Goretti's Restaurant: Funded

Baruch Hashem! ACTS for Messiah is pleased to report that the funding goal for Goretti's restaurant project has been met. A young single mother of two, Goretti has struggled to support herself and young children. Now, she will be able to begin to sustain herself and provide an education for her children. Thank you to all who contributed to this endevour, may the Lord bless you. 

Support Goretti

Goretti is a young Ugandan mother. Hardly able to support herself, she is raising two young boys while caring for an HIV positive cousin.

Since the father of her boys left, Goretti has struggled. She wants what any mother would want. To provide her children with a good home and an education. Even though her son Daniel excels in his studies, he is unable to continue in his schooling.

Between Daniel and the classroom is the cost of a pair of shoes and a school uniform.

Messianic Youth Conference

Olinga Gilbert Elected as Guild President.

Olinga Gilbert and supporters celebrate victory

In early December, Olinga Gilbert (one of ACTS for Messiah’s boys) was elected to the prestigious position of Guild President at the international Cavendish University. To Gilbert, who is studying Social Economic Science, the election and subsequent victory came as a surprise.

“Becoming a Guild President of an international university where 90% of students are foreigners had never crossed my mind,” Gilbert said. “This was the work of HaShem.” Gilbert only found out he had been nominated into the election after he returned from a week of field work in North Uganda.
