Praying for Our Primary 7 Students
Please be joining us in prayer this weekend for our sons and daughters in the Primary 7 class!
Every year, students in Primary 7 all across Uganda must take a national test called the “Primary Leaving Exam.” Primary 7 is equivalent to 6th grade in America, or the last year of primary school in the UK. The results of the PLE determine on a national level whether or not students can go on to secondary school. At…Learn More
EYO Trip Report
It may not seem like football, mud, the Gospel, VBS, and gardening all have much to do with one another. But for Emmanuel Youth Outreach (NHU’s youth ministry), each of these tends to play a part in their missions trips.
This year’s main outreach took 26 EYO members, mostly current and past NHU sons and daughters, to the area around Lyantonde, several hours away from Kasana Children’s Centre. The trip ran from August 29 to…Learn More

A Life Lived Well
The New Hope family lost a mother on Sept. 5, as Aunt Ketty finished her fight with cancer. Jesus came and healed His daughter by taking her home. At a service in front of her home a few hours later, Ketty was remembered for the confidence and peace she had throughout the trials of the past year and a half. The following Monday, her body was laid to rest in her home area several hours away…Learn More
Term 3 Begins!
The sound of benches scraping on pavement followed by the singing of young voices broke through the normal noises this morning, indicating that life had returned to the school grounds which had sat mostly quiet and empty during the three-week term holiday.
Today marked the beginning of the third and last term for the Ugandan school year at New Hope Uganda. At our primary school, Uncle Simon (the headmaster) led the morning assembly. He reminded…Learn More

Couple Uses God’s Gifts to Help Support Cabins for Kids
Since starting with New Hope Uganda Ministries in the North American office, I have been humbled by the generosity of so many. I have a unique job because I see every single donation that comes to the ministry. While I work in the North American office half way across the world from where New Hope Uganda (NHU) is located, I get to see what the missionaries don’t get to see while they’re on the ground. …Learn More

A Week of Family Fun
Holiday. Three weeks. Rest? Not so much.
In David Family we had gardens to weed. The rains had started around mid-term so we planted. The crops flourished as the rains continued, but so did the weeds.
Once the first term ended the kids weren’t waking before dawn for school, but they were still up early every morning with hoes raised high then aimed expertly at invading roots. Finally, the gardens were declared clean and the reward came.
