Chimbila, Nelson & Maggie

Serving the Lord with Teen Missions in Uganda


Meet the Chimbilas


Greetings from Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. My name is Nelson Chimbila and my wife is Maggie Chimbila. We have three children; our daughter Promise, our son Praise, and our youngest daughter is called Precious. We are originally from Zambia.
We are grateful to God and our Director, Mr. Bland, for the opportunity given to us to serve at the Uganda Teen Missions Base as coordinators. In Uganda, we run three Boot Camps. One at the main base in Nakabango Village (Jinja Town) where we have youth coming from Uganda and Tanzania to attend the camp. We also run Boot Camps at the Koboko base, which is near the borders of Congo and South Sudan, and at Bugoi, which we call the “Promised Land”, in eastern Uganda. Apart from the Boot Camps, we also have a BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK Training Center where we train young people in Bible and work ministry in order for them to become missionaries. In addition to that ministry, we also do school and church ministry. We share the Word of God in different schools in Jinja twice a week on Thursdays and Fridays, in churches, it’s mainly on Sundays. We also have a children’s ministry called Motorcycle Sunday School Mission whereby we go within our communities to minister to the children about the Word of God through puppets, music, games and phonics classes.
