Founder Pastor Charles Luutu narrates the Aglom & his personal story
The Armours of Glory Ministries story, Founder Pastor Charles Luutu tells his personal and organization story.
I was born on 31/12/1973 In a village called Kitto in Luwero District, Central Uganda in the East Africa region. My parents gave birth to me when they
were still young and in school.
I believe my mother was naturally kind to everyone. She was unsure exactly of
who my father was in that, two men claimed me. I was lucky because
many children in Uganda have no parents that claim them. My first
father gave me a name and the second gave me another until the D.N.A.
test proved who the real father was
My mother left me with my grandmother when I was 6 Months old.
Each time she could try to take me to my father's home, step mothers could beat me up seriously. By time, there was no law on child protection if it was there, it was not respected.
Of the two men who claimed me, none was willing to take me to school but God used good Samaritans to pay my tuition up to O-Level, I then joined a professional driving school and became a good driver.
The father I have now had 8 wives, who used to beat me. My fathers is Muslim and in our village there was only one school, which was a Muslim school.
I thank God who chose me the way I was, and I gave my life to Jesus Christ at the age of 18 years. Since then, my life has changed. After my driving school, I got a job at Ridar Hotel Mukono as a driver.
It was at this job that I met a group of three strangers from America, who later impacted my life in a special way. Three of them Louie Madura, Doug Collins and Steve Grandmeire.
They asked about my life story & future plans, after a conversation with them, they decided to pay for my tuition at the bible college, on completion I started ministry not only as a Pastor but also a vital member of the community; who takes care of orphans, vulnerable children and other people who are in need.
I have a son called Luutu Elyon Jesse of 10 years who currently I stay with together with other people under my care.
Since I grew up in a lot of agony, 2006 the Lord called me in ministry and 2013 I officially registered Armours Of Glory Ministries as a Christian based Organization registration No. 80020001536446 in Uganda with other 4 Directors. Namely; Nakintu Norah a Mother of my Child, Pastor Mutala Daniel, Sselunjoji Henry and Pastor Kyaligamba Mary.
After registering the ministry, we started visiting prisons and friends from Church of God World Mission could help us with transport and a box of soap to take to prisoners.
I and the Mother of my child started by helping a child called Kansiime Daisy, a total orphan who we sensed was at the verge of succumbing to the notorious early marriage threat. When she reached in Primary seven, God gave us a sponsor Mr. Mark Douglas Collins who supported us through high school.
When Daisy had just joined University, Mr. Douglas Collins (the sponsor) passed on. We thank God for his ex-wife who took took over and gave us immense support. By the Grace of God - Daisy graduated on 17th- January- 2020.
The ministry now has 59 children and 10 adults under our care. My heart beats for children especially those who are in need.
I encourage & invite everyone to join me in this noble cause.
Thank you very much and may God bless you.
