From Our Leader:
I am so thankful to be coordinating a trip for my church, First Baptist of Lyman South Carolina. I have traveled to Uganda three times and love the people and children there like my family. Now, I’m so happy to share my beloved church family with my Ugandan family as we make a journey together this December.
What a wonderful time of year to celebrate and share the Gospel, the gift of Jesus Christ. Join us for some time spent doing construction and VBS. We also have an opportunity to do theological training, lead by Jim Carey and Joey Bodie, pastors from First Lyman with a local church in Uganda.
Come be a part of what God is doing and see Him build relationships between His church, from a little town in South Carolina to a little village in Uganda.
Uganda is An East African country bordered by South Sudan, DRC, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya, Uganda is often associated with violence, abject poverty, child soldiers, and widespread communicable diseases.
According to the 2012 UNICEF in Uganda report, the country is, however, experiencing growth in development—“The under-five mortality rate is dropping steadily, families are rising above the poverty line, and the economy is growing.” With a population over 33 million, half of Ugandan’s are under the age of 18 and 1.2 million are estimated to be orphaned by AIDS alone. Less than half of the child population is protected from malaria and
Uganda continues to be ranked as one of the 30 countries in the world with the highest death rate of children under 5 years of age.
One Orphan mission teams will be working to combat these statistics, visiting our orphanage and ministry partners in the country.
