February 25, 2019
RABS MISSIONARIES RETURNED WITH GIFTS TO TWO UGANDAN REMOTE VILLAGES, MUSASI AND AWOROBU; WHERE RABS MINISTERED IN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN DECEMBER 2018
As we had promised those in new fellowship with the Lord Jesus and with us from RABS International Ministries, namely Rev. Eva Clive Nansereko and Pastor Denis Plkw Muwanguzi and Pastor Christine of Karamoja who oversees these two villages for RABS.
Our Mission began on February 20, 2019 in Moroto district inside the villages where Pastor Christine is doing ministry. This mission our RABS missionaries ministered in Aworbu and Musasi Villages.
We had to change the mission this trip as Kaabong district had to be put on halt. We started fellowships in three villages in Kaabong and their childrens’ needs are much more than what we have and expect to get at present.
No seed is insignificant bearing in mind the prompt nature of the need and request being made. Also Rev. Eva Clive collected clothing and she and Pastor Christine delivered a bag of used clothes to each village mostly for the children. In the photos you can see their desperate need.

The children’s needs in these villages are much more that what we currently have and expect to get at present. However, no seed is insignificant. It’s just the prompt nature of the need of getting the school supplies to the children, so they did not miss many days since school has now reopened was our priority. Rev. Eva Clive collected clothing and she and Pastor Christine delivered a bag of used clothes to each village mostly for the children. In the photos you can see their desperate need. The photos speak a thousand words. It is difficult to look at these small frail skinny children–without our help, where will they be in another year?
Rev. Eva Clive wrote: All children that are seated in front of Pastor Denis don’t go to school because of distance. There’s no teacher the school is very far. Almost all the people are illiterate. We were deliberating about starting something like a nursery school but it would require us to get at least one teacher for the start, one cook, Maize flour, chalk board, pens, books, pens, pencils, pieces of chalk, and a saucepan. It would be financially challenging because no parent could pay fees to help us operate even a small nursery class. I could register the village school under my school in Luwero District, but the finances are not available. I cannot see now how at this point a village school would ever be able to support itself.
Some of the photos show older children who used to go to distant schools but are no longer attending school because their parents failed to provide school requirements, (pencils, pens, and notebooks.) We have selected fifteen among those children whom we are going to pay school fees and dues in Aworobu village.
There are encouraging highlights from this RABS Mission.
The poles you see behind, that’s what they started in the village. The church members were still cutting poles yesterday. It is the members of Musasi village who started building for church and school. The lame lady is the one standing as the pastor in the Aworobu village. The church structures in both villages would also serve as school buildings too.
Finally, I share with you at the moment, there is one challenge in completing the building project. It has been extremely hot during the past three months and all the grass that would be used to roof is completely burnt. It’s brown everywhere. These folks will continue using the trees shade up to late April when the rains are expected.
Rev. Eva Clive and Pastor Denis and Pastor Christine
