On Saturday morning, September 11, 2010, the Board of Harvesters International Ministries voted unanimously to approve our first Ugandan Partner, To Africa with Love. The ministry is headed by Pastor Samuel Mwesigwa and his wife Mercy, both graduates of the East Africa School of Theology. The ministry, which began in 2007, is located in the eastern part of Uganda in the Muslim area of Pallisa. There are already 160 people in the church that Pastor Samuel planted. Pastor Samuel is also the assistant director of his father’s ministry, Canaan Children’s Transit Center. Pastor Samuel and Mercy have started their own children’s home which currently cares for 12 orphans and they are operating 4 Children’s Bible clubs and feeding those in need.
To Africa with Love provides training to indigenous pastors and church leaders and Pastor Samuel is the Africa Director of Face 2 Faith ministries based in North Carolina. Pastor Samuel is passionate about his service to the Lord and has travelled extensively throughout several different African nations discipling national pastors and evangelists in their own countries.
Harvesters is thrilled to add another dedicated pastor to the fold and we pray that as we continue to tell of Samuel and his ministry that you will be moved to assist this ministry through prayer and financial support. During the next few weeks we will be adding more information about To Africa with Love to our web page, so check back to see pictures and read stories of this young and growing ministry.
