Arise Discipleship Center
– Providing Stability in the Storm
The Elkins family has been serving in Arua, Uganda since January 2015 as His Voice Global missionaries. Mike is currently seconded to Aim Air as the Uganda Program Manager and Megan is our Care Coordinator helping develop customized discipleship programs for many of those we serve.
Uganda has become a springboard for many of our South Sudanese young men and women. The education systems of South Sudan are still remote and developing throughout the country, so Uganda has become a part of our educational pipeline.
In 2016 it became possible to purchase land in Arua as fulfillment of our prayer for a permanent place of ministry for our orphans and others who are attending school in Uganda. Now, through God’s grace, we are beginning to build the facility that will help house our staff as well as those in the educational system of Uganda. Our hope is to integrate the Ugandan community and South Sudanese community into a collaborative environment of economic development and support.
One current economic project in the development stage is the Arua FBO (fixed base operator). Our desire is to help develop aviation support structures for the existing mission agencies and establish for- profit businesses in that industry that help to advance the Kingdom.
We’re so excited about the possibilities for the Discipleship Center! Please be praying for a continued fruitful partnership in Uganda and for God to be working in the lives of our students and of the leaders in the community.
We need your help to fund the expense of the new Arise Discipleship Center, and hope that you will prayerfully consider contributing to the monthly operating needs there.
