Making Kochgoma a Place of Praise!

shared by Cindy May and Pastor Experito Bulamu

Getting to know Experito and Justine…


The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory!…and (we shall) give him (God) no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth. Isaiah 62:7

I (Cindy) have to say our God is amazing!  We did not know where the money was coming from for this new school in Kochgoma (Gulu, Uganda).  God has supplied in unexpected and surprising ways!  The money has come in, and it has gone out.  School construction is underway.

Here is Experito’s response when he learned of God’s provision:

My God is good!!!!

This is a giant leap and a real landmark in the journey of our faith. Please, I am all jubilations for what the Almighty has done.  What was a dream has come true.  A school open up in the jungles of Ajwiya (in Kochgoma) to meet the plight of the Invisible Children!

Justine and I have been praying and  fasting for God to move in His way and spark this project. We shall not let go of God until He makes this place a place of praise. This is a fundamental breakthrough!!

Hugs and love


He gives rain on the earth and sends water on the fields. Job 5:10

Also, you may recall Experito and Justine, his wife, had to walk long distances to haul dirty water back to their home.  But! God supplied a water tank that catches rain water.  And in Experito’s words, “That very night rain came and we have sufficient water even for some village kids to drink from the biosand water filter which Justine religiously fills daily.  Many Blessings, Experito”

BEFORE: The water source they were using--a 2 km walk each way.

Justine gets water from the rain-catchment tank

Filling the biosand filter

Clean water, enough water, and no 2 km super-workout required


One who is taught the Word, must share all good things with the one who teaches. Galatians 6:6

“Justine said Experito screamed when she told him I was bringing peanut butter!” ~ Tonya Brown (moving to Uganda next week)

I am more of Mr. Rabbit in Uganda than of Cookie Monster, which is an appropriate title for me in America.  I would like to trade off the cookies and pizookies for the peanut butter. It was like hot cakes for whoever tasted the American version of peanut butter. When I asked the security guys at Chicago about carrying peanut butter as hand luggage they did say that they do not object to carrying food!!!! Then I promised myself next time I will carry only peanut butter as hand luggage.~ Experito


Every good and perfect gift is from above… James 1:17

And finally, Experito sent a photo of himself using his laptop after we helped provide a wireless internet card so that he didn’t need to go distances to an internet cafe that didn’t always provide service.  The caption is what he titled the photo 🙂

Now even in the bush I can access internet!

    Yup! That’s my pastor and his wife! I love the sound of that. And those “Invisible Children” are NOT invisible in the eyes of our Savior. I will gladly claim every last one of them AS MY OWN 🙂 I am so blessed by this ministry. I am so in love with serving our awesome God!

    I hope you don’t mind me leaving you a comment. I noticed you have a heart for Him and are a follower of Katie Davis’ blog. I’m a 26 year old woman from England who has been called of God to become a Mama to many Ugandan children. I move to Uganda in January of next year and will be taking in children & loving them, just like Katie. I wondered if you might perhaps be interested in my blog. The link is:
