A  Christ-centered secondary school in Jinja district has testified about 23 construction workers, both men and women who received Christ at this institution and have been baptized in the Nile River.

Staff at The Amazima School, that cares for vulnerable children and families in Uganda saw God move mightily at their construction site, when 23 men and women from eMi Design desired to learn more about following Jesus.

“After volunteering their lunch hour to learn more about baptism, weeks later this same group publicly declared their faith in Christ and were baptized in the Nile River,” the institution, founded by American Missionary and book author, Katie Davis Majors remarked on 1st November.

“We are grateful for a God who shows up in constructions zones” they added.

Mark Guthrie, Amazima’s Country Director and Headmaster at The Amazima School, testified that their construction is being completed by Engineering Ministries International (EMI), a non-profit Christian development organization made up of architects, engineers and design professionals who donate their skills to help children and families around the world step out of poverty and into a world of hope.

“Every space, every brick, every angle has been designed purposefully for what we are doing for our mission for these kids. Our students are learning to think critically… not what to think, but how to think. True wisdom is the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to whatever situation they’re in as God would apply it. The buildings are certainly not an end but a means to the kids getting the tools that they need to have knowledge, understanding, and wisdom,” he shared.
