We arrived in Kampala October 29, 2015 to be greeted by our driver and good friend Kiwa. The following days we spent a great deal of time with Kiwa and Pastor David Turyatemba establishing the logistics needed to implement BCM's feeding program for New Planet Primary School. The school is comprised of students who live in slums of Kampala. During this visit we were blessed to spend some time with the children visiting their classrooms and enjoying their performances for us.
The school has grown to 315 students since our January 2015 visit. It was a blessing to meet the students and their teachers. They sang and performed for us and expressed their gratitude to all who have contributed to BCM's feeding program.
We accompanied Pastor David and Kiwa to purchase supplies for the school. We were amazed at the incredible crowds and energy of the wholesale district in Kampala. Kiwa was amazing, as he managed to drive us through tremendous traffic jams of cars and trucks competing for one of the limited parking spaces. It was there that we found vendors offering good discounts for the rice, beans, maize, oil, salt and sugar that are the basics of the simple, yet nutritious meals prepared for the students each school day.
In addition to the food items purchased, we bought a 1000 liter water storage tank. This was an enormous blessing. The school doesn't have running water. Prior to receiving the water tank they would purchase water at a tap located on the main alley of the slum. This would require 18 trips daily carrying about 5 gallons of water in yellow plastic Jeri cans. It was a time consuming and laborious task. The cost, just $125! It amazed us how much their day to day lives were improved your donations.
Our first exposure to the vast slums of Kampala was January 2015 where we held a crusade with Set Free Ministries. The driver sent to take us to the crusade site got lost, or so it seemed, taking us in the back alley ways of the meandering slum. We straddled streams of human waste as we passed hundreds of make-shift shacks one connected to next. In the midst of incomprehensible poverty where disease is rampant we encountered the children of the slums. Some with distended bellies, some with crusty noses, dirty clothes tattered and torn smiling and vying for our attention with the universal antics of children everywhere. They won our hearts that night and we walked away asking the Lord how we could help.
We brought the need to anyone who would listen and for those who have responded, you have made a difference in the lives of over 300 primary school age children.
We believe with food in their bellies and an education, they will break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
On behalf of the beautiful children of New Planet Primary School, thank you!

It is a great honor to be associated with CFN - FMC
About CFN - FMC
Christ for the Nations Fellowship of Ministers and Churches (CFNFMC), formerly known as the Alumni Ministers’ Fellowship, was founded in 1991 to provide an avenue for licensed and ordained alumni to network with fellow alumni ministers. In December 2000, the CFNFMC Presbyters voted to allow non-alumni ministers to receive credentials from CFN as well as allowing ministries and churches to come under the umbrella of CFN through affiliation with the Fellowship of Ministers and Churches.
CFNFMC was established to provide spiritual covering, pastoral care, mutual accountability, ministry resource and fellowship for its credential holders, affiliated churches and ministries which ascribe to the vision and mission of the fellowship.
The mission of CFNFMC is to be a fellowship of people who have purposed to be faithful in stimulating one another to glorify God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, and to obey Christ’s mandate to preach the Gospel and to make disciples of all nations. We are committed to serving and equipping our members in carrying out their respective missions; to license and ordain qualified ministers, local church elders and leaders in the body of Christ; and to be a covering for local churches and ministries who decide to affiliate with CFNFMC.
The CFNFMC holds to the Statement of Faith espoused by Christ For The Nations, while recognizing the diversity of beliefs among Spirit-filled Christians of Scriptural integrity. Therefore, we open the arms of this fellowship to include and embrace all who hold to the foundational truths of the Christian faith.
The Presbyters Board, a group of 21 men and women, constitutes the Board of Directors of the CFN FMC.
The Executive Board of the FMC, consisting of the FMC president, Rod Groomer, Dr. Sidney Westbrook, Rev. Johnny Moffitt, Rev. John Hollar, and Rev. Chris Juhl, secretary/treasurer, meets regularly to address concerns of the membership.

Disease is rampant in the slums
During our recent mission outreach to Uganda we saw first-hand the desperate needs of children who live in the sprawling slums of Kampala. We are raising funds to provide meals for the students of
New Planet Primary School,
located in the Kampala slums.
For many of the children the only meals they will have are the ones provided at the school they attend.

Kenya 2013 -Testimonies
We rejoice as testimonies reach us in response to all that the Holy Spirit did during our recent trip to Kenya. The following is a letter received from a dear brother, Pastor Joram Wamalwa, Prince of Peace Worship Center, Sikhendu, Kenya.
Dear Servants of The Lord, Larry and Pat, we loved you the day we first met you in Kakamega, Kenya.
The Lord used you mightily in the Widows Conference. One of the widows, Sister Gladys, from our church in Sikhendu, received an answer to her prayer request as you prayed for her. She had no home and after the conference, she was offered a residence on a specious plot. Ever since you were in our Church we have experienced rapid growth of membership and spiritual maturity.
There was prophetic anointing at the washing of the feet .My wife Rev. Noel Wamalwa, who had a heart surgery a year ago and was still feeling internal pain, received healing, she has never complained since then. Sister Fridah Amutabi, your interpreter and the leader of widows in C.E.C. Ministries has improved so much in the skills of interpretation. This confirms what the bible says that signs shall follow them that believe, will lay their hands on the sick and they will recover.
My Bishop, Peter James Onguko and his wife Susan trust you so much and they recommend you to us to pray, work and explore the kingdom for the Glory of God. We yearn to see you back at the Prince of Peace, as soon as possible.
I believe this message will receive a response from you.
Rev. Joram Wamalwa, Pastor
Prince of Peace Worship Center
Mission Kenya 2013
Our outreach was under the ministry of Bishop Peter and Susan Onguko of Africa For Christ Evangelical Association. Our lives are greatly enriched by the friendship that quickly developed with these amazing servants of the Lord. Their compassion and tireless ministry in Kenya is making a tremendous impact.
There is a resounding greeting that vibrates in Kenya - Welcome! It started with the customs agent that processed our visas and was repeated many times during our stay.
We were welcomed indeed to this amazing country by the Onguko Family who greatly cared for all of our needs, as they introduced us to the work of the Lord in Kenya.
Bishop Peter & Susan Onguko
The focus of our ministry was three fold to reach out to widows, the elderly and church leadership.
2013 Widow's Conference
Praying for Widow's
The plight of widows is heart wrenching and greatly disturbing. They are shunned by their deceased husband's family, they are harassed and threatened and forced to abandon their homes and curses by witch doctors haunt them. What was their crime? The death of their husband.
A strong tribal-family culture dictates that the property of a male reverts back to his family and no regard is given to a widow or her children. Although the Kenyan Constitution gives a woman the right of inheritance of her home and property, most do not have the knowledge, finances or the emotional strength to fight for their rights. Along with their children they are forced into a life of poverty. We had the honor of ministering at a Widow's Conference and we visibly saw the difference in their lives as they accepted Jesus and allowed His compassion to touch them. They left as victors not victims. They knew they were important and special in the eyes of God!
Visiting the Elderly
We walked along a muddy path that led to a cluster of mud huts where we had the honor of meeting some of these precious ladies. We noted how frail they were.
Age related restrictions strip them of the ability to walk any distance for socialization. With little human contact loneliness creeps in.
Their needs are held in the compassionate hearts of Bishop and Susan Onguko, who have not forgotten them. As resources allow, Susan Onguko visits these precious ladies bringing them food served up with warm fellowship. The love that flows from Susan's heart is tangible and we had the honor of walking in her footsteps! As we handed out small packages of food we noted how tightly they held their treasure.
Jesus loves these precious ladies and it was privilege to pray for them, to hold them, to let them know that He cares for their needs.
2013 Leadership Conference
Larry preached powerful and uncompromising messages to challenge pastors, lay leadership and their congregations. With a strong emphasis to not corrupt biblical truths with cultural influences reinforcing the local congregations responsibility to remove the stigma on widows and their children.
Lives were transformed, many experienced salvation, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, deliverance, physical healings, answers to various needs.
17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
We thank the Lord for the opportunity to minister to the beautiful people of Kenya.....and,
Just as we'd heard, once you visit Africa, Africa will remain in your heart forever!
MISSION KENYA 2013
Together we can make a difference!
I had just finished my breakfast and there was a small piece of sausage left on my plate, as I scrapped it off into the garbage disposal, my thoughts went back to my childhood days. I remembered my mother saying to me, “eat everything on your plate, they’re starving kids in the world.” I was one of the “clean your plate” kids. I never missed a meal or ever wondered where my next meal would come from.
Each morning far too many Kenyan children start the day without breakfast and for most there will be no school lunch yet daily they will walk down a dirt path on their way to school barefooted filled with hope for a better future.
Then, as I was praying, I was overcome with a great feeling of compassion for the Kenyan people as the Lord showed me children waking up with nothing to eat. As I type this note, I have tears running down my face saying, Lord what can I do? I can’t feed the world. The Lord responded, “just as I save each soul one at the time, feed my children, one at the time.”
In over 30 years of ministry I have never had the Lord move on me in this way. I appeal to each of you to search your hearts and see what you can do to help us feed one child at a time. Together we can make a difference!

A Kenyan Mother
With Her Children
Thought For The Day
Rev. Larry L. Graham
As I listen to the news, it seems that everyone wants more freedom of choice. One of the least understood processes of life is the “Power of Choice”. The issue is not having the freedom to choose but rather making right choices.
We make hundreds of choices every day and many we don’t even think about, we just do it.
Thankfully, most choices we make are benign with little influence on our lives. However, all too often this same automatic decision process is carried over to more serious choices.
Created with free will, we have the God given right to make choices in life, just as Adam and Eve had a choice in the Garden of Eden.
However, many are blinded with the fact that they have to live with the inevitable, life-altering consequences of bad choices. As a result, they are confronted with a cascading impact that creates obstacles that could have been avoided.
Therefore, it is important that we know God’s word, seek Godly counsel, pray and give a great deal of thought to the choices we make. There is ONE major choice that each of us will be confronted with, the choice of accepting Jesus Christ as our personal Savior or denying Him. There are huge consequences to this choice. Acceptance brings eternal life, the joy of an intimate relationship with Jesus and so much more. Denial brings eternal death and living in a world without the blessings of God.
What Will You Do With
Deut 30:19-20 AMP
19… I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.
20And may love the Lord your God, obey His voice, and cling to Him. For He is your life and the length of your days.
Do you know him?
