Uganda

In a joint venture with the E-Free Church here in Grant, two times a year a small team from our two church’s travel to Kayango, Uganda to assist the church in the great commission. Today, along with helping equip local churches, over 125 kids are currently being discipled, nourished, and educated by families in the two church’s.

This page is dedicated to the kids in Uganda that we strive so hard to support and bring the good news of the gospel.  This page is still a work in progress and the project continues to grow and move forward so be sure to keep watching for updates or visit E-Free’s page Kayango Home of Champions or James’s blog Kayango Kids page for more information.
