Bernard's Visit 2018! 

406025004755432829145356490898It was wonderful to have a visit from Bernard in early September. We were able to share fellowship together and hear wonderful updates and stories about Rhema Junior School. It's incredible to hear all that God is doing in that community in Kampala and we feel so blessed to have this friendship. 

The team that went out to visit in the summer of 2017 were able to take a few trumpets over for the children. It was such a blessing to the children to have an opportunity to learn and play some musical instruments and they have now started a brass band.IMG-20170816-WA0073

We continue to pray for the vision of a school expansion. By 2023 the plan is to have completed the second half of the school building. The school now has both nursery and primary sections. This expansion project will help provide accommodation to at least 200 boarding children. It will also serve to increase the number of children to 500 and help support at least 100 children with free education.

Guys with the kidsA team of five went out from the church to visit the school in Uganda. It was an exciting adventure for the team and came back with incredible stories of friendship and fun with the children.

Rhema School


the kids at the school
For many years now we have worked with Bernard and Alice and the relationship we have built is one of true friendship and companionship. We love and believe in them and what they do, and are privileged to share a deep faith with them. Spending time connecting with them has always been a priority for us, and although the distance is a challenge, we have grown together with them on their journey.

The land for Rhema school originally belonged to Bernard and his family. After hearing a calling from God to do something for thier local community they built the school on their own land.

Rhema Junior School is located in the Nakulabye slum, which is approximately 3 kilometres from Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. The population of Nakulabye is approximately 156 thousand people per 1 square kilometre.

The school educates 350 children aged 3-12yrs, who are facing issues such as aids, poverty and starvation with many of the children already living as orphans. The school offers the children a way out from begging, living on the street and eating waste from bins. We are continually looking to support the school to serve the community and the children.

The school also has a forest project; this is a plot of land that has been donated by the Ugandan government for the farming of trees to sell for timber. We hope that with support this project becomes fully self-sustainable and can fund future developments in the school and the community.
