Missions Prayer Focus: Pearl Ministries

Inform & Inspire: Pearl Ministries partners with individuals, families and churches to help orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, through gospel-centered, holistic development of family and community in partnership with indigenous ministries and churches.

Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, in finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had a bought it.” Matt. 13:45-46

Winston Churchill described Uganda as the “pearl of Africa.”  With it’s lush landscapes and natural beauty, it is easy to see why.  Uganda is a blessed land, but it also a broken one.  Colonialism, war, AIDS and poverty have taken their tole on the small East African nation.  The population of Uganda is now predominantly made up of children.  Over three million of those children are total orphans.

Motivated by the grace and compassion of Jesus Christ, Pearl Ministries works alongside Ugandans to address the crisis facing Uganda’s orphans and vulnerable children.  We sponsor programs of physical care, spiritual nurturing, education and vocational training.  (Read more about our plan.)

We ultimately believe that the most effective way to care for these children is by impacting and transforming their communities.  Our heart is for the nation of Uganda.  We want the children of Uganda to inherit a healthy, hopeful future.  This desire is constantly leading us toward efforts that give present relief to the children of Uganda, but also those that enrich their communities for a stronger tomorrow.

Engage: Prayers are especially needed at this time for Scott Laslo’s friend and the director of ROJM, Theophilus Kamara. He has been having health complication these past few years, mostly heart problems (due to a variety of factors: overweight, poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, over working, etc.). He had a few minor cardiac arrests last year and earlier this year and has been diagnosed with 2 and 1/2 blockages in his arteries. He need angioplasty and was scheduled to travel to India this year, May, a month ago, but it keeps getting pushed back.

There is always need for continued prayer for the Primary School: students, teachers, admin and staff. Our older children are doing well, progressing in higher education and vocational training, but prayers are always needed generally and that they would stay active in church and in their faith in Jesus Christ.

Uganda just had presidential elections and things have been controlled, but tensions are high with the opposing political parties and in areas of the country, mostly urban, which affects our friends and partners at Ranch on Jesus.

The board of Pearl Ministries postponed a large capital campaign earlier this year so that we could send him money to help with his surgery and family while he is away. We could use prayer for wisdom and guidance on when to open up the discussion for and launch that campaign again.
