Our November 2019 was such a blessing! We were able to see progress on our land, spend time with our Ugandan family, and most importantly, serve in four very special villages. In each of the villages we served, we took hygiene and first aid supplies, shoes and clothing. We also shared a meal with each village.
OUR LAST OUTREACH TOOK US TO
We were excited to partner with FTC Team 16501 Squirrel from GEARS in Granger, Indiana who provided a LEGO Boost Kit. The team also readied and organized laptops and tablets that we also delivered to our ministry team in Uganda.
The first thing we were required to build on the land before any other work could be done was a latrine. This needed to be established before we could hold any gatherings on the land with community members, or start our community center building project. Thanks to our generous donors on Facebook's Giving Tuesday, we raised the money we needed for this first step. In terms of latrines, I think this one is looking very nice! :)
While we were in Uganda in November, we got to witness some progress happening on our land in Wabukwa. Our two acres were cleared and leveled to prepare for eventual building. It took three days and one big tractor to level this land. Check it out!
Kuyamba Ministries brings the African Children's Choir to South Bend on August 14, 2019.
This FREE concert will be held at the Bendix Theatre at the Century Center located at 120 Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, in South Bend at 7:00 p.m. Doors will open at 6:00.
Kuyamba is asking for you to bring a donation of mission supply items for our next trip. These items include small tubes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, first aid cream, orajel, cortisone cream, flip flops and washcloths. Come join us for a special night with the kids of Uganda!
Kuyamba is excited to announce that we've officially received our NGO status in Uganda. An NGO in Uganda is a Non-Governmental Organization that is established through the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uganda. This is an important and necessary certification for a ministry to have to have credibility with the Ugandan government. This will be a great help to Kuyamba as we break ground on our Kuyamba Community Center this next year in Uganda.
Our land in Wabukwa was also officially surveyed and titled in Kuyamba Ministries name as well. We are excited about the future!
The village of Namutumba gives Kuyamba a warm welcome!
Dear Kuyamba Friends,
We have some exciting news to share! On October 22, we are heading to Uganda for our first mission trip! Since we started Kuyamba in 2013, our team in Uganda has held weekly missions in villages, providing medicine, first aid, hygiene supplies, food and more to those in need. The goal of each mission is to help with any physical needs a person may have, and while doing so, build relationships and share the gospel by providing teaching, prayer and the good news of Jesus.
We are ready to take the next step! With fundraising and generous support of our ministry, we are ready to purchase land near villages that we serve. During our trip, we will choose a location and begin plans for a building that will serve as a feeding center, STEM school with technology training, a place to worship and bring the community together, as well as a place where we can meet medical needs during mission trips.
We believe God will continue to provide all we need to see this vision come to life. We prayerfully ask for your support in helping us get there. If you are able to support us financially, here are a few ways.
We are so grateful for any support you can provide, whether that be financially or with your prayers. You can be a part of touching the lives of people half way around the world. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like to discuss our vision. Beginning in 2019, we hope to take a team with us to Uganda to serve each year. We would love to know if you are interested in joining us in the future. God Bless You!
In His Service,
Dave and Sara

Taking the next steps on a project that FTC Team TOXIC began, the Amazzi team worked all summer to organize ten sets of Lego Education Kits that would build things like a windmill, a clock, a pulley, and a lever. This will help the kids in their STEM education in Uganda. The team also developed an introduction video to introduce themselves and show them how to build the models. Kuyamba sent luggage full of supplies along with these kits to our team in Gaba, Uganda. Kits arrived in Uganda on September 1st thanks to help from our friends at Sozo Children. Thank you also to Play Well Africa for helping transport some items for these kits.
He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
