On Monday I’ll be in Uganda for 10 days visiting friends and hopefully making a valuable contribution in a few different ways.
I fly to Kigali in Rwanda on 13th and hopefully cross the border that evening into Uganda to stay at Kisoro for 3 nights. I hope that I’ll get a chance to visit two projects that churches in Ashton Deanery have funded at Nyakimanga, a village near the Rwandan border and at Sesame Girl’s School near the Cathedral in Kisoro. I’ll be staying with Rt. Revd. Cranmer Mugisha, Bishop of Muhabura and his wife Hope.
I then find my way to Kampala where I have been asked to take the wedding of Stephen and Brenda. Steve was a teenager the second time I went to Uganda in 1997 and it is a real privilege to be asked to take their wedding service. The picture is from their giving away ceremony earlier this year.
This will be my 5th visit to Uganda! People in Ashton may remember visits from Uganda to Ashton by a number of friends: SimonPeter Kansiime, Revd. John and Alice Tumusiime, Bp. Cranmer and Hope Mugisha. It has been good to establish a partnership in the Gospel with friends from Uganda!
