Each month we want to highlight one of our Missions Partners who help spread the Gospel throughout the world.

This month we are focusing on the Mighty River Project, founded and led by Erin & Scott Littleton who are a big part of our church family here at Bridges.  Here is a chance to get to know them a little better.

What are the top 3 things people should know about your ministry?

  1. We partner with vulnerable Ugandan mamas and grandmothers to offer them family support through economic development, medical care, education, and discipleship.
  2. The women we serve make gorgeous baskets to support themselves and those baskets are available for purchase on our website (
  3. We employ a team of Ugandans who love Jesus, who understand the culture and advise us with wisdom, and who are truly committed to and passionate about their work supporting these vulnerable families.

One of the success stories from our program is Gloria, who is the daughter of our lead basket artisan, Dorothy. Because of the stable income Dorothy received from her work making baskets with The Mighty River Project, she was able to send Gloria to school for her dream job -- nursing. We are seeing the ripple effects of a stronger family, and now Gloria is a mama and is able to provide stable income for her daughter whose name is Blessing. As these families are strengthened, changes are happening across future generations of Ugandans. 

What is 1 key thing people should know about you? 

We got married in 2005, right after we graduated from UNC, and went straight to Uganda to serve in an orphanage for 6 months; we've loved the country of Uganda and its people for our entire marriage! 

What does following Jesus look like in your life?

Focusing on loving God and loving others; surrender to His plan even when we don't understand it; preaching the gospel to ourselves moment by moment (as Tim Keller says, "The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.")

How can we be praying for you?

We'd be so grateful for prayer for…

  • wisdom, vision, and direction as we seek to lead this ministry well
  • the families in our program, for provision and growth and that each person we reach will follow Jesus
  • our Ugandan staff who are doing the hard work of walking beside vulnerable families as they heal
  • the kids in our sponsorship program, that they'll finish the school year strong (they're about to head into the 3rd and final term of this academic year)

Please join us in praying for Erin & Scott, their family, and for the Mighty River Project. We are humbled by the opportunity to partner with them.
