Returning Home to Uganda

I’ve have spent the past three and a half years leading Global Family Rescue – first as the board chair, then most recently as the executive director.  Since last August, I have been living in Tanzania as GFR’s executive director, and it has been a life-changing experience.  I have appreciated so much the experience I have been able to have as a result of GFR, and I am fully confident in the board’s ability to be able to lead this agency forward into the future.

As of June 15th, I will be stepping down from my position at Global Family Rescue and stepping into a new role with Grace Ministries.  You might remember me discussing Pastor Robert Nabulere from the Miracle Centre in Kawempe.  Pastor Robert and I have been friends for several years, and quickly after meeting him I was impressed by the level of passion and leadership capability found within this man.  Grace Ministries is a missions organization out of Shorewood, IL who has been supporting Pastor Robert and the Miracle Centre for several years now.  I will be partnering with Grace Ministries to oversee and expand their mission in Uganda in partnership with Pastor Robert.  I have joined their team and will be transitioning over to this role as soon as my responsibilities with Global Family Rescue are complete.

 I am extremely excited about this new opportunity, as my heart has been in Uganda ever since my first trip there in March of 2009.  To take a leadership position alongside of one of Uganda’s foremost leading pastors in an effort to significantly impact the surrounding communities and villages is something I feel honored to be a part of.

All of you who have stood beside me during the past several years, I appreciate you more than you could know.  Your prayers, your generosity, your words of encouragement, your love have all been things that I could not have survived without.  As I look to this next phase of ministry, it would mean a lot to me to have your support in my new role at Grace Ministries.  A majority of my salary as well as our project funds need to be raised from my donors, and so I am asking if you might consider being one of the first ones to be a part of this.  You can click here to make a gift.  It would mean so much to me if you would join our team and help transform Uganda.
