Gulu, Uganda Leadership

Carole Ward – Founder/Director

The Lord’s harvest fields have been part of my life since before I was born! My maternal grandparents were missionaries in China for 30 years, and my mother was born there. When the Communists invaded Shanghai, my grandparents and their children were taken to a prison camp. They were later released as exchange prisoners of war.

In 1960, my parents went to the Philippines as Bible translators. For 48 years they served the Lord as Bible translators. Growing up as a missionary child in the Philippines helped shape the longing of my heart to help the poor, the oppressed, widows, orphans, and those who are victims of war and suffering. I came back to the United States as a teenager, received my nursing degree, and also began therapeutic foster parenting for emotionally disturbed and traumatized children. I continued with that ministry for the next twenty years. In addition, I worked as a nurse in home health and hospital settings. I eventually opened a nursing care center for patients with Alzheimer’s disease. I also served on my home church staff in administration for several years in the capacities of leadership training, evangelism, discipleship coordination, and citywide prayer ministries.

In 2002, the Lord opened the door for me to serve in Uganda. I was the interim principal of a Bible College in southern Uganda and had the oversight of 42 portable Bible schools in five east African countries. During that year of service, God began to answer the cry of my heart, “Lord, let me lay my life down for you where no one else wants to go to do what no one else wants to do.” The doors opened for me to go into war-torn northern Uganda, and there I found the place I had been praying for. I fell in love with the Acholi people and began to see God’s vision for bringing his glory out of ashes in that country.
