Christian Adventure Ministry- Lomilo
God's love endures forever (Ps.118:1) This is the message of Hope we bring through our words and lives, to the people of Uganda. We serve to meet practical needs (The great commandments) and spiritual needs (The great commission), discipling new believers into the great community. During this COVID-19 Pandemic we have remained in Uganda to help the villagers face this Giant. Please pray for us!
Our biggest need right now is number 3 below, to provide food and seeds to those villagers that are badly affected by the Corona LockDown.
Waffle and Val serve as missionaries in Uganda with the Karamojong, Teso and Sebei people, together with a local Christian Non-Profit called CLIDE Consultancy (Community Livestock Integrated Development Consultancy). They use community development, livestock and veterinary trainings, and educational scholarships to develop relationships in these tribal communities, which then allows them opportunities to share the hope that is within them: the good news of Jesus Christ. This shows God’s love practically, drawing people into His presence to also love and serve Him. Their ministries are multi-faceted and wholistic including.
- Livestock health and husbandry training for semi-nomadic herders
- Child Sponsorship of orphans and vulnerable children who have been decimated by tribal warfare, HIV/AIDS and drought or famine.
- Famine Relief for the Vulnerable and Seeds for the Strong during this time of Corona Pandemic. Some people are desperate for food. Other people have no work during Corona Lockdown, so they are eating the seeds that they would have normally planted. If we provide seeds, those who have lost their livelihood during the lockdown will be able to provide food for their families this year.
- Peace building with tribal elders and warriors, with livelihood enhancement for this warring tribe who has been rustling cattle for the last 30 years.
- Herbal veterinary medicine development to bring a sustainable supply of indigenous medicines into the hands of the local communities and to provide an income generating source for the traditional healers (many who were former witchdoctors).
- Discipleship training using Chronological Bible Storying for semi-literate communities using oral Bible learning, spiritual songs and dramas.
- Pastoral training for indigenous spiritual leaders.
People living in spiritual darkness often find themselves in abject poverty. Hopelessness and helplessness pervade the thoughts of those without the true knowledge of God and Christ. By working with local communities to empower their people through an integrated, wholistic ministry, we strive to bring wholeness to the body, soul, spirit and mind. Our wholistic approach provides economic opportunity and spiritual growth through evangelism and discipleship, livestock and agricultural initiatives, child sponsorships, peace building with tribal warriors, herbal medicine research and development, and pastoral training.
We love Jesus and we cannot resist sharing the hope and love we have in Him! He chose us through His grace and amazingly loves us and has appointed us to serve. Waffle Lomilo attended Multnomah Bible College and has been working in multiple ministry levels, training youth, inspiring pastors and conducting many short term missions around the world. Dr. Val Lomilo is a veterinary missionary with 25 years of experience on the mission field, working with the poor and empowering them to reach new heights and spiritual depths.
God, through His Spirit, calls us to obedience to the calling that is within us, from deep within our souls, pressing forward to reach people for Christ while there is still time. The average life span for men in Karamoja is 49 yrs old, 54 for women. Many children die young. Satan is doing all he can do to take as much territory as possible, but God is, at this moment, is moving with power and grace across this land. We can feel His urging at this crucial time to press on with courage and determination.
This is our CLIDE Team! We work with them in all of these ministries. God is Great!
