. IMFC’s Manna Ministry is currently working in the slum that Aggie grew up in, her kids were born & raised in, her mother died in, and many of her family still live in. It’s called Katwe […]
IMFC’s Manna Ministry reaches out to the neediest of the needy both physically and spiritually. I experienced this for the first time back in 2006 when I visited Uganda with my church from Alabama.

At the best of times (including having a job and supportive family), the slums of Kampala rarely make it onto the World’s-Top-10-Places-to-Live list. If you have a severely disabled child in this setting, to say your hardships have been compounded is an understatement. With essentially no government services or financial support for people with disabilities […]
Aggie, Ivy & I are now back in Uganda after our 12 month furlough in Australia. Our home church in the U.S., Life’s Journey Church, has come to join us in our work for a number of days. It’s great to have them here! What have we been up to? Check out this video to […]
We are now in Australia on furlough, but our hearts are not far from Uganda. This video, which we made before we left, is an overview of the different ministries we are involved in & what was achieved during 2012.
More than a billion people live in urban slums around the world. In Kampala, it’s estimated that 60% of households live on less than $150/month. With the help of local council leaders, International Missionaries for Christ (IMFC, who Aggie and I volunteer with) identify the neediest of the needy in Kampala’s slums, helping them with […]
