Harvest Vision Africa History
Harvest Vision Africa began in November 2005, during George and Linda’s trip to Kampala, Uganda. They visited Martin and Beatrice for one month. During this time they had the vision to begin Harvest Vision Africa. Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, and seeing the need for the ministry, Martin traveled and ministered in Uganda and Western Kenya. Seeing the need in the Body of Christ in the Great Lakes Region, we were led to establish an outer court and resource center to help the Body in general to fulfill the Great Commission. A few months later, the Lord blessed us with a place for this mission center, which is also where Martin’s family resides.
Through Martin’s connections in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, and the D.R. Congo, we visited these nations and were able to get in touch with men and women of God such as Eliud and the late Deborah Abijah, Joseph and Anne in Rwanda, Evariste and Adele in Burundi, and Isaac and Jose in D.R.Congo.
From trips to these countries, what began in Kampala as a simple resource center began to bless these nations as well. At that time, we acquired a very simple sound system to support ministry outreaches in these countries.
Harvest Vision Africa has continually and steadily grown to bless many, especially people who have come to the office in Kampala. Through the help of our then office manager, David Idoru, HVA has been registered with the National Fellowship of Born Again Churches of Uganda and MEPI (Makindye East Pastor’s Initiative).
Today, Harvest Vision Africa has grown and expanded to have branch ministry in South sudan that is under the Leadership of John and Sarah Light Akuleng. The Ministry in Juba is bringing the lost to the knowledge of Christ.,
In Uganda, the ministry now has three sets of sound systems in Uganda, one set of sound system based in Kampala to cater for the evangelism needs in the central region in Uganda. The second sound system is now based in Eastern Uganda, its use being controlled by Pr. Tom Billy the Harvest Vision Coordinator in Eastern Uganda, a man on fire for God, spreading the word of God in the Eastern Region in Uganda and running three bible schools in Mbale and Namayingo and Kokoro. The third set of equipment is in the Northern part of Uganda caled Gulu, a place known for insurgency that affected the people in that region. This set of equipment is under the leadership of Ms. Prossy Amony a young woman on fire for God, who carries out monthly evangelism against all odds.
