4000-236-Smagacz, Caleb and Suz

The Smagacz family moved to Uganda in February of 2017 with a passion to serve the children and families of the country. Not sure how it would all work out but confident in God’s call, the Smagacz’s spent years in language and cultural acquisition. In 2020, the call became clearer; Caleb accepted the position of Executive Director with a ministry called Hope Alive!

Hope Alive! serves the children and families of Uganda through a child sponsorship program that seeks to engage children holistically through meeting student’s spiritual, physical, educational, emotional and social needs. Find out more at

Suz has a passion for creating welcoming spaces. She desires to use her God-given gift to be a blessing to the missionaries and ministries of Uganda. She knows first-hand just how important it is to have her home be a refuge from the long and stressful days of ministry. Suz is working to create an interior design ministry to help create a soft landing for new missionaries and to extend the longevity of those already here by helping their home become a refuge from the day’s work.
