Good Shepherds Fold is a partner of Global Outreach.

Global Outreach is a nondenominational missions and development organization that trains, sends, and supports missionaries in a wide variety of contexts around the world. Our home office in Tupelo, MS serves as a financial and communications hub for our missionaries. We have a 100% policy: one hundred percent of gifts designated for a specific missionary or project go there without any being taken off the top by our home office.

Our Team

Mark + Amy Gwartney
Mark + Amy GwartneyGSF Team Leader + Director of Childcare
Mark and Amy Gwartney serve at Good Shepherd’s Fold orphanage in Uganda. GSF is now a multi-faceted ministry sitting on 100+ acres of land which is a place of refuge for many hurting people in Uganda. Mark and Amy moved with their three children (Caralina, Megan, and Titus) to GSF in 2008. Mark is team leader and loves teaching the staff and local pastors how to study the word of God. Amy directs Child care, encouraging, discipling and training the mothers. The Gwartney family lives on the GSF campus with a desire to see many other children brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Thank you for supporting Mark and Amy’s work for the glory of God!
