Location: Uganda, Africa
Ministry Focus: Laura’s heart and passion is in community-based ministry. Her desire is to come alongside young mothers and teenage girls in pregnancy crisis in Uganda, advocating, equipping, and empowering them to discover and develop the gifts, skills and abilities God has placed in them.
Laura will be heading to Uganda as a response to the call of God on her life to work with the young mothers of Uganda, to serve under PAG – The Pentecostal Assemblies of God-Uganda. She will be working with the local church and community engagement programs within PAG to respond with the local church to the need of teenage mothers in their communities.
Mission Statement: To create a safe haven and support system to young, pregnant women where, through God's unconditional love and grace, they can discover their value and purpose.
"Empower a Girl, Transform Her Future"
Ministry History: Laura has previously lived and volunteered in Uganda at Watoto Child Care Ministries at Baby Watoto. She served on two short-term trips and as a mid-termer for one year through PAOC International Missions STM Network. While serving in Uganda God began to plant a seed in Laura’s heart and a vision for a ministry responding to the needs of young mothers and teenage girls in pregnancy crisis in Uganda.
Laura attended Master’s College and Seminary in 2010 and completed her Bachelor of Theology in the Youth Ministry program, she returned to Uganda for her 4th year internship before graduating in 2014. After graduating in 2014 Laura has since been working at an organization called Christian Horizons working with people who experience disabilities to achieve their goals, while promoting and nurturing a community of belonging where their God-given gifts are valued and respected.
