For Hope and Purpose Ministries evangelization does not stop at our borders but goes beyond the United States of America to the four corners of the world. Currently, we are working on three International Outreach programs.
1. We are currently raising funds to build the Hope and Purpose Center in Kampala, Uganda, East Africa.
This initiative is to offer support to the local East African community, and to the Sudanese women and children who are fleeing their homes in South Sudan that is in the middle of a civil war. Most of these women are widows with children who have nothing–they had to leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs to save their children from the devastation that was happening all around them.
This will be a place of refreshment and short-term relief for those in need; especially those from the South Sudan who have come to Uganda—85% of whom are women and children.
We have seven trained team members in Kampala, Uganda working at this time. In February 2017, we will be traveling to Uganda to begin work on the permanent structure for the Hope and Purpose Center; a place that will offer hope and support to the community with assistance for the basic necessities like fresh water and food; as well as, a place for spiritual refreshment.
2. Our second International Outreach program is in Fort Portal, Uganda. In the field of education, we support 400 children; some of whom are suffering from AIDS, at a local school by providing school supplies and assistance with school fees as there is no public school system in Uganda. We are working to try to provide some basic playground equipment for the children because this is non-existent there. Many of the children have no parents as HIV/AIDS has devastated many families in this community.
3. Hope and Purpose Ministries is also working with the Kumba Diocese in Cameroon, Africa. We are purchasing 20 acres of land to grow palms as a way to create jobs and create entrepreneurism to bring money into the economy. The acres will be divided and the workers will become entrepreneurs and have a way to support their families.
