Meet our team
suzanne mayernick – founder
Suzanne and her husband Mike live in Tennessee and have eight children – 4 through adoption and 4 biological. When Suzanne started the adoption journey in 2005, God opened her heart to a world she never knew existed and called her to serve vulnerable children in a larger capacity. So in 2009, she helped start 147 Million Orphans which provided food, water, medicine, and education to children in Central America, Haiti, Uganda, and America. After 10 years, Suzanne felt God calling her to take her knowledge and experience from 147 Million Orphans and concentrate on growing their existing outreach in Uganda. This nudge from the Lord moved her to start her own ministry: LOVE ONE INTERNATIONAL.
Christine Aloyo – ceo of Uganda projects
A true “angel on earth,” Christine’s life calling has always been ministry – she served with Amazima Ministries for 7 years before moving to Masindi to work for Love+1. Christine is extremely intelligent and oversees all monetary matters on the Ugandan side. She also coordinates and monitors all Love+1 projects on the ground, ensuring that they are functioning as intended and that the funds allotted to each are well-stewarded. Christine embodies the mission of Love+One on a daily basis, loving each one that God places in front of her without hesitation or reservation.
Enoch saaki – director of project management
Enoch was born in Kampala, Uganda's capitol, where he also attended school. He has been serving with us since August 2017. He has been working on child focused projects since 2005. He loves children, people, and above all Jesus. He coordinates all day-to-day operations. He looks into child rescue cases, assesses the individual needs of each child, and he works with the grounds team the best way to respond to each child's need. He makes Jesus being the center of all he does a priority.
Carlos pambala – sustainability project manager
A farming expert and experienced entrepreneur, Carlos oversees all farming-related projects at Love+One. Carlos’s heart for his fellow Ugandans and passion for sustainable development have opened up agricultural opportunities that our American Love+One team could have never dreamed of, much less implemented. Love+One owns a beautiful piece of farm land outside of Masindi that will eventually play an instrumental role in our ministry at the Love+One Center. Our prayer is that this farm-land will be multi-functional; not only will it create jobs for Ugandans, but its output will fund the day-to-day work at the Love+One Center and support the children it serves. Carlos facilitates and manages the progress of this initiative.
