Field of Dreams
In 2006, one of our founders was walking along the dirt trails of our recently purchased 25 acre property in Uganda. Suddenly, Mike was reminded of the famous line in the movie, Field of Dreams, “If you build it, He will come.” He began to have a clearer vision of God’s heart for this property and knew that amazing things would occur when SMI began to build!
Mike could see:
lives being transformed by the power of love;
broken hearts of the orphaned and abandoned being mended
dreams & purposes of people ignited when they served with SMI in Uganda.
The base was then named “Field of Dreams” because of this inspiration.
Since that time, we have seen this vision being fulfilled. Multitudes of people have come and served with Show Mercy staying at our Field of Dreams missions base. The Field of Dreams is our central base of operations for all of our outreaches in Uganda and includes the following:
Team and intern accommodations
Long term missionary accommodations.
A large multi-purpose facility called the Ark used for gatherings and fellowship
One Thing Training Center
Birthing Center/Maternity Ward
5 Acre farm- Farming God's Way
Fresh water well which benefits both the compound and the people of the village of Nawanswa/Kaliti.
This is more than just a project – it’s a strategy – a perfect time to make a mark in history!
Join with us today as we continue to build the Field of Dreams and train a generation of leaders.
