Delight in the Lord Ministries was able to purchase land in Uganda, Africa in October of 2021. It is 17 acres near Kampala, Uganda, the capital city of Uganda, and is about five or six miles from the Equator.
You’ve heard about the challenges and the vision to build a boarding school. You’ve heard about the land. And now it is time to reveal the PLAN!
Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit your works to the Lord and your plans will be established.” For over six years now Cierra has been committing her works to the Lord there in Kampala, Uganda, and now we believe the Lord has established the future plans for this ministry.
The plan includes a ministry home where Cierra will live and be able to provide some living accommodations for others as needed. The specific plans are already drawn and have been approved by the government. The next steps include digging a well, getting power to the property, and building a latrine for the workers. The ministry home will be the next to be built.
The boarding school will include a chapel, a classroom building with a computer lab, a classroom building with a library, a girls’ dormitory, a boys’ dormitory, a girls’ latrine, a boys’ latrine, a teachers’ latrine, a cafeteria/lunchroom/cooking area, a headmaster home, an administration building, a building to accommodate overnight visitors, and a football pitch (soccer field). The open acreage between the ministry home and the dormitories will be used to plant tomatoes, beans, corn, etc. to help provide food for the school.
In Luke 14:28-30, Jesus tells us we are to count the cost before setting out to follow Him. God has provided this land and provided these plans, and we have counted the cost – literally! The total cost for this building program is $996,000. That is a BIG number but we serve a BIG God, and I believe that HE WILL PROVIDE!
Psalm 127:1 says, “Unless the Lord builds a house, they labor in vain who build it.” I definitely believe this is God’s work and that we are privileged to join Him in it! This is an exciting ministry opportunity – an outgrowth of a ministry with a proven track record. As Delight in the Lord Ministries embarks on this building campaign for the DLM ministry home and the DLM boarding school, we need GIVERS to support this building project. So I am asking you to please give as God leads so that we can move forward with these plans as God provides. With the ministry home complete, our next short-term goal is $65,000 for the cafeteria/lunchroom/cooking area.
We embark on this work because of Him. It is the result of much prayer, planning, commitment, and a desire to do God’s will in His way and in His timing. When we give from our hearts of our time, our efforts, our prayers, and our money through this ministry, we join the Lord in making it possible for other people to come to know and love Jesus. Thank you in advance for your faithful support of this building project!
