Many people in Uganda speak English, so we do not have a heavy translation restriction when we visit. Half of the population of this African country is under 15 years old. This exposes them as prey to occult militias such as the Lord’s Resistance Army, and they are abducted and used as soldiers or sex slaves. They also face poverty and disease, which includes HIV and AIDS. However, there is a light shining brightly in Uganda through the ministries of Isaac, Samuel, Gloria, and Dawson, each of whom we ordained during 2018 & 2019 visits. We have grown to love them and their zeal for Christ. After pastoral visits and education, WordWalk helped the team of four register and receive non-profit status as Mission Advance, Uganda.
Updated 4/3/2020: To help battle the covid 19 virus as they continue to minister the gospel, Isaac, the administrative coordinator of Mission Advance, has procured a pass from the Office of the President of Uganda to travel, purchase and supply needs without hindrance of authorities. Our opportunity is to supply funding for the supplies and for the fuel necessary to travel from Kampala to the villages. The need for anti-virus supplies is compounded with a growing concern about hunger, because the government has shut down the food stores.
