Holding forth the word of life

   Ministry Description

                 We have a ministry to the Pygmies.

                                                 Every ministry has an evangelistic purpose.

There are many orphan children because of AIDS
so we have a ministry to the orphans.

See our Project H.O.P.E. page to see our orphanage project.

We have school ministries.
We run radio and church planting ministries.
Because of a bad Runyankore Bible translation we have a Bible translation ministry.
We operate both a local Bible Institute and a mobile institute where we take the institute
to the village and train the men in their village.

Bryan and Cheri Stensaas are Independent Baptist Missionaries working presently in the
country of Uganda, East Africa. They are sent out from a great church, Calvary Baptist
Church in Marshall, Missouri.  They are proud to have Brother Steve Raglin as their
Pastor and friend.

Bryan received Christ in the military in Rota, Spain and Cheri received Christ at
Highland Park Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee where Bryan was attending
Bible College. They began their ministry in 1979 as missionaries to the military, starting
churches for military families outside of US military bases in Europe. Bryan began
working with Dr. Edward Woodfield in Torrejon, Spain and later pastored the church
there. While in Spain, Bryan and Cheri helped start other churches throughout the country.

After eight years they returned to the states and pastored the Faith Baptist Church in
Sedalia, Missouri for two and one half years. It was there that the Lord directed them
to Africa where they have been since 1994. They live in Mbarara, Uganda which is in
the south western part of Uganda.  Bryan has started several churches throughout
Uganda and is presently the pastor of the Independent Baptist Church of Mbarara which
he also started.

Bryan and Cheri have both taught in the Bible Institutes which were started to train the
Ugandan men and women to serve the Lord.  Cheri also teaches the "Women of Faith
Bible study and has her own 5 day a week radio broadcast called "Ladies Tea Time."  
Cheri has also been involved in teaching children's Sunday School classes.

One of the highlights of their ministry is Christian Radio.  Bryan started three Christian
radio stations in Uganda.  Calvary Radio in Soroti and Life Radio in Mbarara and
Way of Life Radio in Kanungu.  He is currently the Director of two of these stations
where the Gospel is proclaimed throughout the Abankole region 18 1/2 hours a day.   

This is a group of men I am teaching in a radio repair shop in Bwizibwera.  Sometimes
we even have a Muslim attend.
