Kentucky Color - Big Hearted South Central Kentucky

Another shipment of Bibles and Bible storybooks reach Bro. Sam Tindimwebwa's ministry in Kabale, Uganda, where Columbia, KY, evangelist Laura Harris recently visted and ministered. Gifts of all sizes pouring in, from 3trees church, JOY ministries, and money, and gifts such those from the family of the late Geniece Marcum's, whose personal ministry was handing out tiny Bible booklets. Now, a bigger challenge is underway in South Central Kentucky - a fundraising to rent and remodel a new home for Bro. Sam's work.

Again and again and again, South Central Kentuckians prove they are the most generous, caring folks on the planet. Brother Sam Tindimwebwa and his Mum's ministry and their little school of 51 children in their Kabale, Ugandan home have received another shipment of Bible Storybooks and Bibles.

Out of the 51 students at their home/school, 16 have no home and live with them and some other family. Kabale has been ravaged by HIV/AIDS leaving many children orphaned. Prostitution, alcoholism, lack of education, witchcraft, et al have contributed to the intense poverty of the region.

Laura Harris recently visited Brother Sam and ministered in Kabale. She reported that the poverty is real and the need is great. At present, many in this community and Greater South Central Kentucky are fundraising in an effort to rent and remodel a larger property to accommodate the nearly 300 additional Kabale children who are seeking an education and in many cases the stability of a home and a daily, hot meal.
