When I was saved in 1975 the Lord gave me a passion for missions. In 1977 the Lord used Leonard Ravenhill to imprint Romans 15:20 on my heart. Since then I have had the privilege ministering a number of times in India, Uganda, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Pakistan. My wife and I want the remaining years of our lives spent living out this God given call. Carol and I are looking to move to the R.A.U. land north of Moyo on the Ugandan/South Sudan border, as soon as the Lord allows. I earnestly request your prayers in this!
“The Holy Spirit will move them (the lost) by first moving you. If you can rest without their being saved, they will rest too. But if you are filled with agony for them, if you cannot bear that they should be lost, you will soon find that they are uneasy too. I hope you will get in such a state that you will dream about your child or hearer perishing for lack of Christ, and start up at once and begin to cry, ‘Give me converts or I die.’ Then you will have converts.” (CH Spurgeon)
“Ministers knock at the door of men’s hearts (persuasion)…the Spirit comes with the key and opens the door.” (Thomas Watson)
“No reserve, no retreat, no regret.” (William Borden)
“Some like to live within sound of church or chapel bell; I would like to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.” (C.T. Studd)
“I’m not afraid of failure; I’m afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.” and “Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God”William Carey (Missionary to India–1761-1834)
“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever.So worship is the fuel and goal of missions.”— John Piper in “Let The Nations Be Glad” page 11.
“This is the mission of God. Missionary martyrs going, financial martyrs sending; and all of us praying and working together, for the gospel and the glory of God to be known and enjoyed by all peoples.” and “Reckless is right when the cause is Christ”. David Sitton

|Name: Abraham Aluma Vuamaiku
I was born in 1973 2nd January in little village of Vura Bilinyo in Moyo District in Northern Uganda. My father is Yakobo Kujo Aluma and Mam Maritha Sisia both still lives. I received Christ as Lord and Savior in 1983 13th March in exile in Southern Sudan in village of Kala when my Elder brother shared to me how his faith in Christ had changed his life. And I was so persuaded to trust in Christ and commit my life to him to be Lord and Savior of my life. That day I found grace to be forgiven all my sins and given an inheritance among those sanctified by faith in Christ.
In 1985 I returned to Uganda to live in Moyo, I and two other believers started to meet under a tree to worship and pray. We grew up in number and asked for a school building from the Education department of the local government of Uganda to allow us meet in classroom to worship. In 1988 we affiliated to Pentecostal Assemblies of Uganda and obtained legal existence/recognition in Moyo as Born again Church in Madi Moyo District for the first time in history of the Madi tribe.At this time I began to lead in Bible studies, Sunday service, songs in worship, and outreaches sharing the gospel.
On 15th May 1999 I was wedded to Miss Margret Mindraa, a little girl I shared Jesus Christ in 1988 in little village of Pamujo in Metu Sub county in Moyo District and received Christ. God blessed us with our first baby and named him Arron in 2000, followed by Ivan Paul, Raphi Amani, Lin Unziku, and Josiah. So we have five sons in our family.
In 2002 I obtained favor in the eyes of the Lord to Pastor in the town Church in Madulu for three years. As serving Christ in that God brought men from USA to my Church and finding favor gave to me Jesus film equipment to help the Body of Christ in Moyo reach their people with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. I became leader of the team to go out showing the Jesus film in all the 715 villages in Moyo and Adjumani Districts of Northern Uganda. As I went around showing the Jesus film I begun to receive invitations to Southern Sudan District of Kajokeji to come and help the churches reach their people with the Gospel and organize them into Church to worship our Lord God Jesus Christ.
My hands are now held up to Jesus that we all may run to end of what Christ had purposed to be done in our days.

Married: Victoria Nambasa on December 14 2002.Children: Genesis Luana Bukenya and Gabbie Psalms Bukenya.
Ministry Information: Missions Pastor since 1994 in the First Presbyterian Church in Uganda (PCU).
Home: Kampala City, Uganda
My brief life background:
I was born in a polygamous family and we are 21 children though some have gone to be with the Lord. My mother separated with my Dad when I was five years old and life was very hard when I was growing up.
The Lord in His grace saved me in 1987, when First Presbyterian Church did a gospel outreach in our home area.
I have served in the Youth ministry, Mercy and Missions. I have been part of many church planting missions in our church, Crusades and School outreaches. By God’s grace I have been used by God to reach people believing in witchcraft, Muslims etc, with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
What I see as the priority is reaching the unreached through Gospel Evangelism, Discipleship and Church Planting.
Before His ascension, our Lord gave the Great Commission to make disciples by going into all the world, teaching them all He commanded them and baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In RAU we believe that we must engage in gospel evangelism and discipleship in order to see the Kingdom of our Lord advance.
Our Lord has made this promise; “I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18
With this great promise of Scripture, we are assured that the Church, the body and bride of Christ himself, will grow in these places that He has called us to serve Him, Northern Uganda, South Sudan and Eastern Congo. May He be pleased to use us, His servants in the building of His church. In executing our mission, we strive to be:
To God Be the Glory!

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” 2 Corinthians 5:10Glory belongs to the Lord!
The Lord used and He is still using his servant Reverend Dr. Kefa Sempangi who is the founder of FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN UGANDA to take care of the STREET CHILDREN in Uganda. I was one of many whom he rescued from the streets of Kampala. I was placed in MENGO TWO CHILDREN’S CENTER in the year 1986. I was among 70+ kids in that home. At that time I did not value what was being done for me. The center was located in Kampala City. I wasted much of my time by skipping classes.In the year 1993, Reverend Dr. Kefa Sempangi started a Rookmarker Primary School in Mukono District for street kids, orphans and needy kids in Uganda. At that time, I along with others, were all taken away from Kampala City. I attended my primary five up to primary seven and in 1995. I sat for my primary exam finals.
I must confess that for many years before 1995, I served Satan and he was my Master and I followed him and did according to his desires. In 1994 God in His mercy used Reverend Dr. Kefa Sempangi to send me to TEEN MISSION INTERNATIONAL at BUKALEEBA BOOT CAMP for training. I was among 300+ youths who attended their boot camp. It was not until December 1995 when I attended TEEN MISSION INTERNATIONAL BOOT CAMP training the second time that a DEEP, UNDENIABLE THOUGHT disturbed my mind. I responded in faith to the conviction of the Holy Spirit. I did what God ordained, predetermined, preordained and predestined to be done and I was saved by the Lord Jesus Christ.
After my High School in 2001 December, the Lord used Elder Rashid Luswa of BETHEL COVENANT COLLEGE. Rashid took me along with eleven other youths from Reverend Dr. Kefa Sempangi to train us in ‘TAKING THE BULL BY THE HORNS”. After that I went to Kampala International University Teaching Hospital for a Diploma in Clinical Medicine 2002. I was unable to go in 2003. In 2004 at the School of Evangelism at Dr. Krambadaum’s Guesthouse I had a long conversation with Joshua Lee and Jamie Laslo and they encouraged me to pursue nursing. The Lord used David Page from Vanderbilt University Hospital to pay for my tuition when I qualified as an enrolled General Nurse in 2005.Later I volunteered at MIDIGO HOSPITAL, which is located in north Uganda, in 2006 and in 2007. I help plant a primary church based clinic in Kayunga District.
In 2008, the Lord used His servants Jacob and Carol Lee to provide me with tuition for a Diploma in Nursing Science at Kampala International University Teaching Hospital. I qualified as a Registered Nurse 2010.
I will always be thankful to Arne and his wife Julia, their dear son Aaron, and daughter Lea for their prayers during my research. My paper was: “FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO PUERPERAL SEPSIS IN ISHAKA ADVENTIST HOSPITAL”. I was awarded of my Diploma in Nursing Science from Kampala International University Teaching Hospital in 2010.
