WORLD SHINE MINISTRIES (WSM) P.O.

Box 10262, Kampala Plot 22B Tagore Crescent, Kamwokya, Kampala, Uganda UGANDA AND UNITED KINGDOM UNITE FOR CHILDREN IN AFRICA

Norfolk is on the east coast of Britain, with the North Sea to the east and north and that remarkable inlet The Wash forming the northern half of its boundary to the west. Adjacent counties are Suffolk to the south, Cambridgeshire (that part formerly the Isle of Ely) to the south west and Lincolnshire to the west and facing it across The Wash. Norfolk has a population of 862,400 out of England’s 50 million from UK’s 62 million. It covers an area of 5,371 square kilometres (2,074 square miles).

Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, located in East Africa, has a population of about 30 million. It covers 236,040 square kilometres (146,615 square miles) and is 85% Christian. INTRODUCTION The link between Great Britain and Uganda goes back more than a century. A professionally selected volunteer team of twenty Britons led by Reverend Adrian Miller(a great friend of Rev Medad) from Norfolk, England backed by a local team from World Shine Ministries (WSM) has just ended a historic visit to Uganda (August 17 to 30, 2012). In the team was Benson Mugyenyi, a WSM representative in the UK based in Scotland. Others in Adrian’s team were Andrew & June Gibson, Nell & Harriet Smith, Andy Cox, Francesca Cox, Ian & Viviene Taylor, Jack Taylor, Jack Taylor, Isabel Taylor, Juliet Pannel, Hannah Rye, Linda Tayloy, Sue Bilham, Alan & Jane Hutt. The WSM team was led by Rev. Dr. Medad Birungi. Others were Connie Birungi, Margaret Kiswiriri, Reuben Kuribakanya, Alfred Wasike, Rachel Mutesi, Barnabas Kiruhura, Jonathan, Dinovence Kyomugisha, Faith, Brenda, Joel Jassu, Reuben, Francis, Eldad, Margaret, Turyatunga and all the staff of the school and some from Rwentobo community

We thank you God for this great and inspiring international mission! This report captures the details of the mission that covered rehabilitation of the World Shine Foundation School at Rwentobo (Ntungamo District), ground breaking for a three-storeyed dormitory complex at the same school among other activities

here and further west in Mwongyera Parish, West Ankole Diocese, and Bunyaruguru near Queen Elizabeth National Park. Hundreds were saved, healed and delivered as the joint teams of WSM and the Norwich group travelled hundreds of miles ministering to various congregations from Kampala to South Western Uganda under a nostalgic mix of refreshing landscapes endowed with one of the world’s rare fauna flora, nice food, friendly people, heat, dust, nice beds, rough beds, demonic attacks, and memorably irreplaceable moments. THE MISSION

Intense prayers characterised this mission’s preparations at the WSM Kampala office, the Prayer Mountain off Kampala-Entebbe Road and elsewhere:

Below at St Kakumba Chapel Kyambogo University

Below: At St James’ Chapel, born in 1947 is located at Makerere University Business School – MUBS

With danceable Praise and Worship music…

With soul searching sermons encouraging young people to maximise their time at university and notices…

Rev Adrian Preaching, Rev Kenneth and Patricia welcoming visitors and Rev Dr. Medad hammering a point at MUBS.

With more prayer…

With happy Holy Communion…

Below: A foundation stone is in place. Part of the congregation praying at the construction site of St James’ Chapel MUBS now operating in a dining/examination hall.

Crossing the Equator to the Southern Hemisphere. Nurse Brenda attends to the first casulty in the entourage, a left knee injury while loading our cargo into our ‘convoy’, a few hours earlier at Nob View Hotel, Ntinda, eastern Kampala…

LYANTONDE ON TRIP MISSION: In Mpumudde Church of Uganda at Lyantonde…

Above: In this Church are members who witnessed the East African Revival of the 1930s that spread to the rest of the world (Idah Mary Tasiime Entungwaruhanga)… Below: Some of the youngest congregants watch their visitors enjoying a clap…

Below: Benson prayed for our offertory while Reverends Medad and Adrian told us how their mothers adopted them into each other’s families so Adrian is a Mukiga in a white skin!

Above: “Tukutendereza Yesu… (We praise you Jesus…) a joyful pastor, while below: a childhood at the cross roads…?

Below: Jack and Nathan quickly assembled an enthusiastic playing group and gave out a football…on our dusty way back to the tarmac highway to Rwentobo…

OPERATION SUNRISE RWENTOBO: More than a hundred miles away, at the World Shine Foundation School (WSFS) in Rwentobo there was a warm reception when we arrived after dark.

Action starts the next day…tents are set up…

Eyes on the gifts…

The gifts including text books are given out to WSFS teachers…

The demand for pencils almost overwhelms Benson, Linda, Brenda and others….

The WSFS netballers received new kit….

Of course, so did the WSFS footballers…

To everyone’s joy…

For everyone… clothes…

And shoes…(are those Jack’s legs?)…and security was guaranteed for all…

THE MEDICAL CAMP: The medical camp led by Dr. Andrew Gibson was set up…More than 857 patients were treated… (157 on Tuesday, 231 on Wednesday, 263 on Thursday and 206 on Friday…many were turned away…there was a referal case to Kisiizi Hospital… the common ailments included unexplainable abdominal pain, itching/infected eyes, ear infections, among others… the patients ranged from babies to those above 90 years of age, according to a Senior Nurse Margaret Kiswiriri, a WSM volunteer.

Hundreds of patients patiently waited…the first patient gets attention…

The next patient gets a quick face wash ‘first aid’ from volunteers before she sees or is seen by the medical personnel…

Numerous complaints about ears, eyes…

Below: “…is the problem medical or spiritual?…” Faith asks for Linda and June…

The oldest patients (94 and 92 years of age) walked out smiling…

More ear, eye complaints…

Skin and throat infections…

More medicine…

The next patient, please…

A listening ear and a quick blood pressure check for the WSM Administrator…

Mother and daughter get diagnosis and treatment…

And more examinations and the Union Jack flew high…

And more patients were registered…

Below: Joachim was the most critical patient received during the medical outreach…complications in his head, breathing trouble, cough and other

problems… After prayers at the WSFS, he was refered to Kisiizo Hospital. Joachim and his mum were driven there and medical bills paid for…

Emergency examination on arrival at Kisiizi Hospital, oxygen and other treatment are administered… a very trying time for Joachim and those around him…he was admitted for several hours to the peadiatric ward…

After the gruesome hours, Joachim was discharged and refered to Mbarara Hospital…they were driven home and given fare for Mbarara next week…

While still at Kisiizi, Rev. Medad took the group to Kisiizi Falls, a spot where he almost committed suicide at years ago in his youth due to extreme anger and frustration…what a lovely and serene place at which to kill oneself…! The name Kisiizi (the place of much water) originates from the falls.

“…from that point, I nearly jumped down into the rocks…” Rev. Medad tells us…

We also toured the hospital, the Kisiizi Hospital School of Nursing and an adjacent primary school…

Above: Dr Ian stillman, the Medical Supretendant tells us that the hospital started operations in 1958. Confidence Kobutungyi, the Assistant Administrator was our guide to the falls. Moses Mugume Hospital Administrator and Rev. Medad hug after long. Below: into the Administration Offices and the Hospital Chapel

At the Kisiizi Hospital School of Nursing… with Senior Nurse Judith Namanya…

The visiting nurses are amused by the teaching dummies…

At the Kisiizi Primary School…

And someone turned a Golden Jubilee (50)! Happy Birthday Teacher Viviene Taylor…

Work continued…Viviene and fellow Teacher Juliet met their WSFS colleagues…

They shared experiences and worked out best practices…

Two painters sneaked and joined the Francesca/Rachel hairplaiting salon disrupting the teachers…

Finally, a happy international lot of teachers…

The WSFS Management Committee chaired by the WSFS Chairperson Zablon Bakeiha sat and resolved to make the school shine brighter…

The WSFS Director, Rev. Dr. Medad praised the school’s technical team for its work. He introduced Alan and Jane Hut who return to Rwentobo in January 2013 as missionaries…

The Management Committee at the end of the meeting…

The general rehabilitation of the classroom block and painters were at work …

Very enthusiastic painters…

More painters…

Painting the skirting…

THE WSFS DORMITORY

Breaking the ground for the WSFS Dormitory complex…the WSM Director, Rev. Dr. Birungi sent out an international appeal for assistance to complete this very much needed facility to accommodate mainly the girl children who have to walk long distances to come to the WSFS daily…

Access had to be created for this truck and other construction actitivies…

Visiting Engineer Neil Smith talks to neighbours while resident Engineers Martin Rukundo and Julius Bagira gets their act together…

Pre-ground breaking prayer…

Action for construction and development…

More action for construction and development…

Action for education of young people…

A concerted effort for educational action for all ages, generations and nations…

A few days later…

Yet a few more days towards the end of our mission…

Teachers Juliet and Viviene flank Engineer Julius as he inspects the new depths on his site…

This deep so fast…

Not far from here, there was another ground breaking ceremony for a homeless widow, Justine… the project is sponsored by Alan and Jane Hut…Below clockwise: Rev. Birungi, Linda, Jane, Alan and Engineer Julius assess the project set to be built on almost an acrea of land on the outskirts of Rwentobo town…part of the building plan…

As we break this ground, may this be a happy home…Rev. Medad, Jane and Alan prayed…

Talking about homes…we did home visits to five homes in which the WSFS children live… we carried for them gifts from their sponsors…

This family is composed of Friday Samuel (father), Scovia Ahimbisibwe (mother). Their children are Ruth Tusingwire, Mackline Kamuhimbise (15), Darius Niwagaba (14), Asha Amutuhaire (12), Zipporah Nyesigomwe (10), Patience Ayebazibwe (8) and Promise Kamwebaze (11 months).

This family is composed of Benon Rubarema (father), Alice Nyiraneeza (mother). Their children are Pierre Twishime (14), Justus Ainembabazi (4) and Annabel Ahimbise (2).

This family is composed of Christine Kyomugisha, a widow. The children are Unity (17), Benjamin Ndyasiima (12), Simeo Agaba (8) and their dog. Andy Cox sponsors a child in this family.

These are orphaned sisters who live alone. Agnes Kiconco (11) and Hope Namara (9). WSM contributed to the construction of their house.The Home Visit team failed to see another family in Rwentobo town. The family has problems. The

father abandoned them. His wife, Prudence Bakeihwahwenki is now the head. The other members are Temple Ninsiima (24), Joshua Akatwijuka (18), Obed Niwabiine (16), Isaac Turanzyomwe (14), Bride Ninshaba (13), and Emmanuel Ainebyona (below: Ian & Viviene Taylor sponsor this child who wants to study nursing. With them is the WSM Administrator Connie Birungi)

The WSFS hosted the parents of our school’s children…the meeting turned into a revival prayer congregation in which scores including children received salvation…

Moving testimonies: Rev. Birungi, Mzee Charles Karyeija, Mrs Birungi, Rev. Miller

A deliverance and healing crusade it became…

Even children received Jesus Christ…

Witchcraft regalia and fetishes were set on fire by Francis and Rev Eldad…

More prayers spread more healing in the villages around the WSFS: In this house were many witchcraft items which were dug out by a team of WSM prayer warriors and set on fire…this herb used in the ‘manufacture’ of the ‘medicine’ was uprooted and burnt…

A skull of a goat buried in the kitchen and other items buried under the entrance into the house…

The couple below denounced Satan after the ‘medicine’ was burnt. Scores of their neighbours received salvation as well.

Talking about more prayer…my prayer group during the mission…

OPERATION SUNRISE MWONGYERA THIRTEEN years later: St. James Mwongera Parish, West Ankole Diocese. Here more deliverance and healing took place among hundreds of worshippers living on the edge of the world famous Queen Elizabeth National Park… The Parish Priest and Host, Rev. Faustine Buteera told the open air congregation that his parish has more than 20,000 worshippers. The Parish comprises seven Churches including Mwongyera (host), Rutooma (9 kms away), Rushoroza (4 km away), Kagorogoro (4.5 km away), Rwentojo (5 km away), Nyandongo (8km away) and Igomanda (6 km away). He added that all Churches without full Primary Schools have Church Schools to handle and nurture children. Rev. Buteera recalled that when Rev. Miller visited this rural Parish on September 26, 1999, he was a Lay Reader. He registered success in his parish including preaching the Gospel to many, expanding the Church, supporting education at Nursery, Primary and Secondary levels, planting trees, among others. He cited lack of dormetries for Parish Schools, lack of electricity, lack of a Pastor’s house, lack of a Church hospital, among problems.

Multitudes gathered in prayer, even up in trees for better view like Zachaeus in Jesus’ time…

Rev. Miller received gifts including a map of Africa, a handbag for his wife…

And to drums and music he danced…

Rev. Buteera received a book with cash in it and Rev. Miller also received a drum…

More prayer and healing…

In Sunday School where Hannah and Andy preached to the young worshippers…

More songs and prayer…

Andy made a new friend…

The trees were filled with worshippers…while Rev. Birungi introduces his wife Connie he fondly refers to as Miss Uganda 1991…

We ate well…

The hosts ate too…

Meanwhile (below) there was a WSM sponsored program on Radio, Voice of Kigezi on Saturday. Benson talked about reconcilliation. With him in the studio is Enid Origumisiriza, the WSM Coordinator for the Voice of Women programme

The Rev. Miller and his team accompanied by Rev. Birungi and his wife went to Mweya for a rest. They later visited the River Nile source at Jinja. There was a sumptous dinner and prayer at the home of Rev. Birungi in Namugongo…

And finally our friends returned to England through Entebbe International Airport…

CONCLUSION The mission objectives were accomplished. The medical outreach had such a widespread impact on the community. Patients came from as far away as Rubale as in the case of baby Joachim. There is an urgent need for a hospital in Rwentobo. The ground has been broken for the dormitory complex. Its construction will have everlasting impact on the future of the girl child education in this community and western Uganda. Of course the classroom block has been rehabilitated. This should be maintained. The Gospel was preached. Believers were delivered and healed. They should be followed up and maintained in the faith. The best practices established through interaction between our teachers and the teachers (Juliet and Viviene) in Rev. Miller’s team should be built on. In three words, this mission was a perfect summary of Corporate Social Responsibility at its best. It was a worthy mission Thank you all for praying. To God be the Glory. God Bless U all.
