BBB Ministries of Uganda knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2017, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome obstacles much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch brave.Beautiful.BOLD Ministries of Uganda.
It was time to make it our mission and give women and children a second chance at a better quality of life. To empower and teach sustainability so that each woman and child feel brave, beautiful, and bold enough in Christ, to stand up for themselves so that they create their own impact in their community.
Director of Marketing
My primary roles are a wife and homeschooling mother to my five children. I have always had a deep desire to serve in missions, I just didn’t know how. I grew up with Lily and always loved seeing her passion for missions. I would joke that I was living vicariously through her mission trips because I felt like I “missed” my opportunity to go.
Well, I learned that the heart for missions was put there by God and He would show me that although I thought my “mission” was at home I could still have a role in missions. After all, the Great Commission is for all believers.
God showed me in a dream that Lily had plans to start a mission home, I knew then that I wanted to help in anyway I could. To say I was honored when Lily asked me to join the team would be an understatement! I feel blessed that my husband shares the same passion and was able to go help in the initial construction process of BBB. Even more blessed that I was able to go visit the campus in February 2020. That is really when my personal and God given dream became a reality! Faith can move mountains!! I left in awe of what God does when a person answers the call. I was also encouraged and inspired that there is soo much we can do and that we should never limit God.
“God is looking for people through whom He can do the impossible. What a pity that we plan only the things we can do by ourselves.”—A. W. Tozer
I come from a very poor family in the village of Rusaki. I am one of six children, second oldest in the home. I grew up with an extremely abusive father and never really understood life to be different. My father has four other wives, so my mother and my siblings were cast aside all the time. We grew up in fear and always running to hide when we heard our fathers voice. Though our hiding didn't work, God helped us as we got older to learn how to stand up for ourselves.
I worked very hard throughout all my school years, to be the first at everything. I wanted to be an Architect so that I could build my mother a sturdy home.
I met Lily when I was in High school. My mother used to clean the compound for some of her fellow missionaries. She asked me one day if I spoke English, as she needed a translator, and I said yes! We eventually started working together doing village ministry through feeding programs and medical camps in the village I come from. We have provided aid to thousands, continually, and her unconditional love pushed me to dedicate my life to helping the poor in need as well. She has taught me that it's not about us, but about others around us that need to see and learn about Gods glorious blessings.
Church Leader & Coordinator
I am Ugandan by birth, aged 22. I came to believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in 2012.
I am currently perusing a Bachelors in Social Work and Administration at Kabale University. My passion and purpose is being a blessing in the lives of others.
Since early Feb 2019, I came to work at the BBB Ministries Campus as a teacher. It has been an amazing experience being part of the team and fully knowing the impact given to the locals on the ground, especially the children.
I've been able to meet my purpose in life by Evangelizing through village ministry, teaching in the Women's Workshop and even getting involved in speaking to the men that work in construction.
Living at this campus has taught me invaluable life experience and has begun preparing me for marriage and fatherhood. It has been an all encompassing journey thus far and I pray to continue it for as long as God allows.
Director of Finances
I'm a wife and mother of five beautiful children, with a love and passion of serving faithfully from behind the scenes.
Fundraising & Education Consultant
I studied English and Music at Wayne State University, and Secondary English Education at Eastern Michigan University. Education and philanthropy are my lifelong passions and I am excited to be part of not only educating others about the work here at BBB Ministries, but also about building bridges of trust and accountability between partners on the ground and those abroad.
