Presentation by our longtime missionary Jonathan Mayo, founder of Universities and Education Ministries in Africa (based in Uganda). He has been a missionary in Africa for over 30 years! Jonathan gives a short presentation for us about his interesting experiences out in the mission field (as presented at Oakwood United Methodist Church, Lubbock Texas).

Jonathan relates a few of the many stories about how Universities and Education Ministries in Africa has helped transform lives, nations, and countries. He tells how the mission in Africa wouldn’t be possible without prayers.

Even before Universities and Education Ministries in Africa, Jonathan was involved in mission work in Africa when he was a youngster.

Here is a quote from https://www.wgm.org/missionary/mayo

Our vision is to seek Jesus first so that through His holy love, lives, schools, and communities will be transformed. As we seek Him, share His love, and teach His Word, He reveals more of Himself to us. What a gracious God we serve!

Over the years on the mission field, God has given us the opportunity to do many types of ministry. However, in every country or situation we’ve been in, we’ve always found ourselves involved in working with students in some way. God is now allowing us to focus full-time on inviting students to Jesus, discipling them, and sending them out to impact the world. Our passion is to disciple and mentor students who will transform their world for Jesus Christ.

God has allowed us to experience one of His movements through students in Africa. University ministries have rapidly expanded from a handful of students in Uganda to students in Kenya and Tanzania with a vision to reach into more countries. A concentration on discipleship has resulted in more than 800 students meeting weekly in discipleship groups. We’ve seen students reaching out to students in different schools and reaching out to children. Many have come to know Jesus as their Savior, and many more are being discipled through different groups in various schools and universities. We desire to see a generation of transformed students who will take the whole gospel to the whole world.

God has brought the nations to us. Dozens of countries are represented in the schools where student ministries have been taking place. God is placing these students in influential positions in society as they return to their home countries. Some who have graduated are now serving as lawyers, pastors, doctors, politicians, missionaries, and teachers. The potential for their impact is limitless!
