Witnessing Jesus Christ and making disciples who work and walk with Him to bring His kingdom rule among all peoples.
Who we are
His-Sickles International Mission (HIM) is fundamentally a Christian mission’s ministry. By this, we mean that Christ’s cause for global worship is our primary pursuit. HIM was founded in the USA in November 2003 and began operations in Yei, South Sudan in June 2005; partnering with Sudan for Christ Ministries, led by Bishop Stanley Lo-Nathan. Raising, sending, and supporting youthful mission endeavors going northward of South Sudan is central to our purpose.
Over the years, HIM has strategically focused 80% of its resources, time, and experience on developing youths, young adults, school teachers, church workers, and womenfolk. The spiritual formation of these groups of people by way of discipleship, education, and empowerment, from the classrooms, fields of play to the marketplace, has been our strategy. Thus, schools, professionals but especially school teachers, and students have been both our turf and targets for Christ’s Kingdom advancement and national transformation.
On account of the insecurities in South Sudan from July 2016, HIM relocated to Arua, Uganda, and is formally registered with the appropriate national authorities. As we plot our way into this new region, we acknowledge with deep concern the various needs and challenges, to which we have already begun to engage, serving as God’s vessels for solution, leadership, growth, and transformation.
Refugee Missions Response (RMR)
Almost 1million South Sudanese refugees are currently hosted in northern Uganda, with diverse challenges. We are making efforts to improve their quality of life, from spiritual formation, education for students, recreation for youths, entrepreneurship skills, and business support for families, beginning at Ocea Settlement in Rhinocamp, to Imvepi and Bidibidi.
Capacity Building for Clergy/Believers (CBCB)
On account of the great need we’ve seen among believers and their leaders here, we are committed as a ministry to encouraging, maturing, edifying, and equipping the Body of Christ through tailored courses, pieces of training, and retreats for its spiritual and emotional development. We believe in capacity building that produces personal heart transplants, leading to national and global transformation. We shall serve as networking agents, linking Ministries, and Ministers to tested and proven Kingdom solutions, and resources where possible.
Discipleship - Youth and Women Development (YWD)
At the core of our ministry thrust is youth development, discipleship, and deployment for kingdom advancement. Schools are our key platforms for ministry expression. Discipling youths, teachers and training the untrained among them are part of our core strategy. Our understanding of the powerful roles the womenfolk plays within every community endear them to our pursuit. Equipping the girlchild and women are major thrusts in HIM.
Cross-Cultural Missions/Evangelism Thrust (CCMET)
With our heart set on directly engaging a few of the vast unreached peoples in north Sudan, we acknowledge with awe that the West Nile region is strategically located and holds a good collection of other faiths of interest. We are here to mobilize the Body of Christ to engage the harvest more effectively, more purposefully and most importantly, cross-culturally. We shall be connecting and networking with Ministries and Churches pursuing this agenda and helping establish and accomplish our common vision for Christ’s global reign.
We exist to discover, disciple, and deploy to the nations, passionate believers in Jesus Christ, who’ll live for the glory of God, the advancement of the gospel, and transformation in every sphere of human endeavor.

Missions, Equipping, Discipleship, Integrity, Authenticity (MEDIA)
The name: His-Sickles is taken from the scriptures in Revelations 14:14-16 “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.”
