Vanensio & Eddy bamwitirebye  -  uganda

Vanensio Bamwitirebye is the pastor of Bundibugyo Community Worship Centre in the Bundibugyo district, a region on the border of Uganda and  DR Congo devastated by fighting and HIV/AIDS that left many people displaced, widowed and orphaned.   After training and teaching at Westminster Theological College with Emma Kiwanuka, God gave Vanensio a burden to plant a church among the Bundibugyo displaced people. He shared the vision to a number of leaders including Geoffrey, Smith, Robert, Jacob and Deo. After time of prayer and fasting they planted the church in 2002. The church Vanensio now pastors is one of the 15 churches planted in their district.  God has allowed the church to minister and teach in Hospitals, Jails (prisons), to the nearby pygmies, and to the poor and afflicted of Bundibugyo.  The ministry is also involved in the training of local ministers to faithfully preach the gospel and make disciples.  

There are many diseases that are particularly prevalent in this region of Uganda such as Cholera; Ebola and Malaria. In response, they opened a Malaria clinic to serve the community. Please pray for the great outreach of this evangelical ministry as they sponsor Youth Camps; Evangelism outreach and Marriage and Spiritual Conferences within their churches.  His wife Eddy helps raise their seven biological children and more than eight orphans.

Recent prayer requests from 2019 include:  Prayers that the Lord may open a financial way to build Grace Community Worship Centre that I pastor and planted at the site where the famous EVIL tree was standing.  The need to buy a piece of land and put a temporary structure at the most newly planted church at Nyakakindo village called Nyakakindo Community Worship Centre in Bundibugyo.  And, for God to heal my family, mostly Victor and Frank who are always sick.
