I'm a dreamer and continue to dream of what can and will be. 
Expecting great things from God; attempting great things for God.

On Starting a $3.7m Capital Campaign.
 
Five years ago when God called us to this work of "educating and inspiring servant leaders for Christ” it seemed like a grand calling.  Our aim was to build a school that supported missionaries and Christians in Kampala by providing safe, dynamic, encouraging, enriching education that would inspire students and families to transform this country for Christ.
 
 
But when we opened the school doors in 2012 with only 17 students in an old house and more or less broke, the whole idea seemed suddenly quite farfetched.  And yet by God's grace, Acacia not only survived these first years, it has thrived and in ways we could scarcely have imagined. 
It occurred to me at some point that if God is providing for us, as he seems to be, and if he has called us to work here, as I believe he has, then my prayer is that we don't diminish his work by the smallness of our dreams.
 
May God give us the courage to act as a faithful children in his service, carrying out his work with abundant expectations.
 
Today we have 244 students in kindergarten to twelfth grade, families from all over the globe serving Christ in Kampala.  We are meeting in three single-family houses that have been remodeled into classrooms, offices, libraries and all the spaces of learning.  These houses work pretty well, consider they were built as houses but they are now obviously bursting at the seams. 
Our hope is now to build a new $3.7 million K-12 campus.  You can well imagine how this kind of investment will help us better serve missionaries and others, extending God's kingdom in Kampala, leaving an asset which will be enjoyed for generations to come.
 
If God places on your heart a nagging and unshakable urge to give to Acacia, please don't ignore that.  You are welcome to share this ministry with us.  If not, if you just want to watch and see what God does, please stay tuned!   If God is real and if God has called us here, let us enjoy his boundless grace together. 
 
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine, to him be the glory both now and forever.
