Join us this Sunday for a special presentation during our worship service from the teams who recently went to Uganda and Peru. Before and after the service, the members of both teams will have tables set up in the Connections Corridor. This is a great opportunity to talk to them about their trips and learn ways you can engage in global mission. They will also be holding a fundraiser with items from both Peru and Uganda.
After the traumatizing effects of a 20 year civil war that led to the displacement of 1.7 million people, the Anglican Diocese of Northern Uganda faces the challenge of healing and rebuilding their community. Because women with few resources shoulder the burden of caring for their families, our mission partners in Gulu seek to provide opportunities for women to receive Christ-centered healing from trauma, learn basic life skills, discover the means to make a living through vocational training, and grow as entrepreneurs in community through regional conferences. It has often been said that when you invest in women you change a nation. Click here for a PDF with more info.
Take a look at the video below from the team who recently visited Uganda. It opens with a testimony about Being Blind for God's Glory, has clips of worship and three different clergy giving thanks for funds provided by the Clergy Children's Scholarship program.
