Evan & Britny are currently fundraising for their move to Gulu, Uganda in East Africa January 2017

As missionaries supported by WFMC, Evan & Britny are currently in the fundraising and research phase for their move to Gulu, Uganda in East Africa January 2017. They will be there for at least 1 year to serve with Our Call Missions and Christ the Center Ministry raising up children with a biblical world view through education and discipleship.
 
Our Call Missions is currently piloting Village Learning Centers in two remote villages in northern Uganda. The teachers are trained to use the village surroundings to teach the children in reading, writing, and math while instilling Christ-like values. The hope is to change the next generation in the village by teaching problem solving skills as well as discipling the children in the love of Christ. Specifically, Evan and Britny will assist in training teachers in assessing their students, teach hands-on learning techniques, and help families to develop new agricultural and income-generating techniques.
 
Christ the Center Ministry (CTCM) meets a large need in the community of Gulu by providing a quality, Christ-centered education that is affordable for all children. It will be a place where children feel loved and accepted and are encouraged to fulfill their destinies by discovering who God has created them to be. At this time, specific tasks are unknown; however, God has placed CTCM in their lives for a reason. Their hearts are drawn to the children in this ministry and they hope to see it flourish.
 
 
 

These are our happy faces because our one time, initial moving costs have been covered! Whoo hoo! 

Our estimated monthly budget for living in Gulu is $2,500. 

So far our lovely friends and family have helped us reach 21.2% of our monthly budget!! 

We would LOVE if you would partner with us to increase that to 50% by the end of October and 100% by the end of the year! 

While we were camping last weekend we got to talk about how overwhelming, humbling, and amazing this process has been! Even though fundraising can be intimidating, it is so neat to experience God's faithfulness and the body of Christ supporting us in such a tangible way.

I believe that we are in the midst of addressing the greatest human rights tragedy of our generation.

Initially, after learning that there were more than 27 million modern day slaves in our world today, of whom 7-8 million are child sex-slaves, I was enraged and opted to pursue vigilante type of rescues as a means to fight against this injustice.  As I became more familiar with the raids and rescue process, it became  evident that there were no safe homes or facilities for victims to go once they were rescued.  Hence, the vision of El Pozo de Vida, A.C. was born.

I realized that the initial work of rescues was difficult, but more significant would be the process after the rescue, the restoration and rehabilitation of the victims.  Our EPDV home and programs we have developed are in response to a commitment to provide holistic transformation for these vicitms.

I know we cannot do this alone.  Even with our collaboration with government agencies and other rescue homes (which we are one of maybe three here in Mexico City), we are only in the initial stages of addressing this global issue.  The gross reality is, human trafficking exists on a global scale, but together, we can create a global freedom revolution and a global abolitionist movement to end modern day slavery.  Will you join us to do your part?
