David and Annette’s marriage was broken for many years. Abuse, heartache, resentment, and despair seemed immovable like the Rwenzori Mountains in Uganda.
Sadly, as a child, David spent years watching his father beat his mom over and over again when she didn’t obey his commands. Due to the cultural issues and lack of understanding about God’s intention for marriage many Ugandan families, just like David’s, are shelters of agony and anxiety.
You can unite with us to see marriages heal across Uganda.
The simple invitation and opportunity given to David and his wife, by one of Bright Hope’s partner churches to join a Marriage Fellowship opened the door for restoration. They attended training sessions on communication, forgiveness, conflict resolution, and how to raise godly children, and as a result, their marriage began to heal. Over time, David’s hard heart softened as he understood God’s love and mercy toward him.
During our work among the extreme poor, it has become evident that the strength of a community is built upon the foundation of healthy marriages.
To continue expanding our Marriage Fellowships in 2023, we need to raise $5,250. Your gift of $25, $50, or $100 will reach husbands and wives in Uganda so they can exchange harmful generational practices with Christ-like honor in their marriages and homes.
David used to believe a woman must submit to her husband without questioning anything. And if she didn’t, her husband should beat her into submission. Now David sees that his wife is God’s gift for him to love, treasure, and value as his companion—not his servant.
Please join us in our effort to redeem marriages in Uganda! If our Marriage Fellowship program receives total funding, additional resources will support comparable strategic projects.
