5TH Year Anniversary of RABS’ Mill

One of the happiest days of my life. Seeing Mama Cyndi’s Milling project in full operation. The concept of a RABS’ business to help support the missions and humanitarian campaigns began knocking in late 2017, after my visits to Uganda and Tanzania.

We built the Mill in one of the poorest communities, Kierika Kasokoso, a suburb of Kampala. Construction began later that year.

Returning from a 35 day mission both in Kenya and Uganda the RABS International Team and our Kampala strong Leaders and I dedicated it to the Lord and His Kingdom and the community in February 2018. These photos were taken in 2019 while I was on the mission field in Uganda.

I’d like to share a godly truth with you, when God knocks on your heart’s door and tells you to do what seems impossible, just surrender and do it!!!

He works it all out to be achievable. I had paid off my mortgage November 2016 and was gladly building up my retirement account. However, in 2017, I heard the Lord’s voice in my heart that the money I was putting aside wasn’t mine but it belonged to His Kingdom.

I’d be lying if I said I immediately complied. It took some convincing. In the end, I surrendered to the Lord. The result is this Mill that indeed has attributed to hundreds of salvations both in the community and the surrounding areas and in the nation itself.

Each year 25% of the net proceeds helps feed some of the Mill’s neighbors such as the elderly women, widows, and single mothers. When we have emergencies in the mission field, the Mill immediately takes care of them.

I don’t share this to brag, I share it to encourage you. This project was hard, troubling, heartbreaking, maddening, way over budget, and at times overwhelming. However, the ‘test’ that the RABS Uganda Team and I went through became our ‘testimony’ to the goodness of God. The messes we found ourselves in at times, became our messages witnessing that we should never stop trusting Jesus.

Remember: There is always a story behind the glory! We who believe in the Lord Jesus will stumble and fall, but His outstretched arm will always lift us up!

The Mill is owned and operated by RABS Ministries International LTD of Uganda. Donations are always welcome.

Thank you and God bless you and yours.

“You can give without loving. But you cannot love without giving.” Amy Carmichael

2023 FILLED WITH GRATITUDE: We wish to thank you for your past generosity in supporting some East African Childrens’ Education. Most children in the remote villages are not educated and most that are do not go beyond 5th to 8th grade.

It is very rare and expensive for the average village Ugandan family to send one child to school, let alone a large family of children. Many village children end-up being the family water-hauler which includes carrying water containers much too heavy for a child who walks approximately 3 to 5 miles to the nearest government well. They tend to the flocks in dangerous wilderness areas. They work the fields and family gardens. They tend to younger siblings to help their mothers.

Contraceptives in many remote villages are not allowed by the husband and some villages are too deep into the bush that such care is unavailable. With their many cultural practices, we must be respectful. It is not our place to force changes on their generational lifestyles.

However, we can make a difference by helping educate some of the youth by meeting school fee costs and school supply costs. With hope that in time when they become adults there will be a good chance that education will assist in some changes beneficial to all remote villages and the villagers.

God bless you and thank you for your partnership with RABS International Ministries.

RABS Uganda students’ update November 20, 2023:


It is with great pleasure that I bring greetings from the 18 students that are being sponsored by RABS International Ministries in Karamoja districts of Kaabong and Moroto. Special thanks to Mummy Cyndi and all RABs partners and facilitators for enabling these children to attend school who otherwise would be out of school.

This time I began my activities with the Kaabong children after a cumbersome bus journey. The bus broke down and we spent an extra four hours in Soroti as the crew were fixing the problem. We ended up spending twenty five hours on the road.

I found when I arrived three of the four girls (from Loleria) had already reported at school. I reviewed their academic performances for the last term and they had all improved much more than the previous terms. I delivered the school requirements and their personal effects and the next day I proceeded to Loyoro, the home village of the fourth girl to find out what was happening to her.

I found Judith had stayed because she had lost her uncle and they were supposed to bury him that evening. I decided to wait and attend the burial ceremony. I was eager to witness if they are still practicing their crude ways of placing the dead body on top of a rock in the countryside and leaving it there, but to my surprise, this family conducted a more civilized ceremony. They even dug a tomb and after burial, covered it with concrete. This is very rare in Karamoja.

I had some time with Judith, I encouraged her to be strong and urged her to report to school as soon as possible.

The next day I was supposed to travel to Moroto, but I abandoned the trip because we received reports of a clash between army troops and karamojong warriors who had raided a village near Kotido and took away cattle. I had to wait until it was clearly safe to move and that was a day after the day I had scheduled.

Traveling from Kaabong to Kotido was relatively safe but from Kotido to Moroto was interrupted about thirty kilometers to Moroto when the taxi van ran out of fuel but the place looked secure because we were near a camp for workers of a road construction company. We waited until some guys brought fuel from Moroto and proceeded after refueling the van.

At Moroto I met with the sponsored school children, checking their reports for last term and delivering the scholastic materials and school dues to the children and head teacher respectfully. I was given an opportunity to minister to all the children who were present with a video show and the word. I showed a short clip about a bride trying out different gowns and a movie that was acted by karamojongs about a girl called Nakiru who passed through many hardships at home but managed to persevere and continued school until she became a doctor.

I preached to them that in as much as school is preparing them for their future, they also need to be prepared for eternity by fitting in the right garments as a bride does. Many accepted to prepare for eternity by inviting Christ to be their Savior and Lord, and promised to continue attending school despite the challenges involved. I also had some good time with Nechap, the lame girl, very happy to be in my company but her wheel chair broke down and she was not using it.

I am very grateful for the priceless precious sacrifices and contributions of our dear RABS partners who through their relentless and continuous dedication, these children are safely at school and financially facilitated to carry through the entire term.

Surely the blessings of the almighty God will abide with you all and especially Mama Cyndi for spearheading this cause heartedly and enthusiastically. I also thank you all for allowing me to be part of this undertaking.

(Volunteer Uganda national director/coordinator Karamoja ministry)

RABS Ugandan students’ update June 5, 2023

Dear Mama Cyndi, RABs board, fellow Ministers and our dear ministry partners, Second term facilitation mission has been carried out successfully in both districts of Moroto and Kaabong.

I first staged at Moroto and the activities there were conducted without hindrances because most of the children had already reported to school except Lokawa who was bedridden with malaria, and Nachap. I checked through each child’s report form of last term and there was considerable improvement in overall performance except for Nechap. I also had a meeting with the parents and emphasized they must help their children report to school in time and not allow them to come back home before the term ends.

I was surprised to see Nechap again crawling and upon inquiring why, I was informed that she cannot push herself in the wheel chair. During the school term other children help push her around the school, but during holidays she stays alone and therefore resorts to crawling. I went to find out the condition of the the wheel chair and found that it needed some repairs where the seat gets fixed to the rod and the wheels are missing some of the support strips.

It was a full day traveling from Moroto to Kotido and then to Kaabong. Kotido and Kaabong are among the districts in northern Karamoja were insecurity involving murders, clashes with army troops, vandalism and robbery occur most. Traveling from Kotido to Kaabong is more risky, as karamojong warriors have raided vehicles, robbed them and killed occupants in several incidences. It was near some of these dangerous spots that the taxi I was traveling in broke down. Its fan belt got torn and as thus we could not move until a new fan belt was brought and installed.

We had to wait for three hours before mechanics from Kotido would arrive and fix the car. Most vehicles refused to stop to help us, I presume because they feared we had staged the occurance to ambush and rob them. It was after two hours that a driver of an NGO vehicle stopped and allowed to help carry three of us to Kaabong leaving the others waiting for other sympathisers.

I was deterred from going to the villages the next day because there was an operation carried out by the army to recover guns from village members. It was on Friday that I was able to travel to Loleria to meet the girls.

I found out one of the girls had relocated to another village. She was sent away by her guardian because of hunger. However I was able to visit the homes of two other girls, engaged with the guardians and prepared them to report to school. The next day I had to travel to Kakamar to meet the third girl, but found out that the village women and older girls had gone to a distant village where visitors to a certain church were distributing food. Because of the security situation, I left before 6pm when they had not come back. I left her transport funds to bring her to school the next day.

By Sunday morning, they had all reported to the boarding facilities. However Regina, a primary seven candidate, was needed to clear registration for primary leaving exams(PLE) by the end of June. I used part of the boarding fees and school fees to pay for P.L.E. and promised to top up the balance in due course.

I was able to visit Catherine at her place of work and she was very happy. She is doing well and sent greetings. She is a public testimony of how RABs ministry helps such disadvantaged children to become useful and responsible members of the community.

I used the 2 am bus that passes Karenga, Kitgum, Gulu, Luwero to Kampala because I had to connect to another soul winning mission starting Monday.

I thank Run Away Brides Ministry and it’s committed partners for enabling some of the vulnerable and needy children in Karamoja to attend school without limitation or lack of basic necessities. The Lord bless you for your generosity towards this course.!

Dear beloved Mum and Rabs board U.S.

Receive greetings from Kasokoso/ Mama Cyndi’s Milling Company. With much respect, I write this short report to you, appreciating you for the great support Mama Cyndi’s milling project has been doing for the last 5 years of its operation.

The above mentioned project has so far aided the vulnerable women, especially those elderly and single mothers in the community. People/women in Kasokoso community in conjunction with the Local Council chairpersons have not remained the same as evidenced in photos below.

On the 9th of April, 2023, Easter Sunday, Mama Cyndi’s Milling project compassionately gave out 300kg of flour worth 950,000 Uganda shillings. The number was quite high as we normally do but this time around, due to escalated cost of food in Uganda, we were able to give to 60 mothers each 5 kg (11.023 pounds) of maize / corn flour. We appreciate God and Rabs once more for this great support you always render to these people of God who are in need.

With due respect, we need more of your prayers for the Mill to bring this dream to its highest potential enabling it to give compassionately to more people of our community. We not only desire to physically feed them, but to also feed them spiritually, which we witness every time the Mill reaches into their lives with the gift of flour. We look forward to the days when not only we help feed these vulnerable people, but also we can help support RABS missions throughout East Africa.

May you live longer to see more of God’s goodness in this land of the living.

The financial donation was made possible from the monthly 25 percent of Mama Cyndi’s Milling monthly net profit. Every month the Mill donates 25% of its net profits to RABS Africa for ministerial and humanitarian purposes.

I remain yours,
Pastor Milton Wanyama
RABS Africa Coordinator

November 2023 update:

This divinely designed opportunity for Edenset School to have electricity installed came following Pastor Cyndi Higgins’ 2018 visit.

With her compassionate heart to serve Christ in Africa and in holy desiring to see children in Africa receive quality education and be transformed in a Christian community, she began campaigning for funds to support bringing electricity to the school. This was no easy job because there wasn’t electricity yet brought to the entire remote village called Nabinaka, nor the region in Mazzi parish, Kamira sub county in Luwero district, Uganda. 

In 2021, the dream became a reality. 

We’d like to bring you a 2023 report showing the amazing progress our students have made because of electricity! 

I truly believe that God hears the cry of His people. When we remember the agonizing moments our students used to pass through while learning under disruptive tree shades, temporary muddy structures, and light produced by burning smoky risky candles that actually left some of our students dead when a fire broke out, we are humbled all the more and continue trusting God, praising and honoring Him as we see the Children are very happy, confident, and parents testifying for the great transformation they see at Edenset Nursery & Primary School. 

Indeed we thank God for your precious life and for using you to bless and impact our community with improved education through infrastructure, electrical lighting that is greatly supporting the learning and teaching, extra lessons, research as phones are easily charged and the students and staff are able to use the internet for learning information and more.

This is giving our school higher performance as already seen from Primary 7 mock-test results. We are trusting God for excellent performance on the National Exams this year come November. I also believe that if God accepts our prayers, a computer laboratory would increase the students performance levels even beyond the present.

The need of a boarding facility on our campus continues to bite hard on far distant learners whose parents have continued requesting a dormitory facility to reduce risks of their children walking impassable roads, dangerous sexual predators hiding in dense woods where children must walk to get to school. These travel hours on foot also causes learner exhaustion. All these challenges they face causes the tendency for dropping out of school. We continue to pray that the Lord works out a way for Edenset’s geographically disadvantaged students. 

Just a few days back one of our children we offer bursary, Nakijoba Ruth P5, came with her friend Allen also P5 and challenged me saying, “Mum, when will you ever construct for us a living room? It is so hard coming from our village, it’s far.” I told them, “Pray and God will answer. Heaven and earth and all that therein belongs to Him. 

We remain encouraged and hopeful.

Document title: The SEA project implementation report


The success of the SEA project came about as a result of a Request for proposal (RFP) by Pastor Cyndi Higgins, the founder and international director of Run Away Brides (RABS) international ministries situated in the U.S.A but with evangelical programs running in the continent of Africa. Through her ministry and service she has supported the school to access reliable electricity to which this report is in respect thereto.


Edenset primary and Nursery school, a remote school providing education to a community which according to 2002 Kamira sub county baseline survey had 0.4% of the population with ordinary level of education certificate. No wonder, the area is considered as the Karamoja of Luwero because of its deep rooted backwardness in terms of social, economic and spiritual conditions in the heart of Luwero district in Uganda. The possibility at any near future access to electricity did not exist until now. We are fully connected to the service through the support of RABS. This is a great ray of hope for the school to solve the frail sections of its efforts to reach out and sustain academic excellence.

This divinely designed opportunity comes following Pastor Cyndi Higgins compassionate heart to serve Christ in the heartland of Africa and in a holy discontent of passionately desiring to see children in Africa receive quality education as well as a Christ transformed community.

She was at the school located at a ‘small’ remote village called Nabinaka, in Mazzi parish, Kamira sub county in Luwero district, Uganda in 2018. She ecstatically preached in a RABS Conference organized by Good Samaritan Outreach International Church with, a ‘big God,’ on the homeland of the school where she left the community set free from bondage.

No sooner had she left, the government then planned to extend an electricity grid to the village which is over 30 kms away from the nearest electricity grid. Praise the Lord! Now, the light of Christ does not only get seen in the spiritual but is also manifested in the physical illuminating the dark parts of life.


What an amazing impact that has quickly come with the electricity installation program as implemented at the school! So far:

  1. There has arisen general parent and community excitement and great hope in achieving their educational objectives for their children.This has led to a start of the biggest number of the previous students approaching 400 despite Covid 19 effects yet other schools within the area are struggling with very few student enrolment.
  2. More new students have been enrolled with increased appreciation from parents, local leaders among others.
  3. There has been growth in church/chapel attendance, membership as well as Sunday school that is building a generation which will have more people appreciating Christ’s work in their lives as well as upholding moral uprightness.
  4. Three new qualified teachers from distant districts have been recruited and they have accepted to live and work with the school that needs them most which was not so before electrical installation, as they see a promising future and opportunities to further their career through research.


The project implementation activities circled around 5 classroom block, staffroom, administrative block and dormitory, the chapel/church and included acquisition of electricity license, purchase of materials, wiring, installation, and labor. Materials were purchased according to the budget and delivered on site and work begun on 21st of December, 2021 despite the interruption that came about due to the demise of Eve Clive’s father the late Nsereko Edward on the 22nd /12/2021. 

The contractors engaged in the activities were from a company known as Billy electricals LTD from Kampala.

The challenge and future Prospects

Because the five semi-finished permanent classrooms that the school has are unable to provide learning facility enough for children from Nursery to grade 7, the school with the little savings from school fees paid, raised a 4 classroom block to foundation level in August 2021. From here well-wishers, Mrs. Harriet & Joseph Sserwadda came in and supported with the building to wall plate level. However, with electrical installation there has been increased enrolment that created a need that now urgently requires completion of the building otherwise learning of the children is at stake. Therefore, we long for your prayers and still believing God for phased completion starting with roofing that has been estimated at a budget of 18,305,000 UGX ($5,720.00 USD) and soon thereafter do electrical installation estimated at 2,107,000 UGX ($658.00 USD).

Warm greetings RABS & Mummy Cyndi

I am grateful to God for enabling me to travel and conduct RABS’ ministry activities in Karamoja Region in Kaabong and Moroto districts. I was able to pay the 15 student’s fees and buy their uniforms and provide their scholastic material funds and pay for their daily food and care expenses. I thank RABS for the prayers and support rendered. Every mission has its unique challenges and experiences, but God abides with us through all.

I thank God for the educational funds and village treatment funds I received from RABS USA. I came to realize everywhere you go in Karamoja, they are battling with scabies, jiggers, bed bugs and rats and hunger. I am perplexed beyond reason at the level of infestation and starvation they are suffering. This nature and magnitude of infestation necessitates the spraying of all households before even administering treatment to the individuals. I had to buy two medium sprayers for the task. I also managed to acquire some medication for scabies and some for jiggers plus some rodenticide. Since their huts are built close to one another, and a good number of them already suffering from these communicable problems. I needed to conduct the spraying and treatment operation in the entire villages, but I could not.

First, I had limited medication and it could only be applied to a few people and just enough spray for a few huts. Secondly, the spraying required the huts be first entirely dampened before spraying and those being treated to first bathe before applying the medication to their bodies. However, it is so hot and dry in these villages that folks can spend days even weeks without bathing. Water is very scarce. Thirdly, I had no food to give them while I was conducting the operation, which means they could not leave the compound and scavenge for their food, because it was needful for all of them to be fully involved especially the first two days. Finally, I could not afford an interpreter and alone it was extremely hard explaining and engaging with the villagers. I had to cancel the treatment program in the three Loleria villages in Kaabong district. Because needs were so profound, I had to decide who to treat and who not to. Loleria villages in Kaabong District were my intended target for this initial treatment program. Their entire camps must be treated due to the severity of the infestation. Due to my limited supplies, I decided to take the program to Moroto district in Aworob and Kambizi villages.

In Aworob village I was helped by Anna, the fellowship leader there and in Kambizi village, Pastor Okwi and a Village Health Trainee helped me.  I decided to select only the elderly and the very-young who were adversely affected. The rest will be worked on in subsequent operations. Here I had to buy water for the people to bathe. The VHT helped in bathing the children. The photos show the few huts I could spray and the few people I could treat with the medicine. I wish I could have done more, but I am grateful to RABS for enabling this first phase. In Aworob, which is along Moroto-Kitale Road, I had to acquire soldiers from a nearby barracks for security. These areas still have tribal clashes and cattle raids using guns, spears, and arrows and some lives have been lost. I had to pay a fee to get three armed personnel to cover us. Some of the increased violence is due to the starvation conditions. Before the mission was over, my funds were gone. I had to call my wife, Lydia, to send me transport money to get back home.

We cannot treat all five villages now, but we can treat people, huts, and grounds in the Loleria Camps, Kolmeo, Nakatapan, and Mouledu tightknit neighborhoods greatly infected. There are between five and six hundred people including children in these 3 villages. A little less than four hundred are affected by one or more of these ailments. The budget is missing the cost of beans and rice, but greatly needed (costing $260.00 USD).

Dear Beloved:

            I am sharing this need with you, because in the past you have helped Run Away Brides International Ministries care for these five Remote Villages of Karamoja Region, the desolate area of Northern Uganda.  RABS adopted these villages in late 2018. We began by helping students complete their educations. We now have fifteen full time students back in school. Your gifts helped start farming projects and now the villages have the tools they need for seasonal planting and harvesting. You have helped us in protecting against elephants raiding their gardens and crops. Your donations have allowed us to carry food and water into these villages and camps when even The Red Cross could not make it in because of flooding, washed out roads, and bridges. Now, Beloved, they are facing these new heartbreaking conditions. Please if you can help us with any amount in 2021, we would be incredibly grateful. Because of Covid-19, we did not ask for help in 2020, but now we need to help these that seemingly have been overlooked during the pressure of the pandemic by their government and large international ministries.

Thank you and God Bless you,

Our RABS National Directors and RABS Team Leaders of Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, some accompanied by RABS Africa Coordinator, Pastor Milton Wanyama, entered new territories carrying the Message of Hope in Jesus. Along with them they delivered food, school supplies, education tuitions, farming tools and seeds, clothes and shoes, Bibles and Christian books, tracts, and children’s literature. Most importantly, they took in their love, hugs, encouragement and smiles–Truly, these were all ‘Mission’s of Hope.’

REFUGEE CAMP IN KENYA: Bishop Wilfred Barasa, RABS Kenya National Director accompanied by Pastor Milton Wanyama, RABS Africa Coordinator took the RABS Message to Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. Established in 1992, Kakuma camp is located in Northwestern Kenya. It’s currently the world’s largest refugee camp, hosting over 184,000 people. Kakuma is co-managed by Kenya’s Department of Refugee Affairs, and the UNHCR.

It’s reported that 400 churches are within the confines of the camp. RABS three-day-conference was attended by 70 of the camp’s pastors and thousands of refugees attended the open-air-‘camp-wide-crusade held nightly and sponsored and organized by an American mission’s ministry from Albany Oregon USA, “Worldwide Outreach,”  but invited RABS Bishop Wilfred and Pastor Milton to preach and help with the ‘salvation-call and prayers.’ Many received Jesus as Savior throughout the nightly crusades and all of the pastors attending the RABS Conference ‘came back into an intimate loving relationship with Jesus.’ Hopelessness and hardships such as these men and women of God endure under such harsh environments alongside their fellow refugees from several nations in time breaks the sweet fellowship one has with Jesus.

Once these pastors were refreshed with the blessed Hope of Jesus in their lives, they readily learned how to go out and evangelize other fallen-away Christians (runaway brides) who themselves had wandered away from Jesus mostly because of the harsh reality of their very abnormal living conditions as refugees displaced from their own nations due to war, political unrest, and violence.

REMOTE VILLAGES IN THE KARAMOJA REGION, UGANDA:  Pastor Denis Muwanguzi, RABS Uganda National Director is RABS and BFG’S leader in the “5 Remote Village Project.” Alongside of Pastor Denis in this undertaking is Rev. Eva Clive Nansereko, RABS Uganda Associate-National Director and RABS East Africa Women’s Director. They began this work alone in early 2017 and later asked RABS in 2018 if we could join hands with them. RABS recently separating from BFG Fellowship Ministries, as their outreach-mission’s ministry, and registering as its own non-profit 501(c) (3) organization had reservations to more financial obligations in East Africa.

Therefore, the  RABS Board of Directors met with BFG Fellowship Ministries leaders and suggested a co-partnership in the “5 Remote Village Project.” It was an unanimous “Yes” from the BFG leaders and congregation to partner with RABS International Ministries for this greatly needed service.  Together we are:

  • Providing primary and secondary education for boys and girls in remote villages where otherwise they would not receive basic educations. We are paying school fees for students that otherwise could not attend the government school. In the Loleria camps where education is provided for via Red Cross’ assistance, due to no governmental schools, we are helping with school supplies for both students and the ‘camp’s teacher.’  
  • In response to the least educated population in the rural wilderness areas of Karamoja Region, Uganda; the girls, we are providing the funding for female adolescents from the five remote villages to attend two-year-programs at Vocational Boarding Schools in Uganda. At the end of the program, they will return to their villages with a money-making trade to help support themselves and their extended families.
  • Under Pastor Denis’ leadership, we have established and he is now monitoring through quarterly visits, the village farming projects. We provided the seeds and the farming tools and proper farming education including help in preventing monkeys and elephants from destroying their crops.
  •  BFG Fellowship Ministries is a “Mission’s Church,” and has now planted churches in the villages that did not have a church. BFG and RABS has provided Bibles and Christian educational materials in the Karamojong language and in English to disciple the newly placed leadership and the saints in each remote village.

RURAL DISTRICTS IN TANZANIA AND UGANDA:  We sent national missionaries into Tanzania and for the first time we had pastors from all over Tanzania attending one of our RABS Conferences. Evangelist Gervas  Mwanyila our RABS Tanzania National Director wrote to us:

“We had a five-day conference and crusades every evening which was organized by National RABS Director; Evangelist Gervas Mwanyila and the RABS Tanzania team. The conference and crusade were conducted at Kyela border of Tanzania and Malawi. We had different speakers including RABS African Coordinator Pastor Milton Wanyama.  In these five days from July 3rd to the 7th of conference and crusade in Kyela we witnessed many Run Away Brides reconciling and confessing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  A total of 40 unsaved people gave their lives to Christ, and hundreds of Christians were reconciled back to Jesus at the crusades and the conference. We also received for RABS a donation of Bibles from the Gideon organization that we later distributed to the new converts who gave their lives to Christ. Additionally, we also gave RABS Bible Study books to the conference pastors and church leaders.


CENTRAL UGANDA: From June to October 1st, 2019, RABS has been hosted in several RABS conferences and crusades throughout Central Uganda.  Apostle Moses Bwire, RABS East Africa Interpreter has conducted numerous RABS conferences as well as Pastor Tanas RABS Busia District Leader, Kampala RABS Youth Leader, James Ouma, RABS International Gospel Music Manager, Evangelist Moko,  RABS Kigumba Region Leader, Pastor Nsubuga John, RABS Uganda National Director, Pastor Denis, and RABS Uganda Associate-Director, Rev. Eva Clive, and many more. Many RABS trained teachers move around and speak into individual churches and we only hear about it when they let Pastor Milton know of the RABS movements. Glory to God!

Bishop Wilfred of Kenya told me, “Mama, there is no place in Kenya that I go, that RABS has not been heard of–it is spreading like a quiet fire throughout Kenya, surely God is at work.” For this is not the work of men and women but the work of the Holy Spirit.

RWANDA RABS NEWS–PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYER: Since March of 2018 when the Rwandan government shut down hundreds and hundreds of churches citing they were closed due to building and noise violations, RABS has not been able to effectively train pastors and leaders and Christians on how to evangelize runaway brides of Christ. We are upholding all of Rwandans in our prayers; as we fear these continually closed out Christians from public worship, may indeed become a runaway brides of Christ crisis in Rwanda.





OUR RABS MISSIONARY PASTORS DENIS AND EVA CLIVE AND CHRISTINA are returning in May 2019 to 2 of the villages to bring the children’s school supplies and fees for the upcoming new-school-period. Then in late June and into July they will spend almost one  month in all 5 villages in Karamoja Region–some of the most difficult areas to travel because of lack of road systems and other dangers wild animals and bewildered rustlers–Pray for their safety and their families as they go onto the RABS mission field. We need your help and you can donate today specifically for the children of these 5 villages of Karamajo Region, Uganda.
