My Father's House began in 2008, as a home for children who had been orphaned, under the leadership of Pastors Ernest and Thelma Howie, from Londonderry, in Northern Ireland, which is part of UK. The vision quickly grew and soon there were 40 children being cared for. It was decided that a school should be established on the site, and this was opened in 2012. The school began to grow as local residents expressed a desire to send their children to the facility. The numbers have increased rapidly, and there are now 170 children attending.

The vision is for 100 orphaned children to be cared for, so the leadership is still actively pursuing that goal. It is also our desire to continue growing the school, and have 500 students attending. Currently, we have a manager, a headmistress, 7 teachers, and 10 other staff carrying our various duties within the project. Central to all that we do at MFH, is the gospel of Jesus Christ, and all of our staff are born again Children of God, who teach Christian principles on a daily basis. We thank God that we have caring sponsors in UK who support us in this work of the kingdom, by making regular contributions to the cost of food, clothing, education and medical needs of our children. As our numbers increase, the need for more sponsors is great, and we encourage you to consider helping and supporting us in this vital work for the Kingdom of God.























Giving children life in its fullness (John 10:10)

Children at MFH participated in the celebrations organized by the NGO's working with children Mbale to mark Uganda's Golden jubilee under the theme "Uganda @ 50 with children". Children from MFH composed a Jubilee song that was sang at the function and Jonah wanyanga was the child guest of honor. Children from MFH made several performances and they merged best in Music Dance and Drama, leave alone the moving speech from the guest child.

This year we were able to harvest 150kg of maize besides that which was prepared and eaten fresh by roasting or cooking. The 150 kgs will be milled to supplement the children's feeding needs.

Related to the above, we have prepared the garden and planted a potatoes, cassava, vegetables and passion fruits. Some of the vegetable seeds were given to us by friends from Jesus is alive church.

Our children are learning some livelihood skills and at best are able to bake some cakes, cookies and madazi.

As a sign of spiritual growth and Christian Maturity, 12 children were baptized in September. We praise God that this very important spiritual milestone was done in the presence of Pastor Ernest Howie, our Spiritual Parents and donors.
Forty (40) children have been provided with a home and being cared for in a holistic manner; ie receiving education, healthcare, feeding, housing and spiritual development. Abundant Life Primary and Nursery School started in January 2012. The school has a total population of 60 pupils, out of which 20 are from the community.

A borehole has been sunk within the compound to supply water to both the home and the school. This has greatly reduced the prevalence of diseases like diarrhea, dysentery and typhoid among the children and the community at large that come as a result of drinking unsafe water. Supplied over 1000 mosquito nets to the community in the effort to prevent malaria.

We started a Sunday service and midweek programs at MFH in June 2012. Children are encouraged to participate as a means for their spiritual growth as well as a way of developing their talents. The children are able to seek God through prayer, lead praise and worship sessions and read scriptures during the services. These programs are open to the community and the response is amazing. As a result of this initiative, 7 people (adults) from the community have given their lives to Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. In the month of July 2012, we acquired a sound system, and this has flavored our Sunday services greatly to the glory of God. We have seen our children grow in the thing of the Lord and among many.

In June 2012, the children from My Father's House participated in the celebrations to mark the day of the African Child. During the celebrations as an children's home, we partnered with the Red Cross society of Uganda and offered First Aid services at the function.

There is great improvement in the sitting arrangement in the classrooms that ensures pupil comfort and encourages learning and concentration. Testimonies from the community confirm to us that the children in My Father's House Primary School are more informed that their counterparts in other schools. We believe that this will translate into having more children from the community in the next academic year.

In the course of this year, the Director (Mr. Isaac Kitutu and His wife Gloria) received a gift of a baby boy called Adriel, as part of the blessing and Praise report from My Father's House.
