Uganda 2018 – 13th May

Sunday 13th May 2018

An early start today, heading for another confirmation service. This one is also close to the DRC border and in Hope Mugisha’s home village of Buhozi. We arrived for 10am and left at about 2.30pm.Roger discovers that drumming is not his forte!

First order of the day after arriving was our second breakfast. The processing up hill (steeply up hill) to the church.

The church was packed (literally – there was no room to process to the altar as the aisle was full of young adults and children sitting on the floor).

The church was roasting hot😥, but we loved the service and Roger got to preach for 45 minutes. It is a pity that cannot happen often in Ashton-under-Lyne!😏 Should we try to make it possible?Do not fear, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name. You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1-4).

33 young people and one adult from Buhozi parish were confirmed.

It was about 1.30pm when we processed back to the vicar’s house for lunch and 2.30pm when we left to head back to Kisoro.

Two pastoral visits with Bishop Cranmer completed ‘work’ for the day.

The evening was spent at the Bishop’s house with a meal prepared by Phoebe their youngest daughter.
