United Mission Church Life Ministry
Bumalakha Village, Bunazushi, Uganda
The church and ministry is located in the eastern region of Mt. Elgon in the Bududa District of Uganda. The pastor was born in a family that already had eight boys and no girls. His mother was hoping to deliver a bouncing baby girl for her ninth pregnancy. Instead she gave birth to her ninth son. This compelled his mother to deny him because she was not having another boy to raise. His father begged her to take care of the child saying, "It was not my fault but it was God's plan without any of man's influence." So Wambede Samuel Rogers grew up under his parents Mr. Wambede Wilson and Mrs. Nabulwala Angather.
At the age of nine years old the father died leaving nine boys being raised by a single parent. The family endured great hardship that left them in conditions of poverty where there was not enough to sustain a family of ten and Sam became very sick for lack of nutrition. There was a powerful man of God in the area named John Bosco, who came from the country of Holland through the Churches of God. He spoke prayers over young Samuel and they boy recovered from his sickness. In 1991 Samuel confessed Jesus Christ as his personal savior. The next year he joined a praise and worship team under the call of God and in 1993 Samuel became a youth leader of their church.
In December 1993 the voice of the Lord whispered to Samuel while calling his name and said, "Samuel, I want to make a great church work in you." Being young, he was terrified and overcome with fear. While have a metal argument about this dream he received, the voice whispered to him a second time saying, "Fear not because this incredible word of God. I knew you while you were still a fetus in your mother's womb." He was still arguing in my mind over these things until he was given scripture from the book of Isaiah 49:1-2.
1. Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. 2. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me. .
As he focused upon this scripture the voice called him again and said, "Lend me your ears you who pursue the righteous and who seeks the Lord just as it is written in the book Isaiah 51:1.
In 1994 Wambede Samuel Rogers began building the vision God had given him. He started the Untied Mission Church Life Ministry with four people in a new area of Bunazushi called Bumalakha Village. Pastor Samuel had the new ministry continue in prayer and fasting for one week as God had instructed him to do. Their testimony in those early days was, "God performed his wonders by healing his people, casting out demons as the ministry expanded in various areas." They were able to expand into the Bunasakha Village in the Manafwa District; into the sub county of Bwkokho in the Bwkhokho Parish; into the sub counties of Shinsuni Butilu, Bududa and Buchilokholo in the Bududa District; the sub county of Nyondo in the Kabwagasi Parish; and the sub county of Mbale town in Nauyo, were they are presently keeping their headquarters stationed.
Samuel is married to Mukimba Rachael and they have been blessed to have four boys and four girls.
The ministry has been met with many challenges while planting the other branches throughout the region. One of Pastor Samuel's greatest challenges came in May of 2000 when robbers invaded the church one evening after a Bible study. They attacked Pastor Samuel, beating him up with intent to kill him. A local defense and crime prevention group found him still breathing and took him to the main hospital in Mbale. The assault left him with a damaged kidney. After many years of different intense treatments in Keny, India and Uganda, and now having problems with his heart, Pastor Samuel was praying to the Lord in 2012 when the Most High God worked in power to restore health in his body. When everyone thought he would die, God in his mercy and grace continues to maintain Pastor Samuel body, giving him strength and power through the Holy Spirit to walk in renewed health.
In October 2016 the church administrator for the ministry, Weleeba Kenneth, made contact with Bless Ministries Mobile USA through our Facebook pages. He sent us an email and we started the process of becoming partners with them in ministry though they were under the leadership of Bishop Marabu Handson in Nairobi, who is one of our ministry partners in Kenya. You can go to his webpage by selecting Kenya in the menu above.
They first started receiving our certificates of license and establishment letter through Bishop Marabu Handson in Nairobi, Kenya.
It is the vision of the United Mission Church Life Ministry to continue developing the orphanage ministry by building facilities to care for the children; build up primary and secondary schools to educate the children in order to equip them with skills for maintaining and developing good jobs and business. Their desire is to continue establishing churches around the world. It is not enough to just build churches in their region, but they are wanting to reach out to the world and establish churches everywhere. They want to continue building the infrastructure of their communities by providing social services, financial aid and of course build hospitals and clinics to educate and provide good health care for all the areas they minister to.
In January 2018 our ministry opened the Manthano School of Ministries in Mbale, Uganda. We have are finishing our first year of classes ending November 2018. We started with 25 students and we still have 23 after one year. It has been a challenge but God is with us and we are capable of doing anything through Jesus who strengthens us.
