Abaana & CMSI Update (5)

Tuesday 17th April

We were again at the Clergy Retreat, and the Pastors were again thankful for us being there.

The Pastors appear to be settling in together, are opening up to us, and are telling us their stories of what they went through in South Sudan, and then on their journeys to Arua. This has been a steep learning curve of our knowledge of what these Pastors have been through.

Abaana & CMSI Update (4)

Wednesday 11th April

Visit to Byobe Church of Uganda School. The school was well managed, and yet the Headmaster was so accommodating of what we wanted to do. This led to the children being so accepting of us, wanting to take in what we had to say, and that they really engaged in what we had to say. All age groups from P1 to P7 entered into, and enjoyed the time, with joy.

Tuesday 10th April
Today we felt the rain down in Africa.

In the morning we visited the Heroes Street Kids in Kampala.

These are boys from the street who have given a commitment to enter into attending the classes twice a week, where they have a shower, have lessons, and get a small meal. Our perception was that they are just wee boys, like any other boys, and the project is their ray of hope.

First Update from the Yei team

Lisburn Cathedral Team set to travel to support friends in Yei

On Friday April 6 a team from Lisburn Cathedral will travel to Arua, Uganda, close to the border with South Sudan, where they will work with Bishop Hilary of Yei and the Church of South Sudan. Bishop Hilary and hundreds of thousands of refugees from South Sudan currently live in the huge camps in this part of northern Uganda, having had to flee their homes due to ongoing civil war. A team from the Cathedral had hoped to go to South Sudan in 2016, but due to the outbreak of war things had to be put on hold.
