Humura Mission Agency provides programs focused on life transformation through projects such as feeding the hungry, street and hospital evangelism, children's clubs, deaf ministries, orphan care, women's ministry, school ministry, next-generation leadership, as well as through soccer and youth camps. Additionally, we are providing COVID-19 relief to those who are at-risk and living in impoverished communities.
We consider every outreach event as an opportunity to connect on a cultural level to point people of all ages to Jesus Christ. It is a blessing to be able to use various venues as a platform that is geared towards building rapport with those living in the local communities with the goal of creating disciples who make other disciples to fulfill the Great Commission.
Jesus said, “Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’” (Matthew 25:34-39, NRSB).
Given that we are serving the needy in poor areas, feeding those who are hungry testifies that we care. Thus, we embark on the journey of making disciples by building relationships with those we serve who are in desperate need of physical nourishment. Furthermore, caring for those who are hungry opens up doors for ministry to provide spiritual nourishment. For example, during the pandemic we have had the opportunity to provide food and the hope found only in Jesus Christ to over 300 hungry families. We are thankful for God’s provision to be able to reach the unreached in this capacity.

Abraham Kuyper says, "There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!" Humura Mission Agency views every place as an opportunity that God has provided for a divine connection to tell people about Jesus. Some of our missionaries use the local streets as a potential venue to meet people and engage in meaningful, spiritual conversations that could lead them to put their faith and trust in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Marketplace missionaries readily minister to others passing by in the streets and often meet vulnerable street kids who need hope and encouragement. The missionaries intentionally build a rapport with those that they interact with through conversations with a goal of making disciples. They offer to meet with individuals in-person and in a neutral setting. It takes about 6-12 months of meetings to make disciples. The meetings help increase their faith and allows them to make connections for further disciple-making.

The Bible says, “Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray.” (Proverbs 22:6 NRSB) One sustainable method we have used for disciple-making is to create consistent opportunities to teach children the Word of God. We hold weekly meetings for kids at churches where we teach them Bible stories and Scripture verses in order to create a solid foundation for children to learn about Jesus. After the teaching, we feed the children bread and porridge. The provision of bread and porridge has helped us develop a bond with children from other religious backgrounds. As they attend our programs, we have the opportunity to feed them both physically and spiritually. This outreach program is currently operating in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
$1.40 (sponsoring one child per week)
$400 (to feed 300 kids per week)
Those who are deaf are the most neglected individuals in our communities. It grieves us to see some churches completely ignore these people in their congregations even though the Great Commission is for all human beings. We wholeheartedly believe that the love of Christ never discriminates. Thus, we are determined to reach out those who are deaf with the intention to disciple them. Since these individuals are the most neglected people in the community, it is very important to teach them practical trade skills in order to help them take care of their personal needs. We aspire to teach them professional skills in the carpentry, bricklaying, and welding trades.
Our goal for the future is to build and establish carpentry and welding shops to train them to make items that can be sold in their local communities for a profit. We want to provide them with the skills needed to maintain a sustainable income to help them become productive citizens in their communities. This ministry project is currently taking place in Rwanda and the Congo.
$500 (to support one student to be trained in a six-month trade school program)
$15,000 (to start a trade school and build carpentry and welding shops; to purchase machines, supplies, machine parts, and installation fees)
We are extending Jesus' love to sick patients who are admitted to the hospitals who don't have immediate family members to care for their basic needs. These patients' homes are located far away from the hospital and the hospitals do not provide food and other hygiene needs like soap, toilet papers, or even food. As we provide for their immediate physical needs, it serves as a venue which we use to share Jesus with them. We also have the opportunity to pray for and with the hospital patients as well as with those who are sick or near death. Our missionaries travel to local hospitals twice per month. This ministry project is currently up and running in Rwanda and the DR Congo.
$200 (to provide hygiene kits with soap, toilet paper, and food for the sick each month)
An active women’s ministry in the local church can enhance the lives of women living within the community in many ways. By ministering to women’s unique needs and by purposely training and equipping women for service, women’s ministries can help ensure that every woman finds a way to be involved in the mission of the church. Women are the backbone of the family. They hold the family together. The main responsibilities of married women are to care for their husband's needs and to take care of their children (if God has blessed them with a growing family).
The purpose of the women’s ministry is to equip, encourage, and challenge women in their journey as disciples of Jesus Christ and members of His Church. Our seasoned women’s ministry leaders train women in their local communities with the tools and resources needed to establish a godly home and fruitful women’s ministries in their own churches. They utilize effective strategies in their training to help them take better care of their children and manage their households. The women are hungry and thirsty to learn how they can become theologically strong to support their husbands in the ministry. Women’s ministry leaders follow-up with the women they train and mentor on WhatsApp by sharing relevant lessons with them and staying connected with one another through group chats. The leaders also hold an annual Women’s Conference so that pastor’s wives and church leader’s wives can come together for additional support and edification. The ministry provides a platform to also bring women's perspectives to the issues facing the Church. The goal of the ministry is to train and mentor women to become effective biblical leaders in their churches and communities by pouring in truth to their lives using biblical principles. Usually 30-40 women from different places around Rwanda and the DR Congo are invited to attend the conference.
$25 (per individual to attend a disciple-making training)
$500 (to hold a Women’s Conference)
As long as we still have the opportunity and freedom to preach, worship, and pray in schools, we will take full advantage of that. Some of our missionaries go to local schools to preach publicly while having Bible studies. Others have the ability to preach in open air meetings. God has been using this ministry to help us minister to and save kids across elementary, middle, and high schools around Sub-Saharan Africa.
Through this unique ministry, we also have the ability to freely provide school supplies to poor students in all grade levels. We are honored to help the poor children whose parents have financial limitations by extending the love of Jesus in a tangible way by being His hands and feet.
With a new school year beginning each January, we are able to print the booklets used in Humura Mission Agency’s Bible study curriculum for the students to use so that they can start the year learning more about Jesus Christ.
$5 (to print notes and booklets used in the HMA Bible study curriculum)
$20 (to support one needy child during the school year)
If you want to reach the youth in Africa, one of the most strategic venues to use is to provide soccer tournaments and premier league matches to them. It is well known that most of the youth in Africa are supporters of the premier league teams. We reach the youth through soccer tournaments by creating venues at church facilities to have premier league matches. These tournaments serve as a potential platform to make initial contact with the youth and allow for increased opportunities to create disciples who will, in time, become disciple-makers. Our indigenous missionaries, Pastor Patrick from Pakwach, Northern Uganda, uses soccer to teach the local youth about Jesus. He organizes tournaments which provide him with strategic access to the youth in local communities.
We also hold weekly premier league outreaches at church facilities where we broadcast live soccer premier league matches for free. The youth and young adults attend these gatherings because the cost for a monthly subscription to the soccer premier league TV channels, such as DSTV or CANAL PLUS. When we broadcast the matches each week, the local youth and young adults living in Uganda and Rwanda eagerly attend and we use it as a potential opportunity to minister to those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus.
$100 (for a monthly subscription to the soccer premier league TV channels used for the premier league outreaches held at churches)
$1,500 (to hold one soccer tournament every year)
