David Lubaale, ECM Director for Uganda and New Sudan
Uganda (MNN) ― Why would someone leave a job as consultant with the United Nations to become a Director for Every Child Ministries?
Lorella Rouster says it's a case of ministry come full circle for Uganda director David Lubaale. His experience as an orphan motivates him to work tirelessly on behalf of other orphans. "David's case shows that orphans can have great potential, not only to do well personally, but also to contribute very positively to society and to contribute to the kingdom of God."
He believes Christian organizations can accomplish the most for African children because only Jesus can offer hope for true and lasting change.
Moving toward this goal, Lubaale earns his masters' degree this month in conflict resolution. He also established the Future Victory School which takes in orphans and offers education for the community.
Because his heart was moved to love the outcast, marginalized and downtrodden children, he adopted nine orphans and raised many of them to young adulthood--accomplishing all of this as a single parent.
His purpose is single-minded: to teach orphans the dynamics of God's love for them and the real purpose behind their lives.
Rouster says his story can inspire others toward kingdom building. "I hope that his example gives hope to people that it's really worthwhile to invest in orphans and in children that might not look like they have a lot of potential now. But if we can just see them through Jesus' eyes, we can realize that they have immense potential."
Lubaale is raising missionary support for his continued ministry in both Uganda and Southern Sudan. Click here if you can help.
