Mission to Northern Uganda

On the 5th of April, a team of eleven set out from Nairobi on a mission to Lang’o Diocese in Northern Uganda. Lucy and Dave were active in helping to plan for the mission but decided to forego the 20 hour bus ride this year. The team traveled at the invitation of Church Army evangelist, Bishop Charles Odurkami who has been serving in the war torn region for most of his life. As Church Army’s first official missionary caravan, the team of Officers and evangelists engaged in numerous mission activities. These include; primary and secondary school outreaches, technical schools and college outreaches, open air meetings, person to person evangelism and church meetings. They ministered across Apac and Lira Archdeaconries visiting several schools and churches each day and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.

“God was definitely tangible” one of the officers exclaimed after the last open air crusade. In an area hard hit by war and wrestling with issues of reconciliation and forgiveness, many people responded to the gospel message. During the mission, 3,550 people made decisions for Jesus Christ. This includes 1092 people from Apac Archdea-conry and 2458 from Lira Archdeaconry.
