Mugabi Byenkya is an award- winning writer who wash born to Ugandan parents in Nigeria and is currently based in Kampala. Mugabi lives outside the gender binary and has a seizure disorder, chronic fatigue and experiences the world in a way that some would describe as “neurodivergent.” In 2018, Mugabi was named one of 56 writers who has contributed to his native Uganda's literary heritage in the 56 years since independence by Writivism (East Africa's largest literary festival). Mugabi wants to be Jaden Smith when he grows up. In this interview we cover so many topics including the distraction of reading comics while bed-bound, falling in love with writing, identifying access needs as someone with a seizure disorder, chronic fatigue and other health conditions, living in a volatile body, toxic masculinity, why Cambodia has infrastructure that makes it a good place to have a physical disability, why haircuts can be painful for folks with sensory sensitivities, keeping a secret blog, racism in the American healthcare system and learning how to mask disability. https://www.mugabibyenkya.com/ @mugabs on IG and @mugabsb on twitter Kintsugi Therapist Collective Kintsugi Therapist Collective's Embodied Private Practice Cohort (EPPC), a year-long mentorship for clinicians who are beginning or revisioning private practice with a focus on embodiment and sustainability is now enrolling our September Cohort.

Over the years they evolved from a single shop, to nine stores, seven in Panama City, one in Boquete, and a new store in Washington DC. Benito had previously opened and run a successful restaurant, Maito, prior to Unido and is also a Panama Barista Championship 2nd place finisher. Since founding the company he has been tirelessly promoting the celebration and deeper understanding of the coffees of Panama to the world.  Today we will be talking all about this journey, what has made it successful, the lessons learned, and much more...

Meet Kelly Miller. Formerly a standout in the software industry, Miller became the Dean of Student Life for the Amazima School in Jinja, Uganda, and visits the Walking Through Samaria podcast to talk about what the Holy Spirit has done and is doing in the lives of people who are “going against culture to follow Jesus” and becoming examples in their own communities.   He has been married to Danlyn for 25 years, and though they have no biological children of their own, they became father and mother figures to their Ugandan students, who used to call him “Uncle Kelly.” He's undertaken 13 overseas mission trips, but upon rigorous self-examination questioned whether what he was doing was genuine service to God as opposed to a point of religious pride. Once he resolved that question, he says, he found himself on a “journey to unshakable faith and complete joy” which led him to write an upcoming book called “No Greater Joy.”   The key, Miller says, is being properly motivated.   “If somebody's motivation is for the other person's benefit, whatever we're doing — whether it's buying somebody's Starbucks coffee or just asking somebody, ‘Hey, what do you know about Jesus?' — you can do ministry everywhere, anywhere, anytime,” he says. “If we want to do something meaningful for others, meaningful for the Kingdom, and faith-building for us in our own walk with Christ, we have to do it with the strength of the Holy Spirit. If we try to do it on our own, we will fall into selfish motivations.”

Diese Arbeit in der Unterstützung und ihre Erfahrungen durch ihre spezielle Lebenssituation macht sie einzigartig in ihrer Tätigkeit als Coachin. Denn sich der Frage nach dem Sinn des eigenen Lebens zu widmen ist ja auch ein grosses Privileg. Sowohl für Kinder und Jugendliche als auch für erwachsene Frauen. Katja Rohde in Deutschland geboren und aufgewachsen. Die Schule hat ihr nicht wirklich gefallen, sie hat sie aber trotzdem absolviert. Das Sozialpädagogik Studium kam sehr natürlich zu ihr. Sie wusste trotzdem nicht, was sie anschließend tun wollte. Mit 25 Jahren ist sie ihrer Intuition gefolgt und ist für einen Freiwilligendienst nach Uganda gereist. Mittlerweile lebt sie dort seit 12 Jahren, hat ein Kinderhilfswerk gegründet und leitet es vor Ort.

John Samvura, Regional Director of GCC East Africa, joins a conversation with GCC's Director of International Ministries Corey Schmatjen. This episode of Launch is another audio track from an interview done in February 2022.  Link to John Samvura interiew in Vimeo. Episode Transcript Marty Duren:                Welcome to Launch, The GCC Podcast. I'm your host, Marty Duren, director of communications for the Great Commission Collective. We're a global network of churches partnering together to plant churches and strengthen leaders. On today's episode of Launch, you're going to hear GCC's director of International Ministries, Corey Schmatjen in conversation with John Samvura from Africa. John Samvura is a church planter. He is originally from Congo, but he is currently living in Rwanda. In addition to being a church planter, he is GCC's regional director in East Africa. This conversation was recorded via video at the lead conference in February, 2022. This is the audio track from that video, which you can see on our Vimeo channel. It will be linked in the show notes today. Corey:                          Well, welcome. My name is Corey Schmatjen and I serve with the Great Commission Collective as the director of International Ministries. And today I have with me, John Samvura. John is a church planter and our regional director of the Great Commission Collective in East Africa. John is from the Congo, but lives in Rwanda. And John, it is such a joy to have you here today. John:                            Thank you so much. . Corey:                          I was just reminiscing about our time together when we first met over one year ago in Rwanda providentially, got COVID, you know the story well? But yet God allowed us to really get to know one another over that time, get to know you, your wife Zawadi, your son, Jayden. And it was such a joy. And during that time, got to know you on more personal level and realize that, wow, the church planting runs the family. There is a legacy there, and maybe you start off just sharing a little bit about your history, particularly the legacy of your father in church planting in East Africa. John:                            Thank you so much, Corey. As you said, I was born in the Congo, raised in Rwanda, several other countries, and I'm Rwandan actually. I'm from Rwanda. That's where I am a Rwanda national. I live in Rwanda and work in East Africa, as you've said. My father Andres Samvura, was a pastor and a church planter in Rwanda, in Congo, and I grew up seeing him work, and by God's grace, he began the movement of the Church of the Nazarene. So wherever you see the Churches of the Nazarenes in Rwanda and influenced the churches of the Nazarenes in Congo, the Eastern part of Congo as well. And then now, a lot of churches that were well planted during his time, they're still there and they're still growing. And... Corey:                          How many churches? Cause, I mean, I know it's a lot. John:                            Yeah, it is a lot. Now they will get to about 300 churches like local churches, if you were to count local churches. But I have seen many of those churches actually begun in our living room. And as a child, we would move, plan the church, my father was involved in a training assessment and in making sure that things are happening and I saw the hand of God in doing that. And I really believe that God loves the church and the transformation of the world. God works through the church. I have high value for the church and I've seen the church being used to transform real lives and real communities over my lifetime. Corey:                          Now I remember hearing your story that you didn't necessarily want to be a church planter, but God moved on your heart and changed your heart to follow in the footsteps. So to speak of your father. John:                            Actually, I would say, God really grabbed me. I grew up trying not to be not only a church planter, but also not to be a pastor. In where I come from, you are likely going to do what your parents do. I tried not to because one of the reasons is we were moving a lot. And the more I made friends, we move. Whenever I had... I wanted to have my kids have real friends stay in a place. I don't mind moving, but I didn't mind moving even that time. I didn't want to be a pastor at that time because I thought I could do something else. I wanted to do much better. My brother who is actually one of our pastors as well in our network was to be the pastor. He went to do theology, I chose to do business information technology. I didn't want to be a pastor. I tried not, but God grabbed me and you can't run away from God, Corey. You really can't run away from God on my ordination service, I said, "I didn't want to be a pastor," and many people like, "How didn't you want to be a..." But because many of the pastors knew me, they knew how God really brought me and used different... Even as I was trying to run away, He was pursuing me. And He shaping me to this day. Now, I don't think I need something more than what I'm doing. I am so passionate about serving the church and seeing churches planted, not just any church, but Christ centered churches, Bible preaching churches. I am going to do this for as long as I'm still alive and breathing, I want to see to be part of what God is doing. This is God's doing. And I believe that this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the entire world as the testimony to the nations. And then the end will come. I am pursuing this, Corey. Corey:                          Wait, your heart is evident for church planting. I went to the States for some training. You surrendered to God, His call upon your life. Got some training, came back planted Harvest Mahoko. But your vision, as you mentioned, is so much greater than just planting a single church. You are helping facilitate and lead a church planting network in indigenous church planting network in East Africa. With that said, what would you say to the person who would say, "But John, there are so many churches in Africa. Sub-Sahara Africa, hasn't Africa been evangelized. Why do we need more churches?" John:                            You know what Corey, I am passionate about church planting. And we are not pursuing just any church. We are... As I told you, I am from Rwanda. And Rwanda is known for the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. And statistically, that country was over 80% Christian, but that was more of a movement. It lacked depth. It lacked personal convictions. It goes back to the history where the king became a Catholic and proclaimed the whole country as a Christian nation. And so what says the king, everybody goes. So it lacked the personal change, the personal transformation that a Christian life should be all about. And so we are pursuing making disciples and disciples who are Christ-like, who will walk with Christ, who will seek to glorify Him in all areas of life. By God's grace, we are planting and revitalizing churches in Rwanda. We have a Harvest Mahoko, as you said. It's growing really well. We have Kabare we have in several places in Rwanda, the churches that are really doing well. Now we also have ministries happening in Congo. We have churches in Masisi and Rutshuru, and we already have ready core groups in the city of Goma. And this city of Goma is a very influential city. That is where we have over 20,000 UN staff, and we want to be part of what God is doing. God is calling a people to Himself. Now, Uganda, we have Ernest Hategeka there with Christian Life Bible Church. And there, we are seeing God happen, doing amazing things in Uganda. And we have churches there and we want to plant more and revitalize the existing churches so they can be all about Christ and about His word. When you go to Kenya, we have core groups ready with Andy Ogeto in Kikuyu, we have Ken, we have a Muturi in Nyeri, I can't wait to see what God is going to do in East Africa. And you know what? Burundi as well. And I'm looking at getting to South Sudan because with all this region is known for a lot of, the Great Lakes region with a lot of wars and conflicts. And I believe Christ came so He can reconcile as to Himself and to His father, but also to one another. And we can have a family of Christ. I believe this is the right time for church planting, for church revitalization, not only Rwanda, in Africa alone, but throughout all the nations as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come. Corey:                          I love what you said, "You know our mission, well, planting churches and strengthening leaders." So what I hear is, we want to plant healthy local churches with strong leadership and strong elders and pluralities that can multiply and churches could be formed that are gospel centered and strong and have depth. And I know that is your heart, you're doing that. In just a recap. I mean, all these countries. So Rwanda, Congo, Uganda, Kenya, also Tanzania as well, Burundi. Yeah. John:                            Yeah, yes, and Burundi as well. In the Dar es Salaam, we have a very ready core group with the Florian Camara leading it. And we have visited different parts of Tanzania. The land is ready for Harvest and I can't wait to just be part of what God is doing because God has been working in those countries and He will continue to work. And we just want to be part of that. And it is His mission. We will do the great commission and we want to do it within the Spirit of the great Commandment. Yeah. Corey:                          Well, John, as you look at forming and growing this church planting network in the Great Lakes, East Africa region, what are some of the greatest challenges that you face? And number two, how can we pray for you in that endeavor? John:                            Yeah. We are praying, first of all, that you stand with us in prayers so that God will raise men who are committed and ready to move and to be used by God, and God is raising them, and thank you for praying. And we want to come to pray. The Bible says that the harvest is plentiful, but they harvest as a few that we asked the Lord of the harvest to bring more harvesters to His field. And we are praying and standing and looking and we want to steward out very well those opportunities. And also we are praying that we will get churches, individuals to stand with us. Many of these churches, they just need resourcing to be able to get their leaders trained and equipped well, and also resource to have places of worship to begin with, and we are planting strategically. We want to resource the churches that will multiply and be able to grow on their own. So we are looking at people to stand with us so we can be able to bring together these pastors at least once a year, so we can bring them together for more retraining, strategizing together, praying together, and also being more sharpened and equipped. We are praying that God will help bring people who will stand with us in these countries. In Rwanda, we want to build the churches lands available, and we are looking at resources to put up the buildings. In Uganda as well. Tanzania, Dar es Salaam is ready. The land is available. The core group is ready. We are praying that God will bring forth people to stand with us. So we can launch those churches in Kenya as well. Andy Ogeto in Kikuyu, Ken and Muturi. We are praying that God will bring forth a people who want to go out and with our resources to go and be part of what is God is doing. You may not be able to go physically as Corey, you are coming, but people can stand with us and resource us to go on the field. And we are looking at great harvest and God is in this. And it is His church. It is His mission and ours is to glorify Him and just be part of what He is doing. Corey:                          Well thank you John. Having been in an Africa, I do believe God is on the move and using you in significant ways. It is an honor to have you here with us.

Join Brent Anderson as he tells stories from his experiences in the Enchanted Mountains of the Alleghany River Valley, in rural Uganda, and in the challenges of health care in Sacramento. Brent opens up learnings gleaned from work with trauma, poverty, healing divisions, and equipping people with skills do dialogue across polarities, thus deepening relationships and strengthening communal resilience.   From Brent's interview: “As a chaplain…. I learned so much more about the movement of Spirit in and through the lives of my patients that were experiencing it in such a practical way. You know, from the powerful ways the Spirit moves in our vulnerability and our pain, and also what really is mattering to people; many graced moments of "the ordinary".  But I was also present to the utterly extraordinary. I got to hear over a hundred first-hand near-death experiences. As people would recount these vivid encounters when they reached kind of that brink of death and then have this experience of this luminous divine healing light, or encountering past family members. … The ministry was like an extreme sport. It was the extremes of trauma and the extremes of grace. Sometimes in the exact same encounter.”   “The area of town where our clinic and hospital are is an area where there's a lot of poverty where people have significant social challenges, higher rates of traumatic upbringings, and that also does include human trafficking. This clinic team, feeling the horror of the reality of human trafficking, wondered if they could do something more about it. And so fast forward … to just two years later, this team had successfully established the nation's very first medical home for human trafficking survivors; it's a key part now of a multi-agency process that wraps survivors with the kind of multiple layers of support. They found their passion in service and went on to literally write the book in trauma informed care for survivors of human trafficking. … Our physicians, our nurses, our medical assistants all coalesced around this ministry. And this medical home model for survivors of human trafficking is now being replicated nationwide.” “For me, the most important part of spiritual direction is Franciscan presence. It's so core to the work. The inner quiet and the prevalent attention creates spaciousness to welcome the soul of the other. I think of it as Franciscan hospitality, but at the level of soul. … I think that's the power of Franciscan presence in spiritual direction that helps people be open to the healing and the integrated work of the Spirit.”   “I think the Franciscan values of active peacemaking and tending in an integral ecology contains the wisdom that our world needs right now to bridge the divides that we have today. I'm stunned that all of our children go through an education system where they learn about science and history and math and a foreign language, but they never learn the language of the heart and how to deeply listen to the soul of another human being. And while trained chaplains and spiritual directors do this with Franciscan presence on a professional level, I think we'd live in such a more connected and loving place if even a critical mass of us had some training in how to hold this kind of space for each other.”   For a full transcript, please include episode number and email: fslfpodcast@fslf.org.   References: St. Bonaventure University: https://www.sbu.edu/ and Mount Irenaeus Franciscan Mountain Community: https://mountainonline.org/   Franciscan School of Theology (FST): https://www.fst.edu/ ; FST was previously in Berkeley, part of the Graduate Theological Union: https://www.gtu.edu/schools-and-centers#schools   Alleghany River and the Enchanted Mountains: https://enchantedmountains.com/page/about ;  for some comic relief in this substantial conversation, rope swing over a river: https://datagenetics.com/blog/september42014/index.html   Semester at Sea: https://www.semesteratsea.org/   Spiritual Exercises, Jesuit 30-day retreat: https://thejesuitpost.org/2021/09/jesuit-101-the-spiritual-exercises-the-heart-of-the-jesuits/   Greccio, the story of the first live nativity, initiated by Saint Francis, in Greccio Italy, 1 Celano 30:84-87: https://www.franciscantradition.org/francis-of-assisi-early-documents/the-saint/the-life-of-saint-francis-by-thomas-of-celano/695-fa-ed-1-page-254   “If you want peace, work for justice” – a quote by Pope Paul VI.

Olive earned her PhD in Anthropology and Masters in Public Health (MPH) at Northwestern University in 2014. Her dissertation research explored how transgender people in Kampala, Uganda, balanced visibility, and risk in the context of Uganda's 2008 Anti-Homosexuality Bill. Olive's MPH thesis examined barriers to HIV prevention and treatment services for transgender Ugandans. One of her proudest accomplishments was in 2014-2015 when she carried out fieldwork with Oxfam's response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa sparking key changes in their community engagement strategies. In 2016, Olive was awarded an ACLS Public Fellowship to conduct research and evaluation with the International Rescue Committee. At IRC, she collaborated with research and design partners to identify and find solutions to barriers that refugees face when resettling in the U.S. In 2019, Olive pivoted to design anthropology in global tech, and has carried out research with companies like Google, Facebook, and Etsy.

Ndio  maana nikaamua kukimbia nyumbani, na nilihisi kuwa nimemuumiza mama yangu.”  Baadaye baba mzazi wa Sarah alikubali kuwa bora wayamalize.   “Wahusika waje nyumbani na alitaka walimpe mahari ya shilingi milioni 10  sawa na dola zaidi ya 2,700, na wanichukue kwa kuwa hanitaki tena. Mambo yalikuwa magumu sana. Na huku kijana alinikataa akisema hakusiki. Niliona kwamba moyo wangu hauwezi kuvumilia tena.”  Anicy Alezuyo ambaye ni mshauri rika chini ya programu ya UNICEF anasema, “alitaka kutoka ujauzito kwa kuwa kuna rafiki alimwambia anaweza kumsaidia kupata fedha za kutoa ujauzito. Lakini fedha hazikupatikana. Ndipo akaja kwangu.”  Kijana aliyempa ujauzito naye alimshauri atoe ujauzito lakini alikataa, halikadhalika baba yake mzazi alitaka atoe lakini Anicy alimshauri kuwa asitoe na hatimaye alijifungua na wiki mbili baada ya operesheni amerejea shuleni na analea pia mtoto wake.   Sasa Sarah ana ndoto, “nataka mtoto wangu akue kwenye upendo na si machungu kama mimi. Nataka nisome hadi Chuo Kikuu bora ili nifikie ndoto  yangu ya kuwa daktari.”  Kwa mujibu wa UNICEF, Anicy pamoja na waelimishaji rika wengine 20 wilayani Arua nchini Uganda wanatembelea shule kuelimisha vijana balehe kuhusu afya ya uzazi, fursa za maisha na kusalia shuleni.
