Steve and Bridget are long-time friends of Common Ground that followed God’s call to Northern Uganda in the fall of 2012. They have been serving as the in-country directors of Otino Waa Children’s Village in Lira since August 2015. Steve and Bridget have two children, Ethan and Evelyn.
The Hurry family has a heart for serving and loving “the least of these” in Northern Uganda and, through their lives, have shared the Good News of Jesus Christ to those they encounter every day. Their lives are a reflection of His Grace and love, offering Ugandans hope and a brighter future.
Otino Waa Children’s Village is an orphanage that cares for approximately 300 orphans. The orphans are brought into a new family unit consisting of 8 children and cared for by a house mom who is a widow from the community. At Otino Waa they are sheltered, clothed, have access to medical care, clean water & nutritious food.
Their approach to orphan ministry goes beyond meeting just the physical needs; they strive to holistically address these children's educational, psychological, spiritual and emotional needs and provide a place for the children to develop and mature while healing from their broken pasts.
