WHO IS DAVID KNOWLTON?
Get to know and learn more about me.
Hello, my name is David Knowlton. I am a Ugandan, born again, and electrician by professional, guitarist and as well as, praise and worship leader. Thanks to God who has given us big manifested dream – Jesus and Me Children’s Ministries, which when fully grown will bless many people. I also thank God that he has placed me in such a dynamic and growing country. The potential of Uganda to be a leader in Africa is clearly evident. Allow me to share with you a little bit how Jesus and me CM idea birthed in me.
Previously I worked with some projects dealing with children . Whenever I am moving, I easily get attracted to the children and what they do usually captures my attention. Sometime back as I would be moving along streets or slums and other places , I would feel like doing something for them. The situation which these children are in strikes my heart deep and I would feel like having a special independent NGO that would look at all children no matter whether they are orphans or not. When I discussed this idea with some people they told me that it was difficult to do something like that unless when I have lots of money and cars. For sure I also knew how hard it was and I got discouraged somehow. Still on and on , I would feel that strong passion for doing it and I did not give up praying. I had one thing in mind “If I am to head a special independent ministry I must first have legal document” so that I / we don’t get into constant problems with the city authorities or the government.
One day I woke up and thought that it was the right time to go for it , I just wanted to do my part and God would also do His part. I said “if this is the will of God it will go through but if it is not then nothing will happen”. I shared the idea with some people , they backed me up and we formed the constitution work plan and other paper work and we were successfully registered as a non-profit / non governmental organization and this is how we know that it is the will of God for us to run JESUS AND ME CM.
I know that we are just at the grass root level or early beginning and we still have along way to go but I am not worried because I believe that God is in control. Our intended target for our goals and objectives is to build a primary school, children’s recreation centre and a hospital , We shall be very grateful when this goal is achieved. If you don’t mind , you can read my driving thought!
