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.

2024 A YEAR TO STRETCH FORWARD

“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.

ELECTRICITY ARRIVES AT EDENSET PRIMARY AND NURSERY SCHOOL, Luwero district, Uganda,

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

INTRODUCTION

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.

BACKGROUND

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.

IMPACT / OUTCOMES OF THE ELECTRICITY INSTALLATION

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.

HIGH LIGHTS OF IMPLEMENTATION ACTIVITIES IN PICTORIAL REPRESENTATION FOR THE SEA PROJECT

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.

THERE IS MUCH MORE WORK TO DO

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).

RABS’ MINISTRIES REACHED REFUGEE CAMPS, REMOTE VILLAGES, AND RURAL DISTRICTS

KENYA–REFUGEE CAMP

UGANDA–REMOTE VILLAGES

TANZANIA–RURAL DISTRICTS

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.

REPORT OF RAB From Kyela TANZANIA

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.

 

 

 

NO SCHOOL–NO EDUCATION–NO CHANCE “THEY NEED YOU”

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.

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.

We had to change the mission this  trip as Kaabong District had to be put on hold. We started RABS fellowships in three village in Kaabong. 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.

DECEMBER 2018 RABS UGANDA MISSION LED BY APOSTLE DENIS AND REV. EVE CLIVE

RABS MISSIONS IN UGANDA

LED BY APOSTLE DENIS PLKW MUWANGUZI

AND REV. EVE CLIVE NANSEREKO

December 2, 2018

Good morning mummy. We have just set off from the bus park. Divine strength, health and energy is ours in Christ Jesus name!! Mama Eve a little weak with flu and cough but braving on. Amen we have reached at around 7:30pm. The bus broke down along and mechanics fixed it in less than an hour. We are resting till tomorrow then go deep in the villages.

12/3/2018 We are teamed up with a sister who mobilized for most of the second-hand-clothes. We have four sacks ready for distribution but we are short of books and pens for the children who cannot attend school because they lack such. We only have seven dozen sets. We will be promoted to cut down on the books given to each child.  

12/6/2018 Shalom with Love, mummy. Thank you for your prayers. We are going on well but my phone has jammed and I have lost most of the good photos and videos I had saved. We traveled well but the bus had a breakdown when we were remaining with about 120km to reach Kaabong town. We set off at 1am and reached 7:20pm. It’s a journey of close to 800km. With many bus stop overs.  On Tuesday we went to the furthest center, close to 110km from town. Imagine one of the motorcycles we had hired developed a flat tire in the middle of the wilderness. The three of us had to mount one motorbike while the rest carried luggage. We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic welcome we received. We preached, and showed the Jesus film. By night we could not move because wild elephants and zebras cross the road late in the evening towards Kidepo national Park. We had to sleep in open walled shelter. But even after we retired, village folks continued praising God with dancing up to midnight. Imagine praising in the open night without electricity, without a lantern or lamp, in the coldness. You couldn’t miss the joy. 

The men guarded us with bows and arrows while we slept. The next morning, we ministered and 27 people gave their lives to Christ. We encouraged them to continue meeting and they appointed a member by the names of Simon to lead them in fellowshipping. We then moved to the next village camp and we ministered to children and adults. We prepared porridge and served both villages there after gave out clothes. These members also agreed to start fellowshipping and appointed their leader. It was pure revival as men women and children were taking a cup of porridge while receiving a gift of cloth. If all churches could experience that joy.

Today, we went to another subcounty. There are times, localities, situations that need the feet of an apostle and the declaration of a prophet for changes to be manifested. We visited this community last year and it was in a sorry unredeemable state. Around 12 people received salvation and agreed to continue fellowshipping. A few times mama Eve could send transport for a minister from the town church to go and encourage these saints. But most times we failed to send transport because we could not communicate with them because they had no phones. We prayed and declared the land for Jesus. We were amazed today Thursday to find a permanent church has been constructed and most of the people who got converted are active in church. Mama Eve encouraged the community members to cultivate a relationship with God gave them a testimony of herself. We also ministered to children and gave out clothes mainly to women because they could not cover all of them. We identified some children who are not attending school because of books and pencils and we are going to mobilize books to give them by the beginning of next term.

We left that place this evening much encouraged by church members. At 2am we are going to board a bus to another district of Kotido and reach out to two communities there and the n connect to Moroto district. We appointed a brother by the name of Obadia to become the RABS district coordinator of Kaabong district. He has been very instrumental in organizing our transportation, welfare, translating and visiting the villages we ministered to after we had gone.

I yearned to keep you updated daily but there was no network and internet, besides we were so busy and involved from the onset to the end. I got this as we are waiting for the bus to start off the journey. Mama Eve is sending her greetings to all of you.

12/9/2018 Shalom with Sunday greetings mummy. I secured some photos of the first three days from the sister we went with. We then went to Kotido and I went to another village and delivered this half sack of clothes to one of the church members. We did not take part in the distribution here because we wanted to be in time for the taxi that would take us to Moroto district.

This morning we attended service in the church of our host pastor.  After we both ministered a man who appeared to be a lunatic gave his life to Christ. To our amazement this guy corrected people who were translating. He was speaking sense. He stayed longer and we shared a meal conversing with him. This church was so stirred up and announced three days of prayer and fasting starting tomorrow. In the evening we are going to visit another village

I want to mobilize for books, pens and pencils and take them at the start of first term in February. The lady at far right got saved during our last mission last year and is now active in church. We spent Friday travelling to Moroto district. On Saturday we first went to a school where we were to distribute the books and some clothes we had brought.

In the evening we went to a distant village and we were warmly welcomed. This village has nine manyattas with a population of more than four hundred people. Thanks to God, the church meets under a tree. A manyatta is a collection of families staying closely together in a homestead of at least 20 huts enclosed with wooden branches for security.

Tomorrow we are going to another remote village so bound by demonic powers.  The ruling spirits in that are said to manifest in form of a flying and talking serpent, a woman with one breast. A sister who has just got a hut to reside in while in that place has reported appearance of a skeleton like figure to her children while alone at home. Saturday night the same appeared to her on the way home with her children but this time she rebuked it and it disappeared.

This sister Evelyn is going to lead RABS and Barefoot Garden Fellowships in this mountainous community. The Lord has particularly confirmed to this lady and the church leaders that He wants to save this community and that these ministers had tarried long without reaching out to the village.

The whole of Karamoja has experienced a long day season. Everywhere we went it was too dry but as soon as we concluded today’s church service, it started raining. PRAISE THE LORD!

12/16/2018 Shalom and Calvary greetings mummy. I bless the mercies of the Lord who enabled us conclude Karamoja mission well on Friday. In My last communication we were going to our last village which was spiritually challenging.

We thank you and the entire RABS and Barefoot Garden fellowship family who prayed for us mightily and effectively. Indeed, we were like scouts and we purposed not to preach but devote ourselves entirely to prayer in spiritual warfare. As we were continuing, members of this village came by themselves and asked to join us. We welcomed them and two of them gave their lives to Christ as we were concluding. We didn’t get any direct attack except the motorcycle that was taking us developed mechanical problems and we survived falling off twice as we were going. After prayers the motorcycle could not take us back. We walked the entire eight-kilometers journey back except mummy Eve and the host pastor who were picked halfway through the journey. Two children of the lady who was confirmed by the Holy Spirit to lead that fellowship developed serious diarrhea that day but got healed by the close of the day. AMEN!

It’s amazing when you let the Holy Spirit have his way. One lady who was praying with us all through the three days gave us testimony about her son who is a drug addict, unruly and one time assaulted her. The boy always abused her and harassed her tenants. She found the boy at home after prayers and for the first time he kept quiet and listened to her mother as she counselled her. He even fetched water for her.

Another elder had a mental problem but felt much relieved after two days of prayer. This same man offered to get one day of the week and visit the first village and teach the children some basic English and arithmetic. The children in this village don’t have a school at all. He agreed to volunteer if we could get him a cheap chalk-board, box of chalk, then books and pencils/pens for the children. We traveled throughout the night and reached Kampala in the morning of Friday, December 14, 2018. Upon arriving at home, I found my Papa in a sorry state. He was very weak, dizzy, with no appetite and having some cough. I am trying to help him be stable. He needs much of my time, care and patience but God is faithful.

I am encouraged by the testimony in all the centers and villages we visited in Kaabong, Kotido and Moroto districts. We appointed RABs coordinator in Kaabong district and Moroto district. We also started fellowships in Loleria A and Loleria B of Kaabong district plus Aworob and Musas villages of Moroto district. The director of Nawanatau primary School invited us to start monthly fellowship in the school.

We thank God for the facilitation but most importantly the prayer and parental cover extended to us throughout the entire mission from mummy Cyndi and the entire RABS family. I am set to mobilize for scholastic materials specifically for the village children in which we started fellowships to be availed to them by the beginning of first term next year in February 2019.

Much grateful for Mama Cyndi, Pastor Milton, and the entire RABS family.

Denis Plkw Muwanguzi and Rev. Eve Clive Nansereko

You can help send these children to school by donating for the purchase of pencils, pens, and text books: Apostle Denis said: “I want to mobilize for books, pens and pencils and take them at the start of first term in February 2019.” Before you view the photo gallery below, please consider donating to help educate these children in remote areas. Education is FREE but they must come to every term with their own pencils, pens, and current text books or they are denied educations. 

THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU

God Bless you and thank you for being a part of RABS International Ministries and Mama Cyndi’s Milling Project in Uganda, East Africa.

It begins with buying and clearing the plot, the construction from the stone foundation up to the iron-sheet roof and everything in between to the first days of milling which was October 19, 2018 at Mama Cyndi’s Milling Project.

In a year’s time, I have personally invested several thousands of US dollars and I PRAISE THE LORD because it is all His. I paid my house off in November 2016 and I had big financial plans to do some major renovations to my house. I continued putting the monthly mortgage amount into my savings account believing that in the Spring of 2017, I would start the necessary structural updates and renovations. However, in February 2017, the Lord told me it was not my money to spend and that it was Kingdom money. Once the mill project got underway in September 2017, I knew then it was what the Lord had intended for the money I had been saving.

I struggled financially because the Mill cost much more than what I had saved and adding to that the monthly house payment as we progressed was still not enough to complete the project. However, I want to testify that the Lord saw me through it financially, physically, and spiritually. It was draining at times because of the problems there on the site and some of subcontractors cheated us and did bad work along with many costly things that we did not expect.

Zone 1 where the Mill is located and like Zones 2, 3, and 4 is very overpopulated with low wage-earners. Where we built the area has been overtaken by non-Christian groups and witchcraft. Individuals and shop keepers travel far to get their corn milled or to purchase Maize Flour and it’s very costly. The Community Leaders have shown us favor and they continue to express their happiness and gratitude in the Mill being built there. We are all praying it brings more needed businesses to the area and we will see new jobs come into these poor neighborhoods. The Community Leaders asked to meet with me and they approved a Christian Dedication Service for the Mill. On February 21, 2018 we came together with the neighbors and the community leaders and the Church family for a great dedication celebration.

2019 Milling Project Update

 

February 27, 2019 MAMA CYNDI’S MILLING PROJECT UPDATE

Although we went into full production on October 19, 2018 milling, we have had challenges and set-backs that slowed down our production. However, I am glad to report as of now the Mill is operating well. Our 2019 sales are excellent in spite of the increased cost (doubled) in corn by the ton. I was so happy to visit the Mill in January 2019 when I was in Uganda for the Annual RABS International Conference. I was accompanied by all of our National Directors and our RABS International Team and many visiting RABS leaders from all of the nations RABS is currently ministering in. We had many pastors from Uganda visit the Mill and everyone was so delighted to see the production and have a hand at hulling and milling with the help of the Mill’s professional millers.

The great increase in the corn cost is the result of a high-yield harvest in 2018 that saturated the market and many international traders bought much of the corn. In those areas where there are two and near the equator three annual harvests the lack of the latter year’s rain left the quality and quantity of marketable product at a very low production so demand and lack of supply has driven the prices to critical highs.

However, we have not lost hope, for we know the Lord is on our side and He is in full control of the weather conditions. We are believing Him and trusting for a another high yield this late Spring in particular areas and then again in the Autumn Harvest when much of Uganda soil is producing high-quality corn in vast amounts.

We welcome your prayers and your financial support to prevent a loss in the product as we are committed to helping the most vulnerable in the community and in those in various places we are ministering in–to learn more about that read the latest report from Pastor Denis and Rev. Eva Clive “RABS PASTORS RETURN…”

Thank you and God Bless you;

Pastor Cyndi Higgins

 

August 30, 2018, MAMA CYNDI’S MILLING PROJECT UPDATE

We have been preparing for the first day of operations at the Milling Project in Kiereka Kasokoso, Uganda. All electricity and special electrical devices and services for milling is completed.

All the water hook-ups completed and we have now served the community with clean and purified water for 2 months at a very low cost compared to the other water sellers in the community! The water sales will help pay the Mill’s Utility bills.

Our first load of corn, 9 tons, has been delivered. The final touches are being completed on the Mill’s machinery and will be installed on my, Pastor Cyndi’s,  61st Birthday (September 1st).  No better gift could I have asked our Heavenly Father for! Praise His holy name!  

Please join us in thanking the Lord of lord’s and King of kings our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus for His love and mercy He has extended through His grace in this kingdom assignment! No man or woman or ministry could have accomplished this if it had not been for God’s constant provision and protection!

We give Him all the glory and all the honor! For surely this is the manifestation of His unfailing love and we are forever grateful to Him! There has been no ministry funds used for this Milling Project, every expense has been literally provided by the Grace of Our Lord

Love and Blessings

Pastor Cyndi Higgins
