Meet the Go and Tell Team

What Gets Me Excited About Being a Part of Go and Tell:

My husband and I were heartbroken by the many orphaned children and the children being abused by their families in the area. We started off cooking food for the children, counseling them, and playing with them. Our desire to help turned into the bigger vision of KidsCare and now we are so excited to have partners who will help us save these children. We can’t wait to see all that God will do through us.

My Go-To Verse:

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

~Jeremiah 29:11

What Gets Me Excited About Being a Part of Go and Tell:

I love the ministry of Go and Tell. I am blown away by what God has accomplished in a few short years. The women who lead this ministry are the most faithful, tenderhearted women I know. Their vision is clear and they have stayed committed to it. Their values resonate with mine and I believe in what they have done, are doing, and want to do in the future. I hope that after visiting this web site, your heart will be touched by God and that you will decide to join us.

Director & Secretary

What Gets Me Excited About Being a Part of Go and Tell:

From the very beginning, Go and Tell wanted to encourage and support a locally owned and operated ministry that knew the needs of the people better than foreign missionaries. The model developed from writings of former President of World Vision, Richard Stearns, who in his book, The Hole in our Gospel, encouraged support of ministers of local Churches worldwide. 

My Go-To Verse:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

~Luke 4:18-19

From the moment I met the team from Go and Tell in Uganda back in 2013, I have been praying for God to continue His great work through them. I have watched from afar for so many years, and to now have the opportunity to work alongside them is a tremendous blessing. I am excited for this next generation of children who have been so greatly blessed by God’s Hands through Go and Tell, and excited for the future generations as God continues to use this organization for His Glory.
