Serving God in Gulu, Northern Uganda

I first came to Uganda to volunteer at the Watoto Baby homes in Kampala & Suubi Village. My first trip lasted for 2 months, from November 2011 until January 2012. This trip happened as: I had a burning desire in my heart for Africa & needed to respond. Obviously it was a desire that God had initiated. Returning home to Australia after this trip I did a 1 year Bible course - one of the best years of my life. I wanted to return to Uganda each day after leaving the country, but I chose to wait for God’s timing.

My second trip to Uganda was last year for the whole of 2016. I felt God’s nudging mid 2015 saying it was time. So off I went to do a 6 month discipleship course with Watoto Church in Kampala. After this discipleship course I went to Gulu in Northern Uganda for 5 months. Where I volunteered with a woman’s ministry called Living Hope. This ministry is under Watoto Church. 

I am now in Uganda for the third time. This year I am spending 9 months in Uganda, I arrived here in late February & I will be leaving end of November 2017. For the whole 9 months I am continuing the volunteering position I began in July 2016 with Living Hope Gulu in Northern Uganda. My role with Living Hope is to profile each lady in the program. This involves: taking the ladies photographs, sitting with each lady to ask her about her upbringing & all that has happened in her life, writing this story down & then typing it up for her profile. I also help with morning devotions & disciplining the ladies: through Biblical teaching, counselling & relationship building. Even though this is my third trip to Uganda I sense that God is still preparing me & teaching me about ministry. The Acholi culture in Northern Uganda is contrastingly different to the Australian culture I grew up in. It could take me years to really understand & appreciate this culture. Through talking to the ladies I am becoming more aware of the harsh realities in which they grew up in. I am observing reoccurring patterns in the ladies stories: extreme poverty, lack of family values, early pregnancy, abandonment by the babies father, single motherhood, another man, more pregnancies & the cycle of poverty continues. Everything I am learning this year is causing me to prayerfully consider the most effective way to minister to the Acholi people in the long term. I guess I feel like I am still being prepared for what is to come!
