Summary

Favor International is a movement serving and training national leaders in East African war zones to sustainably change their communities with the power of the Gospel.

Currently working in northern Uganda and South Sudan, Favor sees whole communities and nations transformed by the Gospel being applied to every part of life, from health to education to economic empowerment - all rooted in transformation of the heart. Transformed, national leaders holistically fit Biblical solutions to local needs and see life-changing results for whole villages and regions.

Our international partnerships serve, train, and empower nationals to impact their local communities in the context of God-sustained movements. We pray, live sacrificially, and do whatever it takes to align our lives with God's purposes and methods for particular people groups in particular lands and contexts.

History

Favor is an organization grounded in Uganda and South Sudan that first began in Uganda in 2004 in response to God's heart for northern Uganda during the most horrific war in African history.

The vision was birthed by corporate prayer in 2002 by Ugandans and founder Carole Ward in the midst of civil war to see God's transformation of leaders and the region.

Through God's miraculous proliferation of the Gospel, discipleship, and mobilized prayer movements, the previously unconquerable child-soldier armies of Joseph Kony and the LRA were conquered. It led to an uneasy peace by 2006, but God really dug in to uproot the kingdom of evil. So much so that Kony's right-hand general, who converted to Christianity and attended Favor's Bible school, credited one of Favor's specific prayer gatherings for ending the war.

Along with other nameless, faceless heroes of the faith whose prevailing prayers ended the crisis, Favor immediately went to work bringing the Gospel with discipleship, empowerment, training, and mobilization to every corner of northern Uganda.
