Trust Boys Home
A home of
RESCUE, REHABILITATION & REDEMPTION
for boys living on the street.
The Boys Trust Home is a safe haven for boys who are living on the street in Mbarara, Uganda and want to leave the street life of desperation and hopelessness. Over 200 boys have come through Trust Boys Home since opening. There are many testimonies of healing, redemption and restoration in the lives of these boys.
We help these boys by standing in the gap to provide food, necessities and educational opportunities. We are currently sending seven of the boys to school and others are attending welding training in Kampala. When the boys are on holiday from school, they join the band at the Holy Spirit Fire Church at the Rock of Living Water home site in Rwenjeru Village.
Stuart is one of our newest boys. After trying to survive on the streets, he is now thriving at Trust Boy’s Home and doing well in school. We are praying with Stuart for his mom’s salvation so one day they may be reconciled.
Rock of Living Water Ministries is blessed to partner with Pastor Willy Tumwine as well as Dennis and Rebecca Muleme to help see that this street boys ministry at Trust Boys Home continues to grow and thrive.
19 years ago Pastor Willy was led to open a home for boys who were living on the street, he too grew up as a street boy. He shared with us that he tried several times to launch this ministry to street boys but there were many challenges that kept it from happening.
In 2005 the Lord made a way to open, hope was alive. He prayed to the Lord for someone to come along that would be able to take his vision of caring for these boys to love and lead well. Two years later in 2007, the Lord brought Dennis and Rebecca. Dennis had a big heart to
love these boys just the way they were;
broken, dangerous and addicted.
The love that these boys received began to transform their hearts and lives. Through music, Dennis began to connect with these boys. Dennis is a worshiper and a musician so he began sharing his God given talents with them. As they began to learn how to play different instruments, they formed a band.Some of the boys are now teaching music, others are traveling with the band to minister at different places, some are taking the initiative to lead and help the younger ones, and others are called to help cook, clean and manage the food storehouse, but all of them have a place.
As new ones come in, it is a beautiful thing to watch the Lord use Willy, Dennis and Rebecca to love on these boys, witnessing time and again transformation unfold. We thank God for the opportunity to partner with a ministry that is modeling the power of love, redemption and salvation that is only offered through Jesus.
