Witch Doctors Admit To Performing Human Sacrifices In Uganda

Found this story in the Telegraph.co.uk from January 7, 2010 on witch doctors in Kampala. From my experience in Kampala, I know it is true. Human sacrifices have been made by witch doctors in the slums where we are working. I have seen little children with pierced ears and earrings so they would be imperfect and not become a target of the witch … [Read more...]

Underway At Nateete

The first food distribution went very well. No rain. No flooding. This is truly a blessing because it has been raining since and the entire place has been under. We could have never given out the food under these circumstances. So, we pray the Lord give good weather next month as well. Three churches have also been started in Nateete. Two were … [Read more...]

Posho! Bland But Life Saving Food!

Ever had a big bowl of posho? Probably not! Posho is one of the staple foods in Kampala and IMFC provides about 33 pounds of it per month to the Manna recipients. The Ugandan's love posho; most of the volunteers don't care for it. Posho has very little if any taste. The beans IMFC provides gives it taste. With beans, it's not bad. As … [Read more...]

Meet Margret of Mulago Slum

On my recent trip to Kampala, I had the opportunity to meet Margret who lives in the slum of Mulago. Margret is currently one of the people IMFC is helping through Manna Ministry. She is a precious lady with two children and God really touched my life in the thirty minutes or so I visited with her in her home. I thought you might like to meet her … [Read more...]
