Youth Mission Trip to Uganda | Blog 2

For the past two days the team have been in Strathearn Primary School, Kampala, which has about 300 students. From the moment we arrived at the school, where we were by mobbed by small children shouting ‘muzungu!’ (literally, ‘white person’) we were made to feel very welcome by teachers and pupils alike. Neville and Vicky gave talks on David and Mary, and the rest of the team helped lead crafts, games and songs, as well as teaching them memory verses from Philippians 4.13 and Isaiah 43.1. Special thanks should go to our helpers Sarah and JP for translating Norn Iron into Lugandan or plain English as required! The children were so joyful and brought a smile to all our faces and it was a shame to say goodbye.

After finishing at the school this morning the team helped host a dinner for the Abaana staff here at the guesthouse as a thank you for all their efforts over the past few months. Even having known them for only a few days we have already been so blessed and encouraged by their hospitality. The team had some downtime this evening and enjoyed some ice cream sundaes at Café Javas (thanks Paula Wright!). We are looking forward to heading to Streetreach tomorrow to work with street children, and are grateful for your ongoing prayers. Have a scroll at some pics below...

From Owen, Emily, Erin and Zoe.
