A Church Planting, Disciple Making Movement
Hope And Grace International is working among some of the poorest people on the continent of Africa teaching them to win their friends, relatives and neighbors to Christ and to grow life-altering discipleship movements. In the process their futures are becoming fuller and richer through their relationship with Jesus and the new life principles they are learning.
Helping South Sudan Refugees In Their Time Of Desperate Need
The UN’s refugee agency, UNHCR, says almost 600,000 South Sudanese refugees have arrived in Uganda since the civil war broke out in December 2013. Almost 400,000 of them have come since July 2016, fleeing an upsurge in fighting and indiscriminate bloodletting. An average of 2,500 have been arriving every day since July, with that figure as high as 7,000 on some days. This great tragedy that is unfolding in South Sudan has compelled us to get more deeply involved in ministry to refugees, meeting basic human needs with, feeding, clothing, medicine, shelter and a message of hope. We are focusing our help on widows, orphans the elderly and pastors and their families.
Training Leaders That Impact Their Communities
Our leadership training is helping people become free from the devastation and bondage of animism (demonic worshiping tribal religion) which keeps them in fear and poverty. The Gospel is, in deed, good news that sets people free and we are training leaders who know how to lead people into spiritual, emotional and economic freedom.
Liberating women to live up to their potential
Women in the tribal cultures of Africa are among the world’s most oppressed people. We are working to change cultural attitudes that give women very little personal rights and that often force women into a life that is no more than a domestic slave. We are advocating for women’s justice.
Creative Gospel Outreaches That Bring Life And Hope
Since 1998 we have been bringing a message of faith and hope to the people of South Sudan. Thousands of lives have been transformed and put on a path of hope. We have seen over 160,000 women, men and children pray to receive Christ through village Healing and Jesus Film Festivals and school assemblies. Now we are focusing on a personal evangelism and disciple making movement that we believe will be multiplied throughout the various tribes.
Letting the Children Come to Jesus
The children suffer so much because of war and there are countless orphans who so willingly come to Jesus and need our help.
