The vision is now clear and our ministries very actively underway at DCF Uganda. The wood shop hums with daily activities.

More rabbits and more hutches are … Continue reading "Ready for Prayer"
Meet Emmanuel and see the DCF Woodworking Shop in action, as it exists in May of 2021! To say we were amazed when Emmanuel sent this first video of the shop would be a complete understatement!

As a church, we still have a lot of work that God is sending us to accomplish. Our approach at DCF involves training for self sustenance.
Now, I am so pleased to say that the ladies of DCF Uganda have a sewing machine! It is a thing of service and beauty, a joy, a wonder!

We each look at this life and eternal life from different windows so we see different things. Those three visions are different than yours. … Continue reading "Clear Vision"
Some people have asked, “How much money do I have to give to really help?” The short answer is, “None, but we covet prayer in large denominations.” DCF Uganda uses every nickel we can send to keep the wolves from the door and train Ugandan citizens in a skill in order to earn an income. … Continue reading "An Idea About Donations"
