Greetings to you in Jesus’ mighty name,
Some of you may have heard of our brother-in-Christ from Kenya, named Victor. He is the joyful man standing next to Charlton, that has a smile on his face. Victor has been battling cancer for several years now. Last year he traveled to Kampala, Uganda to receive high level radiation in the hopes eliminating his cancer. His cancer has now spread, so he has traveled from Kenya back to Kampala for 2 weeks of radiation in hopes of reducing the cancer growths and helping with pain reduction.
We are thankful to have the opportunity to stand along side of our dear brother through this time. Since we are in Kampala, it makes it possible for us to be with him. Brother Joseph Ssemanda (pictured above) has devoted himself to visiting Victor daily since he has arrived. He has been praying with him, reading scripture to him, and they have been going on walks together. Today they began reading through the Sermon on the Mount.
Please be in prayer for Victor. Pray that he will draw near to God in this time. Pray that his treatment will go well, and for pain relief and healing. We give God honor and glory for all the things He is doing.
Thank you to all that have financially made it possible for Victor’s current radiation treatment. This has been fully funded, praise God! There could be further needs after we receive the doctors recommendation of next steps in 2 weeks.
FOR THE KINGS GLORY
Greetings to you in Jesus name!
And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. – Colossians 3:17
We are in the midst of a new church/mission plant in Kampala Uganda. Currently we have one family on the ground The Sweazy’s, as well as Wanda Sweazy and some singles. Recently a native family The Ssemanda’s joined us, and are playing a major role in the work on the ground. Lord willing the Stierle and Buxton families will be moving to Kampala in 2016!!
We have a big vision for the seed of the Kingdom of God to be planted into the hearts of men and spread throughout Uganda into all of Africa!
We need your prayers as we move forward, there are many needs in Kampala, beyond just personal needs. We are active in discipleship rooted in relationship, leading various bible studies, as well as numerous projects from cleaning up slums, to medical care for the disabled, assisting at the crisis pregnancy center, teaching English, first aid clinics for street children, and education for vulnerable children. We also are in a time of setup, preparing for the new families to come, housing setup, and establishing an NGO, and much more.
We would like you to consider making a monthly or one time contribution to the ongoing work/needs. We are just the conduit for your financial gifts that can help accomplish much good in Jesus name. Please remember us in your prayers, and send us your prayer needs too.

“the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Followers of the Way Kampala had the blessed privilege to work along side our dear brothers and sisters from the Boston fellowship and other native Ugandans to initiate one of many clean up projects.
With the approval of the local council we put a team together to collect and burn trash, as well as clean out the drainage system that runs through one of the slums. This is a very small chip in the iceberg as we seek how we can help create a lasting solution and empower those who live in the slums to work together to care for God’s creation.
Here are some pictures to help tell the story.
