Kabale, Uganda is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Winston Churchill called Uganda the pearl of Africa, and Kabale the Switzerland. In January 2019 I arrived in this peaceful community and I was welcomed with open arms. My journey has taught me faith, hope and love. My journey taught me to judge a man by what he can do without, not what he has. My son was married in October and many clergy blessed his wedding from a different continent ......how cool is that?
I am a project manager and I am inspired by Mr. Jeff, whom I have never met. Jeff was a LMH’er in Uganda years ago, but his talents keep on giving. He served with his wife and family. He assisted with the development of a hospital that continues to serve people today. It is one of the best hospitals in the area.
There are other hospitals in the area, including one only two miles from my house, that can also benefit from LMH’ers like Jeff. We have the most supportive Bishop, Callist Rubaramira, in all the world. This mission will change your life’s perspective.
What does the diocese provide? They can make sure you have a comfortable house within a short distance of the hospital. They can get you all set up with your basic needs. I promise after your 4 month training in Los Angeles with Lay Mission-Helpers, you will have all the wisdom you need. I promise to be a very effective project manager. The Diocese needs a LMH (Imagine YOUR name here). Please, come make a difference in the lives of these amazing Ugandans!
2020 has been a difficult year with the crazy pandemic we've come to know as Covid-19. It forced me home back in March. Although I've loved seeing family, at a distance and masked, I dream of the day I can return to complete my mission in Uganda.
As I've learned and you will too when you join our team, you come thinking you will improve the lives of Ugandans. That you will do my friend, but the added bonus, you will leave Uganda blessed more abundantly than you can imagine.
Enjoy a couple more photos before you start the paperwork to start your mission!
As I finished writing this, I was extremely saddened to hear of the unexpected passing of an amazing Ugandan Priest- Father Evarist Ankwashze. I would like to have him remembered for the great man he was. R.I.P. Father Evarist.
