What on earth are you here for?

Have you ever tried asking your self this question? If yes, did you find an answer or not? If no, please mind about that question because to live with no direction or purpose is as good as walking aimlessly.

We count it a blessing to walk this journey because we know that God is guiding us everyday. In everything we do or say wherever we go, it’s for a purpose.

Visiting and praying for the elderly people at Agape clinic


A life that inspires, motivates, transforms, directional, and visionary is a life with purpose. Such a life will be a vessel of love, hope, and comfort to those that come in contact with it.

On Tuesday 13th February after a life changing concert at Sakae Bible Church in Nagoya, the children went to Agape clinic to encourage, comfort, and pray with the patients there. It was life transforming for these elderly women and men to see young souls from Uganda carry a lot of passion and grace to them. The doctors said that we caused some to smile so much who had not smiled in a while. Well the children prayed and sang for the elderly and there was a cloud of joy in everybody’s heart as though it was not a clinic.

His Call Church


Wednesday 14th February, we fell into the city of joy and love from young people called His Call Church Nagoya.


Time here was indeed so nice and full of energy.

on Thursday, we travelled from Yokohama to Kato area at Midorino Christ Church where we found a group of people waiting for us with a delicious meal and drinks. This was headed by Pastor Marie and Nozoim.


Meeting the high official delegates of Japan Tokyo 

Friday 16th February, God made us trod in the most high places of Japan in Tokyo. Not only did we trod there but we had an opportunity of ministering to them.

It’s amazing how God connects his plans for us. “We are all created to live big and unique, but this is only found in God.” As for us, we are already gladly experiencing it. Nothing in this world happens by mistake, everything is a step that leads us to another. The concert we had in Okayama in the big arena was watched by one of the high officials and politician in Japan, Mr. Ichirō Isawa, and he was so inspired by our story that he organised through the governor of Japan for us to minister to these high delegates.

God raised us high and He also by his grace enabled us to inspire and motivate them with our story.

Later that evening we had a mini concert on the streets just to make people aware of the concert we had at Midorino church in Yokohama and turned out to be an echo of inspiration on the street.


Saturday 17th February, we had a concert in Midorino church and every soul from young to the old one were hyped with the joy of the Lord.


Sunday 18th February, we had four half concerts at  lifehouse Tokyo.


This is a very youthful and young church which so much reminds us of our church back home. We enjoyed every bit of our presence with them. Concerts were life transforming as one of the pastors confessed that their young people were inspired and motivated as they had now witnessed the testimony of God’s goodness in reality. Indeed the touch of God was felt.

Day by day that goes by, God enables us to live by His purpose that He has for us on this journey. And we are thankful to all the people and churches or organizations that support or host us on our journey. You can find out where we trodding next at

What on earth are you here for?

God bless you. 



What was your dream when you were still young?

Are you what you dreamt to be today when you were still young?
Whether that is a yes or no, it all depends on the foundation and the builders of that dream in that young heart you had then.

I remember those days when as children we dreamt of being doctors, pilots, engineers, presidents, name it yet today, less than 10% are exactly what they always dreamt of being as young children.
So does this mean that it is impossible to attain the dreams we beheld then?
Certainly not, “We believe nothing is impossible with God.”

“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew‬ ‭19:26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Like I said earlier it depends on the foundation and builders. The foundation being reasons why and builders being those and everything around you and who or what speaks in your life.
As Watoto we treasure every dream that our children have because these dreams will rebuild our nation and our world.

Today we bring you 10-year-old Bazil Odong who dreams to be a world changer by telling of the world about the love of Jesus that he believes has changed and transformed his life.



“I am Bazil, when I grow up I want to be a pastor because I want to preach the word of God to the world so that it can be transformed. I love my home back in Watoto Laminadera Village in Gulu, northern Uganda because there are brothers sisters, friends and my mother who love me so much. I have liked so much playing football on tour and my best friend is Toby.

Bazil with his host family on tour

My favourite food is chicken, pork and chips. On tour I have learnt to be kind to people because our hosts have been so kind to us by allowing us in their homes.

I have also learnt to be faithful with what God has given me in life because some people don’t have it.

Bazil came from a broken family before he joined Watoto. He lost his Dad to severe chronic cancer and his mother became so weak because of diseases and taking so much alcohol, therefore she couldn’t take care of Bazil and his siblings anymore. Bazil and his siblings were rescued by Watoto from the harm they were prone to, to a place where they found new hope and family.


Happy Bazil today

Bazil has grown up to a very confident, wise, passionate and jolly child. One thing I know about Bazil, he loves singing or call it worshipping.  No wonder he wants to be a pastor and he is ever smiling no matter what.

He is a such a young soul yet with such a burning passion within his heart for God. His eyes are always looking out for beauty.

I can only imagine what a great world changer he will be then if he is already causing change in people’s lives on tour.


“The levels of success we have are because of the levels of passion we hold.”

During a conversation with Bazil he said two statements that astonished me and I believe you will be too.

“Before I die, I want to make sure I finish all my work (purpose) so then I can die fulfilled.”
Wow! Guess what I expected, sky diving, having children, name it. But what a mind and heart that is within this young soul! A heart that seeks to accomplish his purpose here on earth.

“I advise all the children to work hard so that they can achieve their dreams in future”
He knows and understands that he can only get gold after mining it from underneath.

I don’t know how many children are in the world but one thing I know every child is a gift from God.
Look around you and give a hand to a child whose dream is dying either by giving them a reason to dream, caring, providing for them what they need to live.

“What or where is the world tomorrow if these young souls die or have no reason to dream?”

To all Watoto partners and sponsors, thanks so much for making a difference and giving these children a reason to dream. You are rebuilding the world through your contribution. If you want to make a difference by supporting a child today wherever you are, go to for more information and you can also come meet Bazil and other children on their tour in Asia.

This is a journey of transformation.
“Did you know that your transformation is as good as your life experience?”

The things we see or hear or are part of cause a big influence in who we are hence transformation.

So Question, “What kind of experience is transforming your life?”

Today we bring you our experiences for week sixteen and how they are transforming both us and those we are meeting.

We had a very great first time experience on our arrival in Matsuyama by these friends who became family.
After a long journey from Okayama, we were welcomed with a very delicious African dish. It was made by some Ugandans in Japan. It was a flashback memory moment.

Visiting the Matsuyama castle
You can call this the treasure island. Walking through structures that are more than 400 years old.
We were all amazed by the beauty and designs of this castle and by why everything was built or made the way it was. Very many symbolic things.
More so, we were thrilled by the history it carried. Very interesting and educative.

Such an experience left us with a question, what’s the legacy you making?
“Your legacy is valued as equal as what you will always be remembered for. “

By God’s grace we are living a transformational life that is inspiring and motivating so many across the world through our story.

Concerts and school activities
Two concerts in this land of Matsuyama and it was such a blessing to see so many people moved and touched by our story of Signs & Wonders.


We also visited Matsuyama Higashi High school, where we had fun activities with the school.

We sang and danced together and also played a game together. What a blessing we have to make family and friends wherever we go to a point of they don’t want to let you go.

This is what we call transforming lives by reaching out to them and giving a hope, joy and a reason to celebrate.

Once a farmer said, “just sow the seed, you never know how many birds will find shelter when your tree has blossomed.”
We told our story in Matsuyama to those that came and saw the concert but we are glad that the fruit of our seed in Matsuyama is being eaten by the whole world right now and it’s transforming them with love.

The journey to Osaka was so amazing because it was the first time experience for all of us. Travelling by a ferry the whole night. The experience was very beautiful that some children kept asking after stepping inside the ferry that, “Is this a ferry we are in house or hotel? How come there are no passenger king of seats?” Can you imagine the wonder that was in these children’s minds at that moment?
Well we had good comfortable rooms where we were going to sleep the whole night and wake up in Osaka.
A great start in Osaka with great breakfast.

We then headed to Osaka Jogakuin Junior High and Secondary School were we shared our story both to students and the community there in two concerts.


Kansai Christian School
There are some experiences in life that leave you in wonder. The experience here was phenomenal. We found families that welcomed us into their homes with so much love and the following day, we spent a day with the children and parents at the school.
Before we did a school concert, we had a worship session with the school and teachers and this was so joyful.

We trust deep in our hearts we were blessed as much they were blessed with all the experiences we shared together.

We call this the land with testimonies. One full concert at Kobe Glory Christ church and two half concerts on Sunday at lifehouse church.
At Glory Christ Church after the concert one of the adults shared the love of Jesus and his testimony with a lady who was not Christian and she decided to open up her heart for a relationship with God. This is such a great transformational testimony in the Kingdom of God.


Haruka in the middle gave her life to Jesus Christ.

“One life that decides to return back to home or back to God, there is a joyful noise of praise in the heavens.” We are thankful to God for this testimony.

Mr Kenji Kawabe

He is part of one of the churches in Okayama that organised the concert to happen in Okayama Budokan, the biggest venue we have had. That day he was serving so he never got the full experience of our story but the little he heard inspired him so much that he had to drive for several hours to come to Kobe and watch the concert with no hindrance. He not only watched but he was inspired to pattern with Watoto by sponsoring.

Pastor Rie Manabu and her friends
It’s a blessing to see passionate souls follow your story wherever you go. They drive long hours to come and love and bless you. These beautiful souls came at Lifehouse Church and listened to our story again that they also chose to pattern with Watoto by supporting the Baby Watoto and the Watoto Neighbourhood program.
This is also to thank you all who have loved Watoto and chosen to pattern and support us in every way you can. By doing so, you touch so many with love and hope so God bless you.

A psychologist said, “If you don’t change then change will change you.”
Today we say if you don’t chose what will transform you then anything will transform you. Also remember you live as you have been transformed.
As for us, we are being transformed with the greatest love and that’s the love that’s unfailing, the love of Jesus Christ.
