Dear Ministry Partners:
Thank you for the passion, commitment and generous giving towards our ministry programs and activities this past year. 2016 was a record year for contributions to Vangrace Compassion Ministries, Inc. (VCMI ) as well as successful completion of several projects that will help us to be stronger in the future.
Since our formation, Vangrace Compassion Ministries has been a distinctive in transforming lives of Ugandan East African Orphans, Vulnerable Children and Impact Communities through Church and Missionary Programs, and the values that underpinned our establishment have been an important guide during that time. This year marks the 13th anniversary of the ministry’s founding in 2003 , providing opportunities for ministry, missions, orphan care and community outreach.
Perhaps the most fundamental aspect of the ministry in our 13 years has been its deep and unwavering commitment to orphan child support and life changing missions. Since our founding 13 years ago, weset ourselves apart from most comparable nonprofit organizations by our commitment to the supporting of orphans and vulnerable children from all backgrounds. Children from the streets, abandoned, mistreated, sexually abused all have found sanctuary and been transformed through our life changing programs. Today 279 children are being helped and have found hope for a new beginning.
As per our vision “A Unified Generation In Christ Transforming Lives and Impacting African Communities”, This remains our standard in every field represented in ministry. Our success in all areas depends upon the commitment of ministry partners who recognize the important role they play in the life of each child in our care, our ministry, inheritance and future.
I am so grateful for the dedication that our ministry partners have demonstrated through their giving and prayers this past year. From all of us here at Vangrace Compassion Ministries, we say thank you, Merry Christmas and lets all have a wonderful New Year!
Yours in Ministry
Pastor Ivan Ssewankambo
