This is Ricky and Jackie Kahudu. They are the founders of Faith Women Ministry and ISAC Kids in Jinja Uganda. These ministries are currently supporting 880 women and over 650 children.

Thousands of people in Uganda benefit from this ministry and Jackie personally never turns away a newborn, taking them into her own home and raising them as one of her own. At any one time, she has up to 29 children living in her home.

This ministry was founded about 11 years ago to give women and children the skills and opportunities to become self-reliant and to strengthen their faith in the God that loves them.

We have seen many miracles through this powerful ministry over the years and now we are crying out to God for miracles for Ricky and Jackie.

In March of this year, Ricky was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. The tumor has been removed but has left Ricky pretty much unresponsive.

The weight of everything has been on Jackie’s shoulders. On Saturday, June 29, Jackie started hemorrhaging due to female problems. She slipped into a coma and on Monday her heart stopped. After our faithful Dr. worked on her for 43 minutes and the prayers of many saints, God brought her back to us. Tuesday night she woke up from the coma. She has not spoken yet and has a long recovery ahead of her, but we are so grateful that she seems to be coming back.

Along with the mounting medical expenses, we also have the needs of keeping the ministry running, most urgently, the care and feed of all those babies.

Jackie and Ricky are two of the finest people I have ever met. Please pray that God would raise them both up to full and complete health.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and considering making a donation.

Thank you and God bless you!

Jackie is out of the hospital! She is still under the care of her doctor in her mother's home, but she's getting stronger every day. Although she's home, the medical bills are still coming. Would you consider donating to help cover her bills as well as Ricky's and to keep Faith Women Ministry running?

From Jackie’s good friend, Carole:
“Jackie is still recovering in the hospital. Recovery is going a little slower than we had hoped but we are seeing small improvements each day.
Please continue to keep Jackie and her husband Ricky in your prayers. If you can help with any of the expenses from the hospital we would be so grateful. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much and God bless you.”
