Missionary Spotlight
Matt & Sheri Winkler

Serving in Uganda, Africa

Hello! We are Matt and Sheri Winkler, missionaries to Uganda, East Africa. We have six children, Andrew, Timothy, Nathan, Noah (twins), Christianna and Ethan. As a teenager, Matt felt the Lord calling him into full-time service and later missions. So he went to Pensacola Christian College where he got a degree in missions and met his wife, Sheri. We got married December 23, 1999. From there we both took teaching positions in the Christian school out of Calvary Baptist Church in Fort Walton Beach, FL. While at Calvary God called us to Uganda during our 2001 missions conference.

A Changed Life
The Testimony of Abel

Then I was very young my parents placed me under the tutelage of Islamic priests. When I went to them I went along with two dromedary milk cows. While I stayed with them I did not get very much to eat, just a little millet gruel or something. Whenever I became old enough to understand what was going on, I began to try to flee from these priests. I would run back towards home; many times they would follow me and catch me at the well. They would tie me up and beat me. They would carry me back to their encampment. I gained a better general understanding of things, and then I just refused to try and learn anymore. So I left the Quranic school altogether.
