PostHeaderIcon Partners


The Ives are not planning on doing this alone. Besides the help that you will give us, we will be leaning on partners and working under the leadership of others. Here are some of the folks we'll be working.

Bill and Rosemarie Haire
Global Foundation

Bill and Rose Marie have been long time friends here in Nashville. While Bill has been helping Abounding Grace/Grace Center youth do short term missions for years, he has also provided administrative covering for long term missions all over the world. We are grateful that Bill will be helping us during our stay in Uganda.


Amani Baby Cottage

In January, we will move to Jinja where Renee, Sweet Margaret Ruth and Rachel will work at Amani Baby Cottage. Amani was known to Renee before we came to Uganda, but Amani had no need for us before we came. Since that time, an opening has become available for a bookkeeper starting in January. Amani has helped hundreds of orphaned babies and children find a loving home. What a life-changing ministry. We are priveledged to be able to become a part of Amani.

John Michael Mugerwa
Destiny Orphanage and Boarding School

John Michael and his wife, Eva, visited Nashville from their native Uganda many years ago when we struck up a friendship. John Michael and Eva have since gone on to found an orphanage that is caring for hundreds of orphans. We will spend time assisting John Michael and Eva at Destiny while we're in Kampala, Uganda from August through December.


Ron and Shirley DeVore
World Outreach Ministry Foundation

Ron and Shirley are originally from Washington State, but have been ministering in Uganda since 1993. We will not be working directly with WOMF while in Uganda, but we will be connecting with Ron and Shirley while we are there. They have ministries for folks in prison, they feed hungry children, they have programs to pay school fees for children and they hold adult education classes. Please see their website for more info.


Of course, we hope you become our partner as well! Please consider committing to one or more of the following:

  • Praying for us. We need a prayer covering. Let us know that you'll be praying for us, and when you get a revelation let us know.
  • Communicating with us. Let us know that you will write to us and we'll look forward to news from home. We will also need to hear your excitement for us and for what we are doing. We need your encouragment.
  • Giving us money. This trip will not be possible without support funds. We're already well down the road of receiving pledges to cover us. Please join in!
