Supporting This Ministry:

Please prayerfully consider supporting the following HEALING OF FAMILIES events:

Help Us!

If you have been blessed by this ministry, help us bless others with it!

1. Help us purchase a small two-room house with a small hall and small chapel attached to it, in Uganda, that will function as a small Healing of Families Center, where we can continuously run HOF seminars for small groups of leaders any time of the week. The owner has greatly been blessed by the HOF ministry and in thanksgiving wants to sell his strategic property to the ministry at a very good price: the equivalent of US $57,142.00.

But while the owner can wait a little bit for us to find the money to buy it; first help us purchase a plot of land attached to it, where eventually the small hall can extend into. This is a more urgent need, because that owner will not wait for us! This plot of land will cost us US $8,000.

2. A team of young people who have been very well trained in the HOF ministry in Uganda have constantly been called upon to give the HOF seminar in different parts of the country, with amazing results and testimonies. This has been going on for 3 years now. We are seeking to purchase a used pick-up truck for their traveling, especially when they have to travel in the countryside out of the towns. That will greatly improve the efficiency of their ministry, by providing easier access to people, and a more efficient use of their time. We keep in mind that they are still working on their own growth and development for their own future. So they can’t put a lot of volunteer time into the ministry, so enthusiastic as they may be about it. Time efficiency therefore is very important, other than relying on public transport, moreover not available everywhere. The used truck will cost us US $14,550.00.

3. A number of religious Orders of nuns in East Africa have requested to have the HOF seminar for their members, after seeing the good fruit among those who have gone through it, and the blessing it has been for their own ministries. Help us to be able to provide this opportunity to these dedicated women of God.  On average one HOF seminar is attended by 200 nuns. This is an approximate cost of US $17.5 per day per person, for 200 people, = 17.5 x 200; for 4 days , = 17.5 x 200 x 4 =US  $14,000.00. They will usually be able to raise half of this cost, US $7,000. So for every US 7,000 you help us with, we provide the HOF seminar to 200 nuns, who will in turn help scores of families they minister to.

Thank you for prayerfully considering to pass on to others your family’s healing blessing that you have freely received, through the HOF ministry, from the Heavenly Father! Please let us know for any piece of contribution you wish to make, at

Higher Education Needed for Students in Africa

For many African children, education is the only way out of a life entrenched in poverty. Across the continent, millions of families currently survive on less than $5 per day. Only those who can read, write and do arithmetic can hope to get a better paying job when they grow up.

A society without education becomes the breeding ground for violence and intolerance. Only an educated society will promote tolerance and peace, justice and understanding, innovation and advancement. It is for this reason that I have been supporting students in Africa for over ten years, so that God's precious children will achieve their greatest potential.

Thank you,
