Where We Work
In July a team of three had planned to provide training for 40 children’s workers in the Western Ugandan city of Kisoro. However, the trip was postponed due to Joe Cox’s sudden attack of diverticulitis. Tentatively, we are planning to return to do introductory Model Children’s Worker seminars in Kisoro and also in Kampala (the capital city) in November of 2012. We have had the privilege of hosting two key Ugandan Christian leaders in our home. Both visits were very helpful in gaining a greater understanding of the needs of the country and in creating appropriate strategies for establishing a national EGM ministry there. Due to the conflict in Eastern Congo, we changed our July plans to visit Goma and Kinshasa. However, in early August, we received an exciting report from the team in Goma, DRC. In the three month period preceding the report, they had followed up with 3 churches to do evaluations of Sunday.
