Nikki is Going to Uganda!

Being actively engaged in furthering the kingdom of God is the greatest privilege ever! These past few years, the Lord has given me a ‘front row seat’ of how He is moving throughout this country and across the nations. Whether it’s assisting our SGWM missionaries or going on a short-term missions trip, there are endless opportunities that the Lord has laid before me, and I am so very thankful. During this time, I have also been anticipating the day that I can go from watching what the Lord is doing across the nations to engaging in furthering His kingdom in those places. Well, the wait is over!

I am so excited to announce that the Lord has opened up the door for me to spend an entire month in Uganda this upcoming August! This trip will consist of ministry in two locations with two different teams but one primary purpose: to bring glory to the Lord!

The first part of my journey, I will travel to Midigo, a 95% Muslim district located in Northern Uganda.

 

I will serve alongside a short-term missions team at Calvary Chapel Midigo and with Promise Child. Promise Child is an international child sponsorship program that brings both hope and the Gospel to children by meeting their most practical needs. I will have an opportunity to share the Gospel and pray over kids as I interview them and update their profile cards for their Promise Child sponsors. I will also engage in various outreaches the team does throughout that time amongst that district. No words can describe how excited I am to do ministry in Midigo, look upon the precious faces of the children, and take part in communicating their stories to their sponsors.

During the last part of my trip, I will travel south to Kampala, the capital city of Uganda and visit my fellow SGWM missionaries, the Kanyike family.

 

As I have worked behind the scenes as an administrative assistant for SGWM, I have watched how the Lord has moved mightily through the Kanyike family and their church plant, Arise Christian Fellowship. My heart longed to see the work in person and to come alongside the Kanyike’s in any aspect of ministry. The Lord knew my heart’s desires! I will be spending two weeks with them, gleaning from their experiences as they have faithfully served the Lord in Kampala.

This incredible opportunity is both exciting and surreal, but I know it is the Lord who is directing my steps. I look forward to sharing more about how He led me and how this trip even came about! For now, I greatly covet your prayers!

For His Name’s Sake!
