In 2004 I approached my pastor and asked him if we could use the church premises to meet with the street children because a growing number of them were responding to our outreach events. We sought a place where we could do more than just give them handouts. Hearing their heartbreaking stories and the pain of life on the streets was a defining moment in my life. For me it was imperative we had to do more than give them food and encouragement.
Since then Calvary Chapel Kampala has gone above and beyond and certainly been more than a location for Frontline. The church has offered both material and spiritual support which has enabled our program to grow over the years. We praise God for visiting teams from Calvary Chapel in the USA, Crosslinks Smile teams, and other friends and individuals who continue to return to use on short term missions. Frontline wouldn’t be what it is today without all your continued support.
In the mean time, we will continue with a Drop-in center, Outreaches, the Discipleship House, and in the near future, crucial skills training so as to equip the older boys to make a living on their own.
It warms my heart to know and experience the Love of God towards street children in Kampala, and I am confident that in the years to come we shall continue to point these children to Jesus who will work in them and through them until He calls them to their real home.
