A Transformed Church Turns Into A Source Of Hope For The Community

Kyempene PAG church is an assembly church located in Ntungamo district. It ispastored by David Byaruhanga who doubles as a zone leader. For the last 5 years kyempene has been running Church and Community Mobilisation and the first stage is complete. Earlier the church had reached at community description but its leadership was not ready by then to engage the community.

Pastor David aged 47, living in Kakamba Kyempene is married to one Christian wife with 5 children (2 female and 3 male). He has been a pastor for kyempene church from 1993 to date. Last year they got a conviction after doing church and community description tools with the community. They were prompted by the Holy Spirit to find vulnerable children in the community and as a result the church has identified children

who were malnourished and nearly to their death bed and have mobilized resources and taken them to hospital and they are now healthy. Three children were identi ed and at that time their body weight was 6-7kgs, they are 2yrs old now and their body weight has increased to 12kgs. This and many other things have made the church to be the salt and light to the community.

They now plan to begin a pre- school at church beginning with this year and this will enable many house holds and children to be supported by the church. Apart from this programme, they also reach out to widows and elderly persons in the community and they meet with them monthly to encourage them through the word of God but they also use their resources to meet their needs.

They have been able to train leaders using the CCT approach and now the church is very excited to do ministry.
