Home For Orphans

Campaign Created by: Belton New Life Ministries

The funds from this campaign will be received by .

Goal: USD $25,000
Raised: USD $ 17,064

The Fundraising Crusade has begun! Elioenai Children Hope Orphanage in Kampala, Uganda is in desperate need of a new and safe home. Mugambe Eric is the director of the orphanage. Brother Mugambe and his mother work tirelessly to support, teach, feed, clothe, and disciple almost 50 children in their orphanage. However, it does not stop there. In their remote village, they support many vulnerable families and their children. A community that experiences extreme hardships as a way of life.


The orphanage is currently renting the property they live on. Several people try to bully them off the land because they want the land for themselves. The building is in great danger of collapsing during rainstorms and the children sleep on dirt floors covered by blankets. It is by God's Good grace that they are still safe. Thank you, Jesus! All proceeds (minus advertising costs and crowdfunding fees) will be used to buy land, build a home, and buy beds and furniture for all the children, as well as farming equipment. Furthermore, the funds will be used to feed and clothe the children. This will also allow the orphanage to do many ministries in the surrounding villages.


We know that nothing is too big for our God. All the riches belong to Him. As it says in Philippians 4:19


"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus."


We are planting a seed in God's Kingdom and God is calling us to be good stewards of our finances. What better way to be a good steward than to invest into a ministry that is making disciples of these children; effectively building God's kingdom.


We have formed a committee and are looking for motivated volunteers to help in this endeavor. Whether it is spreading the word, helping at events, donating, or just offering prayer through fasting or other means, your help is greatly appreciated.


For the sake of being transparent, two individuals have borrowed $5000 ($1000 for advertising $4000 for supplies) to help kick off the fundraising and get much needed supplies to the orphans and vulnerable families. This of course will have to be paid back first, but we know that God will provide more abundantly.


Our goal stages are going to be $25k, $50K, $75K, and $100K+. It is our hope that God will provide them with Land, a new home, beds and clothes, and proper farming equipment to help them continuously provide for themselves and their village.


Proverbs 3:27-28

27 Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.

28 Do not say to your neighbor, "Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow"-- when you now have it with you.


Our church address is 706 East 4th Avenue, Belton, Texas 76513

We at Belton New Life Fellowship would like to thank everyone who have been donating to help get these children a new home. THANK YOU Angie Dittfurth for your recent donation! With the proceeds we received from the benefit last year, the ECHO children were able to purchase 1/4 acre of land near clean water and electricity, as well as being close to town. They still have a long ways to go to build a home though. They have plans of turning the property into a small farm to help raise money to build the home. Thank you to those who have been giving regularly. God bless.

"Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:47

Holiday Season/Christmas Community Outreach Celebration

Good Evening Church Family!

Brother Mugambe, the Director of the Elioenai Children Hope Orphanage, has put together a budget for their holiday season and Christmas party for the children and community. This last year has been very hard on them because of inflation. Inflation has hit them much harder than it hit us here in the US because of the invasion of Ukraine and other economic policies within their country.

This is the one real celebration they can have this year so please consider giving as much as you can toward the budget. Your prayers will help too. Last year we only met about half of their budget. Thank you all so much for helping to support these children.

To some, this $2400 budget seems like they are asking for a lot. But this is less than half of an average family of 4's monthly expenses here in the United states. The orphanage is home to more than 70 children. This is the only celebration the orphanage has all year round. To give back to God in praise and worship, and also feeding and serving their community. This budget does not provide gifts to the children as we see it. Their greatest gift is a full belly, not toys. A pair of shoes and clothing. Please consider giving, even if it is a prayer of faith. God will make a way.


Fully Registered and Legal Orphanage!

This year (2022) Brother Mugambe was able to officially register his orphanage, but he had to change the name slightly from Ebenezer Children Hope Orphanage to Elioenai Children Hope Orphanage because the name Ebenezer was already taken. Elioenai means "Toward Him are mine eyes, or to Him are my fountains, or I look to God". You are still donating to the same orphanage that we have been promoting.

ECHO Property Purchase

Good evening church family. We wanted to share a praise report. Ebenezer Children Hope Orphanage has closed the deal on their new property. It is ¼ of an acre near good water, electricity, schools and closer to the city! They received a very large discount because of the service they have done for the church and local community. It is perfect for their needs and will give them an amazing increase in their quality of life and safer from diseases. They will not have to travel for miles to get safe water while carrying massive jugs. Thank you, God and everyone that helped make this possible. This is what Mugambe said:

“Hallelujah Hallelujah thank you Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Am so glad for you he has done glory be to Him. But for two days brother Joshua I have been so busy and fixed, but we saw God answering our prayers. Thank for fighting a fight of Faith church family and we are so appreciative for everything. Yesterday we were able to get good land near water and electricity, the roads are not so bad. Its bigger compared to the rest of the places we have been moving all along and of best price. Thank you, Jesus Christ. One of the local churches linked us to an old family friend who gave us this land measurements 100ft × 100ft (all squared) at a good price of $9350 and it will be for us for all generations. They have approved in the local community. 

But compared to the other people who had their personal land they were giving us at a very heavy high prices 50ft × 100ft and 100ft ×100ft they were double the price. And we came down to our knees. But God is so good he answered our prayers and a person gave us Land because I have been working with the local church in all situations and as the Lord enabled us. I see a big blessing. Thank you, Jesus. We are praying for you all church family members all hope everything is pretty good there. God bless you all”
