The Amazima School Update

December 21, 2016

​We’re less than two months away from our first day of classes at The Amazima School! Here’s how you can be praying:

  • The dedication is planned for late January! Pray for God’s presence to overwhelm all who attend, and for this event to bear witness of the incredible work God is doing in and through Amazima Ministries.
  • Continue to pray for the hearts of students who will make up our first class.
  • Pray for safety, peace, and joy for individuals and families who are in the process of moving to serve on staff.
  • Pray, most of all, that this land will continue to be used for the advancement of the gospel.

Thanks to all who have prayed and given sacrificially so that hundreds of students may come to know Christ through The Amazima School!

Amazima Graduation 2016

December 08, 2016

“If you want to get rich in a year, you plant beans.
If you want to get rich in ten years, you plant trees.
If you want to be rich for the next hundred years, you plant people.
I know that Amazima Ministries will certainly be rich for hundreds of years!”
- Julius Musasizi Kizito, District Education Officer of Buziika

On November 30th, we gathered under the hot Ugandan sun to celebrate a big moment for 62 of Amazima’s students! 250 people, all proud guardians, staff and students came together to take in this glorious achievement… graduation.

Thank You, Paragon Marketing!

November 09, 2016

A few months ago, Paragon Marketing decided they wanted to invest in the first class of students at The Amazima School. And they didn’t just want to write a check. They wanted to participate. They wanted to do something.

So what did they do? The Paragon Marketing staff spent hours filling 75 BACKPACKS with school supplies, toiletries, and other items our students will need come February. These backpacks are now in a container on their way to Uganda and should arrive just in time for our first day of classes at The Amazima School.

Come and See

October 27, 2016

“Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip.

Many of you are probably familiar with this exchange about Jesus’ hometown in John 1.

People from Nazareth were looked down upon and certainly weren’t promised bright futures. We know of another place with a reputation like Nazareth.

War-torn Northern Uganda is still recovering from devastation caused by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Hundreds of thousands were displaced and thousands were murdered. Children saw things no child should ever see and the emotional scars are still present today. How could anything good could from a place like that? Come and see.

Amazima Youth Conference

October 03, 2016

Every so often, all of the seemingly small, behind-the-scenes moments of ministry lead to tangible victories; like hundreds of children from Buziika and surrounding villages gathered for two full days under the name of Jesus. Thanks to the help of our staff, the local community and you, 288 of Uganda’s youth attended Amazima’s youth conference!
