Dr. Juventine Emuku
Dr. Juventine Emuku was an up and coming medical doctor headed for private practice in the Ugandan capitol of Kampala when the Lord got a hold of his heart. He left the affluence and promise of great wealth to go and live in a tent in the bush of Northern Uganda. Working in an area that used to be home to the most ruthless dictator in Uganda Idi Amin and was 95% Muslim. These were radical Muslims who had chased out all the Christian missionaries in the 1970’s. Since that time Juventine working with a ministry called Safe Harbor has taken what was once a one room clinic with no medicine and no personnel and turned it into a busy hospital complete with a maternity ward and operating theatre. Where once more than 50% of the children died before age 5, children now thrive and grow. More importantly, Dr. Juventine has become Pastor Juventine as he now pastors a growing church in the area, Calvary Chapel of Midigo. He now works with another ministry called Promise Child (www.promisechild.org) that has helped to further build the church, Christian School and sponsors hundreds of children in the area. Dr. Juventine’s wife Elizabeth is also a doctor working at her husband’s side. Please pray for Dr. Juventine, his wife Dr. Elizabeth and their children, Jamima and Jonathan. Donations can be made through Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa here. Using missionary name/code: Emuku, Juventine.
