Lester and Debbie Dornon
Serving in: Nepal
Dr. Lester and Debbie Dornon are missionaries with the General Board of Global Ministries, assigned as senior physician at the Tansen Hospital in western Nepal. The Dornon's returned to Nepal and Tansen as missionaries in mid-2012, having served there from 1990 to 2002.
The hospital in Tansen is related to the United Mission to Nepal, established in 1954 as a partnership between the people of Nepal and a coalition of 20 Christian organizations on four continents. The United Methodist Church has a long association with this medical mission. Nepal is a small country high in the Himalayan Mountains, where poverty is widespread and health facilities in limited supply.
Rev. Ayub Mugabi
Serving in: Iganga, Uganda
Beginning in 2020, The Fount sought to support the ministry of Rev. Ayub Mugabi and his wife, Agnes, in Iganga, Uganda, Africa. Rev. Mugabi is the pastor of God of Grace United Methodist Church in Iganga, and he and his wife are principals for the Community for New Life Organization, which runs a school for over 200 children. They feed and offer spiritual guidance to the children as well as basic education.
Rev. Mugabi and our pastor, Rev. Glen Haworth, video chat with each other every week, praying for one another and encouraging one another in their ministries. We had hoped to bring the Mugabi’s to America in the summer of 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted those plans. The hope is to bring them here once the pandemic clears and travel is once again recommended.
