About Us

    Pastor Billy Bope was called to be a preacher at a young age, and he was saved at the age of 6 years old. When Billy was 7 years old, he received a vision for the Great Rift Valley. All through his teenage years Billy lived for Christ, setting the proper example. He went on to serve as a youth minister from the ages of 18 to 25, at which time he decided to pursue ministering and attend Bible college. While pastoring for a church in Winamac, Indiana, Billy received his ordination through Dr. Sumrall. During his time pastoring in Winamac, Indiana, he was led to travel to Uganda on mission trips.

In 1997, while walking the streets of Uganda, he noticed children everywhere. Wondering why they were not in school, Billy talked to an Ugandan friend. He explained that the children had lost their parents to AIDS or tribal wars; therefore, they did not have the funds to go to school. His heart went out to the children, and he realized that something had to be done. 

     As they continued walking, they entered a village where a set of twins were about to be stoned. The twins had lost both of their parents, had no relatives, and the village did not want to take care of them. He could not believe what was going to happen! Billy approached the elders and asked if they would hand the twins over to him. Gaining their permission, Billy removed the children from the village and returned to the home where he was staying. With the help of his friend, they found homes for the twins. Billy returned to the US with a heavy burden for the children of Uganda. That's when the sponsorship program was birthed, to feed and educated the children of Uganda. One by one people began to sponsor children allowing us to make a difference one child at a time!
