A Fruitful Week in Uganda


Theological College.  Pastor Nelson Wesamoya explained  that the vision for the college is “the direct result of ELI’s  training over several years that has impacted thousands of  lives.”  Their vision is an interdenominational college that  trains leaders.  Vicar Noah represented one diocese of the  Church of Uganda and Deacon Arphaxed another.  The COU  is the conservative version of the Anglican Church.  Bishop  Francis is the top leader of the Evangelical Episcopal  Pentecostal fellowship of churches in Uganda, Rwanda and  Tanzania.  Green Pastures, in partnership with ELI, works with hundreds of independents and various other fellowships.
Immediately after the CCI training the Don and Dave met with George Kitabula, headmaster of Green Pasture Secondary and Vocational School, Agnes Wesamoya, a key leader of Wampewo Primary School as well as some teachers.  They discussed how ELI might partner with these schools to help them become “model” schools from which we can send Educational CCIs out to influence other schools.  Wampewo has over 440 primary students and only 12 teachers.  GPSV school has over 160 students.


The Fresh Miller project is a Business as Ministry (BAM) initiative to create a  for-profit business for the express purpose of launching other women  into their own BAM.   ELI met to discuss the business model and strategy  with Stella and  Kenneth, who will lead the business and training.  Pray for this  initiative as we  seek wisdom to move ahead.

Thursday evening, ELI hosted a dinner meeting to encourage and hear reports from our Marriage Certified Course Instructors.  They continue to receive invitations to hold seminars.  Four more are scheduled before this year’s end.  ELI is working itself out of a job as the nationals take up the task.
Friday, Don and Dave traveled to Butalejan, to open a Marriage Seminar taught by the CCIs.  The church was filling up with people and enthusiasm as they departed for the airport.
