How it all started...

NDG was birthed in 2005 when Alycia took her first trip to Northern Uganda. Having spent time in the region God began marking her heart for different ethnic groups. She fell in love with those who had suffered greatly from the terrible atrocities of Joseph Kony and the LRA (Lords Resistance Army).  Chris and Alycia have been serving in Uganda now for over 17 years. They are committed to going, serving, and rebuilding in nations that have been decimated by war and acts of violence. 

Stuart then and Stuart Now

Meet Stuart Ssewankambo..our Son.  In 2014 this boy changed my life. There was something in his eyes that when I met him it that grabbed a  hold of my heart. I saw love coming out of him that I could not explain. I could not help but to just  hug him and let him know how much I loved him. He clung to me like I  was his father. In that instant we became extremely close.   Sadly just three short days after meeting Stuart he had to leave for secondary school. Shortly after Stuart boarded the bus the Orphan Director shared with me that Stuart was born  HIV  positive and both of his parents died after his birth.  It is a miracle that Stuart is alive. At that very moment my heart broke and I began to weep deep within my soul.  As I began walking away I heard the voice of God broke through and say... "You loved Him well! When you do it to the least of these you do it to Me" (Matthew 25:40)

That was Stuart eight years ago. Today Stuart is a completely changed individual.  For starters he is HIV NEGATIVE! Thank You Jesus. He is living with his Aunt Harriet and her family and he is thriving.  He is part of the production team at his church. He reads God's Word daily while he listens to the bible via The Messenger; a solar bible donated by In Touch Ministries. Stuart has been made whole physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We truly are blessed to call him our Son.
