And so Mission 2019 draws towards the end. We have had an amazing time in the South Rwenzori but now it was back to Nabugabo to think about the last 11 years of Amaha We Uganda and to focus on the future.
Prayerfully we considered success stories and projects we do well. We dialogued, through the help of drama, what would happen if the funding in its present form ceased and there was less money to give. We spent quality time in fellowship and laughed a lot. We shared food, (mostly cooked by Neil), worship and prayer. Neil even introduced the team to eggy bread!
The goat escaped from the van in the dead of night and had the Ugandans running round the grounds, into the lake and out again, before it was caught (and turned into muchomo) and of course the monkeys came back.
Enjoy the next series of photos of our return to Nabugabo followed by the future projects.
And the plan!
We will now be focusing on 4 projects, each project underpinned by mission. The fingers represent each of the 4 projects we will be involved in, going forward. The thumb represents mission and every project will be delivered through that Mission.
A final thought:
Matthew Parris the political writer and former politician and atheist said this when observing progress in impoverished Africa.
"As an atheist, I truly believe that Africa needs God. Now a confirmed atheist, I've become convinced of the enormous contribution that Christian evangelism makes in Africa: sharply distinct from the work of secular NGOs, government projects and international aid efforts. These alone will not do. Education and training alone will not do. In Africa Christianity changes people's hearts. It brings a spiritual transformation. The rebirth is real. The change is good. Removing Christian evangelism from the African equation may leave the continent at the mercy of a malign fusion of Nike, the witch doctor, the mobile phone and the machete."
We have found that to be so true!
