Strengthening Families in Uganda | Meet Constance and Obed
Constance is a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur and a resilient woman of faith who will not give up on her family. Her leadership and willingness to become involved with Father’s Family, our local church partner’s family-strengthening program, has led to inspiring transformation and redemption in her family:
“Father’s Family asked what our dream was for our family, God revealed it to us: to become a God-fearing family that has well-educated children and increased income. Every day we pray for our dream to be achieved before we sleep.” — Constance
Not only did Constance and her husband, Obed, see redemption in their marriage and family, but they are now leaders and forces for transformation in their community.
Once a pilot participant, Constance is now the chairperson of the Father’s Family committee at their church. And after so much success with the farming techniques they learned through the program, the family was able to acquire a second plot of land, expanding their farm by three times. Their neighbors, amazed at the quality of their crops, started asking them how their fields were yielding so much.
They told their neighbors about the Father’s Family program, and they also started hosting weekly farming lessons on their land!
“I love that Obed is now a redeeming voice in the community, speaking against alcoholism and is pro family. I love that the local church wrapped around this family. They didn’t wait until the family disintegrated. They were there at the perfect moment to help hold this family together.” — Jake Barreth, Director of International Orphan Care
