Overseas mission

Peter at King’s Kid Ministries, Mityana, Uganda

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” – Matthew 5:14-15

My mission in life is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, the fatherless, the widows and the hopeless, so that they may know that they have a Father in heaven who sent His Son into the world to die for them because He loves them, and come to a realisation of their true identity, worth and value as children of God.

I am serving with King’s Kid Ministries International Uganda, as it brings the love of God to aching communities in Uganda. Sheltering, educating and loving children that would otherwise have been unsheltered, uneducated and unloved is the mission of King’s Kid. King’s Kid Home School takes full-time care of children from all walks of life (orphaned, half-orphaned or destitute) and aims to restore a sense of belonging, dignity and future in their lives.

As well as teaching at and being an administrator of King’s Kid Home School, I am Sidley Baptist Church’s representative to King’s Kid and on a wider scale I am King’s Kid’s representative to the entire world. I am doing this by coordinating all of the ministry’s international liaisons. I see building and strengthening relationships of integrity, mutual respect and understanding between King’s Kid and its partners as a key part of my role. Unity is so important if we are going to grow and I am going to keep emphasising it as we, Sidley Baptist Church, come alongside King’s Kid and walk forward together in faith to advance the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Thank you Sidley Baptist Church family, for loving and supporting me. Please continue to pray for wisdom, protection and peace. Also for provision for King’s Kid Home School, we continue to face daily challenges, in terms of food supply and worker’s salaries.

BMS World Mission

As a Baptist Church we are also members of BMS World Mission. This is a Christian mission organisation, working in around 34 countries on four continents. BMS believes in holistic mission, an approach that stays true to the Christian call to evangelisation without neglecting the duty to take care of the physical needs of the poor.

BMS works through long, medium and short-term workers, teams and volunteers, as well as a large number of supported national partner workers around the world, providing people, funding, training and expertise in the core areas of our work:

  • Church planting
  • Development
  • Disaster relief
  • Education
  • Health
  • Media and advocacy

As one of the world’s oldest Protestant mission organisations (founded in 1792 by William Carey, the father of modern mission) BMS has long-standing relationships with partner organisations, umbrella mission agencies and local church unions in the countries in which it works. This, along with a long-term approach, ethical policies and supreme cultural sensitivity, has made BMS one of the most trusted names in mission worldwide.
